Former WWE star and Tough Enough winner Andy Leavine stepped IN THE ROOM with Brady Hicks this week to talk about the uber-frustrating politics of WWE, having “Stone Cold” Steve Austin ranting about him, relocating to Puerto Rico at John Lauranaitis’ advisement, how bad the indie scene is, and how he was totally unprepared to jump right onto TV when his hand was forced. Plus, Brady and the gang talk TNA. Assume TNA’s a sinking ship and you have a liferaft … who are you bringing with you and who are you letting sink? All that, and so … much … more. Thanks, as always, for the support!

Brady Hicks and Netter from DimpleDate.com talk dating, relationships, and sex.
