WWE Mega Star Shawn Michaels Shares How JESUS CHRIST Saved Him

WWE superstar Shawn Michaels is a Christian and he is not ashamed to let everyone know it. The wrestler known to many as the heartbreak kid, Mr.Wrestle-mania or the show-stopper was born as Michael Shawn Hickenbottom in July 22, 1965, in Chandler, Arizona.

Shawn Michaels was raised in a military family along with his four siblings in San Antonio, Texas. He says he knew he wanted to become a professional wrestler when he was only 12 years old.

After graduating high school, Shawn Michaels went to Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. However, while there he realized that college life was not for him. It was then that he began pursuing a career in professional wrestling.

In his climb to professional wrestling in the WWE, Shawn Michaels became known as a troublemaker, which in turn resulted in him being fired from the WWE. He then turned to drugs.

“I was one of those good drug addicts, I suppose I hid it better.” Shawn reveals.

“Everything was going well professionally, but in my personal life, I was an angry young man and to this day I don’t know why. You know I was raised a good boy..Um you know I think a lot of it has to do with I started wrestling when I was 19 years old. And I don’t think I even knew who I was as a young man yet and then all of a sudden I go into this line of work to where I can pretend to be whatever I want and I just used that as an escape.” He further explained.

As his drug use accelerated, Shawn Michaels started Degeneration X, a group of young rebels that broke every rule in the WWE. Then in 1998, a severe back injury made forced Shawn into early retirement. Doctors said he would never wrestle again. Shawn immersed himself deeper into drinking, doing drugs and other immoral deeds.

In 1999, Shawn met Rebecca. She had a strong Christian background and became instrumental in helping Shawn get on the right path. Soon after they started dating, Rebecca and Shawn got married in 1999. A few weeks after their wedding Rebecca got pregnant. At that time Shawn was still heavy on medication,taking about 35 pills daily as he had bad knees, a bad back and a damaged shoulder.

After their baby, Cameron, was born in 2000, Shawn cut back a little on the pills but didn’t stop. One day, Shawn Michaels was holding his baby when the child said, “Daddy’s tired.” Shawn recalls, “It was in that moment that I realized he was beginning to notice how I was acting. It was the worst feeling I had ever had.”

Shawn says he made a decision to quit that lifestyle that same day. He started attending church with Rebecca.

Shawn says his life began to change right then. 2 years later, Shawn joined a Bible study and gave his heart to the Lord and was baptized.  “It was like burdens were falling off me and chains were being loosened.” Shawn says.

After back surgery, Shawn came out of retirement in 2002 and wrestled for the last time in 2010. “When I returned to wrestling, I went back a changed man. I had adopted a new way of thinking.” Shawn reveals.

Before getting in the WWE ring, Shawn would kneel and pray out in the arena as a way of shining his light in the darkness.  “All I wanted was for God to help me be a good witness on the platform He had brought me back to.” Shawn Michaels said.

Preemie Found In Trash Bag With Maggot-Infested Head Wound, Now She’s Fighting For Her Life

Published

on

One thing I will never understand, and am quite sure many people can relate, is how a person can be able to abandon their little defenseless baby at a time they need them the most and walk away.

Unfortunately, such things still happen. In a recent case that is garnering a lot of attention, a baby girl was reportedly found inside a plastic bag in Vietnam. The baby had been exposed to the sun, had several mosquito bites and had a nasty wound in her head that had become infested with maggots.

According to sources, the child was found tied to a coffee tree in Lam Dong Province, in the Central Highlands of Vietnam.

When she was found, the baby was in a horrific condition. Doctors feared she would not survive, and if she did, then she wouldn’t last too long.

Luckily, Venerable Minh Tai, abbot of the Hue Quang Pagoda, came to the poor baby’s rescue.

Tai has taken in more than 100 orphans over the years, giving them a safe place to live and grow until they found a foster family.

When Tai learnt of the baby girl’s plight, she immediately adopted her. With the help of her nuns, Tai currently takes care of ten orphans.

Tai also managed to raise $25,000 from kind Facebook users and the temples in Vietnam to pay for the baby’s medical bills.

The baby girl was named Hoai An, which means perpetual peace in Vietnamese. Baby Hoai has a number of health issues but doctors are doing the best they can for her.

“I wouldn’t write her off at this point; that would be wrong. There is a chance her condition will improve.” Dr. Tang Kok Kee, a neurosurgeon treating Hoai told the Straits Times.

Tai also is doing the best she can for baby Hoai, by giving her unconditional love and praying for her. “She is sleeping better, crying louder and has more of an appetite. She has also gained about 700g in weight and her reactions have improved,” Tai said.

Please remember to share this article with friends and family to garner prayers and well wishes for baby Hoai as she fights for her life and to show appreciation for all the incredible people who have helped so far.

Detroit’s Greektown neighborhood, Five Guys franchise manager was having a normal day at work when he saw a familiar face at the restaurant — It was Leonard. He noticed that the customer was not feeling alright.

There is always something amazing going on within the local communities. Last month, customers of the Five Guys restaurant in Detroit witnessed an uplifting random act of kindness between the restaurant staff and a sick customer.

Detroit’s Greektown neighborhood, Five Guys franchise manager was having a normal day at work when he saw a familiar face at the restaurant — It was Leonard. He noticed that the customer was not feeling alright.

“This time when he came in, he was having trouble ordering, saying he was sick,” Justin told FOX 2 Detroit.

As Leonard struggled to make his order, Justin decided to give him the full meal: a burger done “all the way” (topped with all the classic ingredients), plus fries and a drink.

And he didn’t charge him for the meal. “He was so unwell that he couldn’t even process the order himself,” Justin said. “So we just gave it to him.”

It didn’t just end there. Leonard was too weak to feed himself. That’s when a Justin stepped up once again and fed the man.

The manager has really won the hearts of many people.

“At Five Guys we don’t have — or believe in canned interactions but in the genuine interactions,” Justin told Liftable. “All of our interactions are genuine.”

“Every guest is special to us,” he told FOX 2. A random customer at the restaurant took photos of the scene and shared them online. The photos have since gone viral.

Justin was surprised that people were making a big deal of it after his story went viral and got picked up by news outlets.

“It came as a surprise to me, that so many are surprised to see this level of service for our guests,” he told Liftable.

“What I am most grateful for is the impact the story has had on my team,” Justin said. “Too often my staff and I hear negative stories about the city we call home and often morale is lowered because ‘who wants to work in that environment.’”

It is amazing how a small act of kindness can impact a lot of people in the community.

“I believe that every person has the ability to make an impact on a person’s life through small acts, like this one,” Justin said.
