Pope's unfiltered thoughts on Hulk Hogan's Reinstatement into the WWE Hall Of Fame (Full Read on Facebook.com/ElijahBurke): If someone had told me that myself and Hogan would be working side by side, standing and posing in the ring together with blood running down the face of Hulk, I'd say they were insane but that is exactly what happened. The kid whom 4 years earlier was given advice on how to play the game was now IN the game saving this legendary hero from a beat down being led by another childhood idol and favorite, "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair. It was stuff that anybody who grew up watching the sport of wrestling could only dream of, to be in the ring with the 2 biggest superstars in wrestling history, truly Amazing Moment in my career.
But the really "cool" part was Hulk letting me in. The things he would share with me when he had time to talk I simply don't feel like I was privy too. He shared personal detailed accounts of things he was going thru at the time with me about his personal life, his business dealings, the dark place he was in and he would always acknowledge that he's in a better place now because of his current wife and him giving his life to Christ.
For me to hold hate in my heart for Hogan's "sin" would in turn cause me to be one of hate myself which I simply have no time or energy for. The man behind the legend made a mistake and unfortunately will have to live with it for the rest of his life. There's no need to take someone's lively-hood away from them because of there past mistake. Not an ideology, but an admitted mistake during the same time the man placed a gun in his mouth.
Hulk, if you are truly the man whom I believe you to be then you know that "Whom The Son sets free, is free indeed." Go forward and live your life accordingly accepting the good, and weathering the bad while continuing to be a positive mark on humanity that you have been for over 3 decades. 
In closing, I simply want to say, "HULK HOGAN....I Forgive You." ~PHS (2 Cor 5:17) "Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation." #WWE #WWF #HulkHogan #EtremeRules #Welcome #Back #Hulk #Hogan #WWEHOF #Wrestling #Sports #Entertainment #ESPN
You know you've felt like this. ~PHS

As I deplane to board I won’t ask why, deep in thought reflecting as I enter the sky, I’ll only smile and rejoice as I think of my friend, imagining his excitement when he finally made it in.

I can envision him entering with a smile on his face, leaping and dancing because he finished the race. You know the race that’s not given to the swift nor to the strong, but unto the one who endures till the end, that faithful one who holds on. “Hold on to what?” one may ask, to a rope or a man, no not that, but hold on to one’s faith in God which was always a part of his plan. For better or worse, through sickness or health, the hand of God was something Matt always felt. 
We hold this truth to be self evident, very much true, because the life he lived impacted the lives of many, not just me and you; In such a way that you remember him not because of his prior art form, but by his commitment to discipleship, even wearing his faith on his arms.

Never being selfish saying “why me” or complaining about God’s Will, Matt faithfully shouldered his cross knowing that “BY HIS (Christ) STRIPES” he was healed. And healed he is too; no more hurt or pain, no more anguish amidst, nothing but tears of joy and celebration, for “IT IS FINISHED.” One last interaction with Matt and I witnessed his might, as I encouraged him to continue to hold up the bloodstained banner during his courageous fight. Unable to say much with tears blurring his sight, he turned towards me before I left somehow finding the strength to say, ”Alright.” That’s the Matt I know, when it came to his faith he would not break nor bend, I know for us this is a tough lost, but for heaven this is a win. So I’ll remind you of Matt Cappotelli’s word “[I’m] Alright” yet again, as he prepare for life in eternity, it’s the beginning not the end. -Elijah Burke

I'm doing autographs at a convention in NY when guess who's signing next to Pope? You got it, the man himself, Vader. It was the first time that I would have the honor of meeting "Mr. White Castle of Fear." I wondered if the kid inside of me would to come to the surface, was I gonna stay in my bubble and try not look at the 3-Time WCW World Champion due to all the traumatic scenes of brutality witnessed while nearly crippling Cactus Jack or the horror stories that's been told throughout the industry? No, not at all. I didn't have to worry about any of that because as soon as I got to my table, the legend STOOD UP and hugged Pope. (And thankfully he didn't smell like his gear that so many have recalled during his ring days). We talked, chatted it up and laughed the entire time. I thought to myself, "Wow, this man is a big teddy bear." He was too, at least in my interaction with him. 
Vader will arguably go down as one of the top 5 big men in wrestling history. It's always sad to look at some of the amazing performers who have given their lives and body to our business, had these amazing HOF careers, and for whatever reason have to go into WWE's HOF posthumously. 
My thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends and all who loved Leon "Vader" White. ~PHS

Last night at @few_survive I had one of the hardest fought matches in my career with my partner @showtimejbcool against @WWE Legends "The Headbangers." We got our butts kicked, but so did they and we all have the scars to prove it. However, aside from competition it's moments like this, reuniting with my good friend Vickie Guerrero that makes the pain all worth while.~PHS

What a goof!!! I almost forgot to mention how great it was running into @therock again @wwe Smackdown Live. As you can see he was surprised to see me as well. I didn't imagine that I'd be physically bigger than him but as I understand he's slimming for a new movie role. Nonetheless anytime you have your picture taken with greatness you must share it with the world. ~PHS
