One more round? WWE has been around for a very long time now and the company has done a lot of things over its history. Some of these things have been more popular than others, but a few of them have been very memorable. That is not necessarily a good thing, but now it seems that WWE might be bringing back one of its older concepts for another try after a good many years.
According to Fightful, on November 30, WWE filed a trademark application for Tough Enough. This could mean a return of the competition series, though WWE has not yet made any announcement. Tough Enough originally aired in 2001 and six seasons have been held, with the most recent taking place in 2015. Neither of the most recent winners, Sara Lee and Josh Bredl, ever wrestled a match on the main roster.
There have been some moments on Tough Enough. Check out what has happened there before:
Opinion: Forgive me for not exactly jumping for joy at the idea of another Tough Enough, but it isn’t like there is a ton of success for the winners over the years. WWE will probably get some new hands out of it, but those people aren’t going to make an impact for several years at least. If WWE wants this to make much of a difference, get a bunch of independent wrestlers or un-debuted NXT stars and let them compete instead. Cut out a bunch of the wait time and this might go better, but otherwise, it’s not something that is going to do much good in the long term.
Do you want Tough Enough to return? Who is the best name to ever come out of it? Let us know in the comments below.
