Trailer: Former WWE Wrestler Shawn Michaels Stars In Christian Movie “The Resurrection Of Gavin Stone”


shawn-michaels-new-660x400Shawn Michaels is a popular name in the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) in the 90s but he was forced to retire due to health related issues in the 1998.  In 2017, the WWE Hall of Fame star will appear in a faith-based movie titled “The Resurrection of Gavin Stone”.

WWE Studios and BH TILT in association with Walden Media, Vertical Church Films, and Power in Faith Productions have collaborated to bring the movie to the theatres on the 20th of January 2017.


According to the film’s synopsis the inspiring comedy is about Gavin Stone, a washed-up former child star who is forced to do community service at a local megachurch and who pretends to be Christian so he can land the part of Jesus in their annual Passion play, only to discover that the most important role of his life is far from Hollywood.

The cast includes retired professional WWE wrestler Michaels as well as Brett Dalton ( “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”), comedian Anjelah Johnson-Reyes (“Our Family Wedding”), Neil Flynn (“Scrubs”), and D.B. Sweeney (“The Cutting Edge” and “Taken 2”).

“The Resurrection of Gavin Stone” is Michael’s first non- wrestling related movie and first faith-based project.

Shawn Michaels had recounted his faith in his autobiography, Wrestling for My Life: The Legend, the Reality, and the Faith of a WWE Superstar where he talked about knowing about Jesus but never having an encounter with Him until he suffered from addiction and health problems. It was at this point Michael and his wife sought God.

Michaels in the movie will relate with fans on the hope he has found in Jesus and you can catch the movin in January of 2017!
