http://www.gearlive.com - 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.
We talk to Buddy about his career, what it takes to make it in the pro wrestling industry, training students, and more. We also chat with one of his trainees and get a feel for how difficult it all is. And yes, I get in the ring and give you a glimpse at my skills. After years and years of people watching my tech reviews and asking to see me in the wrestling ring, here you go. It's not quite the return of "Simply The Best" Andru Edwards (or "The Shooter" Andru Edwards,) but hey, I can still hold my own. Natural athlete and all that. You know. Represent.

Ford invited me to be an agent for the Fiesta Movement. They've provided me with a 2014 Ford Fiesta, and they're covering gas, insurance, and administrative costs for the duration of the Movement. They know what it's good for.
