As we noted before, today is the 12 year death anniversary of the “First Lady Of Wrestling” Miss Elizabeth. Elizabeth died due to acute toxicity as she mixed painkillers with Vodka.


During her final days, she was living with former WCW World Heavyweight Champion Lex Luger. In the video posted below, Lex Luger talks about what exactly happened on that night.

Lex Luger & Miss Elizabeth

Luger talked about watching a movie one night with Liz and Liz dosed up a couple of times. He then brought some food and Liz passed out while eating. He thought it was weird and finally found out that she was unconscious. Luger then called 911.

Luger said they were partying with alcohol and pills – painkillers and muscle relaxers. He acknowledged the fact that these pills are not supposed to be mixed with alcohol. He thought that Liz would be fine but he was completely shocked when he came to know that Liz couldn’t make it.

Luger talks about emotionally breaking down after hearing the sad news. Luger said he was on a second chance from his wife and he promised that he would never see Liz again but when this news broke out, Luger’s wife came to know that he was still seeing Liz. Luger’s wife filed for a divorce after that incident. You can watch the full interview below:

The Total Package will be remembered for a lot of things in the wrestling world: His failed push as a main event star in the early 90s for the WWF, his triumph over Yokozuna at SummerSlam that included a confetti celebration even though it was a victory by COUNTOUT, his much better tenure in WCW where he was a tag-team, television, United States, and even heavyweight champion, and of course, his infamous scream selling.

However, one of the darker facts that will remembered about Luger is his relationship with Miss Elizabeth. After Macho Man and Elizabeth split, she and Luger became a real life couple, and were known to indulge in a number of vices.

In 2003, Elizabeth died of an overdose caused by a mixture of drugs and alcohol inside the home that she shared with Lex. While foul play was suspected, the death was ruled accidental, and no one was ever convicted of a murder. Luger was however, arrested and charge for a felony possession of drugs. A tragedy to the highest degree.

Lex Luger Then and Now

Luger recently appeared as a guest on Prime Time with Sean Mooney, where he addresses that very dark time in his life, and even admits he was contemplating suicide.


I was sitting out in my front yard and they told me that she didn’t make it. So I remember, when they went through my place, they found all the drugs and alcohol. That was part of my lifestyle back then. They arrested me on drug possession. I remember sitting in a jail cell that night realizing, wow…this is a really dark time. And I’ve shared this a couple of times, I thought about, the only time in my life I thought about that. People talk about what was the low point, because I remember thinking about they take your shoelaces, they take everything from me when you get checked in the jail. I was there on drug possession, on drugs they found. Because there was a lot of big quantities that was a big party house there and uh, they took me in and I was in the jail cell and put me by myself because they didn’t want to put me in general population, because people knew who I was, inmates get all stirred up. So I’m in the jail cell and I actually thought, wow, there’s no camera in here, maybe…I was trying to think of a way to end it. I thought about climbing up, there’s a dividing wall in this little cell I was in by myself that set the toilet off. I thought about maybe if I could climb up on top of that divider wall and put my hands behind my head and fall head first on the cement floor, I could end it all. I didn’t do that, but I sure thought about it.
