Wrestlers and Religion.

Hey guys, was just reading an old article online about wrestlers and religion. Chris Jericho had some interesting stuff to say about it. He said because of his faith he would not do anything sexual on wwe but is ok with doing violence. I was wondering if anyone knew of any wrestlers who were very committed to their faith. Many wrestlers seem to be religous.

So far I know of:

Sting - Born again Christian, wouldn't come to WWE partly because of this
Ultimate Warrior.
Hogan - Speaks quite often about God's will
Eddie Guerrero
HBK - Born again Christian
Chris Jericho.
Ezekiel Jackson - anyone who has read this guys twitter will know what I mean
Goldust - has blocked non-Christians and unbelievers off his twitter
Goldberg - Jew
Jinder Mahal - Sikh

I'm sure there are more that other people could elaborate on.

I remember a long time ago there was some lowly jobber that had a religious fundamentalist gimmick that didn't go over very well.

Does anyone know about people like Undertaker, Kane, Austin, etc? Are there any Muslim or Atheist wrestlers?

Re: Wrestlers and Religion.

Unusually, I always find it interesting to learn about the faiths of wrestlers. A lot of the guys have to turn to it after painkiller addictions and stuff like that (Eddie, HBK, Superstar Billy Graham, although I think he always was even before)

I'm pretty sure CM Punk is atheist. I'm not a religious guy at all so I always found it unusual when a supposed Christian would take part in a controversial angle with some edgy stuff. (Eddie/Rey/Dominic feud, for example)

Yeah, punk comes across like he would be an Atheist. Can't think of many others though.

Jake the Snake found some time to be a born again christian in the 90s when he wasnt busy taking drugs, fucking hookers and abandoning his kids.

Re: Wrestlers and Religion.

I'm know CM Punk's an atheist because he said that he was on an interview about a month or two ago. I can't link it. I forgot what it was. Anyway, he seams like one to me.

Re: Wrestlers and Religion.

I did some digging and one of cm punks tweets read the following:

"There is no god, and the cage wasn't 30 feet."

It was in response to something Ted Dibiase tweeted to him.

So it's safe to say Cm Punk is indeed an Atheist.
