I had a few managers know where Albany, Georgia and Albany Georgia okay are you going to come here is just below before you get to Tallahassee, Florida yeah yup.
I wrestle and Albany certainly have some memorable matches in Tampa Bay yeah yeah I remember you got became to Albany. At open house, so why not be terminology and we thought you were going to win a note for the ripstop counter like a really bad so you see you at you at the actual show and Albany that's amazing. And yeah, did I lose at night. Triston remember we want to how he got how popular one, but he probably cheated yet afflicted, I just say he probably cheated day.yeah, for some reason. For some reason Triston I'm you know I did I didn't catch on quick enough.
You know that more than once to sell. Why is Rick clear for you that that is that's right.
That was the nature boy for you. What will Triston tell me soon so you got to experience that live firsthand it. Any other just real quick. Any other favorite matches.
It doesn't have to be would Nikita call off involved in any other favorite matches their growing numbers of fan and I remember, wrestle me not express keeping their television came with it for like Mao was there but I think I remember watching my last message I went to would watch steam wrestle great Great American Bash a while on the and the funny thing is, I guess. Why you got me so much to write in with that was the only organization never went to wrestling goals.
I never went to like WW your TMA or anything like that. It gets a slight unity in WH was really close to my heart.
You got king there was like high-profile or whatever. But that's all we can equip me so close he got well yeah coming to the smaller market. Smaller towns like that to be more personable and so so your your you and I have something in common. Triston, you know what that is yet any guess what that is what we have in common south side of the wrestling 0F side of the here's what we have in common. You you and I are both NWA for life man through thermal got here that right is yeah I like a lot.I thought that quite what little but I did watch afterward. I don't recall to you anywhere else and I definitely feel good because it like it was home base for me right yeah no that's good.
Got something to do when I do have anywhere to go.
In time, so now all that that that is that is awesome and I did do some he sometimes people ask the question about the AWA with Vern Gagne but we we did mainly things in conjunction with them in and then I did you know by went with with the NWA's blessing. I did some TB tapings wrestle their capillaries of the school.
You know the living legend a few times, but all that said, WCW NWA for life through and through so I appreciate you being such a loyal NWA so that home that well with my heart be home for me because you got depressed when it came to me that it was a slight knock.
I never get disappointed when I went the guys so well that's good to hear you is part of our goal was to always hopefully the fan walked away feeling like they got their money's worth. So that's Nassau CSI. I did look it earned a little note getting a good fit in the bank I want to what was going on at the time when I didn't know much. It was never disappointed. Well that's that's great to hear what you have some questions for me. Triston and let so let's address a couple couple.
The question is questionable. Go with questionable one for me to get you member the questions you submitted to me. I think I believe the question would believe you really gotten in trouble, I leave time here.
I believe that was one of my first questions I made it to you.
Yeah I know you were guess you are right referencing Canada. You know how you can. I think Lee Fraser how do you continue to to love God and travel time generated yet and we you know how. I guess from from going all the way back to the first couple and the fallen world and you have the broken world in which we live. That you know troubles is just a part of life. Right. In fact, Jesus himself said in this life, you're going to have trouble just kind depending on what translation you you reading and so for for me. I just speak for myself and everything is a great question and I'll speak for myself. One thing that helps me continue not only to love God, but it helps me to to really I say this wafers that the fall in love even more with God day by day is is in trouble times and I've had some like all of us. I've had challenging times in my life I've had trouble times in my life I see that's what I give my life to Jesus. 17. October 1993. It hasn't been smooth sailing.
I mean there's been high and lows and ups and downs of twists and turns and there's been trouble and right and in a person can go really honestly a person can go one of two ways. When they face you know some challenges in their life they can.
Some turn away from God or some turn in and run closer to God and run into his arms and that's what I personally have chosen to do so whether it's through a pandemic or or or the threat of war or or or anything else any other kind of relational trouble health issues right facing health challenges maybe are given a prognosis not a favorable prognosis from a doctor that all of that gives us the opportunity to draw closer to God and if if I focus on that day to day by focus on my relationship with him today.
Today, the no matter what trouble I face.
I'm able to get through it because she says she's a look's like I'm going to stick closer than a brother to you if if you stick close to me he goes I'm not to leave you nor forsake you know. These are some of things he says in his word right and so I guess my encouragement would be whether you or anybody else out there that will listen to this show is if you're even right now facing trouble times don't run from God draw closer to God and he's the only one who can who can calm the waters right. He's the only one that can calm the storm okay. Is that helpful. Oh yeah yeah good. What else you have it it it it helps figure another minute. Got to go to know you hear pastors and so wanted to hear another male. I don't think you know that given what you don't have problems with the computer so but to hear another minute. Got speak coping at the more you to the fire going over whopper. I appreciate that you did. You remember when you're the questions. If you think I remember one of my other questions was finding those small little point to like to laugh. I think I remember that being one of my other questions for you yeah yeah you are in and again yeah there's a difference between happiness and and and and Joe being filled with joy right. Happiness is really kind of an emotion that ebbs and flows right you were just reality is what is not going to be happy each and every single day, especially, we find yourself in trouble times right. However however my experience is if I have the joy of the Lord in me which I do so by have the joy of the Lord in me.
I want to do my best again. It just kind of ties in your first question that as I continue to draw closer to the Lord of my relationship with him. My intimacy with him my love for him that joy that I first found in surrendering my life to him. I'm like, allow the enemy or or or any set of circumstances. Rob me of my joy. So no matter how troubled the times are I can I can in the sense laugh in the face of adversity because of the joy that's with in me and not to focus on on on the emotion of happiness but to center my focus on the in the internal status.
The internal and the eternal joy that I'm promised and so I would encourage that you and all others out there that that you no matter how do we lack.
You know, how do we maintain our humor. How do we laugh in the face of adversity or anything else about the that that that would be my answer to that. Yeah that that you know you get it on freight no Count your many blessings in goes one way that I can myself. What I do when I'm under adversity, or even when things are just fine and come up with nothing but what got you here for me how he help me overcome this door, you know, just to watch his hand come through.
In fact, I can let them know thinking a smile for note opportunity that you 30 don't go, I'm even more grateful for their help because I can go back and reflect on what think you for those things that you done for me.
You know, if you believe got into my life so that's the way I keep my joy, my laughter going in with my wife and thinks it is finally feeling thing a trip to no amount laugh and go good well and it sounds like you you got wonderful bride there next to you and in sounds like you got a pastor who is very schooled and grounded in in his faith and walked that that is discipling and and mentoring you is is while you and so while I just want I want to thank you for for being willing to come on Q&A with Cole off today and night.
