LEX LUGER'S CHOKE-TASTIC TRIVIA!
luger1.jpg
I was going to make 14 questions, but only 13 of them would have been good. Then the novelty wore off at the usual six. Enjoy!

THE QUESTIONS:

1) The first time Lex Luger choked on PPV was when he challenged Ric Flair for the NWA World title at the Great American Bash 1988. Why was this match stopped?

2) The second time Lex Luger choked on PPV was when he challenged Flair again at Starrcade 88. What was the stipulation for this match?

3) Let's not forget Lex Luger choking when he lost the NWA U.S. title to
Michael Hayes at WrestleWar 89. Who interfered to give Hayes the win?

4) Then Lex Luger choked again at Halloween Havoc 90 when he lost the U.S. gold yet again. Who beat Luger at this show, thus handing Luger his only loss ever at a Havoc PPV?

5) Then there was the time Lex Luger choked when he challenged Yokozuna for the WWF World title at Summerslam 93. What were the two stips for this match?

6) In the summer of 1995, both Lex Luger and Davey Boy Smith choked in their many futile attempts to defeat Yoko & Owen Hart for the WWF Tag straps. What was the collective name of the Luger/DBS team?

 
 
THE ANSWERS:

1) The first time Lex Luger choked on PPV was when he challenged Ric Flair for the NWA World title at the Great American Bash 1988. Why was this match stopped?

A: Luger was bleeding "excessively."

2) The second time Lex Luger choked on PPV was when he challenged Flair again at Starrcade 88. What was the stipulation for this match?

A: The DQ rule was waived (had Flair been DQed or counted out, the title
would have changed hands).

3) Let's not forget Lex Luger choking when he lost the NWA U.S. title to
Michael Hayes at WrestleWar 89. Who interfered to give Hayes the win?

A: Terry "Bamm Bamm" Gordy.

4) Then Lex Luger choked again at Halloween Havoc 90 when he lost the U.S. gold yet again. Who beat Luger at this show, thus handing Luger his only
loss ever at a Havoc PPV?

A: Stan Hansen.

5) Then there was the time Lex Luger choked when he challenged Yokozuna for the WWF World title at Summerslam 93. What were the two stips for this match?

A: Luger had to wear a big bulky pad over his bionic metal forearm, plus he wouldn't get a rematch for the title.

6) In the summer of 1995, both Lex Luger and Davey Boy Smith choked in their many futile attempts to defeat Yoko & Owen Hart for the WWF Tag straps. What was the collective name of the Luger/DBS team?

A: The Allied Powers.

SATIRE: DISCONTINUED WWE XMAS PRODUCTS!

by Sean Carless

With Christmas just around the corner, what better way to spend your few remaining dollars (left over after the seemingly infinite line-up of fucking pay-per-views ) then on the following "quality WWE merchandise!" After all, if they don't move this stuff, and fast, stockholders just might get time to figure out what "plummeting domestic buyrates" means!... and well, I don't think they need to tell you what that means! (Seriously. They're not telling you. Everything is fine! Ahem.).
