Audio: Zach Gowen talks Hulk Hogan,Vince McMahon, Roddy Piper and More

May 31, 2013 - by Atlee Greene

We’re back with another edition of IN THE ROOM, this week featuring our very special guest and good friend of the show Zach Gowen of WWE fame. Gowen’s story is a truly remarkable one and anyone who is not familiar will definitely want to check it out. At just 8 years old, Tenacious Z lost his leg to cancer, then went on to have a distinguished career as a high-flying star! What was it like for Gowen to be in the ring with guys like Hulk Hogan, Roddy Piper, Vince McMahon, and Brock Lesnar less than a year into his career? What’s the story behind his awesome “Kicking it with the Kids” anti-bullying message? Plus, Zach’s experiences teaming with Gregory Iron to form “The Handicapped Heroes,” competing in New Moon Rising Wrestling, and so … much … more. Plus, Brady Hicks, Anthony Sarlo, and Ray Bogusz take more of a look at Curtis Axel, WWE Raw from last night, erotic fiction, and a truly memorable Bleacher Report article courtesy of Mike Bessler. It was a fun show. Thanks, as always, for the support!
