The latest rumors popping up are that WWE want Tough Enough competitor ZZ eliminated from the competition and a 3 minute video of coach Billy Gunn tearing ZZ a new one during training was uploaded on the Tough Enough website to encourage fans to not vote for him.
ZZ has been in the bottom three multiple times and has always managed to stay alive thanks to the large following from the public who seem to love his charisma. However WWE is looking for someone who can actually wrestle, something that ZZ has not been able to follow so far after six weeks.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer adds that WWE tried to set up ZZ for elimination during the last episode of Tough Enough but fans decided to get rid of Amanda – who was saved by The Miz. Unfortunately Mada was the next one with the lowest votes so he was eliminated. Two potential winners – Patrick and Mada – have been eliminated when going up against the fan favorite ZZ.
Following Billy Gunn’s rant on ZZ for his lack of cardio and slowing everyone else down, it’s safe to say that ZZ will once again be in the bottom 3 next week.
WWE has so far followed the fans’ real votes when it comes to eliminations.
