The Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit in Pro Wrestling
If you are a Christian and believe in Jesus Christ you also believe in the Holy Spirit. And you know that the Holy Spirit brings us seven gifts. The gifts of wisdom, understanding, right judgment, knowledge, fortitude, piety, and fear of the lord.
If you look at pro wrestling, you can see all of those gifts in there. In what superstars you may ask? Well you are about to find out.
When it comes to wisdom look no further than the Rated R Superstar, Edge.Edge is the ultimate oppurtunist. He knows when to strike. He knows when to take advantage of the situation. He definately represents wisdom.
Who else is smart enough to marry the Smackdown (former) general manager, Vickie Guerrero and have her take his career to a whole different level?
I should also point out how smart he is in picking women. Lita, Eve(in the photo), Vick...well not when it comes to her looks because who really wants that fat body in your bed(Escobar we are looking at you)?
Point is Edge has a lot of wisdom when it comes down to it. An opportunist, he sleeps with the right people, creates different meanings for the "R" in Rated R. He does it too well.
Matt Hardy is definitely understanding when it comes to Pro Wrestling. The dude understands that he is not Jeff. He understands that he isn't gonna be pushed because Jeff has his legal issues. He understands that he has to jab to basically everybody. He understands that when he finally wins a World Heavyweight Championship he will be around the age of 60. If he makes it that long of course.
Matt has amazing understanding to the fact that he isn't getting pushed any time soon. Despite all the talent he has in his body, Hardy understands that it will not happen. He understands that if he wants to get pushed, he needs to become his brother.
When it comes to judgment you always hear a gong. The Undertaker is the Right Judgment in the WWE. He judges whether you will rest in peace or whether his old bitter heart will actually let you live. He is the jury in the WWE. He carries the holy grail as he calls it and if he judges you are worthy he will allow the WWE to have him lose the title.
If he does not think you are worthy I've got two words for you (no not the DX slogan): Tombstone Piledriver. And you will fall like the rest. So hope he doesn't pass judgment on you.
Knowledge, hmm, you'd have to be an idiot not to figure that one out. Chris Jericho is the representative of knowledge in the WWE. He has knowledge the rest of u dream about. He knows 42 dictionaries by heart. How else can you remember all those big words?
Jericho knows Webster's definitions and he'll tell them to you whenever he wants. He will use those big words to insult you harshly(even if you have no idea what the hell he said). Point is no one is this smart except Chris Jericho which is why he is knowledge in the WWE, you gelatinous tapeworms.
Nobody has more fortitude in the WWE than Rey Mysterio. Fortitude means the same thing as courage and he certainly has a lot of that. You gotta have courage to fight guys twice your weight and not be afraid. Then again the sport is fake, but not to all those little kiddies in the crowd who love and adore Rey.
The other fortitude he shows is when it comes to his weight. He weighs around 170 pounds, if I recall. How much fortitude do you think he shows for that. He knows he can't put on any weight so he uses that courage to just stare at that cake and say no to it. Good for you, Rey. Good for you.
Piety meas to have loyalty and faithfulness. Cena sure does have a lot of that. Despite his absolute horrific wrestling ability he has loyalty to all his fans and won't quit. Instead he makes us suffer through what he calls his wrestling matches.
He also has loyalty to Vince. He has loyalty to Vince and getting Vince all of his merchandise. Vince does love that money and he knows Cena is the guy that makes him a whole bunch of it.
The most annoying loyalty Cena holds is to being a face. Like, really Cena? You can't go a heel for even two minutes? You have to pander to all those 9-year-olds in the crowd rather than go gangster again and actually put on a decent show for the crowd. Wow, John, just wow.
Fear of the Lord
Fear of the Lord means that god and only God deserves our absolute trust and commitment. When you think god and WWE you think of one person. No not Cena, but he is up there. Actually thinking Vince McMahon.
CM Punk knows very well that his trust and faithfulness should belong to Vince McMahon. Vince likes him and Punk likes him (on camera). They try to put up stipulations where Punk would become champ. Sadly it doesn't turn out so well as he still loses.
You wold never hear Punk talk to Vince likes Vince is a no one. Vince is the WWE God and Punk knows it. He fears him and attempts to please him with what he does.
Punk believes without the lord he is nothing and must give the lord all he has. Which is why he is the perfect person for this.
Religion can be found anywhere even in Pro Wrestling. Hell if you ask me Pro Wrestling is Religion. Jericho claims to be a Saviour, Undertaker and Kane say they've been in hell, Undertaker has risen from the dead(just like Jesus), and so much more.
Hope you found that at least somewhat of a compelling read. I'm off, Bleachers.
