    poll should be: worst video ever – 2g1c or hogan sex tape

      lol, no kidding!

    Do yourself and wrestling fans a favor Leavine, and just quit wrestling!  Silent Rage, what a joke!  I know alot of people liked Luke from TE, but I liked Jeremiah.  Either one of them would have been a MUCH better choice as winner for TE. Both of them had charisma, and better skills in the ring.

      I liked both Luke and Jeremiah, I wouldn’t have complained if either of them had won. They were both great and had a great personality. But Leavine, he was a joke. WWE had a good chance to select a winner that could reach somewhere in WWE (Luke or Jeremiah) but they didn’t. They wanted a big guy Silent Rage, one of the biggest jokes on TE. I wonder what Booker T, Trish, Bill and Steve have to say about this? Especially after they claim he had “IT” to be a WWE Superstar. 

      • Jmc60

        Andy is a friggin joke it was obvious Luke was the choice though jerimiah was great too

    • fatneal

       luke had the “it” factor already but the problem with him is he was just like the typical douchey heel personas we see in wwe already…jeremiah had the “it” factor but was a super noob….down the line i could see both in the industry

    • pwnez

      I prefered Luke over Jeremiah only because Luke seemed to have more personality and charisma. I think if Jeremiah was given a fair shake along with Luke they would have done alright. Luke’s a much better version of the Miz; he has decent talking/trash talking skills from what i’ve heard and his wrestling was at least decent. With more training he would have gotten better. 

      Andy didn’t have the “It” factor that WWE apparently looks for. He had the tall size which means nothing. His wrestling was way below average, he looked funny as hell when he had his mad face on and he didn’t have much charisma at all. Oh, and his talking skills weren’t too good either. With more training…alot more training I think he’d do alright but he has a long way to go. It’s ashame, the last season of Tough Enough, which IMO was good, was a waste of time.

    • Tlsxoxo

      Well put. Andy you SUCK ! Call it a career. I remember when he won on RAW and he was studdering so bad Vince jerked the mic from him.

    • Your momma

      Is everyone just gonna forget Martin? He won quite a few weeks in a row then had to quick because of injury, he was a skilled competitor. Luke was my second pick to win it. And I heard Jeremiah was an asshole to everybody and thought he was doing everyone a favor by being there… And that wont get you far in the business, any body remember Teddy Hart? He was released for having attitude problems backstage and Jeremiah may as well have become that same thing.

      • http://SEScoops.com/ siberian_skies

        I did like Martin.  Just kind of forgot about him after he got hurt.  Didn’t DeMott like and back him?

    • CleverNameTaken

      I was more partial to M-Dogg myself.  Obviously, he could out-wrestle any contestant on that show by miles, but of course Vince got his oh-so-predictable hardon for the big guys.  Matt also wouldn’t have wasted his opportunity by using drugs; he’s straight edge.

    I agree with all the comments,don’t u think that in this new error of “people power ” a great concept wud be having a tough enough style show mixed in with like a American idol type show where it’s live and all the wanabe have to wrestle a super star and each week the public vote one off,just think that wud be cool

    • http://SEScoops.com/ siberian_skies

      I like your idea.

      problem isnt tna doing a fight night just like your concept

        Pssh. We wouldn’t know. No one watches TNA. =P

  • wwetnadudez

    I feel like Martin or Jeremiah could have done fine in the WWE, both looked kinda generic but Jeremiah could have passed as the country boy, especially since he is one.

    • http://SEScoops.com/ siberian_skies

      Remember when his teeth fell out, lol. That guy was just fun, like the type of person you’d want to hang out with.

  • Hobo With A Shotgun

    Silent Rage is no more 

    • http://SEScoops.com/ siberian_skies

      Silent Rage never was, lol.

    Big Rigg should of been the big winner of TE. He grew the most, had the most heart and showed that he cared. I know Jeremiah comes across as nothing but a reality show talent. Then again so was The Miz. I have known Jeremiah for a few years now and he is a good down home kid that plays the part that is given to him by the producers very well. As for him ever being in the WWE. As Good Ole J.R. says. “Never say never.” However I really think that is one bridge Big Rigg burnt beyond recognition.

  • pwnez

    You have to catch the fans interest from the start so starting off with the contract signing is good. As for Leavine, yes, MUCH NEEDED experience and training is needed.

    Congrats on not being released once but twice….Matt Cross should have won tough enough. That is why no tough enough this year because SCSA was a dumbass

    • http://www.twitter.com/SouthKidd803 SavageBomber

      You do know it wasn’t Stone Cold’s decision who won right? Tough Enough, like any other reality show (or even WWE show for that matter) is scripted. The talents were real so what you saw is what you got, but as far as the selection of who wins and who doesn’t, it was predetermined by the boss man, Vincent.

  • Cappa37

    Is it just me or has Dolph Zigger gone stale? I donno, I used to get really excited for segments with him thinking “oh yea, this guy is the future.” But now it’s all just meh. Maybe it’s b/c of the return of Lesnar & Y2J coupled with the rise of Daniel Bryan that has just kind of put him on the back burner. Meaning… it’s a lot easier to shine when ur competing against just Cena, Orton & Punk for the spot light. or maybe it’s the booking…

    • Heel4Life

      I agree 100%

  • http://twitter.com/dansingsbuzz Daniel

    Did it ever occur that Jericho can do both the tour and wrestle just mondays and sundays?

  • Abz

    looks like the silent gay finally realised how much he sucks

  • Zach Gowens Leg

    Skidmark should have won. 

  • http://SEScoops.com/ siberian_skies

    @Zach Gowens Leg

    Skidmark was worse than Silent Rage.

    • Zach Gowens Leg

      It was a joke. But thanks for your input.

  • http://SEScoops.com/ siberian_skies

    @Zach Gowens Leg

    Gotcha.  You might say something next time about it being a joke.  Looking back, I guess I should’ve caught that one.
