I've done a LOT of driving the last few weeks, and listened to a lot of podcasts. I'm a big fan of the MLW radio podcasts, even when I tend to roll my eyes a lot (esp. at Konnan, or somehow Disco Inferno turning a blog on what a piece of shit MMA fighter War Machine is into a treatise on golddigging fans who live to be offended - some kind of inane anti-SJW rant). A few things the guys on those shows have pointed out in the last few weeks w/r/t Tough Enough:
1) the current incarnation is boring as
2) the eventual winner will have hellfire level heat in the NXT locker room, having a $250K contract off the bat
3) outside of Johnny Mundo and Miz, nobody on that show ever amounted to shit
Ryback is pretty successful.
Ivelisse has done well for herself. Kenny King, Matt Morgan, Josh Matthews, and Jackie Gayda were also featured on the show.
Miz has come a long way and deserves all the credit in the world.
