Bleeding Edge TV 489: Fiesta Movement Pro Wrestling 101

Okay, if you don't know, I used to be a pro wrestler. That's right, I'd put my tights on every week, step through the curtain, and enter a 20 x 20 wrestling ring to entertain a crowd of people, and I loved it. That was a long time ago, and now I bring you the hottest news in the consumer electronics world, as you know.

However, now that I am a Ford #FiestaMovement agent, you should expect to see something a bit more unique here on my channel each month. I'll be doing some pretty unique missions as part of the Fiesta Movement, using the Fiesta ST that was given to me for the duration of the Movement to bring you some cool stuff. This month? I'm bringing you into the world of professional wrestling as part of the June #Fitness theme.

Why pro wrestling? Well, I didn't want another agent to grab this mission and turn it into a comedy act! I saw this as an opportunity to educate the masses about this truly unique artform. I head to the Buddy Wayne pro wrestling training facility to chat about what it takes to become a professional wrestler. Buddy should know. After all, at just 5' 6", he has made a career in the land of the giants, having wrestling for both WWE (formerly WWF or the World Wrestling Federation) and WCW (World Championship Wrestling.) In wrestling, you only look as good as your opponent allows you to look, and Buddy was able to make his opponents look great for 12 years.

VIDEO: Lea Michele Talks Broadway … Ten Years Before Glee

Lea Michele, 12, radiated star power long before millions heard her voice on FOX’s hit Glee. In the video above, Michele is being interviewed for a documentary later picked up by MTV’s The Seven.

Joaquin Phoenix: P. Diddy, Others in on the Documentary Hoax

Joaquin Phoenix’s I’m Still Here is still making waves, and most movie reviewers are still scratching their heads. Phoenix scored plenty of huge headlines when he purportedly walked away from his acting career to pursue rap, but it was his David Letterman appearance that really got people talking.

Ben Stiller famously impersonated Phoenix at the Oscars, appearing on stage in a full beard to poke fun at Joaquin’s rugged look. But Phoenix says that Stiller, along with several others who appeared in the pseudo-documentary, was in on the joke.

Review: World of Jenks Sneak Peek

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Reality, Cable, MTV, Gossip, Video,


If you kept your channel tuned to after the VMAs (which ran long, big shocker), you saw the premiere of the sneak peek of World of Jenks, which celebrates its official premiere on Monday night. Andrew Jenks is a buzzworthy young filmmaker who is best-known for his Room 335 project, in which he moved into an assisted living facility.

The premise behind World of Jenks is simple: the filmmaker will move in with interesting individuals for one week and learn about their lives. He is no mere fly on the wall, however. Jenks asks questions, gets answers and explores each person’s background.

In the sneak peek episode, Jenks moved in with rapper Maino, who did hard time for kidnapping. Maino had only two conditions for the filmmaker: “No cryin’, no bitchin’.” Maino meant what he said. He is a hard-core partier. As he explained to Jenks, “I want to wake up almost dead.” And that takes a lot of partying.

Brad Pitt Wants Death Penalty For Oil Spill Executives

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Rants,

Brad Pitt in New OrleansEnvironmentally-conscious has hinted the executives responsible for the Gulf of Mexico oil spill deserve the death penalty.

The star speaks out against those behind the oil rig explosion in April - which caused the worst environmental disaster in US history with millions of gallons of oil flooding into the sea - in a new documentary If God is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise.

“I was never for the death penalty before - I am willing to look at it again,” Brad said of the people responsible for the disaster.

The oil spill, which happened after an explosion on the BP operated Deepwater Horizon rig, resulted in the decimation of wildlife and habitat of marine and coastal animals, as well as loss of livelihood for many fishermen and other people who depend of the area for work. As yet the root cause of the disaster remains unconfirmed.

Brad’s comments are at the end of the documentary, filmed by , about the effects of Hurricane Katrina on the city of New Orleans, Louisiana - the closest major US city to the Deepwater rig - five years after the hurricane devastated the city, leaving 80 per cent of it waterlogged. Brad spearheaded the Make it Right project after the natural disaster, which built 150 affordable and sustainable homes in one of the areas of New Orleans that was worst hit.
