WWE has released Tough Enough winner Andy Leavine from his developmental contract with the company. His profile as Kevin Hackman has already been removed from the FCW roster page.
The self-proclaimed “Silent Rage” had heat right out the gate as he no-sold Steve Austin’s stunner after being announced as the Tough Enough winner on the June 6, 2011 edition of WWE Raw. Leavine was rumored to have a Wellness violation (although it was never announced by the company) and was said to still have a lot of work to do.
Leavine had been training in Florida Championship Wrestling in Tampa under the ring name Kevin Hackman.
While WWE officials were very pleased with Tough Enough’s ratings on the USA Network, they were discouraged with the lack of talent produced.
