In 2001, WWE started airing Tough Enough on MTV and it was “professional wrestling reality television program produced by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and MTV wherein participants underwent professional wrestling training and competed for a contract with WWE. There were two winners per season for the first three seasons but only a single winner for the fourth season. All three televised seasons aired on MTV. A fourth competition was held in 2004, but was integrated into UPN‘s SmackDown!.” (Wikipedia.org). I was a huge fan of Tough Enough and hoped that the NXT show would be a new version of it and sadly it has not been.
Now it seems as if USA and WWE are keen to bring Tough Enough back.
