WWE Issues Statement About Tough Enough, Starts Removing Some Hulk Hogan WWE Network Shows

CBS-DC is reporting that WWE issued the following statement to their own Chuck Carroll:

WWE and USA Network plan to announce a new judge next Tuesday night at 8 p.m. ET during WWE Tough Enough.

Earlier, we noted that it's being reported that Ric Flair is a leading candidate for the spot, There are a number of reasons why that may not be a great idea.

Meanwhile, WWE has removed both the Hogan edition of "Beyond the Ring" and the '80s "Hulk Hogan's Rock 'n' Wrestling" cartoon series from WWE Network. At this point, it looks like that's the only Network content being removed, but it could change.

They likely check off too many boxes as something that would be a bad look in light of Hogan's racist comments. It would be impossible to erase Hulk Hogan of all people from the archives, so removing shows like the Hogan documentary and Hogan-centric retro cartoon are just about the only things they can do on the network.
