With the reality series Tough Enough returning to the USA Network this summer, the WWE has officially begun looking for competitors on the show.
Here is the press release:
STAMFORD, Conn., April 20, 2015 – Beginning today, WWE invites anyone from around the world who believes they have what it takes to be the next WWE Superstar or Diva, to submit a video at WWEToughEnough.com to be considered for the upcoming reality competition series, WWE Tough Enough. The series premieres on Tuesday, June 23 at 8/7c on USA Network in a reimagined format with live elements.
“WWE Tough Enough is an opportunity for anyone who has ever dreamed of becoming a WWE Superstar or Diva,” said Paul “Triple H” Levesque, WWE Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative. “WWE Superstars and Divas are dynamic entertainers who possess a unique combination of athleticism and charisma. We can’t wait to see who will emerge from this competition to earn a place alongside our elite performers.”
This season of WWE Tough Enough will combine the can’t-miss excitement of live television with reality-show drama as 10 men and five women vie for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become a WWE Superstar or Diva. By the end of the season, one man and one woman will be crowned “Tough Enough” and will each earn a WWE contract.
Here is Triple H talking about the show which he says will have a “social engaging, re-imagined format”.
“This season of Tough Enough will combine the can’t miss excitement of live television plus reality show drama as ten men and five women compete for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become a WWE superstar or diva,” says Triple H.
He goes on to say that there will be two winners, one man and one woman.
There had been some talk that some of the current talent at NXT would be competing on the show but that does not seem to be the case.
Don’t be surprised if Triple H is announced as the trainer for the show tonight on Raw with Steve Austin not being a part of it.
