– Talks have taken place within WWE regarding a new reality show project. Several ideas have been pitched and the talks have been limited primarily to members of the creative staff. There is a possibility it will be a new twist on the Tough Enough concept. A source described one of the preposed concepts as a “Tough Enough reboot.”
WWE chairman Vince McMahon has gone back and forth regarding whether to feature developmental wrestlers or proven stars in the reality project, so the Tough Enough concept is not a lock. The idea has come up several times in the past, but it sounds like they are more serious about a reality show this time around, as a source believes it tentatively on the 2009 calendar. McMahon is said to be keen on the idea of the show featuring some type of fan voting (perhaps via paid text voting) if they go with an elimination process.
