013 – Wounds & The Dark Side of The Ring
It’s no secret that the professional wrestling has a dark side to the business. The TV Series “Dark Side of The Ring” has provided a fresh look at some of the darkest moments that many wrestling fans are familiar with. Wounds are made in the dark moments and they may stick around a lot longer than the story itself. On this episode, Alan shares about seeing his own wound show up in the story of Bruiser Brody and his son.

012 – Looking Back & Moving Forward on The Road to WrestleMania
The Road to WrestleMania will be ending soon at WrestleMania 35, but this year’s show has not had the usual appeal for many fans. Sometimes we need to be reminded of what we love about past WrestleManias to help us get excited about the next one. Revisiting our own past can help provide perspective on the road we’re traveling in life too! Men, I want to personally invite you to the New 4RMations Men’s Ministry Battlefront weekend! Find out more about how God may be wanting to show you more through your own story here: http://new4rmations.com/event/mens-battlefront-weekend-2/

011 – What’s your 3:16?
After “Stone Cold” Steve Austin won the King of the Ring Tournament back on June 23, 1996, he told the world about Austin 3:16 and the bottom line. Austin’s words took on a life of their own and are still put on T-shirts to this day. Trouble is, we’re probably living with some words that we’ve said in the past too. But is that what God wants for us?

010 – NC Saturday Nights: Pro Wrestling & Blowing Up Christmas Trees
On this episode, Alan talks about how God connected two events he was able to attend on back-to-back Saturday nights in North Carolina: EWF Starrslamm and The Allies Gathering of Men’s Ministries. EWF Starrslamm was a night of great pro wrestling action and one of the highlights was meeting pro wrestling legend George South. At the Allies Gathering, men gathered, blew up some Christmas trees and heard Gary Barkalow speak about fire. This episode is a reminder that God is always speaking, we just need to be listening!

009 – Strong Style Fire
Stepping out into new territory always brings new challenges. Endurance, strength and confidence has to survive in order for us to get where God’s called us to go. Sometimes the only way to last is to fire ourselves up! An epic moment in a great match from New Japan Pro Wrestling captures Hiroshi Tanahashi showing the power of firing up in the middle of a battle. It’s time to unleash the Strong Style Fire!

008 – Coming Down From The Rafters
The Man called Sting came down from the rafters in the battle of WCW vs. nWo and the rest is pro wrestling history. In our lives, we may find ourselves in the rafters and sitting on the sidelines. The rafters can offer protection from the battle, but we’re not meant to stay there if we want the abundant life Jesus offers in John 10:10. In this deeply personal episode, Alan shares the pain that pointed him toward the rafters and how God has led him to come back down.

As a reflection of the darkness surrounding him, Sting’s appearance and personality changes. But the true motives of this story’s Hero are revealed in his actions!

006 – The Larger Story and the nWo, Part 2: The Betrayal
Similar to the enemy in the Larger Story, Hulk Hogan turns on WCW and professional wrestling fans on July 7, 1996 at the WCW Bash at the Beach Pay-Per-View. The New World Order is formed and WCW is in trouble. Chaos begins and nobody’s safe…

005 – The Larger Story and the nWo, Part 1: An Invasion
As John Eldredge reminds us in his awesome book, EPIC, we live in a Larger Story written by God Himself. Every great story has a beginning where everything seems normal…until an enemy appears! The professional wrestling world was turned upside down when Scott Hall made a shocking appearance on WCW Monday Nitro on May 27, 1996. WCW would never be the same again…

004 – Not Called To Be Mr. Perfect
Mr. Perfect was an all-time great pro wrestling character, but God never called any of us by that name. Whatever pursuit we may have, trying to reach the wrong goal will only lead to frustration. Matthew 6:33 says to “Seek first the Kingdom of God…”, reminding us that we have to keep our focus on what’s truly important!

003 – The Biggest Wrestling Match of All Time
