Rima Fakih - former Miss USA winner and Tough Enough contestant - spoke with the guys at "Running the Ropes" about her experience on Tough Enough and the possibility of returning to WWE.
About her Tough Enough experience: "One of the things I like to do is break stereotypes and let people know that you can be beautiful and tough at the same time. It was a great adventure. I have to say that coming to the Tough Enough was not only a highlight of my reign but my Journey as Rima Fakih."
How the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants responded to her joining WWE: "The reason, I think, was because I hosted Raw a couple of times and just thought that even though my organization and our (Miss Universe pageant) president, Miss Paula Shugart, was terrified when I told her 'I can do it! I can do Tough Enough,' everyone was kind of afraid for me." She was told by WWE, "When they find out you're Miss USA, you're going to be looked at as 'What are you doing here? You'll be like the piñata.' I told them 'Great! I love the challenge!' … I just wanted to prove myself in the ring. Let my actions speak for me."
About her future with WWE: "Well I have been in talks with Triple H very recently. So I'll definitely keep you updated."
