Tough Enough is Officially Back. You Have Been Warned.

Do you have a hard time sitting through two hours of WWE programming on Monday night? If so you’ll be happy to hear that WWE is giving you an additional hour starting at 8:00. Yes that’s right, WWE Tough Enough is back starting in April. According to this link from WWE.com. The show will start after Raw that night and then settle in at 8:00 pm.

“WWE Tough Enough” will premiere at 11/10 p.m. CT the day after WrestleMania XXVII and immediately following USA’s ratings juggernaut Monday Night Raw. It will then move to its regularly scheduled slot, Mondays at 8/7 p.m. CT, starting on April 11th.

Bringing back Tough Enough is a fine idea as along as they copy the entire structure of The Ultimate Fighter. They can use two injured wrestlers as coaches and give them an excuse to be off of live events and television in the meantime. It also means exposure fo the business but then it seems Kevin Dunn has this covered.

The diverse group of men and women will live and train together in a house in Los Angeles. To see who has what it takes to be the next WWE Superstar or Diva, the contestants will battle it out each week in a series of unique challenges designed to test for such characteristics as showmanship, creativity, athleticism and desire, just to name a few.

So here’s the skinny. This show is going to suck like NXT but it will be on at a much more important spot than NXT ever had. There is no reason to have faith that WWE will actually give us a compelling show. They had the chance with NXT and it is a circus sideshow.  So what possible reason could there be that this show will be watchable? Please, anyone? One?

I thought so. -Jeremy
