Hosts: Dave LaGreca and Doug Mortman
Airs Mondays and Wednesdays on Sirius 126 and XM 243 from 2-4 EST
The Difference in Pay For Men and Women in TNA: "Wrestling does appear to be a man's sport and in true tradition, women are traditionally not paid as much as their male counterparts. It (the payscale) is out of whack. Thats why instead of staying, I think everyone should come to a happy workplace and not to poison or be a bad egg, just leave the scene altogether and find something else."
Working For Ring of Honor: "I'm not officially with the company yet, this is like a one night stand type of deal. I have a lot of unfinished business before I can officially join ROH and that is something that I am open to. They take wrestling here very serious.....I would definitely be interested."
Her Beef With Bubba the Love Sponge: "There are things that happened backstage that should remain backstage. That's why going on the program and speaking on what had happened, I shouldn't have done that. I should have just kept it backstage. What happens backstage remains backstage and thats how it should be.
"He took it out on the radio. That drew me out a bit and I should know better. I've been in this business, I know this business, I respect this business, he doesn't. People in our business can't allow other people who don't understand our business that because he wants to be a worker so bad and no one wants to play with him, people allow their friends to get away with things like that.
"The product definitely has changed, and since I am a wrestler, and this is pro wrestling for me, I took myself out of that particular product....of that equation, especially since it didn't make sense monetarily."
