Shawn Michaels recently popped up on WWE television again, but it wasn’t to announce he would be wrestling AJ Styles at the Royal Rumble. It was to … promote his new Christian comedy movie, The Resurrection of Gavin Stone. Anyway, Michaels is still hard at work on promoting that movie, and last week, he was a special guest at Liberty University’s Convocation, which is touted as being “North America’s largest weekly gathering of Christian students.” He was there to talk about Gavin Stone as part of Liberty University’s big kickoff event for the new semester.

A-Sides with Jon Chattman: Rated-R Superstar Adam Copeland Gets G-Rated with "Bookaboo"
Huffington Post - over 1 year
This wreaks of awesomeness. Amazon just launched a new "Original Kids" series last week called Bookaboo, and all signs point to it becoming the new Reading Rainbow. The series focuses on a rock-star puppy named Bookaboo. The drummer tours the world with his band, but can't play without a story a day read by a different celeb each time out. Paula Abdul, Emily Van Camp, and wrestler-turned-actor Adam Copeland (formerly Edge in the WWE) are among the talents who appear on respective episodes. We caught up with Copeland recently, and asked him to weigh in on the show, his acting career, and the state of professional wrestling. Read on! (Get it?) What was the initial attraction to Bookaboo? For me, this was a no brainer. It involves children, a rock n' roll drumming dog who needs a book read to him, and promotes parental reading and quality time with your children. Sold. It's been compared to Reading Rainbow. What were your go-to shows as a kid? I grew up in Southern...

Yahoo News - over 1 year
Back in the early 2010s, TNA Impact Wrestling thought it’d be great multimedia cross-promotion to put as many of its stars as possible into country music videos. Cowboy James Storm had ‘Longnecks & Rednecks’, Mickie James had a full-on country music career featuring videos starring Magnus, and so on. If you look hard enough, there was probably a Lady Antebellum video starring Garett Bischoff.

Preview for the January 23, 2014 episode of TNA Impact: Exodus, Chapter 2
Cageside Seats - about 4 years
Is tonight Sting's last hurrah in the company he's been with for nearly as long as WCW? Will we see The American Wolves wrestle? How bad will the Velvet Sky in a Cage match be? Forgetting stealing it, can Kurt Angle and Bobby Roode save the show? Previously on Impact Wrestling The not-a-pay-per-view (PPV)-but-still-special-because-it's-live-and-not-in-Orlando edition of Genesis had wrestling fans buzzing a bit...so they opened the show with fifteen minutes of Magnus and Dixie Carter talking. The champ was okay, and might be just fine with a supported cast that had more Rockstar Spud and less Dixie. But that's not what he's got, and what we got out of this was an unbilled six-on-six inter-gender tag team match. Which was good because Samoa Joe got to kill a bunch of people. Then, X-Division champ Austin Aries and Chris Sabin had a contest to see who could say the most sexist and/or degrading thing about Velvet Sky to her face. I think Aries won, but whoever boo...

Preview for the August 22, 2013 episode of TNA Impact: The Over-the-Hill Gang
Cageside Seats - over 4 years
Previously on Impact Wrestling Viewer discretion was advised, although unless you faint at the sight of spilled Appletini, I'm not sure what there was to be discerning about. Other than the usual TNA-ness of it all. The new alliance between Bobby Roode and Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian of Bad Influence paid immediate dividends, largely due to the aforementioned apple-flavored cocktail. Jeff Hardy was cheated out of 20 Bound for Glory (BFG) series points when Kaz hit him with the drink, then the Fallen Angel threw it on Magnus to allow Roode to put him through a table for 20 of his own. Kurt Angle was written off of Impact the right way, and Dixie Carter's announcement of that set-up the main throughline for the show - how will the Main Event Mafia (MEM) ever manage to fight off those scary Aces and Eights men without our Olympic hero? No one has been able to tell me what happened to Velvet Sky, but the Knockouts tornado tag became a three-way hardcore...

Preview for the August 1, 2013 episode of TNA Impact: #OffTheHook
Cageside Seats - over 4 years
Previously on Impact Wrestling Kurt Angle and Sting of the Main Event Mafia (MEM) welcomed new TNA World champion Chris Sabin to the show. Sabin challenged the winner of the scheduled Ultimate X match for his old X Division belt to a "Champion vs. Champion" match on tonight's show. Former world titleholder (but still President of Aces and Eights) Bully Ray demanded that his belt be returned to him by the end of the night, or he'd take it out on TNA like real bikers do - with THE LAW! Each of the Ultimate X participants got a hype video, but in addition to being the only guy under contract, Manik's was just a little bit cooler. Guess who won? It was a well-worked, entertaining match that should have been the main event. Bound for Glory series action abounded as Christopher Daniels (21 points), Mr. Anderson (14 points) and AJ Styles (22 points) all won their matches. Mickie James retained her Knockouts title in a decent match with Gail Kim that wasn't quite as go...
