USA Network Airs Tough Enough Competition Special, WWE Superstars Arrive at Performance Center, Press Release For Tonight’s Big Season Premiere

The USA Network aired the WWE Tough Enough Competition Special that first aired on the WWE Network this afternoon and has been running commercials all week long in preparation for tonight’s big season premiere.

The Wrestlezone ‘Wrestle Watch’ will return with a discussion area for tonight’s show, followed by my in-depth analysis and reaction to the first episode. 



STAMFORD, Conn., June 23, 2015 – The highly-anticipated, hard-hitting reality series, WWE Tough Enough, premieres tonight at 8/7C on USA Network, immediately followed by Tough Talk, a live recap show hosted by WWE Superstar The Miz®, at 9/8C exclusively on WWE Network.

WWE Tough Enough is hosted by WWE Superstar Chris Jericho®, who will be joined by a panel of judges, including WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan®, WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan® and WWE Diva Paige™. Each week, one cast member will be eliminated until one man and one woman are considered “Tough Enough,” with each earning a one-year, $250,000 WWE contract. Throughout the competition, the contestants will be trained by WWE Legends Booker T™, Billy Gunn™ and Lita™.

Following the premiere of WWE Tough Enough, WWE Network will air Tough Talk. During the half-hour program, The Miz will have exclusive interviews with eliminated competitors, judges, coaches and special guests. Using social media to ask fans for questions and comments, The Miz will get the answers fans want most.

The revolutionary WWE Tough Enough App is now available for download. This app will provide an unprecedented fan experience before, during and after the show by enabling fans to vote for who stays and who goes with results calculated in real-time during the final minutes of each episode. The app will also include competitor bios and video and social updates as the competition unfolds throughout the week.
