It wasn't you would like to buy smelling time did you grow up a dream. It dreaming of being a wrestler might not sure did not. You know you always my deal right at right weightlifting bodybuilding and football. That was where my passion laid by then door of opportunity opened up of a wrestling yell at him.

Crockett promotions Jim Crockett, Junior you in a five-minute phone call with him and next thing you know I'm in Charlotte North Carolina and stepping into a ring debuting in Raleigh, North Carolina at the Dorton Arena will without any wrestling experience. No amateur background. No professional training, the night I went into the ring and debuted even knew any of that last story but yeah nine cell so I get a eating grudgingly to be in politics, but the door of opportunity opened up. Here you are Lieut. Gov. of North Carolina and it still Greensboro all man that you know certainly not a rich history there with with wrestling that know you granddaddy of them all.*KI. There it and you mentioned me to you I and out of the city are one of 10 children right here yet. So one of 10 children. Yes you and congratulations on 33 years of marriage.

But like and thank you for serving our great nation as well. I always appreciate those you who spent time in the service all the different branches. My dad was in the 82nd airborne All-American mass the 82nd airborne and annotate a stray real quick before he passed away. He lived to be 92 while mine and I went up on his last Father's Day and I saw final online somewhere something like it out. Questions to ask your dad on Father's Day or somehow my not having to do that. I had the Journal of 10 questions all lined out and began to ask these questions and and yeah I was right and down. He was answering them. I had no clue he never opened up about this, but he told me how he liberated a concentration camp in Miami while yeah I was like the enemy Mark vivid details like he was there.

While I me from the name of that the camp to the wound to the and bile it and I told my sister later who I was staying with. Why was there and in Minnesota she's in college get him to talk about that guy just has to know what anyway so I just appreciate those who serve serve military and have given us the freedom we have today – like I wanted things always think about the Nazi man off of my generation.

I think about this served and will work to another was I think about the scars. The internal sponsor they care and memories they care, they did that for us. They did any really beautiful world we a little boastful to explain them out greatly. We do we owe them any days, many of them lay down their life for freedom and and growing up in Greensboro Mayor in and a big family like you did raising to two children of your own not to grandchildren him a add and I know we've talked before he actually shared a story on the on the man up show you her course you are guest on the map show as well. About one year very personal encounters at a wrestling match there at the Kia CM I'm sure you have lots of start.

You have a favorite match or two from those days like it doesn't have to be yours truly, but do you have a favorite match or two from your wrestling days grown up listening to the end the cuticle fear if you're needing to buy a car and have marginal credit and considering using buy here pay here that's worse than taking the Russian sickle Winston-Salem motorcars will put you behind the wheel of a car you can rely on while helping rebuild, repair or establish your credit score conveniently located on Silas Creek Pkwy. in Winston-Salem. Be sure to check them out because you are number one you're listening to the end you know honestly grow not when I was little. On the Coliseum. The matches that matters much of the wounded okay, but I think the most memorable wrestling match that I've ever been to was all somewhat of a surprise.

I was in the Coliseum with one of my best friends were huge fans of the road and talk as Friday night and all the sudden music start and they came out and they wrestled. I think the wild Samoans.

Maybe I think that's who they wrestled and they went all over the Coliseum babes were fighting literally right in front of him as one of my most vivid vivid memories is of of that match and then of course some another big big attractions that we solve matches between yourself and I've been and the rocket relax and rest brass you don't want to mount housing during memories is the first time I saw the rock will express the Russians was all on television and I remember us jumping on the now. We were so excited those dirty run and it was great, but on those times were much different.

I guess a lot of kids now say what note that I have a faint memory for what they watch now but I was going to sit back and yeah it it well and it was a very protected business for some know the more of the story, but it was a very protected business and how that meaning is hard to crack into the business. I am in fact you mentioned the roadways. She knows that roller animals the whole reason I got into professional wrestling that I have run the I don't know. You know, that's tricky.

Be quick.

That's around that I actually recruited Joel was is is your real name Joe Lauren -itis actually recruited Joel out of iron Dale high school in new Brighton, Minnesota, play college football with me but he was a standout high school standout. I was part of the recruiting team for college and I saw him highlight a newspaper. I thought you tobacco since you pick up a phone book and find somebody's phone number and I just called his house talk to his parents invited them to tour the campus they came, I given the personal escort around campus took took them to the.

The basket really. I took Bill basketball gig didn't even dinner to go to bass walking that night.

Actually the coach there.

Believe it or not.

I remember the name flip Saunders you know I don't know that name Disasters… Honors. We Animal and I in Flip Used To Shoot Horse and Pig All Day Long in the Gym That Was That Was Flip's First Coaching Job Out Of College Was Was a Junior College in Golden Valley, Minnesota Wire and Man. He Brought the Golden Gopher-and Atmosphere to the College Because She Went on to Have a Legendary Career and Go Fishing and All That but Yeah Flip Saunders Rotor Out Of All of the Rest of That Role-Playing Horse and Pig in the Gym There. Golden Valley Now so Anyway so Joe Drops out and That's the I Know He Gets into Professional Wrestling. I Went on to Full Finish My College Career in Graduate Was Training for Pro Football Child. He Calls Me up One Day and Says Hey This Is Promoter They Are Looking for a Big Guy Would Shave His Head Become a Russian. I Told Him I Know Just the Guy and and so He Gave Each of Brock's Phone Number.

I Called Crockett I Shut the Day Practices to Be There.

The Rest Is History. Now That's Heartbroken Rest so Little Animal While That's a Great Story When You Had a Couple You Picked out a Couple Good Ones There Animal and Half That for Sure Yes Service Their Mythical Wide You Recently Took Your Son and Your Nephew Right to a WWE Event.

Maybe It Would Be the Way They Got to Meet A Lot Of Their Childhood. Okay, I'll Admit Your Well They Were Super Excited. The Look on Their Faces Worth It to Go to the Event. I Had a Great Time As Well Because I Got a Backstage Look at What It Takes to Put All Meant That Production You Have a Good Setting Equity Is Production. It Is a Production It's a Bit to Big-Time Production. I Mean, I Think Back to the Days When We Were in Armories and High Civil Gems. You May Not Know This but I Tell You This, so I Come down in 1984 I Break into the Business. There Were No Big Fat Contract. There Were No Flashings, Pyrotechnic and Flashing Lights and and It Was You in the and Your Opponent in the Ring. There Might Be 50 People in This in the Seats Right We Were.

Guys Are Making Today As Rightness Runs like I Was at Soap but Hey, so This Is the Q&A Show and and This Is Where We Flip It around and and Give You and I Love Will Scan It to Bring You Back Sometime and Talk on the Map Showing the Q&A by Let's Let's Give You the Opportunity to Ask Me Some Questions and Give Me Anything. This Is Organic.

I Have No Clue What You're Going to Ask, but Fire Away with Your First Question, Our Very First Question off the Bat with Wendy When You Get Saved in.

So It's Interesting so Everyone Knows by Now, Lisa Hope They Do. Actually I Still Be People Really Think of from Russia.

I'm Sure I like on the Internet Read My Story Go by Nikita, Tailoring and Redemption Go by My Book and Get the Whole Story Right.

Anyway, Jutting up in Russia I Did. I Grew up in Minnesota Really Grew up in Church Is Not to Say We Never Went. I like to Say We Were CEOs We Were Christmas and Easter Only. There Were CEOs but so We Did Grow up in Church I Was Raised in, and You May Not Know Some of That Some This Part of My Story, but so I Was Born in Minneapolis.

I Was Raised in What Was Officially Called the Minneapolis Housing Authority What We Effectually Call the Projects of the Ghettos of a Gambler As a Chore. My Humble Beginnings Life Began While I Was the Youngest of Four. My Dad Left When I Was Three so Raised by a Single Mom.

No Money Is Supported Financially so That We Defaulted to a Product of Welfare.

So like to Say I Was His Poor Little White Boy to Get It with No Money, No Daddy. That Was My Beginning by Tweeting up a Church Book, but My Mom Eventually Got Us out into the Suburbs, a Suburb Called Robbinsdale. Still, They Really Go to Church but That's Not to Say. Looking Back, That I Ever Doubted That There Was a God of the Universe Creator of All Things, but I Just Had No Interest in Him. And so It Really Wasn't and Tell You after I Left Wrestling so I Left on My Own Terms.

In 1992 at the Age of 33 Guys on This Path of What Life Held Next from the Key to Cool off and Recently Laura Give Me a Kind of a Word Picture about Put a Puzzle Together Mark in like the Last Pieces Missing Ever Done That Only They Are They at Lot of People Having You like Gamers. Where Is the Last Piece You Know I and in without Skin Illustration My Life. There Was a Piece Missing Is like to Have This Completed Picture Success in an Wrestling World Champion.

Something Was Still Missing Config out with the Last Piece Was Then I Met a Christian Couple through Other Business Ventures Who Invited Me to the Church, Born up One Day I Said I'll Be There and I Showed up on 17 October 1993 and Was at That Service That I Have Really Kind of an Aha Moment the Aha Moment Was an Invitation Was Given to Surrender My Life. It Is There Anyone Here Who Is Never Surrender the Heart and Life to Genesis and It Was an Aha Moment like I've Never Done That As I Was the First One to the Altar, Got on My Knees Surrender My Life to Jesus That Day and I Can Take in Life Is Never Been the Same since That's That's How That Happened. While I Have Great Effort Though Thankful You're Listening to the End TruthNetwork.Com Cuticle and I Am Excited to Hear You to Know.

Well, Maybe My Anyway Facebook All My New Fan Page for Fans and the like, and Follow Your Listening to the End. TruthNetwork.Com August. I Guess My Next Question Will Probably Be All Little I Might Be a Little Bit More Difficult. Okay so What Was Your Favorite Person to Wrestle Wu That Is a Difficult Question. You Try to Get Me to Narrow That down Because You Know Again I Had so Many Man so Many Memorable Matches. I Mean It Was Their Person. When Russell Lisa Yeah I like Well I Do Have To Say so.

One of the Most Talked about of Matches of My Career Really Wasn't a Match. It Was a Series of Match Is the Best-Of-Seven Series against a Guy Named Magnum TA Orders I Used To Call in the Day, but Maggot the Goal without Knocking Every All You Veritably Add in Man Is so Many People Talk about That Series of Match Is in the Chemistry We Had to You What Believability Right Yes and He and I Agree. Some People Say You Guys Were Stiff.

We like to Prefer to Say We Work, Snog Right, but I Have Had Fans since Then like It. Autograph Signings and, Because I Think They They Get Back in Those Days Ago We Walked Out Of the Arena Go Out Of All Those Other Matches That Masochist Nikita Maggot Was Real Bad Girl That Has a Luggage of Those Guys like Feather and and I Have To I Guess Say That That's Certainly Some of the Fondest Matches and and and Guy That I Worked with Was Magna but the List Could Be so Lame Ric Flair.

The Road Warriors Review Robert the Rock 'n' Roll Express Rick Rude Luger Lacks Staying Yeah I Mean I Feel like I Almost Every Match I Had Was It Was a Decent Match but That That Would Be a Highlight Yeah for Sure That Employee Sidak like That of a to Me That Was the Best Matches. Guess You Meant It Was so Tragic What Happened. It Was We Became the Best of Friends.

After That Anna and Chrissy See He He Loves the Lord Here and He Gives the Lord All the Credit for His Recovery.

You Know Recently. We Did a Skull Road Stories. He and I Did a Wrote Stories Where We We Share Some of Our Life Stories with with the Audience and Then They Got off Please Ask Us Questions and He Said Not One Time during That Whole Injury That He Ever You Know at Ascot to Heal Him. Instead He Said I Asked God What Would You Want Me to Do. How Do You Want Me to Dictate to Live My Life Moved Going Forward and and Just Thankful That to Still Be Alive and and I Want to Dedicate the Rest of My Life Back to You Now Is Pretty Amazing.

So I so I Guess I Guess Mom and Look What We Got Done for More. I so I Guess My Next Question Would Be All When You When You Left Russell K. And You Don't like the Excited Crowd Was No Longer Cheering You Find It Difficult to Deal with Exit As I Don't Have Ever Been Asked That before That I Can Recall, and That's a Great Question Because It Seems like That Is Something Many Athletes Struggle with Wethers Professional Wrestling in Their Booing You Are Cheering You or or Playing Football, Baseball, Hockey, Whatever Went When I Think When, in My View Mark When When Athletes Get to That Level That's Their Biggest Struggle When Do I Walk Away Will Ask the Kid, One of My Pet Peeves Was the Athletes Who Hung around Too Long. Right. And like Man, Why Can't These Guys Retire on Top Why Did You Gotta Go to Two or Three Other Teams in It and Then Just, You Know, Kind of Fizzle into the Sunset As Opposed to Sail off into the Sunset so I Said When I Make It I Said This Is a Kid When I Make It One Day.

I Want to Leave It on Top, Leverage Champion so When I Broke It. I Do Know Would Be Rusty, but When I Broke in Dr. Nolan, I Would Call Often I Would Have Discussions in the Car Not Say to Them. Hey Guys, I Would Be Out Of This Business by, I'm 35 on Active Wrestling to Begin to Be in Your Blood You Will Never Leave You Know Kind of Thing on My Show. So All That the Sale Was 33 When I Laugh and Looking Back I Don't Miss the Roar of the Crowd I Missed the Calm Lottery in the Dressing Rooms Right I Don't Necessarily Miss the Roar of the Crowd. So for Me I Guess Because It Was a Mindset That Already Had in My Mind I'm like No I'm Not Can It Be That Guy. The Russell so Long That They Wondered. Not That I'm Washed up Right and I Want to Leave with the Fans Wanting More and so I Feel like I Accomplished at an End, No Regrets on When I Left No Regrets at All It and Because the Wrestling Ended up Becoming a Training Ground for the Ultimate Call My Life Which Was Is to Be an Evangelist and a Minister and an Minister to the World and Bring Good News so I'm Very Grateful and Thankful for the Career I Had, but Have Never Regretted My Decision Leaving When I Did Your Listening to the End.

TruthNetwork.Com Yes or… The Good Segue into the Next Question. This Question OKs Purposes by Saying This I Found That God Has Not Led Me to Any Place in My Life That Has Not Led Me to the Next Stage of Not Not Found Useful for the Next and Now It Seems like I've Reached the Point Where in the Cultivation of Almost All the Experiences That I Have Come Back in the Play When I'm Doing That Right All the Have You Found the Same Thing Which Would Yes and It What It While What Just an Illustration You Just Laid out There That If We Take the Time to Look Back You Know Even Even through Try Am Triumph, Tragedy, Trials and Tribulations All the Different Things We Walked through How It Can Be a Catalyst to Make Us Who We Are Today, but Catapult Us out. I'll Say into What the Future Holds for Us Right When I Look at My Route.

For Example, I Look at My Wrestling Career, but I Do Wrestling Affluent Airplanes.

A Rent-A-Car Is a Statement Tells a Talk to Mike for the Front of Cameras Entertaining You and and Thousands of Others. Write an Ad and Then I Find Myself at an Altar 1993 Surrender My Life to the Lord, Not Again like like I Didn't Dream of Growing up and Being a Professional Wrestler I Did in a Million Years.

Every Dream I Would Be a Minister and Evangelist Error in Ministry Right but I Find I Found the Lord Opened Doors for Me in Here Fast for All These 28+ Years Later. I've Been to All 50 States 30 Different Countries. I Preach over 1200 Churches.

I Do All These Conferences Camps Administered to an Audience of One and the Largest Audience to Date Was over 73,000, the Island of Jamaica File Right Side-By-Side with with My Peak Performance Partner Lex Luger Right Facilitate These Men Man Camps with and I Sell That to Say.

I Look Back Now, Mark and and What I Do.

I Know I Flying Airplanes, Rent Cars and Stay in Hotels. I Talked to My Elbows in Front of Cameras Not to Entertain the Crowd Set out to Your Point Any of Us Could Look Back and Take Those Life Experiences and See How God in His Sovereignty Is Just Preparing Us What He Has for Us Next Right so My Great Question. I See That Your Own Life to. As I Have Followed You and Now Your Your Career Politics As for More. Let's Do It Less Nominal? All in Your Life Just in Your Life in General Was Her Most Enduring Member Wall Man Is Not Enough Time for Me to Ponder That Question Are Not Pop up Phrase like This Was One Member. If You Have One Memory Coupled You Could Choose from What What What Memory When You Think about Takes You Back yet Brings Tears to Your Eyes Are Really Enduring What Would Well from I Guess Tended the Initial Obvious Answer for Me Would Be 70 in October 1993, When, As My Dad Used To Say When I Grabbed the Old Rugged Cross.

That's What He Would Always Say, You Know That That the Day He Great He Couldn't Tell That Story without Tearing Often When I Think about That Story Mark. There Was an Elderly Man That Came to Me. His Name Was Buddy at the End of That Service and and I Want This Be an Encouragement to Her Listeners out There and He Said I'm Not a Wrestling Fan Not Here to Get an Autograph. I Want to the Story, and Michael K. And He's like Five Years Ago I Was Surfing through the TV Channels and I Was Wrestling Was on. I Stopped at His Watch and like Watching Wrestling like Wrestling, but He's Indicating You Are on Doing an Interview and Any Said in the Lord Spoke to My Heart and He Said These Words. Nikita Quote Pray for That Man Salvation of a Call to Ministry on His Life While Any Said for Five Years. I Faithfully Pray for You Every Day in a Glass I Would Limit Coming to Church Today Because I've Been Real Sick and He Looks Sick That Day – You White Male As I Was in, Woke up This Morning but Was like Stirring My Heart Prompted Me to Communist Honesty, I Kinda Wrestled with Kind of like I Don't Feel Good. I Don't Want to Go Is, but I Came Because I Sat in the Back Row Didn't Know You Were Here until You Walk across the Front Immediately Went past the Guy Been Praying for All These Years by Then He Teared up and He Said He Syndicated It Dawned on Me.

Out Of All the Churches All the Services God Prompted Me and Blessed Me Today to See You Surrender Your Life to Jesus While He Didn't Live Much Longer Than so Certainly That Thou Is One Amazing Highlight of My Life. A Memorable Moment You so Many Others. From the Birth of My Children Do to All the Travels in And/or Seeing One's Soul. Having the Privilege of of Leading Another Soil to the Foot of the Cross Which I the Privilege for Several – so Thank You for Those. Thank You for Those Questions Now Knows a Girl Doesn't like and Thank You for Coming in the Studio Today and It's Very Timely with Some of the Come Back to Some Well Lieut. Gov. Mark Robinson and Hey, Pray for This Man.
