Former WWE creative team members Court Bauer and Dave Lagana (who currently works with Ring of Honor) have posted messages on Twitter questioning whether the revival of WWE Tough Enough will be successful. Bauer wrote on Twitter.com/CourtBauer:
“Glad WWE finally embracing reality TV (a decade late).. Tough Enough and reality is a proven GREAT vehicle to launch stars, BUT will WWE consistently commit to this new talent in long run? Skeptical.”
Lagana (@Lagana) responded to Bauer’s tweet with his own line of skepticism:
“‘He just doesn’t get it, boss’ Six words that have killed more careers before they could develop. Remember all the hype with NXT last year too? Will wait to see on execution.”
Lagana continued, “I look forward to Tough Enough, but more importantly look forward to the weeks and months after to see what they make of the talent from the show.
As we reported earlier, WWE and the USA Network announced today that the Tough Enough reality competition will be returning on April 4th (the night after WrestleMania) on the USA Network. Tough Enough will air for 10 weeks on Monday nights at 8 p.m. EST as a lead-in to WWE RAW.
