Christ - this song is driving me up the wall... I consulted my "song dictionary" music programmer chick, and she didn't have a clue. So now we're in REAL trouble.
Thank god for Wieners.
What was the song played for Lex Luger at the end?
You always were, always beside me. Holding my hand every step of the way. Through these eyes you could do no wrong. In these eyes you were forever strong. My heart will (something) live on. You were my hero. Hero oh oh. You were my hero. Whoa-oh-oh.
And then we get down to the chorus which is "You'll be my hero." about a million times over.
The song blows - but it's stuck in my head and I'd love any kind of sign because now music programmer chick is annoyed too.
(whispers sensually: "I can be your heeeeroh...I am Antonio Banderas and I am soooo...SEXeee.")
Nevermind. Wish I could help you.
"YOU WANT A PIECE OF ME?" - The chilling words of the Shockmaster!
"Here comes Charles Benoit, and he's really mad.....Charles Benoit is here, and he's FUCKING CRAZY"- T.R. on the barbecued cat thread (it's too terrible to link)
THE AWESOME UNDERTAKER drives out - damn, how did those STEEL steps rise up onto their ends and out of the way of - hey wait, I see DUDES there! They must be soulless minions of Big Evil's Red Devil Underwood Deviled Ham Team Evil. What? - CRZ, back to his old antics
From E.C. Ostermeyer's WWF.com "Byte This!" recap for Friday 9 August 2001:
Time for "Outthink the Fink." Fink's been getting complaints that his questions have been too easy, so he's cooked up a doozy this week.
The Event: SummerSlam 1993 The Place: Palace of Auburn Hills, Michigan. The Principals: Yokozuna vs. Lex Luger. The Situation: Leading up to this bout, a bus caravan was sent cross- country on a promotional tour to hype both the match and Lex Luger. The caravan was known as the "Lex Express. " (Not, "The Aimless Cannonball?") A song was written about Lex Luger, and a music video was shot to go with it. (Look, I can hear you all laughing out there, cut it out, can't ya?) Fink wants to know what the name of the song was?
Kelly thinks it couldn't have been "Road to Nowhere," by the Talking Heads, which cracks up Fink.
The answer to this week's "Outthink the Fink": The song's title was "I'll be Your Hero."
(Dead silence. You can hear muffled snickering from the stage crew, at Lex Luger's expense.)
Kelly says that, well, it isn't quite as catchy as "Let the Bodies Hit The Floor!", but hey, it was the 90's, it was a different time.
Sorry, cfgb, but that's pretty much all I could find on the subject. Since the song seems to have been specifically written for Lex Luger, it's possible that it may never have gotten an official release. However, it apprears it did get at least one other airing, that being during the Mankind "This Is Your Life" segment for The Rock. From CRZ's recap of the 9/27/99 RAW is WAR:
The second guest is COACH EVERETT HART from the Freedom High School Warriors, coming out to Lex Luger's "I'll Be Your Hero."

I have every PWI year end issue for 1987 on. I used to think they were the be all and end all of info and year end accolaids. Yikes. When I got my first Year End Wrestling Observer it was a real shock. Now people hardly ever mention PWI.
