The Wrestling Observer is reporting that WWE Tough Enough winner Andy Leavine had heat with VP of Talent Relations Johnny "Ace" Laurinaitis following the season one TE finale on Raw a few weeks ago.
Laurinaitis was reportedly upset that Leavine did not sell the slap by Vince McMahon or the Stunner by Stone Cold Steve Austin long enough on TV and for the live crowd. For those who missed it, Leavine took the moves from both Vince and Austin, rolled out of the ring, then got up and headed to the back.
Leavine reportedly told officials backstage that he got up quickly because he knew R-Truth was on his way out to the ring next, and he wanted to hurry up and get to the back so as not to be in Truth’s way for his upcoming segment.
