  1. Marko, does this mean you’re not interested in having these guys at the convention next year? I mean, c’mon, it’d be so cool to see you fly in from the ropes (wearing your kilt, and maybe some Christian sun glasses) and pin the dude with the confederate flag.

    What can i say? I am truly inspired. I have heard the call and I must obey…

    … thus begins my 90 day training regime to become a the “ultimate-est” Ultimate Christian Wrestler…

    … picture this (waving one hand in the sky in a vision casting type gesture)…

    … I emerge from the smokey doors of the Fellowship Hall kitchen to a bumping, techno version of Twila Paris’ “God is in Control”. My masked head is raised in confidence (as are my index and pinky fingers) in the knowledge that i will soon use my Christian powers to defeat the other Christian wrestlers… uh… hmmm… well… MORE Christian power than the Christian power that the other Christian wrestlers have.

    Through the loudspeaker (singular) the ringmaster announces me as “Jacob-literator!” On the back of my overly-tight and excessively revealing (to the point that the “True Love Waits” people are uncomfortable) uni-tard, the words “Jacob-in-you-up” are emblazoned. In my walk to the ring, I throw ladels of lentil stew into the crowd, whipping them into a frezy of raw emotion …

    I will choose Jacob as my persona for reasons obvious. 1) Previous wrestling experience with “the MAN” himself has trained me like no other. 2) High proficency with a ladder. Jacob OWNS the ladder, baby! 3) Born with a signature “heel grab” move as attested with brother Esau. 4) Many sibling sons ensures great foundation for wrestling dynasty. 5) If ever defeated, can be easily re-invented with “other name” … “The ISRAEL”… with the tag line “I ISRAEL-LY gonna clothsline you, sucka!”

    … (gazing to the stars in a dreamlike way)… someday… someday…

    Sounds like what comes from my mouth whenever I am with my Middle Schoolers!

  4. coulda gone my whole life without seeing that – yuck! the flag was better than the lavendar shorts with the big hearts on the cheeks!

  5. Just so you know a good friend of mine has started up a Christian Wrestling troupe. I was skeptical at first (not a big wrestling fan), but he actually does put on a good show and is able to share the gospel. We had them come to our middle school group and it was great. Our students loved it and their message came through. Granted, there were no confederate flags. My friend is passionate about seeing the lost saved and views this as his ministry, so you might want to tap the brakes before you lump all Christian Wrestling into the same category.

  6. I am 300 pound former YM. My youth group in-joke was that my next career would be in wrestling. My name would be “The Reverend.” Costume: black speedo and clerical collar.

    Actually, my favorite part of the UCW site was the “Ultimate America” link. :-)
