Wait, no divas this time? Those are the TE contestants that have been used the most so far (Nidia, Jackie, Linda Miles).

They've never said it on TV that I've noticed (though it's been kinda implied on TV and certiantly mentioned in the last half dozen TE threads), women aren't eligible; the Diva Search is for girls, the Tough Enough is for boys.

LIES. I can't believe we have to put up with him for weeks on end.

He starred in Battle Dome on UPN as Snake.
See, the problem is I don't remember anyone but T. Money from that show. Or blocked them out of my mind, I guess.

I'm waiting for the moment during Tough Enough where the guy who portrayed "Snake" states that the Battledome "invasion" angle they did for about five minutes in WCW was an eye-opening experience for him. I think he portrayed the biker character with the ridiculous mutton chops and white trash moustache...anyone know for sure?

As for the heights...well, did you see the requirements they had to progress in the competition? They might as well have just asked them to stand in front of Vince and selected them based on how much of a hard-on he had for their size.

The scariest aspect of this all, however, is that they're going to be fifteen minute segments each week just thrown into the middle of the show. Hell, they might as well start showing episodes of "Yes, Dear" during hour two of Smackdown if they're that eager to sabotage their own ratings.

Since I loathe any talent coming in with
their own hideous, unmarketable names
alone as their chief means of presentation,
I have invented some monikers to spruce
these kids up. Not technically fantasy booking,
is it? This post will make a grand total of
zero sense if you haven't read the profiles
on the WWE site, btw.

"Tarot" JOHN MEYER

Commands his own destiny, does he? Sounds like a tarot
card lovin' hippie. Have him decide which moves to use
via the consultation of his tarot deck.

"Tricky" NICK MITCHELL

Sells gym memberships? Why not turn him into a seedy
smooth-talker who sells people stuff they don't need
or could not possibly want unless fooled, like paying
him a premium to get the 3-minute Ron Simmons phone call.

"Unreal" MIKE MIZANIN

If he's been on 5 reality shows, it can easily be suggested
he's lost touch with reality itself. Have him talk to the
walls and bathroom facilities, the ringposts and the fans'
hats, always thinking a camera might be hidden somewhere.

CHRIS "Ding Dong" NAWROCKI

No thought went into this, really. I just always regretted
not seeing this WCW gimmick.

"Trust Fund" DANIEL PUDER

Come on, what student owns a print and marketing company? Have him forever on a diamond-studded cell phone seeking the council of Paris Hilton. "Paris, like, I don't wanna be in this first blood match,
like eeeeew!"

"R&R" RYAN REEVES

The double initial demands he be called R&R. Instead of "rest and
relaxation", though, it will be two different R words every week.
Tonight, it's "Rage and Retribution" and next week its
"state-Run and Regulated"...Err...I haven't thought
this one through.

"Doppelganger" DANIEL RODIMER

If he LOOKS like Jeremy Shockey from the NY Giants, he can claim to
be his exact double from another dimension. Or if that won't work,
he can claim to be a shape-shifter, always assuming other wrestlers
identities to get his foes into trouble. "OF COURSE I'M FRITZ VON
ERICH, BEATCH!"

"Poetic" JUSTICE SMITH

Like Heidenreich's gimmick, but with more emphasis on poetry
and less on sodomy.

People who jump from one reality show to the next need to be shipped off the planet.

Anyway, I may be in the minority, but I miss the first season or two of Tough Enough when you had fairly wimpy guys in their early 20's trying to make it. Now everyone in there is like a shootfighter or an indy wrestler or some giant bodybuilder. Not as interesting to me.

Still should be an entertaining show, though. I hope they give it at LEAST 20 minutes on Smackdown, so it's about the same length as the MTV show which was around 22 after commercials.

Except... he's black.





There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

I think the only reason they threw "The Miz" in there, is he already has his own merchandising setup. Although if they brought Puck in as a heel, that'd be a feud worth watching.

This is disturbingly like the Diva Search. From the sounds of it, it's more of a strongman / bodybuilding competition slashed with a reality gameshow than an actual Tough Enough show. Less emphasis on wrestling training, more on wacky 15 minute skits or physical challenges. The end result may be built like a greek god, but could be less developed for in-ring work than Maven was and need to be shipped to OVW to age for a few years.
