Tough Enough Winner Andy Leavine Reveals What’s Next

Nick Paglino

In a new interview for, Tough Enough winner Andy Leavine says that he’s heading back to WWE’s training facility, FCW, which I’d gather is a logical next step for the rookie Tough Enough winner. Leavine says in the interview,

"First in ‘Tough Enough,’ and now in preparation for my impending WWE career, I get the opportunity to learn from the best," WWE’s new Superstar added, describing the privilege of studying with the likes of Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat and "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes. "Their overall influence and wisdom are the biggest advantages I have toward becoming a true force to be reckoned with."

Nick’s Note: I’ve read some criticism of WWE’s decision to move Andy to development, but in all honesty, not a single Tough Enough contestant, given what we saw on the show, is ready for main roster performance. Despite "personality," no "performer" from the show seems competent enough to actually wrestle on TV.
