Former WWE creative team member Court Bauer posted the following on Twitter concerning WWE’s decision to bring back the Tough Enough show:
"Glad WWE finally embracing reality TV (a decade late).. Tough Enough and reality is a proven GREAT vehicle to launch stars, BUT will WWE consistently commit to this new talent in long run? Skeptical."
Former WWE creative team member and current Ring of Honor creative team member Dave Lagana responded to Bauer’s post by posting the following on his Twitter account:
"He just doesn’t get it, boss’ Six words that have killed more careers before they could develop. Remember all the hype with NXT last year too? Will wait to see on execution."
Lagana then said, "I look forward to Tough Enough, but more importantly look forward to the weeks and months after to see what they make of the talent from the show."
