This is the Truth Network. Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is set for one flaw. Introducing first, from Lithuania, he weighs 123 kilos, the Russian nightmare, Nikita Kolov. Welcome to another episode Q&A with Kolov, the devil's nightmare. Today, today, today, however, we got the man of the hour. We got the big man, Double J, Jason Justice with us today on Q&A. Jason, welcome to the Q&A show. What's up, man? Thanks for having me.

It's great to have you. And, hey, let's do this. Let's just jump into this for our listeners who may not know who Double J, Jason Justice is. Enlighten our listeners to where you live. Give just a quick backdrop on who you are.

Double J, Jason Justice from Easily, South Carolina. I used to be a professional wrestler at one time. Oh, no. Yeah. You would have made a good tag team partner, by the way, just so you know. I think it's the tongue.

I like sticking my tongue out, so yeah, it works out pretty good. And the barber. And the barber. Yes. Yeah. All right. Keep going. You used to be in the, appear in the professional wrestling ranks. Okay.

Yes, sir. Then I ended up having children and I got kind of strayed away from the business. You know, I went down a pretty dark hole in my life, became a drug addict for a long time. And I found Jesus or he found Jesus found me.

He was never lost. But I ended up coming to your main camp and the main camp changed my life. And I swag. I come back every opportunity to come back down there and serve every chance I get. So it's just, it's been awesome, man. I love it.

Yeah. You come back and serve us on staff and we'll talk about that. I mean, let's go to the wrestling career real quick. So how many, how many years did you spend in the squared circle?

I started in 1997 and I was trained by Brody Ray Chase and Nikki Freya. Do you know Brody? I do. I may have, he may have even felt the wrath of the Russian sickle once or twice. I'm sure he has. Just saying.

It's a good, it's a good chat. Yeah. I think he was what they now call enhancement talent. I think. Fancy words. Or jobber.

Or jobber. Back in the day. Yeah.

All right. So, so 97, so you broke in in 97 and, and then how, how many years in the career? I finished up in about 2008 and I went down to Georgia at NWA Wildside.

According to Georgia, Bill Behrens, Rick Michaels, and that crew had a few opportunities to, you know, do some enhancement stuff with WWE and WCW. You know, to me, that was, that was living the dream for me. I never, I never desired to be a superstar. I just want to be able to get in there and hang out with the people that I looked up to. And I guess, so you want, like you watch wrestling at a young age and thought, man, one day I want to do that.

Yeah, most definitely. I was so, so bad into wrestling that my parents used to say that I worshiped it. So they would, they would not let me watch it on TV on Saturdays. That was my punishment. Okay. That was your discipline.

I, if you weren't a good boy, we take the wrestling away. Without a doubt. Yeah. I mean, it was way overboard.

I mean, I had magazines and figures that watched every TV show, ever pay, ever pay per view, whatever came on. See, we love you. We love you kind of guys though. That's the greatest fans on the planet.

That's who you guys are the greatest fans on the planet. And when I say you're a big man, like I'm not exaggerating that you are how tall? I'm six, about six to about 340. Okay.

Six to about 340 pounds. And, and solid. Like you, you, you know, you're, you're, you know, you're solid.

I love, I'm just leaving it at that. I'm a Mac truck. I'm a Mac truck. You are, you are.

I'm like a little, what were they called? Zuzu pickup or something compared to you. That's, I'm definitely, I'm definitely the big rig. Yeah.

That's awesome. So, and let's just touch on this for a minute. Cause I mean, you just shared just briefly, quickly, a pretty powerful story. You, the way you phrased, you went down a pretty dark, dark hole for a number of years. And I like what you said. Jesus was never lost.

He, he found me. Right. And, and so you, you surrendered your life to Jesus and, and which was transforming of itself. And then you were introduced to, to mankind camp, which people are getting to know more and more about, you know, Lex Luger. Um, I like how Lex says it. When you said that, it reminded me of like when Lex said, Jesus saved me from myself. Right? This is Nikita Koloff and I want to thank Clemens Karp for supporting my new show, Man Up, Saturday afternoon at 1230 on the Truth Network.

Hi, Nikita Koloff. Be sure to check out the Man Up show now available on television, broadcast, and podcast. Go to MorningStarTV.com or the Truth Radio Network. Check out your local listings or better yet, download the Truth Network app today.

You're listening to the Truth Network and truthnetwork.com. And, uh, and, uh, and so you came to camp, you were impacted at Man Camp. And of course, now you do, you come back and serve on staff and volunteer your time, which is amazing that you would do that. What would you say to somebody listening out there, men or women, like, you know, obviously you might say something that a wife or a girlfriend or something out there goes, Hey, you have my blessing.

Go to that camp that Lex Luger and Nikita Koloff facilitate. What would be like, maybe the first thing that comes to mind in terms of how it impacted you and helped to, helped you along in your journey with Jesus? Something pop in your head?

Well, it impacted me because I had my first, what I call a real supernatural encounter with Jesus on this trip. At camp you're talking about? Okay. Yes, sir.

Okay. And it was just the reason it was so impactful because even though I had, you know, I guess run-ins with Jesus, it was never that supernatural thing where you know, 110% absolutely true. That's not my brain. That's the Lord. And that was the game changer for me was he revealed himself to me to show me he was real, to show me it's not my brain trying to make up stories. And, you know, the book, the Bible that everybody's been reading for so many years is true. And I'm going to show, I'm going to put it out before you in front of you. And man, it just, I can't express enough to any men out there if, man, if you're struggling in anything right now, if you're just walking through and you don't see no hope, if you're a bowling game Christian and you just want to dive deeper, I mean, come go to man camp, hook up with Lex and Nikita, get to man camp. It's guaranteed to change your life.

I've said it so many times. It can't be explained only experienced. And for the wives of any of these men, if you, if you want to, if you got a husband that you feel like slipping, send him on, he'll come back a different person. And man, you're married. I've seen marriages restored.

I've seen good marriages, even better, you know, justified to be better marriages. And I just, I can't say enough good things about it. Not because I'm on the phone with him. I say it behind his back. I promote his man camp everywhere just because of the experience that I've had, you know, and even going back on staff, it's like double the blessing every single time. And every time I've went back, I've never left disappointed. Not one.

No freedom that comes from these places. Double J double the blessing. So that's why you get double blessing.

Cause you're double J, you know, just so you know, and wow, that's a power powerful testimony you just shared there. And you know, for the men and women listening out there, you want to learn more, go to coloft.net and click the link to, to the man camp. We do one of the, one of the spring, one of the fall Lex Luger and I co-facilitate.

We have a great, as you're hearing great staff that, that assembles and comes down to serve. And we would love, and we have scholarships if finances is an issue for you. Please let us know. We don't want money to be a reason why you can't as, as Jason just said, dive deeper or get set free from something you're struggling with. And so you let us know we're, we're going to do everything we can on our end, that if you have a genuine desire to really just want to run after the heart of God to, to come to man camp, our next one will be October 16th to the 21st.

But do go click the link, go click the website and, and learn more about it. And so appreciate that double J and, and, and so, so, all right. So, uh, and you got, you got how many children and new grandchild too, right? Just, yeah, I've got two daughters, one's 19, the other one's 21. My oldest just, my oldest just had a, uh, just had my first grand baby.

Congratulations. And my grand baby is six months old. I've got a nine year old son.

So it's three kids, one grand baby. And by the way, your, your, your son, yeah, by the way, your son doesn't look anything like you at all. Gosh, it's like spit out of the same mold. I mean, I'm mini me.

He's like a mini me, like my goodness, he looks like identical to you. So that's, that's, that's amazing. So well, uh, well, but the good part is you are grounded. And in fact, not only are you, I want to say this before we, uh, get ready to transition here to your questions for me, not only are you grounded and now have a foundation where you can be a different dad to your children, including your son, uh, and, and model something different from the dark days, but you also go out from time to time now, uh, speaking. In fact, I know you and a couple other wrestlers, Casey cage and Chad Lael, AKA, uh, Gunner, AKA Jackson Riker just had an amazing youth camp.

Uh, we'll have to bring you back on and bring you guys on and talk about the results of that youth camp that you guys had. So you go out and share and share your story now, which is just amazing. So, but you're out in the marketplace too, right? You're a marketplace guy predominantly. Yeah. Right. Yeah. Yeah. Yes, sir. I work for a company called Henry shine. We do medical equipment.

It's a logistics warehouse for it. And, uh, I love it. Awesome. Awesome.

Easily South Carolina, double J big Jason justice. Okay. Well, let's flip the table here. Let's give you the opportunity to ask me a couple, three questions. And, uh, if you're ready, fire away with your first question. One of my first questions would be, what do you think is the most important characteristic of a Christian role model?

Hmm. Well, the first word that comes to mind is the word humility, humility, um, walking, walking humbly before God, walking humbly before others, you know, what was the, what's probably the number one struggle for many people, especially men, I think, but many, many people. And that's that big P word, right? Pride. Of course, scripture says, you know, pride goes before destruction and haughtiness before the fall, you know, I mean, so that's one of the biggest struggles in life, right?

Is, is, is walking humbly before others and humbly before God. And so I think that that's a pretty good characteristic to embrace and, and then model for others. That's pretty good.

I like that myself. All right. So here, this one's going to be a little, maybe a little different for you.

Okay. If you, if you could use Jesus as a, as a one day cheat sheet, I know what we've got the Bible, but I mean, sit face to face with Jesus and, and, and you ask him, what is the one thing that you could do better at? What do you think he would tell you? Ooh, man, he might have a list for me, double J. I mean, to sit, it's interesting, right?

To sit, as you might say, toe to toe, nose to nose, face to face with, with the man himself. Ooh, wow. That's a, that's a, that's a good question.

It really is a good question. What do I, and you said, what do I think he would say to me? What, what area of my life you're saying?

Do I think he would? If he said Nikita, I think you're doing great work. You're doing wonderful stuff, but I think you could improve it with this one area.

I guess I'm going to say, and cause I, cause I've been working on this and really challenging people. I think it's first Peter four, seven that talks about, um, being serious about your prayer life. Right. And so I'm really trying to be intentional and focus on more, uh, prayer time with him, you know, more than just, you know, praying over my meal.

Right. Uh, or, or having five minutes in the morning, you know, before, before I start my day. And so I'm really centering in my gaze and perhaps you might say, Hey, you know, you're making improvements.

Let's, let's keep, let's stay on that path and continue, you know, building that communication with me. Cause that's what prayer is. I don't know if people realize, but you know, what prayer is, is if they have a personal relationship with Jesus, prayer is just, you can be, it's an open-ended, I call it an open-ended dialogue, not a, not a monologue.

Many, many people, I think, but approach, approach the throne room with a monologue. They're like, I need Jesus. I need, I need, I need, I need, and there's nothing wrong with needing, you know, we're, we're supposed to be needy. We're supposed to be needy out loud, in fact.

And, uh, but, but, you know, the blind beggar would be a good example of that. Um, all that said, um, you know, besides our needs, I'm learning to, to, to intercede more for others. So it's not just about what I need or what I want. It's, it's, I'm becoming more focused on, on other people's needs and, or just interceding for them. Um, I just literally saw a text this morning, um, and, uh, uh, a group text and the guy said, I'm homeless, uh, pray for me right now.

Cause, uh, I, I, I'm going to, I forget even how he worded it, but it basically kind of put a suicidal kind of comment out there. Right. And, uh, and so, you know, what I, what I, what I immediately did then was just pause from what I was doing and starting interceding and, and and praying for him. Right. Uh, and so it's kind of a long answer to, to your question, but, but I think maybe that's the area that, that he might say, Hey, you're making improvements, all these other areas, let's continue on that path, continue pressing and getting more and more and more serious, uh, about your prayer life.

And cause one thing's for sure. Prayer works. Prayer works. You said a long, you said a long answer, but I mean, I gotta be honest.

I mean, you're convicted to me right then when you said it. So, um, I, I believe we could all stand to be a little more selfless in our prayer life, you know, and be still and listen. Yeah. Well again, it's a dialogue. That's what I mean by it's a dialogue, you know, you know, I pray and just for people to understand if you're, if you're, if you go to a Psalm and you read a Psalm out loud, that that's a form of prayer. Like you're like, ah, I don't know what to pray.

I can't, you know, I think, uh, uh, one of my mentors, a guy by the name of Mike Bickle, who had, he was like 20 years old or something. He made a commitment to pray to Lord for like an hour a day. And so he goes into his prayer closet and he prays up all these prayers and he looks and he's been in there like 90 seconds. He's like, Oh no, what do I, what do I do now for the next 57 minutes and a half minutes, you know, or whatever that math is, 58 and a half, whatever. Anyway, his point was, he's like, the Lord had to really teach him, you know, Hey, what's this communication look like with me?

You know, so it's different forms. It can be offering up our prayers. It could be reading, reading the Psalms and just meditating and speaking that out loud and, and, and praying that back to him. There's a lot of different types of prayer and it doesn't have to be an hour. You know, I mean, it can be, but more than anything, it's just, it's just being conscious of your relationship with, with, with the Lord. And, and I, it can be a 20 second prayer driving down the road in your car. I mean, and, and, and make a point of communicating all day long. So there you go.

Thank you. If there was a time machine where you could go back in time, get the, in his prime Russian nightmare in the key to call, bring him to the present day, who would be somebody you'd be interested in getting in the ring with?

Oh man. Well, it, well, I have to, I have to say this as far as present day. That's a little tougher to ask only because I don't watch a lot of the current product, the what's currently put on TV. So I'm honestly, I'm not all, all too familiar with like, who's even in the ring at this point. But when I've been interviewed on other podcasts and they say, you know, if you could have wrestled anybody or whatever, it's like, they kind of opened it up a little bit more, right.

You know, who would it have been? There's a handful of guys I would have, I would have, I think really enjoyed being in the ring with and, and I feel like could have had, I think some decent matches. And so some of the guys that come to mind, Hulk Hogan, you know, which was, you know, the magazines pushed that, pushed it, pushed it. It never happened, nor did I really ever consider it, but, but the fans and the magazines pushed it.

Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels, The Rock, you know, Triple H, I think we would add some, some good matches. And yeah, so that, I mean, that's I said, that's a, that's a handful of the names so that, that would have been macho man, macho man Randy. Oh yeah.

Jumping to a slim gym brother, dig it. Yeah. Right. There's my macho imitation.

Cause some of the guys say, let me say this too real quick. Some of the guys may not know, but you know, I had numerous matches against Steve Austin before he shaved his head, you know, and took on my likeness, you know, back when he had blonde hair, kidding him, kidding out there. Well, kind of, but, you know, when he was stunning Steve, right. With the blonde hair, you know, mean Mark Callas before he was the Undertaker. Cactus Jack, Diamond Dallas Page. So, and sometimes Jason, I forget I was in the ring with some of these guys until the amazing fans out there post posted on my social media. And I'm like, Oh my gosh, I was in the ring with, you know, Diamond Dallas. I was in the ring with flying Brian Pillman, you know, on and on it goes.

So if you ask me, I could probably just about tell you because that was my childhood, bro. Okay. Hey, so I know it's, I know you get to ask the questions, but so I'm going to ask, who would you have liked to have seen me against? That's a good one. You know, if, if I have to say, I'm going to say present day, I think just because of the work pace, I think you and Brock Lesnar could have had a good, tough beat down.

I forgot about Brock. Yeah. Yeah.

Another Minnesota boy, by the way, Minnesota. Yeah. I believe with, with his intensity and the Russian nightmares, intensity, and, you know, just the ability to tell stories. I think it would have been great. Yeah. I get a feel. I don't know that either of us would have survived that those matches as physical as he is as physical as I was.

We may have beat each other to death. I don't know, but yeah, no, that's a good one. That's a good, that's a good one. Brock Lesnar. Yep.

And of course, you know, Hey, Goldberg might've been a good standoff too, right? If he could learn how to bump, forgive me. We'll edit that out. We'll edit that out. All right. Hey, we got time for one more crave. You've got one more. We have time for one more question.

Moving on. Do you remember the exact time in your life when you, when, when everything was going downhill and you just had no other choice, I've got to meet this Jesus guy. So my, you know, my story is a lot of people know my story. Some don't, but you know, my story is a little bit different than, you know, like your testimony is, you know, you went down this super dark hole and, and, and the Lord rescued you out of the darkness and transformed you into the marvelous light light.

Right. And so for me, it wasn't that I felt things were slipping away as much as I was like, all right, I'm, I'm successful. You know, I climbed the wrestling mountain peak of the, you know, world champion, a number of times, all kinds of different belts and accolades, inspirational rest of the year, Jim Crockett cup tag team tournament with dusty and, you know, million dollar check and the whole thing, you know, a wink wink. But so, so all, all that said though, so here's the deal, all that said, I was just on a path of, gosh, something's still missing. I mean, this, this satisfied for a moment, but at the end of the day that the cheers stop, you know, the thrills are gone, you know, you get up the next day and go, okay, what am I going to satisfy myself with today?

And I just came to the realization on 17 October, 1993, having been invited to a church service by this Christian couple that I met in business. My aha moment was realizing what's missing is a personal relationship with Jesus, that there's nothing out there that will give us a, if you want to say, a permanent satisfaction. There's a lot of temporary things. We can be satisfied by many, many temporary things, whether it's drugs, alcohol, sex, I mean, you just go, you name it, just go, what, whatever, whatever the world has to offer. But at the end of the day, it still leaves you empty inside, if you're truthful, if you're honest. And the only thing that fills that void and will satisfy is surrendering your life, surrendering your heart to Jesus. And I made that decision 17 October, 1993, and life's just never been the same. Jason, that's not to say, it hadn't been, you know, smooth sailing across a glass lake.

I mean, it's been, you know, rough waters at times, but I'm grateful and thankful that he's right there with me, as I know you are watching us every, he's with us every step of the way. So, well, man, you have, yeah, you have asked some great questions, Double J, Jason Justice, and now do you have a website or anything for work? Like if people want to go see some of you, like any of your old matches, or is there anywhere they could go search that? You can go on YouTube and look up N.W.A. Wildside.

Okay. And there's an archives, N.W.A. Wildside. Okay, N.W.A.

Wildside, look for Jason Justice. Scotty Wren, S-D-O-T-T-I-E-W-R-E-N-N. Okay, and they'll get to see the big man himself in action. Yes, sir, see me at work.

They'll see my thing and the cuticle of impersonation. Love it. All right, my brother, well, listen, thanks for joining me on the Q&A today, and appreciate you. Love you, my friend, and look forward to camp in October. God bless you, brother. God bless you.
