Steve Austin Says WWE Dropped The Ball With Tough Enough

Shares 0

Steve Austin revealed in an interview promoting "The Package" release on DVD that the window on WWE Tough Enough has closed and that WWE really dropped the ball with the reality series.

The Package, starring Austin and Dolph Lundgren, is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray and DVD combo pack.

    Would have really liked to see another TE season, especially if Austin was still on board. This is just my own speculation, but the failure of the Andy Leavine project might have been a discouraging factor for WWE to produce another season any time soon. Or, perhaps they planned to air it on the WWE Network. Since the future of that project is still uncertain, TE Season 2 never got green lit.

    I like TE but it doesn’t really seem too produce stars like the WWE once. Most the people who won it (besides Miz) aren’t even with the company anymore it seems like. Maybe they can bring it back once they get the WWE network launched. But I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

    • When Miz first came to WWE he was incredibly annoying – both to fans and the locker room. It took a lot of time for him to mature and turn things around to become ‘awesome’ rather than the ‘host of Smackdown’ who shouted ‘hoo-rah’ the whole time, which is one of the most annoying things I’ve ever seen in wrestling. For that reason I used to hate the Miz like Zeb Coulter hates Mexicans – but I really like him now. I can see him being in WWE for an incredibly long time and eventually transitioning into a full time announcer. I’d like to see him have a run with the new WWE title – it’d look great with him wearing it upside down. He’s not that great a wrestler, but neither is John Cena – but they’re both great at the media stuff.

    No idea how “silent rage” won and i knew they wouldnt end up using him.

  • Btw, The Miz was runner up in his season of Tough Enough. He did not win.
