DO WE WANT TOUGH ENOUGH 3 or WILL THESE BELT POSERS LEARN TO GET IN THE OLD FASHION WAY

What about it, another season?
Why?
Why Not?
Let us remember when you let one of these rookies in the WWF they are only semi skilled at best, but WWF has them competing at Smackdown and RAW weekly?

Hell there's about 40,000 wrestlers still hoping to get their break in the business with well over a years training alone. these guys Eat Sleep and Breathe Wrestling.
Tough enough kids merely make it based on luck.

There's a guarentee that one of the 13 has a shot at the WWFE.

In reality it's 1 out of 50 will probably get an opportunity to wrestle a show at the local indie scene.

Just tell them that at the end of the season (6 months) one to three of you will be guarenteed to have a WWE contract? and wrestling on RAW, SMACKDOWN and all the PPVs? Even though you still need ring work.

Here's a novel idea...wrestling is built on personality...by knowing the "real" person by watching Tough Enough the casual fan can identify with a Maven or Nidia.

Casual fans don't care if a guy can do a bunch of wrist locks, arm drags, snapmares, and takedowns. They want image and mic skills. Tough Enough gives these built instantly to the winner.

Also, give credit to some of these guys. Maven isn't any worse the Billy or Chuck and will sell (no ego on that one), and Josh and Harvard Chris from TE1 have continued to seek a carreer in the wrestling business. And remember that Jackie was cut last time and tired again...some of these people are actually dedicated.

Look at Nidia...she won, but is still being trained. The WWF is giving Maven a push because he is over. Yes he got in without paying serious dues...but you take what you can get. And what isn't given to you will be all the sweeter when you get it.

I just hope it ends soon. Saying Maven is "over" isn't exactly the case (the tag team last PPV with Al Snow was forced and right now, he's getting over on getting the crap beat out of him). I just don't want to see people get pushed after a brief stint while people like Christian, Kanyon, and other keep getting pushed farther down, who are good workers, but haven't been given a good direction yet.

It's sad that at most live Smackdown events MAven will get the biggest pop of the night.

The purpose of the Tough Enough series is to make money, period. It gets good ratings, so there will be a third. And there will be more until it stops making money.

But I'm not sure anyone is being denied an opportunity. It's not like Vince doesn't have the money to sign as many wrestlers as he wants. There is not a finite amount of slots. So it's not like the Tough Enough kids is denying anyone their opportunity.

And also, while Maven is wrestling on PPV's and Smackdown, they've barely let Nidia near the ring, much less wrestle in it. Probably because she is not ready. So I wouldn't assume that just because thest people win that they are going to take TV time from others. Maven seems to be on TV because of his personality, and he does bump well. Since he can "pop" the crowd, he probably deserves to be on TV.
