Someone Bought This: Lex Luger’s patriotic pillow!

17 Submitted by on Thu, 03 July 2014, 02:00

The latest episode of WWE Warehouse brings us four patriotic things, including a U.S flag themed throw pillow from Lex Luger’s Lex Express bus!

We even get footage of Lex resting his weary America-loving head upon the pillow, catching a quick nap before he’s off to shake babies and kiss hands.


Strike that! Reverse it!

Anyway, I’m with Joey- I was hoping they had the Lex Express bus parked out back, too!

Sadly, it was not to be. The Lex Express seems to be lost to time and history.

But at least we have one of its pillows preserved 21 years later!

    A pillow from the Lex Express. Really?

    Let’s think about this, shall we?

    First, Vince tried to make Sid into the new Hogan.

    A year later, he turned Luger babyface and tried to make *him* the new Hogan.

    Two years after that, he put the big belt on Nash in his attempt to make HIM the new Hogan.

    All three attempts failed. Miserably.

    And the following year, he decided to let a WCW outcast just be himself…..and a legend was born.

    Clearly, “a new Hogan” was NOT what Vince needed. I wonder who finally convinced him to stop doing that.

    No real point with this, just food for thought.

      Yeah its a good thing Vince finally stopped trying to create “a new Hogan” who always overcomes the odds and saves the day time and time again for 9 years straight……..

      Glad there’s nobody on the current roster like that at all. :/

    • Guest says:

      Yeah I never got the idea Vince tried to turn any of those 3 into the next Hogan, Luger maybe on second thought) but definitely not Nash or Sid guys who worked a lot better than heels than faces and never had the draw that Hogan had.

    Image of Pettingzoo burning into my brain. Think of the sheer terror of waking up from a nap and seeing the ghoulish visage of Todd Massengill staring at you with that look. I’d like to think the Lex Express is still out there driving around going from ghost town to ghost town in a never ending quest to find it’s way back to Titan Towers. People only speak of it in whispers over camp fires like the legend of the hook handed killer. AND IT’S RIGHT THERE BEHIND YOU!!!!!!

  3. Andre R. says:

    You’re absolutely right of course. I was clearly referring only to the 90’s WWF/E, pre-Attitude Era. Oopsie.

  4. Mr. Glen says:

    Well, at least they haven’t showcased Jameson’s pillow from the Bobby Heenan show yet (please tell me they haven’t).

    Makes you wonder if the Lex Express bus was converted into the DX Express bus that Austin destroyed on Smackdown! with a construction crane back in 2000.

    Since I am from Europe, where the regional, national and EU flag without exception hangs parallelly outside the town halls, I find these “Jingoistic” wrestling themes with the central government flag plastered all over the place somewhat fascinating.

    Have there ever been a “state’s rights”-themed wrestling character or gimmick?

    • George from Dudleyville NY says:

      Do southern wrestlers with the “Stars and Bars” aka confederate flag count? First thought was freebirds, but they represented different states but all southern ones I believe. Buh Buh Ray Dudley wore confederate bandana in ECW I believe just for his heel hillbilly character, while teaming with an African American man. Confederat currency what’s his name Chris summin from indie circuit and pre folding ECW. Just off hand. Probably there’s more I’m forgetting.

    • John C says:

      Van Hammer was in a constent state of confusion, does that count?

    Eddie’s jacket was tremendously cool. Surprised that WWE actually had something touching.

  8. George from Dudleyville NY says:

    Vince finally getting his new Hogan in Cena was a blessing. If any problem occurred you put belt back on Hulkamania (Warrior situation). If any problems occur you put belt back on Cenation (Bryan’s neck). All of the magazines, talk shows, cereal boxes, make-a-wish foundation request. I’m not for or against Cena. But Vince couldn’t do that with Sid, Nash, Luger ect. Being king of the hill for this long can’t be ignored. I turned on Hulk for Warrior in 89′-’90 just as I grew tired of his act, but my little cousin found wrestling and Hulkamania in WCW in ’94. For every kid who turns on there star or grows up, a new younger kid finds wrestling and it’s superhero everyday. Vince is almost due for his new superhero.

    • Mister Forth says:

      This time, instead of slamming someone on a ship, Cena has to act like he never used the FU on Big Show.

      P.S. I want to think Rose found the bus.
