United States Championship - Lex Luger

July 11, 1987 - November 26, 1987

Early in Lex Luger's career, many wrestling insiders predicted a huge career for the big man. And who could blame them? Luger made a huge name for himself early on, ending Nikita Koloff's 11-month reign as United States Champion in July 1987. Luger held the championship for more than four months before losing it to the legendary Dusty Rhodes.
