At the 1991 Royal Rumble, Luke set a rather unfortunate record as he lasted a total of 4 seconds.

He uses his super powers to fly through the skylight of the bank with a bomb that Nash had attached to the vault and two bank employees, which leads to a spectacular mid-air explosion. Everyone assumes that Ernest has been killed, until he falls through the skylight and lands on Nash. Ernest declares, "I came, I saw, I got blowed up." Ernest then pulls out a shank, winks at the camera and says, "I'm going back in to avenge my Daddy!"
