What another great edition of IN THE ROOM we had tonight, as Brady Hicks, Derrick McDonald, and Ray Bogusz were joined by indie sensation and (no doubt) future star of the business Tatevik The Gamer and her business partner Steve Stasiak. Both are awesome people inside and out of the ring, and of course Tatevik is pretty easy on the eyes as well! Find out right from the future Diva herself what it’s like to be regarded as “just another pretty face,” the world of competing in martial arts, plus acting, dancing, and so much more. Plus, open lines for two hours as Brady and the gang talk WWE Extreme Rules, HHH vs. Joe Hennig, ethnic stereotypes in wrestling, and WWE’s scrapped plans for several DVDs. All that, plus, say it with me Cujo, so … much … more! Thanks as always for the support!

Wow … just wow. This week IN THE ROOM, Brady Hicks is joined by Stacy “The Kat” Carter (excerpts below), as she updates the fans on Jerry Lawler‘s health situation. The gang also welcomes former ECW star Tony Mamaluke, as he runs down a fantastic career that spanned ECW, WWE, WCW, and TNA. What are Tony’s thoughts on his extreme legacy, being a “comedy” guy, extreme reunions, and being a part of the East Coast Wrestling Association (ECWA), where he will make his debut this Saturday, September 15th at the ECWA 45th Anniversary Show in Newark, Delaware. Plus, Northeast Wrestling (NEW) announcer – and Brady’s PWI colleague – Gerry Strauss hops IN THE ROOM to talk about NEW’s “Wrestling Under the Stars” show, September 15th in Fishkill, New York … a show that will feature Hulk Hogan! In addition, Brady and the gang offer up the WWE Night of Champions pay-per-view predictions, and so … much … more. Thanks, as always, for the support!
But before any of that, though, Brady, Derrick McDonald, Mike Bessler, and Ray Bogusz are joined IN THE ROOM by a good friend of the show, Stacy “The Kat” Carter. Carter is a former WWE Diva, and the ex-wife and good friend of Jerry “The King Lawler … which gives her a very good perspective on the Lawler nightmare from Raw this week. Stacy hopped on the phone with Jerry’s girlfriend tonight … then called IN THE ROOM to update the fans on how he is doing. Excerpts below:
On Jerry Lawler’s Condition:
“Right now he’s stable, being responsive with a tube down his throat. He’s squeezing people’s hands, nodding his head. He can point out where he’s hurting, stuff like that. The next step is to wait for the test results to comeback tomorrow, the scan on his brain to see what – if any – brain damage he may or may not have. And that’s pretty much it. He’s still critical but stable. He’s strong and he’s stubborn, so if anybody can pull through its him.”
On The Amount of Time it Took for CPR to Work:
“WWE’s doctor was there when Jerry collapsed and fell out of his chair. He started CPR. From what I’ve been told is Jerry did not regain consciousness there. They did revive him there, but it took a long time – 15 minutes. It took a long time to bring him back. But he’s back now, he’s lightly sedated, and they’re taking him off the ventilator. He’s not in the heavy sedation that they had him in.”
On it Happening on LIVE TV:
“Jerry would be dead right now if it did not happen where it happened. Stuff like that just keeps running through my brain. Jerry normally grabs something – some food – on the way back to the hotel … fast food or if the bar is open, and he eats, then he’s there by himself. But this could have happened just two or three hours later and nobody would have been there with him and he wouldn’t be here right now. Or he could have been driving to the arena or flying to Montreal. If it had to happen, I’m very thankful that it did there.”
This week, Brady Hicks and the gang are very proud to present a very special “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” edition of IN THE ROOM, featuring a sitdown with TNA’s Women’s Knockouts Champion Brooke Tessmacher, plus indie stars Missy Sampson (to plug her upcoming title defense for World Professional Wrestling), Sienna DuVall, and Kimber Lee. It’s a unique opportunity to hear from four distinct voices all trying to carve their own niche in a very strange women’s wrestling landscape. These four gals were fantastic and we wish them nothing but the best! Plus, Brady, Anthony Sarlo, and Derrick McDonald talk WWE SummerSlam and Raw, what worked, and a whole lot of what didn’t work, plus AJ’s foot comment, SummerSlam memories, fast food, and so … much … more. Thanks, as always, for the support!
This week, Brady Hicks is joined IN THE ROOM by a number of very special guests for a packed, extra-long, controversial episode. First up, Vinny DiBenedetto from Wrestlers Rescue hops on to to talk about Kamala’s issues with the organization, in an attempt to clear the group’s name. Plus, Shannon Hunter, the owner of World Professional Wrestling checks in to talk about Summer Extravaganza IX in Reading, PA, September 15th. Finally, good friend of the show Aaron Weiss steps IN THE ROOM to talk about his massive wrestling video library, recently sold to former TNA executive Scott D’Amore. All that, plus tons of TNA and WWE talk, including SummerSlam, AJ as GM, a healthy debate about Raw being three hours (hint: Brady LIKES it), and some more of what TNA is doing right. All that, and so … much … more. Thanks, as always, for the support, guysssssss n girlsssssss!
This week, another landmark edition of IN THE ROOM as Pro Wrestling Illustrated contributing writer Brady Hicks, with Derrick McDonald, welcome former TNA valet – and current independent wrestling sensation – Santana Garrett on the show. Garrett, for those who are unfamiliar, is the woman from Orlando Jordan’s threesome group down in TNA in 2010. Not only that, however, but she is a second-generation star who has been tearing up the independent wrestling scene in Florida and the Midwest, most recently even appearing for the new SHINE promotion on iPPV. Find out what this trainee of Larry Zbyszko and Scott Hall has to say about being a woman in the business, trying to catch a break, touring with TNA, and getting to wrestle Sara Del Ray, MsChief, and Mercedes Martinez despite her still-young career. Plus, Brady and Derrick tackle what they liked (and didn’t) about the 1,000th eppy of Raw. All that and so … much … more. Thanks, as always, for the support!
