There, Lex faced the truth: he was losing the fight for his life. And still awaiting him was his most brutal opponent yet, when the wrestling champ found himself helplessly paralyzed from the neck down. In Wrestling with the Devil, Lex 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 to fight the only battle that really matters.

The Total Package
Wrestling With the Devil by Lex Luger is a fascinating insight into a famous wrestler, the profession itself and the price of fame and a lot of money. It is quite a complete autobiography detailing early life including his amazing atheltic ability and football career before transitioning into his quite successful wrestling career. As Lex Luger (aka The Total Package) he had a successful career inside the ring but outside of the ring his life was starting to fall apart with addictions and an affair causing problems. It also deals with his criminal problems, jail time and eventual conversion to Christ as well as his recent battle with spinal injuries, no doubt influcenced by his wrestling and football careers.

As someone who never really followed wrestling as a child I wasn't sure what I would think about this book but I enjoy autobiographies especially when they are about interesting careers like wrestling. I found the book very compelling and I couldn't wait to hear the next chapter of Lex's amazing life. There are plenty of highs and lows with a few twists thrown in that make it a thrilling journey.

The narration is very good, it sounded like Lex was reading the book as the narrator did it so well. The book flowed nicely and it was very easy listening.

This book is a must read for all wrestling fans and highly recommended for anyone who loves a good autobiography. It is very entertaining and it will you leave you with a lasting impression.

Wresting With The Devil is a great listen
I listened to the audio book Wresting with the Devil by Lex Luger. I was really impressed with the narration and totally engrossed in the story. Lex was so transparent in telling his life story and how far he fell and how much he lost. But, although he lost a lot of earthly stuff, he gained Heaven and eternity. i am really glad to hear he is now laying up treasures in Heaven. I highly recommend this book.
