Part II: Lex Luger unafraid to delve into darkest parts of a calamitous life

In the second part of my interview with Larry Pfohl, the real man behind pro wrestler Lex Luger, explores some of the darker parts of his life.

In advance of Sunday's WrestleMania 33, Pfohl talks about the 2003 overdose death of Elizabeth Hulette at his Georgia townhouse and how he cowered in shame from the pro-wrestling community because Miss Elizabeth was so beloved, his 2006 conversion to Christianity and a 2007 spinal stroke that has put him in a wheelchair.

Pfohl, 58, sounds transparent in retelling these poignant events, which he wrote about in the 2013 autobiography "Wrestling with the Devil: The True Story of a World Champion Professional Wrestler -- His Reign, Ruin, and Redemption."

You can listen to the first segment that pertains more to his wrestling journey and triumph here.
