This is the Truth Network episode Q&A with goal with me today in the studio actually got a personal phone call but actually face-to-face.

The legendary man himself, not other than number one Mr. number one excuse me, George, South Jordan, I welcome.

Thank you so much Nick, thank you will all excited but great to have you on the Q&A show and and I just excited that you're here but before we jump into your questions.

The questions you have for me. There may be somebody listening today that that doesn't know who Mr. number one George self is a course you've had a 40+ year career as professional wrestling syrups your head. You have been so blessed Nick you I never want to even to this day go to a building or a town and not do something for the Lord, you know whether it's just a tele-fan about a merger share tracker just just pray for somebody just I don't just go do for me. I want to do sensible. That's why I'm able to still travel and thing so more so you're still out there more.

More than just entertaining fans in the ring which which you done now for over 40 years. Yes sir. Enter any crowds and entertain stirring up romance in a crowd you dirty guy. Yeah, you mean guy, you know, it's amazing. Nick be cussed out at ringside and then for them to come to my table and give that same guy a Bible and to see the change will not really mean those cuss words is amazing to see how grown people act once you share a Bible with him or something and they start backtracking you know and backpedal this past weekend I got cussed me called me every name in the book ringside and 50 minutes later he comes to my table still cussing. I give them a Bible and the first thing he did was grab his heart and he said you know he said I'm a man of the word. What were the question, but he is waiting to see like there they've hidden something from God. You know it's like writing see me while you go you know or hear me you didn't hear me and hear all the wonderful filthy word in my mouth because he had his God must be going there fingers plug in his ears right you know we we do right before covert week. Every year we go to write the race here in Charlotte. The big Charlotte motor Speedway. We would do an outreach there only campgrounds and at 9 AM in the morning you know I get to share my message my testimony with with race fans and at 9 AM they'll have a beer in their hand and and I'll go to mention Jesus and Nick they put it behind her back. I made it just right there hiding that beer from God and I just they listen they are missing Jesus. They put that beer behind her back and I think a buddy before you do.

And what's with that. Now I want to meet you. What's interesting is you just as soon as you mention the name Jesus right because you can talk to me.

I don't know what your experiences George. You could talk about God all day long right and in and and most people are pretty civil about that right but man minute you mentioned that name others hide in the beer behind your back is right or apologizing for the cuss words that just came out of your mouth.

Betty get it shot. Name if there's something about Damien buddy Mike goodness that will stir the hearts of men and women and children create create mean rage in conversation. Just all sorts of emotions will sure will and you know I love that that's such a good illustration. Nick is is because all people come simple. I'll give him a Bible. No say why believe in God and also list backup. I said oh what about his son, Jesus, and that Chaney opens up his personal where right at opens up a whole can of worms) because in a all white men got out day and just passing. I said you know Jesus don't present it you to his father.

You get presented and he still mad at me for telling him that I said Jesus will present you to his dad just like Nick, I will introduce you to my friend here Jesus must present you and if Jesus don't present you see in the father Ryan and and that's that's all wrestling term simple. This is a 101 but but that is what makes me you when are free and so special is that blood of Jesus. It makes me important. It makes me somebody you're listening to the truth and out of me to bring me vinyl tile from the top brand carpet right now number one in the reader's with the more that more thing, this is Nikita Cole and I want to thank limited support for supporting my new show man on Saturday afternoon at 1230 on the truth that were he to call up and I am here with a huge announcement like youman up men's conference.

MorningStar ministries portal South Carolina August 25 the 27th you think that's always a way. No, not too soon to sign up. What a lineup of speakers we have sent her brother David and face All-Star NBA All-Star how would his speaking world wrestling champion Lex Luther Chris Rick Joyner Delta force commander Gen. Gen. Jerry Ford tired Yours truly to keep a lawful renowned evangelist bring shelf and register today is live start all registered, you will want to miss your listening to the network and and I will stand before God Nick about I'll drop to my knees because the glory of God. I can't will be will blindly but honestly believe that I'm going to feel Jesus just common and grab me to come with me and that's the difference Jesus doesn't come to get you to take you to his father and all.

I'll let you get a guy walks in the show with the ticket I said pick the guys give you this ticket.

He said if you take my ticket, I cannot get any. And then I said all so how do you feel about heaven is all well I'm good with it internationally. When I said that ticket he said you get my ticket and I was preaching this guy and he finally realize what is trying to say that he thinks he just walk right into heaven. But this man-made wrestling show he is going to have a ticket get it without my ass right being with all I see what you're what you do.

What is your ticket to get into heaven you think you just walk into heaven and in the ticket is is the blood of Jesus Christ. And it's amazing people actually believe decently is just in the wrong thing. He will get rid of that ticket to get in the show but the wind into to your point, I had an opportunity. Remind me not to had to actually you want to say lately my mom to the foot of the cross and and have that conversation with her that salvation conversation and in her first two responses are pretty standard answers why believe in God, right which it was. That's that which is good.

I mean Scripture says you got a Bible here funny name says it all. The demons believe in God and tremble yellow. They got more common sense and we aren't exactly right yeah could bail tremble at the God you know I should. I can even remember the last time I might've tremble right thought I got but the point be a good person so humbly people have that attitude, good person or I believe in God doesn't enter to the good stock answers right but to your point, which that's a great step in the right direction might rise for us believe in God but that it comes a point time you have to surrender your heart and life to God.

So that you did that George and I'm willing to go. In the Q&A. Listen to the man up, show the interview I did with you there.

Get your full story and you've written a book which is that you don't work you wrestle dad yell work, no hassle, and because you know fans don't think we actually have a job. I think we just been playing over for 40 years LOL things just plan yeah is is no work involved is not all know that I don't know what a great title in the course of the website George insert can find your booking and you rest in schooling and learn more about all about it and learn more about your story how I how your parent sums to say this will all tease people by saying that your parents you were were both killed the car crash at the age of six. Yeah right you were six years siblings 13 siblings and your families are and then at the age of 13, led by your brother, Bill, yes I let you to the foot of the cross in and you met Jesus at age 13. Life's never been the same ever been since you ever been the same.

And I know one thing I remember about you George back in the days when when we share dressing rooms and locker rooms together's you have this Goss what's called gospel track that the plan of salvation with your little caricature in it right yes I sure did.

Yeah I sure did you still handle it.

I still have those out and actually spoke at a comic book tension years ago in a grown man dressed up like Star Wars figures you know it, not a human, all icons and I'm thinking and I think that amazing how romance can walk around like Darth Vader nearby thinks are normal. But if we see her Jesus there there ready to lock us up, but I did and an artist will many years ago. He said we will do a comic book track on you and so I said wow how did you know there were such a thing he did and he drew any more muscles and more hair than I got. But that's okay and I have shared these in a Nick ever now me and once a week I'll get a track mail back to me for my truck driver that just stopped in her trust… Yes, somewhere in and he's going through a rough time and just asking for prayer submit so many truck drivers over the years that Melvin Bibles that just from that old comic track.

They picked up in a truck stop somewhere in the country and they just think they don't have a Bible, they asked that I send him a Bible.

So it's amazing they do get they do get ready to leave those all of his only son, Justin, and Beth Israel as an and in wrestling. Dr. Vance – or do I lately labels. Everyone I got a lady that works at a Wendy's in Charlotte North Carolina and and she knows what they are and I tried for two years to get one through that window to give her before she says that when the home of my head why every morning I'll try and I don't know chewing to me at the time a day. But she knows what I'm trying to do so.

That's my mission is to get that lady track before she breaks my risk at that drive-through window that gets caught in the window and she will not take. She knows what it is she. I don't know you are lying open made find out but just a little ministry there. You know, in the drive through and you know years ago Nick told me and Debbie see Doug to quit giving out tracks did they really sure did.

They pulled me into a room now, and Jody Hamilton, and several of the agents and said you gotta quit passing the leave and he's laying and I looked around original date. Yes sir and I saw wrestlers with with writings on the back of their trunks and and and I'm thinking why say what you mean.

I mean guys have that diamond stud and and and and different names on the back of their trunks, but they said don't ever leave these laying around. Course I didn't listen but I shared that now many, many years later.

The only thing Leah is my gospel track. There is no WCW there is no championship wrestling from Alanna all of that.

A lot of those agents have passed away.

So the only thing that is still here. From that day in Alanna is my gospel track in God's word, which he said would last forever never what you're listening to the truth and that he to call.

I am excited to hear you do know well, maybe.

I just don't let the other day that Debbie see Doug is no longer around the pit Turner building and all that. Nothing. The only thing Leah is God's word. Everything will pass away, but God's word will last for my goodness, yes ma'am people can go half the going to have to go listen to.

They had already listen to your story, and the man up show and will Q&A with whole wheat.

While we could go out with us forever.

Really, it's a good word you bring in thinking today, but let's let's segue it out KK so give you the opportunity to ask me some questions that I have no idea what I have where this is going to go so let's let's let's all fire away to surmount. This is one that I think that listeners would love a lot of may not know that is more or less your reaction when it happened. The Great American Bash you against Ric flair, David Crockett is a special referee 30,000 people in American Legion Stadium and right in the middle of the match FAN jumps in the rain and jumps on your back right and so I guess my question is because I've been there a couple times and in the finance that are watching thinks they all think is part of the bars yeah yeah so even I have heard stories from policeman that are even security guys that are at ringside that just sit there and watch right because they think this is just another wrestler right, but this was this was at the height of of Nikita. I mean it was a nightmare she and Hannity and ADA love and to hate me in the middle of it and it is just so amazing to watch because you're your mindset is is in the match and then all uses man like nowhere on your back, I mean literally on your back well and in so you wonder what what my response yeah yeah the reaction can reaction this guy and that was it. It not happen prior to that Eva even though you know the office was getting death threats and stuff you know you kill the cholos of the come to Charleston or what I like the real I yeah no yes no people.

Let me know.

I was number one of their heart, wink wink, so to speak. Yeah. And San, I mean rings filling up with trash. The other people with wrought me as I'm hanging guys with chains like choking them out or beat them after the 123 the referee trying to pull him off me or whatever so so I was illustrating you. I was the right know that that nightmare city has yes been, and yet it was I guess in one very initial reaction was really shock about every surprise/shock because it is in my mind saw in the match right and I'm I'm focused like you said yes and and this from your backside. I never thought that he did come at you frontward know he came he came through told you in and what I remember is him like Kennelly Weiss lock McKenna pinning me up against the rope and all happiness with Saturday.

What I remember is unlike theirs flair flair selling on the mat. I could see David Crockett looking the other way you know and I'm like there's Crockett, outside the ring whose this. Yes, look at the like who is this John a member. This is gotta be a fan.

It has to be for so not keep in mind, up to 285, right after that point right so so I go one way I could feel them ducking the way and I try to go that is not trying. I would try to get up because he's got me leverage dry strike and trying to get him and I can't get him and then eventually think the cops finally figure out.

Yeah. Oh my gosh this is part of really is a fan in April and I like to say they really like the Keystone cops, but they get him out in the mass continue right but what that did for me though was put me on guard against my antennas were up from that point on five more times it would happen five more times fans of five against flair, one against magma, Norfolk, Virginia fans attempted to come in the ring and get lounge out, eat right and that's exactly right now and I wish the fans could find footage of that because there is actually security. There I want to share that story. People always they will bruise the please assume will they were there they were there like ringside and serving. I love that story just like you said that he you could fill it in that whole that whole arena that hold outsourcing yeah or amen trip leaders anywhere. Ivan and I went to me. We had pretty yelled fortunately fortunately because as a bag. As you know that's what you want.

You want people to not like you to write to him. I used to you know to to draw them in and buy a ticket in in in will build the audience or any of the self is a definite heat that that's so good. My next question. The course is not person would like to know when was the first time you met uncle Ivan, who we both loved so much.

Yes, my first introduction to uncle Ivan, was the day Nikita call off was born he was there for my birth of what I mean by that is beginning next day walk is so so for those who maybe don't know the story just real quick. It you don't know the full story George is a booklet go get heat until the ring redemption off of to get the full story, but from a five-minute phone call, showing up at a town I've never been in Charlotte North Carolina introduce myself to a promoter who led only at that point had a five-minute phone call conversation with months prior. You said you'll be my office in such a such a day with your head shape ago that's it here that allow child showed up the day he said to be there little while, and in fact you you appreciate this your very from over Charlotte. I've never been to Charlotte. I drove in to Charlotte, I pass Billy Graham Boulevard, a member I know that Nick is going to court and I were in Minneapolis right where I grew up you know not Siberia but Minneapolis but it ended in. I kept driving up this interstate and I'm like okay there's the city, but I feel like I'm certain get out of the city so I stopped at Sugarcreek wow exit and that's gas station still there and in that course you know cell phones right right got out, I stopped at the gas station pay phone and called the number I had Jim Crockett promotions answered and said I'm supposed to meet Mr. Crockett today and I like what where are you and I'm like I here's where I am the call come back down the Billy Graham Boulevard to give me directions. I walk in the office to write back to his office introduce me to Jim Crockett. He says wait here walks out, walks back in with two guys like no hide nor hair of Dr. total and I would call off the little boy says meet your new partner you're listening to the Truth Network and Nikita call fear if you're needing to buy a car and have marginal credit for 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 today. W. S. M. C. The number because you are number one you're listening to the Truth Network and like just like that unity. How is is okay. He needs a name because her newest to call off his eyes can be the nephew I of uncle. I one right and an Crockett gaming Nikita and some of the need to this day I still I just I just merely focused on the key in my mind like Nikita: Nicole's ring to it. I go Mr. Crockett out Nikita Nikita. It is so Nikita is born that day I meet Ivan that day. While course, the because she said the rest of CJ's goodness that last.

I have some of that but I will surely the actual first time I ever met on Friday that never even I don't know that everything seen them. I don't think prior while while just placing a glycol man what a great man. My last question would be Nick know for the listeners and a lot of wrestling fans as I hear it all the time at the shows. What would you say to someone, it says there is no hope for me and I hear that a lot they say.

Yeah your rash work that they think that we all got it together because were pro wrestlers in writing, but I hear that simple words they say there yeah I understand your story but there is no hope for me and if someone told you that what what what was Stetzer. That's a really great question and doctors. I mean, as you and I know I mean there's there's always whether it's a shred or a sliver of light that nobody's so far gone that that God can't reach that right and God can't reach down and touch their hardens extend his hand.

No matter how low they think they are and be able to pull them all: in fact, I do a lot of conferences call man up conferences such a one-day conference you local churches and all over America and I did one a while back, Kentucky and the pastor works with three rehab center drug rehab centers we had about 50 or so guys attend from the drug rehab's and many of these guys stories would be you know that there's no hope for me to come to find out that they can be set free of drug addiction. They can set free of alcohol addiction or any other addiction. If there was simply humble themselves and surrender their heart to God and on. And so for those who maybe even listening out there now. Maybe you struck a chord George with that question that they right now in their mind feel like there's no hope for me. There's there's no answer.

I've done too much. You've probably heard that God could never forgive me. As I've done too much but yet you said and the man up show but yet your favorite Scriptures John 316 where it on the back of your wrestling tights and and to understand that God so loved the world right that he gave his only you pointed out, his only track didn't like pick and choose yet that unit. You're one of 13 siblings right so there's the pick and choose right right when Samuel wanted to anoint the next king of Israel. Several sons were laid out before him before he selected David Reitan but God sent his one and only son, that whosoever should believe in him would not perish but have everlasting life.

So I would just encourage even anyone listening out there or in answering that question that person assist me. There's no hope is just a really kinda challenge them to rethink that and say wait a minute. Have you ever given God a chance and and or surrendered your life to Jesus and give just give him achieve this and in but here's the here's the challenge to fully submit to him. That's right, to fully commit to him and he can't do it halfheartedly. And it's not a little cookie-cutter prayer that that you will find in the Bible you know surrender with true surrender looks like this is submitting and committing and yielding our whole life to him and I know you can testify to this and I can as well. When you do that God steps in wherever a situation seemed hope less is now all the sudden field with no message that that's wonderful that that is so good that is so good well think you have a great story and I hope people will buy the book and learn more about about you've overcome your story at your your your and overcome her and so no one out there you're listening out there. Listen, I don't care how how bad it might seem, God came to give us the opportunity to overcome this fall and broken world and to say this to their were all imperfect people were all flawed.

All have fallen short of the glory of God and so just recognize and realize it's great to have you on Saturday will talk to you all day, my friend, that's amazing. I thank you for tuning into another episode of Q&A Macola a send in your your request your questions to me and I'll give you a call and we'll get you on the show next time.
