WWE Tough Enough contestant Tanner Saraceno spent time with Dave Meltzer at Friday’s World MMA Awards, and in a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer said Saraceno divulged several behind-the-scenes details about the show.
As for the interviews conducted with the cast on Tough Enough, Saraceno admitted they are entirely scripted, and he even noted he had to reshoot interviews numerous times because there was a term WWE producers needed to make sure he said in the interview.
As for the winners of the show, WWE officials were pushing for Josh to win the show from the beginning, and they would even show footage of Josh performing well, and leave out footage of other cast members performing the same thing as well or better than Josh.
