In today’s episode I interviewed a special guest Chris Whaley, Masked Saint. Christopher's life is a fascinating story of overcoming challenges, pursuing his dreams, and finding his calling in life. Despite his difficult childhood, which was plagued by health problems, Christopher persevered and eventually found success as a professional wrestler. He even wrestled against some of the biggest names in the industry, including The Undertaker and The Ultimate Warrior.

After leaving the world of wrestling, Christopher became a Baptist minister and wrote a book about his experiences helping people. This book was later turned into an award-winning movie that was shown in theaters and on streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Despite his new career as a minister, Christopher found himself helping people more as a wrestler than as a pastor. He was known for his kindness and generosity, and he helped many people who could not physically help themselves.

Christopher's life is a testament to the power of perseverance and the importance of pursuing one's dreams. Despite facing numerous obstacles and setbacks, he never gave up on his goals, and he eventually achieved great success both in and out of the wrestling ring. Even at the age of 68, Christopher proved that it's never too late to pursue your dreams when he returned to the ring to go out on his own terms.
