– The Miami Herald spoke with WWE Hall of Famer Ricky Steamboat this week to promote WrestleMania 28. Steamboat says that he is at about 80% after recovering from a brain aneurysm almost two years ago. Steamboat still helps out at WWE developmental but doctors don’t want him getting in the ring so he works with the talents in other ways.
– The Herald also spoke with WWE Tough Enough Winner Andy Leavine, now known as Kevin Hackman. Andy talked about his progress:
“It has been going good. It’s a daily process. You have to get better every day. I try not to look too far ahead because if you do, you sort of lose track of where you are currently. I am just working hard and getting better. I have a heck of a lot of guys that I look up to and try to model myself, hard work wise, after. There are a lot of hard working guys down here. Leo Kruger, who is a former two-time FCW heavyweight champ, has helped me out a lot. Eli Cottonwood, Husky Harris, Big E Langston and others have helped me out a lot on my road.”
