The Sportsman Channel sent out the following press release:
Michaels’ First Appearance on TV Since Retiring in March; Wife Rebecca Joins Him Hunting
New Berlin, WI – August 3, 2010 – Hunting gear, shooting birds and…wrestling? That’s what you’ll see on this week’s episode of The Experience with Weston and Jodi Clark as the couple hosts recently retired WWE star, Shawn Michaels, and his wife, Rebecca. The Experience with Weston and Jodi Clark airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. EST, with re-airs on Thursdays at 12 a.m. and Sundays at 4 p.m. on Sportsman Channel.
The Clarks said they filmed a total of three episodes with Shawn and Rebecca at the Venado Creek Ranch in Texas this past February. And what makes this show so special is that it is Shawn’s first time back on the screen since retiring in March. “The episodes will feature Shawn and Rebecca talking about their hunting experiences and viewers will get to see how Shawn enjoys himself in the outdoors,” said co-host of The Experience, Weston Clark. “Shawn is an enthusiastic and passionate person; I think viewers will see that enthusiasm come across when he and Rebecca talk about some of their dream hunts as well.”
The Experience with Weston and Jodi Clark sets out to surprise our nation’s heroes on every episode with a dream hunting trip, which they find by asking viewers to nominate their hero. This one-of-a-kind show goes “behind the hunt” to the human side of the story to reveal how we all share a common bond through the outdoors.
In the episode with Michael’s, viewers will be introduced to Assistant Chief of Police Tim Schnieder from Plainview, Minn. who recently lost his eight-year-old son to cancer. On Tim’s first time out in the woods with The Experience, he came up empty handed. So the Clarks bring him out again, but this time with his favorite wrestler, Shawn Michaels. “When Tim saw Shawn, he was just shocked – he couldn’t believe he was hunting with this wrestling icon,” said Clark.
Viewers will have to stay tune to the episode to see if Shawn and the Police Chief get their bucks!
