An abandoned church in Llanera, Asturias was recently converted into a skate park and canvased by artist Okuda San Miguel. With the help of an online fundraising push and support from Red Bull, a collective lead by the “Church Brigade’ salvaged and transformed the space into one of the coolest spots to skate we’ve seen.
The church was originally designed by Manuel del Busto in 1912. Watch Okuda discuss the project and it’s inspirations below.

Taping His Fists Up And Threatening Shawn Michaels
The most infamous backstage story about Undertaker is always going to be the occasion he taped his fists up and threatened violence against Shawn Michaels.
Taker did this because he had got sick and tired of seeing Shawn mess around with WWF business. The Heartbreak Kid had pulled out of a planned loss to Bret Hart at WrestleMania 13 due to an injury (which some believe he faked), he later went on to ‘screw’ Bret Hart at Survivor Series 1997 in what was a shock to the entire locker room. By conspiring with Vince to change a result without his opposition knowing, Michaels had betrayed the entire locker room – Undertaker was legitimately furious.
When it came to WrestleMania 14 it was the turn of Steve Austin to get a run with the WWF title. Austin was the hottest thing going and a genuine shot for the WWF to become a financial success again. Would Michaels do the right thing and put the star over? Undertaker as locker room leader was taking no chances. He got in Michaels face and showed his fists, letting the egotistical star know that if he did anything other than put Austin over he would face the consequences.
