Backstage News: WWE Nixes Barrett Title Win + Tough Enough
Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter-- To update the news that WWE's Tough Enough reality show is likely returning to television, it's come out that WWE producer Kevin Dunn has been one of the driving forces behind its return. While some influential people in WWE are not behind the idea, Vince McMahon is said to be on board.
-- WWE's creative brass had planned last week for Wade Barrett to win the WWE Championship last night at Bragging Rights. Though the British wrestler ultimately won the match, he did not win the title due to interference from fellow Nexus member John Cena. Thus, Orton retained the gold.
-- On January 31st, WWE Monday Night RAW will take place at the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island. This will be the show the day after the Royal Rumble.
