I project manage and produce a lot of video content for the WWE magazine APP. This is one of my favorite videos so far. I am clearly a child of the Sesame Street generation.
The wrestler is Fandango, a flamboyant and sultry ballroom dancer. The gimmick is a bit over the top to begin with so why not just go with it and have some fun! None of us could keep a straight face during this shoot. Fandango really brought ‘it’. All of it.
Thanks to the YouTube commenters who introduced me to the term, corpsing. It’s the best part of the video. It was a risk putting it in, but it’s a good payoff.
