JOHN HENRY 🚂🔨💪🏾 Awesome response (and highly curious because the majority of you commented that you don’t know who John is) to my announcement of our ground breaking partnership with NETFLIX to bring the legend of JOHN HENRY to life. JOHN HENRY is an African American folklore legend who I grew up with. I’m proud to take on the role and equally excited to introduce JOHN HENRY’S story to homes & families all around the world 🌎 John was one bad dude. My kinda man who made decisions based on his gut and instinct. The thing that I loved as a kid and I appreciate more as a man — is that John also had basic core values that speak directly to my DNA. In today’s cynical, divisive, noisy times — JOHN HENRY’S values, strength, morals and heart, all matter today more than ever. Families all around the world are gonna love John Henry’s story. I’m grateful to be the one to tell it. And to quote my @netflix partners — Daddy’s gotta go to work 😉💪🏾🌎🔨

‘Celtic Warrior Workouts’ w/ Cesaro & Funko Pop

SheamusCeltic Warrior Workouts YouTube channel posted the following video on-line:

WWE Superstar Sheamus aka The Celtic Warrior here… The Bar are big time Pop Culture fans so when I got the chance to workout at Funko Pop HQ in Everett Washington, I of course brought my Tag Team partner Cesaro along for the ride. And the swag. Ahem.

But to beat the office rush we had to be at Funko HQ gym at 6.30am to train with Tim & Des in a toy-themed Team Challenge workout designed by the man, Joshy G. To be honest, the smash and grab we did in the Funko store was workout enough but we got it done anyway… coz we always… Brave Change.
