As noted earlier, WWE announced today that they have signed several contestants from the most recent season of Tough Enough, including Mada Abdelhamid, Daria Berenato, Patrick Clark, Zamariah "ZZ" Loupe and Amanda Saccomanno. One name missing from that list was bikini model Giorgia "GiGi" Piscina, who routinely won the challenges on the show.
We noted that Dave Meltzer stated on the Wrestling Observer message board that there was an issue from her past that "was something big" that prevented WWE from signing her, although he admitted that he didn't know what it was. He wrote:
"Gigi would have been signed but something very troubling about her past came up. It was really big but I don't know what it was. But it was like hands off pretend she was never here."
Meltzer later wrote that it was a mistake, and he actually meant Tough Enough contestant Gabi Castrovinci, writing:
Gabi, not Gigi, sorry.
We have removed the original article. As noted, Piscina already denied the original reports on her Twitter, writing:

I can assure u there is nothing "BIG" in my past that would have caused #WWE not 2 sign me. Unless being a quiet straight A student is "big"— Giorgia Piscina (@GiorgiaPiscina) October 28, 2015
If you did not watch the last season of Tough Enough, below are some photos of Piscina:
