Tough Enough is coming back, this time on USA. Oh my gawd, there’s not enough “yays” in the world. The who-wants-to-be-a-WWE-star series is my absolute favorite reality contest show ever, and the idea that there’d be a whole new crop of wannabes learning how to take their “bumps” fills my heart with joy. But! I have one condition: They have to bring back Al Snow.
A USA rep says the show is still in its really, really early phases, and that decisions about judges and mentors haven’t been made yet. Snow isn’t with the WWE anymore, so I know it’s a long shot, but still: Snow’s mentorship and training absolutely made that show. (That fourth season doesn’t exist in my world.) He was so strict and serious sometimes, and then so goofy and jovial at other — I’m not a wrestling fan, but he was so compelling that I got completely sucked into the series.
Are you excited for the return of Tough Enough, PopWatchers? And are you as adamant about Snow’s involvement as I am?
