Shawn Michaels

During an interview with “The Wrap”, Shawn Michaels discussed the role that Christianity plays in his life, as well as his recent movie roles. Here are the highlights:

On His Role In 90 Feet From Home:

I’ve always been intrigued that, for whatever reason, when your life changes because of your faith, somehow you’re not allowed to act in a different way. When I first got saved, I did struggle with it. It was all very brand new, and [I said], ‘My goodness, is there a do’s and don’ts of things we’re supposed to follow?’ I reached out to [WWE’s The Million Dollar Man] Ted DiBiase, and he said, ‘Shawn, let me ask you this: The guy that plays Satan or Judas in the church play — is he less of a Christian than the dude playing Jesus?’ And I said, ‘No, in our church, the one guy that played Satan every year in our Christmas pageant was the same guy who played Jesus [in another].’ And he said, ‘Exactly. It’s just a role.’

On His Role In The Marine 6:

Well, I’m playing a marine. Gosh, I have brothers and nephews and friends that are in the military that are better men than I am and they’re Christians. But my goodness man, I’m like everybody else. I get in traffic and I get angry too.

On Becoming A Christian:

The only thing that makes me a Christian, I guess, is the fact that I, I dunno, I guess I admitted and confessed that I needed help and that I couldn’t live this life on my own. Whatever that makes me, it makes me. I’m a better man for it, a better husband, a better father. All of that is on one side. I have this creative side of me that was put in there someway — and by someone — and I don’t feel like it’s something that I’m not supposed to use. It’s one of the few things I’m good at. The same thing as with wrestling.
