The current season of “WWE Tough Enough” hasn’t exactly been well-received by most wrestling fans. The show has received criticism for its format, focused largely around social media interaction and popularity rather than the abilities of the competitors, as was the case for Season 5 of the show. It also has not been well-regarded by WWE talent, such as WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins.

In a recent interview, Rollins said the show was good for the WWE brand, but the competitors had no idea what they were stepping into:

“But at the same time you’ve got to understand that’s not all that it takes, you don’t just get to be on a reality gameshow and all of a sudden you’re just a top star in 12 weeks. They’re going to have to put in a lot of time, and a lot of hard work, and they’re going to have to sacrifice a lot of relationships, they’re going to be injured often, it’s going to take a toll on them physically and emotionally that they’re not prepared for and I think it will be very interesting to see who comes out of ‘Tough Enough,’ who really is ‘Tough Enough’ I guess when you look at it. Who’s going to come out of it alive and who’s going to make a success out of themselves?”

In addition to Rollins’ comments, now, a WWE Hall of Famer has stepped out and spoken against the show.

Following Tuesday night’s episode, hardcore legend Mick Foley took to Twitter to trash the show and its elimination concept, saying he would no longer be watching the show. The tweets can be seen below:





The two winners of the show – one male and one female – will both receive one-year, $250,000 developmental contracts, far larger than what anyone else is making on the roster in NXT.
