On this date in WCW history: Lex Luger replaces Vader as the last 'Hulkamaniac'

You know the story by now, everything revolved around Hulk Hogan.

Such was the case on this date in history (Sept. 11, 1995), when the Hulkster kicked the crap out of Lex Luger on Monday Nitro only to later have him join his team of "Hulkamaniacs."

Luger was a late replacement for Vader, who was shit-canned following his locker room brawl against Paul Orndorff, and joined fellow "Hulkamaniacs" Sting and "Macho Man" Randy Savage for a four-on-four feud with the "Dungeon of Doom."

The two factions would later meet in a "WarGames" match at Fall Brawl, with the Hulkamaniacs emerging victorious.

Shocking, I know.
