United States Championship - Lex Luger

December 16, 1990 - July 14, 1991

Still upset about losing the United States Championship six weeks earlier, Lex Luger had his shot at redemption when he battled the man who beat him, Stan Hansen, at Starrcade in a Bullrope Match. Luger took full advantage of his opportunity, defeating Hansen in just over 10 minutes. The victory marked Luger's fourth reign as U.S. Champion. Luger eventually vacated the title after defeating Barry Windham for the WCW Championship on July 14, 1991.
