Liberals have imposed their will on American culture.
Anything that rounds counter to the left’s mission is met with resistance and sometimes scorn.
And one wrestling hall of famer said something in a speech that drove liberals nuts.
Professional sports are becoming increasingly “woke” as liberals attempt to drag society further to the left.
One of the starkest examples is the attempt to secularize all of American culture.
Liberals get squeamish any time people start talking about Christianity publicly.
And that’s exactly what Hall of Fame wrestler Undertaker did.
The legendary WWE star, whose real name is Mark Calaway, spoke openly during his induction speech about how his wife helped lead him back to faith.

Calaway admitted that before his wife encouraged him to go to church with her, he had “lived a pretty excessive lifestyle and I wasn’t living my life for God.”
“The famed wrestler said he resisted going with his wife to her Austin, Texas, church because he felt he was already a ‘good’ person and didn’t need to go to church. He also noted that he didn’t want to deal with the ‘brimstone’ the minister would hurl his way once his presence became known in the congregation. While he was uncomfortable at first, he soon came to appreciate the services.”
Calaway also admitted that he was “missing out” on living a life of faith.
He described his church experience by saying, “I found myself being kind of tense and pensive to kind of leaning in and like, ‘wow this is pretty cool.’ And that started my journey back to leading my life the way I should…I’m not perfect. I’m still in my process. I’m getting there but I spend a lot more time these days reading my Bible.”
In recent years, entertainment celebrities have been discouraged from discussing their Christian faith.
Former professional football and baseball player Tim Tebow became a lightning rod of criticism because he wore his faith on his sleeve.
Many in the media even mocked him when he prayed after scoring a touchdown.
The phenomenon is particularly pronounced in Hollywood.
Actor Matthew McConaughey once explained:
“I have had moments where I was on stage receiving an award in front of my peers in Hollywood, and there were people in the crowd that I have prayed with before dinners many times, and when I thanked God, I saw some of those people go to clap, but then notice that, ‘bad thing on my resume’ and then sit back on their hands.”
Calaway being open about his faith gives oxygen for more athletes and entertainers to do the same.
