What happens when you go undercover to try out for a big break as a WWE Superstar, and end up actually crushing it? Our training director, Sean Hyson, recently found out. Not only did he spend three days in the ring with William Regal and a slew of other professional trainers, he also got a chance to shoot a promo reel using his alternate persona “Mr. Cool.” This is just aquick glimpse into the experience.

The video above is part of Sean’s feature story “Learning the Ropes” in the November 2014 issue of Muscle & Fitness, where he details the entire experience, offers a workout he used to get ready, and shows you what it takes to meet the demands of the biggest behemoth in sports entertainment.

That’s not it, either. The WWE just dropped a video series, article and gallery showing the whole spectacle from their perspective.
