Savior Series: Let There Be Wrestling

And on the eighth day, God said, "Let there be...Wrestling, Jabroni!" Then he pile-drived Satan through a cumulus cloud.

The truth is I never much cared for Wrestling, not that I didn't like it, but I never got excited about it.

Then I happened to read Dick Normandy's "Hey Losers, You Do Know Wrestling is Fake, Right?" and "An Open Apology To Wrestling Fans."

Personally, I would've found some of it offensive—someone telling me that something I loved was fake—and reading some of the comments afterward I wondered if wrestling fans believed in Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny.

But one man pointed out to me in Dick's "Open Apology" that wrestling for entertainment has been sanctioned in the Old Testament.

Yes, according to Adam, who, after a quip I made in jest about wrestling being condemned in the Bible (which it obviously is not) said, and I quote below:

"Please provide sourced examples of where wrestling is condemned in the Bible. I can actually provide you with Scripture references that show quite the opposite. There are no less than three passages in the Bible that specifically reference wrestling as symbolic of struggle.

"In the first and most prominent, Jacob heads to the desert to discover himself and who is he supposed to be and finds himself literally wrestling God. Thanks for your time and your effort, but guess what, at the end of the day, you're still a tool."

This got me thinking: wrestling does promote almost mythological types in togas, has a good-versus-evil dynamic, and let's face it—Mary Magdalene is really the first Diva.

So without further waiting I present the best WWE/Biblical Tag Teams in the history of the world.
