My goals are to see my boys come alongside me and they are in a lot of ways, even though my son decided not to re sign with WWE, it was a personal decision that I was very very proud of. We can talk until we're blue in the face about how he wasn't used in a better way which is kind of a thorn in my side but you know, it is what it is, and it's a funny business. But nobody will argue the point that he was one of the best hands they had. He made a life choice, he finally said look, and I realized that you're right. The reason I didn't want my children to be wrestlers wasn't because I didn't love to wrestle, it was the lifestyle and the demand on me to be away from my family. Once he had a son, that just hit him like a brick. So he's doing great and I can't even get into the things he's got going but I'm just very proud of him to be honest.
But the ministry is ongoing, people ask me all the time did you see yourself becoming a pastor? And I say no not really, because I feel like the celebrity that I was allowed to have is far reaching and worldwide and it's kind of like when you go fishing, you've gotta have bait and there's different bait for different people and I guess my being a former wrestler is the bait and people who often come to see me are wrestling fans and they come to see a wrestler and a lot of them leave having met god so that's what I want. Will I be a pastor? I don't think I have the patience to be a pastor but it would be just like god to say okay son I'm going to teach you a little patience now why don't you be a pastor, and if that happens then fine but I'm happy doing what I'm doing.
Again, it's an opportunity to give back, it's like I tell guys all the time that one day we're all going to die and someone's going to stand over us and give a eulogy, "how do you want to be remembered?" do you simply want to be remembered for being a world famous wrestler who made a lot of money or do you want to be remembered for somebody who was compassionate and took the opportunity to count your blessings and try to give back, and it's what I did to change my life, I put the needs of my family and my wife and my kids ahead of my own needs at a time in my life where, had I not chosen that path, I could've ended up like a lot of my buddies who unfortunately aren't with us anymore. And I'll tell you what I'm really proud of Jake, I've been with Jake since we both started, I've been down the dirt roads with Jake and I kept waiting to pick up the paper or get the call that Jake had been found dead somewhere and the guy's just doing a remarkable job and I'm just really really proud of him and I just hope he keeps going.
