USA Network Reportedly Not Happy With WWE Tough Enough Format

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that the USA Network has beenĀ disappointed with the numbers for WWE Tough Enough on Tuesday nights and believeĀ pro wrestling's popularity is cycling downward, which is indicated by the decline in ratings.

The overall feeling at USA Network is the format of Tough Enough isn't working with how it's taped and live becauseĀ because it doesn't give the judges enough time to make fair decisions, and fans are only given a few minutes instead of a full day or full week to vote.

There is also some feeling that while it's not Chris Jericho's fault comes across as a game show type host due to the format whereas Steve Austin who hosted the previous season was more dynamic.

USA is also reportedly concerned with how the last two Tough Enough winners, Daniel Puder and Andy Leavine, were released before never amounting to anything in WWE. The original idea behind Tough Enough was that the winner gets a WWE contract and is expected to become a star but there's a feeling now that winning the show means nothing so fans don't care.
