This week on Wrestle Buddies, GameSpot’s professional wrestling podcast, Chris E. Hayner and Mat Elfring present two of the most notable strange occurrences in the professional wrestling industry during the 1990s. And, shockingly, one of them had almost nothing to do with pro wrestling. Still, they both somehow included Lex Luger.
First up, we head back to 1999 and WCW’s infamous finger poke of doom. Do you remember the time Hulk Hogan beat Kevin Nash for the WCW World Championship by tapping him on the chest? Of course, you do, because you’re as ridiculous as we are. What you might not remember is Goldberg’s role in the entire debacle, how it was obviously a sign of the times in WCW, and which incarnation of the NWO was involved.
Then, we’re jumping even further back in time to revisit Vince McMahon’s first non-wrestling endeavor. Sure, you remember the XFL. What about the WBF, though? Once upon a time, Vince loved bodybuilding so much that he launched the World Bodybuilding Federation. You might not know that, though, because it didn’t last very long. Still, like with the finger poke of doom, Lex Luger somehow plays a role–as does Incredible Hulk star Lou Ferrigno and an episode of the game show Family Feud.
