Is there any chance that any of the Tough Enough winners will ever go to RAW? It seems Tough Enough is exclusively a Smackdown brand show, so will the two female winners go to Smackdown to help start up a working women's division on that show, or will they ever go to RAW to compete in a somewhat-already-operating division? I'd like to think that a "just eye candy" role for Jackie and Linda is not going to work (what kind of message will that send to future young TE contestants? "Come to the WWE and get sexually exploited by Vince McMahon!") so how else are they going to be used right now, if at all?

Any ideas?

I heard something like this before, so I'm not going to take credit for thinking it up.. but with the way Vince McMahon is now, and how Stacy asked if Vince was okay with it when she opened the second envelope, he could have ordered them to draft both women for his own "personal pleasure" on Smackdown.. thus giving them a built in storyline when they debut. Maybe Linda would suck up to Vince and do what he wants to try to get herself a job while Jackie resists and tries to earn her own way, setting up instant feuds between the two of them, Stacy and Trish. Throw Dawn Marie and Ivory in, and you have something that resembles an actual Women's divison.

Now, flash back to Raw.. Ric Flair makes an announcement saying that Vince is a pervert who chose two women as Tough Enough winners just so he could get his hands on them. Because Flair is fair, he'll offer contracts to Kenny and Jake. They come out, and you can go anywhere from there, putting them in Maven-esque roles as plucky rookies, making Jake Flair's hired muscle, or any number of things. And you build up the rivalry between the two shows, reminding everyone that no, Flair and Vince aren't friends, even though they're both heels.

WWE rule of Faces and Heels:

All faces are allies. All heels are allies. Therefore, Vince and Flair are allies. End of story.

Where will the Tough Enough contestants go? My guess is OVW for right now. I don't think they have to worry about a creative direction for those two for a while.

Yup, I know the WWE rule of faces and heels, but DMC asked for our ideas.. thus I gave mine. Besides, even though at the last PPV Vince and Flair did talk and seemed to get along, the look Flair and Arn gave Vince when he left sure seemed to show dislike and distrust, like they were only pretending to like him. By signing Jake and Kenny, and finding a way to weasel Benoit away for Raw, they can try to reignite some form of competition between the shows.. and thus become the only two heels that don't get along.

Smackdown makes sense from the standpoint that TE always followed SD. The two shows are tied together in that sense. Plus all the TE2 trainers are on Smackdown.

I also think that since Smackdown is taped, they can edit off any screwups the TE kids might have in their matches. They are still rookies after all.

Nice to see that someone remembers what I said in the "HUH?" thread.

From the spoilers I read, it looks like they're not even going to wrestle on Smackdown for a while. Their first match is on Velocity! Yeah, that's keeping them in the public's eye alright.

Yeah, it seemed like half the recaps I read of that scene totally missed that. Just because they`re both heels, they still don`t like each other. Maybe it was too subtle and made too much sense.

I think I read somewhere that the WWE is thinking about making a Tough Enough sable...hopefully I'm mistaken...

Maybe he should get together with Chyna(Doll) or whatever she's calling herself now that she's in some band and call themselves the anti-H's (Hulk Hogan, HHH).
