WWE Tough Enough Returning To TV
After originally being planned for the Network last year, WWE have now confirmed that the Tough Enough reality show will be returning to the USA Network:
USA Network President Chris McCumber has announced that groundbreaking WWE reality series “Tough Enough” will be returning to television on USA Network.
“I am pleased to announce that USA is bringing back ‘Tough Enough,’ the action-packed competition reality show from the ratings juggernaut, WWE,” McCumber said in a speech today during the Television Critics Association winter press tour. “The show will have a completely new format, with live elements that will truly make this event television.”
McCumber continued, “After signing another multi-year deal for Raw and SmackDown, this is the perfect time to bring back the series and capitalize on the enormous audience appeal of sports-entertainment.”
Kevin Nash Battery Charges Dropped
Kevin Nash revealed on Twitter that charges filed after the incident with his son over the holidays have been dropped.
Because Nash was under a WWE Legend’s deal he was the first employee to fall foul of the new domestic violence policy. This states that whenever charges for domestic violence are filed, the talent in question is automatically suspended. Should the talent be convicted they are fired, but if found innocent or if the charges are dropped the contract reverts to normal.
Nash mentioned earlier in the week that he doesn’t see himself on WWE TV ever again, but that may have been before who knew the charges would be dropped.
Steph Explains Why Elimination Chamber Was Dropped
In a recent interview with the Nerdist Stephanie McMahon explained why the Elimination Chamber PPV has been dropped.
She said it has been increasingly difficult to hang the 10 tonne structure above the ring because a lot of modern arenas have “big beautiful displays,” and it’s especially difficult with score boards.
It may be that the match returns as and when it works best, rather than being set in stone once a year before Wrestlemania.
