Former WWE wrestler explains the difficulty of separating stardom from reality in his personal life.
“I made a lot of regrettable, bad decisions in my life,” he admitted. “Many times, the decisions we make affect and hurt your closest friends and family the most. I have a lot of regrets, in that regard. But God has forgiven me, which I am very thankful for. It has enabled me to forgive myself and move forward one day at a time.”
Luger credits the start of his personal redemption to “a jail chaplain who came into my life. When I got out [of jail], he chased me down.” The chance meeting would change the decorated legend’s outlook on life completely, starting him on a path to reform his life for the better.
“He shared the Sinner’s Prayer and the Plan of Salvation in a hotel room on April 23, 2006,” said the former champion. “My life from then on has been a supernatural transformation. At that point, I had pretty much given up hope. But now I know that, by God’s grace and mercy, none of us have to.”
