So I'm sitting at home flipping channels last night (Nov. 20, 2012) when I stop on Hardcore Pawn, a TruTV show about a family in Detroit, Michigan, who runs a pawn shop, American Jewelry and Loan.
Basically, once Pawn Stars blew up on History, TruTV wanted in on the action and Hardcore Pawn is consistently one of the channel's highest rated programs.
What does all this have to do with pro wrestling?
Well, while I'm watching the show, Lex Luger of all people comes walking through the door, limping badly and using a cane to get around. He looks awful, to be blunt, but after everything he's gone through, he's in remarkably good spirits.
He was in to pawn some of his old wrestling gear for a non-profit organization, Believe Wrestling Outreach. Les and Seth Gold, the pawn brokers on the show, initially offered him $2,500 but old Lex, always the worker, managed to get the price up to $3,500.
All for charity of course.
