Former WWE World Champion and World Heavy Weight Champion, Shawn Michaels, shares from an unguarded, faith-filled perspective what a real Christian walk is like in an usual world that always straddles the line between real and notWith millions of fans and numerous awards, WWE superstar Shawn Michaels had adulation and all the attention he could ask for-but then he discovered there was something more. When he became a committed Christian during his years in the WWE, it changed everything.In Wrestling for My Life, Michaels shares from his heart about the highs and lows of his life inside the WWE.
Included are never-before-shared stories and an intimate look into his career, as well as insights from his new life of hunting, family, and faith.
Now retired after 25 years in the ring, Michaels reveals what it is like to be a man of faith in this unusual world and shares wisdom for all of us.
Arguably one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all-time, Michaels offers readers an intimate look at his transformation from a self-destructive, drug-addled superstar to a devoted father, husband, and born again Christian. Michaels wrote about his career up to 2002 in his first book, Heartbreak and amp; Triumph (2005), and here he focuses on how he incorporated his faith into the dazzling and strange world of pro wrestling, including his role as a mentor to young wrestlers and his relationship with WWE CEO Vince McMahon. Each chapter leads with a short Bible passage, and as his story moves from wrestling to his retirement in 2010, he provides faith-based advice on subjects such as tithing, self-awareness, and selfdiscipline. Still, the book is not overly preachy and is told with self-deprecating humor and candor. Michaels, who currently hosts a hunting show on the Outdoor Channel called MacMillan River Adventure, has appeal across multiple demographic categories, and this slim volume has something for all of them.
