As everyone is aware about two months ago the WWE officially re-launch the once popular "reality show" Tough Enough which followed 13 hopeful contestants on their path to becoming the next WWE superstars and divas. I have mentioned in other posts in this section of the site that I was a big fan of Tough Enough and that this series was my favorite show produced by WWE. However, that was before this season happened because everything including my opinion of the show has changed due to how bad this season has been. Let me just put it this way if something is your favorite show would you willingly miss it three weeks straight or would you at least try to watch it. See for the last three weeks I haven't seen Tough Enough, but then tonight I decided to give it another try.
Boy was that a mistake, if you followed my "commentary" on twitter then you would know that I wasn't speaking very highly of anyone in competition and the show in general. Well I take that back I did praise both GiGi and Tanner after their match on the show which was a part of this weeks challenge. Fact is the two of them and Josh were the bright spots of the show for me. There is no doubt that if GiGi messed up by being a heel instead good guy for her match then yeah that's bad, but grounds for elimination Nope!! (someone will know what I am referencing right here)
The low point of the show for me was when ZZ and Sara board line lied on camera when they said that they didn't depend on the popular vote. Bull*** you don't depend popular vote if it wasn't for the fan vote both ZZ and Sara wouldn't be in the competition right now and people who actually deserve to have made it this far would have been here instead. That is why I think it was mistake to allow the fans to have say in who stays and who goes in the competition, because at this point this show has become a Popularity Contest rather then a search for the next WWE superstar & diva which means this show has been a waste.
The problem is they believed that they needed to change the show to get interest, well I hate to you but the concept wasn't they that was broken. How about the fact that in Six Season of the show not one Winner has accomplished anything in the WWE. I mean just take Season 5 winner Andy Levine who was actually from NXT. Andy won the competition then went back to NXT and was never seen again. Why? because he got release less then a year after he won the show. Why? Bother doing the show if you have not intention of keeping the winner/s and if you have NO!!! Plans for the winner after the show ends. So it wasn't the concept that needed tweaking it was this idea that WWE never "pushes" the winners of Tough Enough they rarely end up accomplishing anything or even staying with the company for a long period of time.
The problem with this show is at this point the damage has been done and it is time to cut ties and run far away from the show idea in general. The host brings nothing to the show and the judges just over complicate things and make the show all the less real. Fact is this why the fans shouldn't have a say, because they make everything a popularity contest and this isn't a popularity contest it is suppose to be a competition to find the next WWE superstar and diva and I think they are doing the opposite; they are instead finding the next flop and failure in the WWE. I was a fan of this show because it gave "opportunity" and to see the joke the show has become is a damn shame and very unfortunate for everyone. Because whoevers wins the show would have won a meaningless competition.
