- Mark Suleymanov of The Inquisitr recently interviewed former WWE superstar Curt Hawkins. During the interview, Hawkins gave his thoughts on WWE Tough Enough.
"It's a good TV show and that's it, there's never a payoff," said Hawkins. "Wrestling is an incredibly difficult art form to learn, you can't learn it in three months. So WWE takes these people who never trained before, throw them into a situation where they become big stars, they are on TV every week, people are invested in them and know their whole back story, know everything about them, and are on TV every week for three months and then they win, and guess what, they still don't know how to wrestle."
Hawkins talked more about Tough Enough, his wrestling school and more. You can listen to the full interview by clicking here.
