On July 4, 1993, aboard the USS Intrepid, Yokozuna was making a mockery out of America by issuing a challenge to any American strong enough to bodyslam the 500-pound behemoth. The American efforts were futile, until Lex Luger made a dramatic entrance from a helicopter to the Intrepid, and proceeded to bodyslam Yokozuna! The events aboard the Intrepid earned Luger a shot for Yokozuna's WWE Championship at SummerSlam 1993. Touring the country via the `Lex Express,' Luger generated the support of an entire country, but he also knew the odds were against him. Not only did Luger have to pin the champion or make him submit, Yokozuna's manager, Jim Cornette, added a clause in the contract that this would be the one and only shot Luger would ever receive at Yokozuna's championship. Luger defeated Yokozuna - and celebrated with the rest of America - but the win was by countout. Therefore, Yokozuna was still WWE Champion. Only thanks an unusual set of circumstances heading into WrestleMania X did Luger receive a second shot at Yokozuna and the WWE Championship.
