Tough Enough finalist Zamariah “ZZ” Loupe signs WWE deal

ZZ is reporting that Tough Enough finalist Zamariah “ZZ” Loupe was at the WWE Performance Center on Monday training and has signed a WWE developmental deal.

ZZ, one of the most popular figures on Tough Enough this year lost in the final to Josh, surprisingly only gathering 30% of the votes after wiping out the competition every time he was in the bottom three. Many thought he would be winning the competition with Sara Lee, who turned out to be the winner of the female contract.

Loupe got a lot of criticism during the show from his coaches and judges on the panel due to his physical condition and for running out of gas at everything he did.

The Louisiana native who grew up wrestling alligators joins Amanda, the other runner-up, signing a WWE developmental deal after the end of the competition. Amanda has been moved to the cast of Total Divas for the next series, replacing Naomi.
