WWE Tough Enough, is a professional wrestling reality television program produced by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) wherein participants underwent professional wrestling training and competed for a contract with WWE. There were two winners per season for the first three seasons, all of which aired on MTV. A fourth competition was held in 2004, with only a single winner, but was integrated into UPN's SmackDown!. In October 2010, it was announced that the USA Network will be reviving Tough Enough. It will be paired with WWE Raw. The revived series will begin airing on April 4, 2011, a day after WrestleMania XXVII. The first three seasons were co-produced with MTV, while the revival will be a co-production with Shed Media.
As of 2010, the only Tough Enough winner still wrestling for WWE is John Hennigan. He is currently wrestling as John Morrison on the Raw brand. Hennigan and Tough Enough I winner Maven Huffman are the only two Tough Enough winners to win championships in the WWE. Hennigan has won the ECW Championship, WWE Intercontinental Championship, and the WWE Tag Team Championship on multiple occasions. Huffman once held the WWE Hardcore Championship. Christopher Nowinski, who didn't win Tough Enough, also held the WWE Hardcore Championship. Mike Mizanin, who came in second place in the $1,000,000 Tough Enough and is better known as The Miz, has won the United States Championship on two occasions and the WWE Championship once. Together, John Morrison and The Miz also would become WWE Tag Team Champions, World Tag Team Champions, and two-time Slammy Award winners. Josh Lomberger, better known as Josh Mathews, is currently the longest tenured WWE employee from the entire Tough Enough cast, eventually signing with WWE in 2002 and becoming an announcer and interviewer on a variety of WWE shows, including Raw, SmackDown, NXT and now defunct ECW.
