The story revolves around the life of Chris Samuels, a professional wrestler who retires from wrestling due to an injury. After retiring wrestling, he becomes a pastor and moves to a small town in Michigan with his wife Michelle and daughter. However, Chris feels that his current job as a pastor isn't enough to bring changes to the community. He begins to contemplate a way to make a significant impact.

After a robbery in the church, Chris decides to use his wrestling persona to try and make a difference in the community. He creates a superhero persona, The Masked Saint, who fights crime and brings justice to the town in his own way.
