/ -- "Wrestling with the Devil: The True Story of a World Champion Professional Wrestler--His Reign, Ruin, and Redemption" by former superstar professional wrestler Lex Luger and co-written with John D. Hollis.
Luger, wrestling mega-sensation and three-time world heavyweight champion, ruled the ring for years as "The Total Package." Whether he was making a dramatic entrance from a helicopter, defeating champion Hulk Hogan, or sculpting a near-perfect physique, Lex was on top of his game.
Yet backstage, he was wrestling with addictions to sex, drugs, and alcohol--things he clung to even when his mistress died suddenly of a drug overdose and Lex went to jail. There, Luger faced the truth: he was losing the fight of his life. And still awaiting him was the most brutal opponent yet, when the wrestling champ found himself helplessly paralyzed from the neck down.
In "Wrestling with the Devil" Luger reveals never-before-told stories from his career, his struggle with personal demons, and how, through unexpected faith, grace, and redemption, he overcame all odds It also features a foreword written by fellow wrestler Steve "Sting" Borden
