Nation podcast interview show, he noted that Lex Luger never got to the same plane as Sting because he was pushed way too early by the promoters. He maintained that Luger never needed that early push considering the fact that the stable at the time was designed for top level performers and Luger needed rather more time to develop and master a few more skills that would have helped him climb the rope with more firmness and grit.
