WWE Unhappy With Tough Enough Casting

Posted by Brad Davis February 25, 2011 3 Comments

– WWE was said to be unhappy with the first batch of Tough Enough contestants that were chosen by Shed Media and the USA Network.

Specifically, WWE reportedly did not like how so many well-known independent wrestlers were selected.

The people who were in charge of casting were replaced by a guy who has previously worked closely with WWE producer Kevin Dunn.

— As noted yesterday, indy star Matt Cross is reportedly a contestant on the new WWE Tough Enough.

Former WWE star Val Venis wrote the following on Twitter yesterday, giving his stamp of approval: “Congrats to Matt Cross on being part of the cast of tough enough. The M-Dogg is amazing and should be a fav to win the whole damn show!”

      No surprise that WWE doesn’t like the cast. They have this desire to train their own guys from the bottom up, even though everyone they train tends to suck. They probably don’t want people to see just how much better the indy guys are compared to their own crop.

      Indeed. It was obvious they’re not looking for talent when Austin Aries was rejected.

      This is simply retarded. If WWE isn’t happy with the cast, DON’T DO THE SHOW. I’d much rather see a 3rd hour of RAW each week than another crappy Tough Enough season.
