Two Tough Enough competitors made their NXT debut last night in a non-televised live event in Orlando, Florida.
The male winner of the competition, Josh, was introduced to the crowd under the new name of Bronson Mathews. He only cut a promo saying that the year 2016 will be big for him and he has to prove he’s worth the $250,000 contract.
Later in the show, former MMA fighter Daria, who was the fourth one cut from the competition, also made her debut and wrestled her first match, a losing effort against Nia Jax.
WWE has Josh, Sara Lee, Amanda, ZZ, Mada, Patrick, and Daria under contract, which makes it a record for Tough Enough signees. Daria, despite being the first one out of the seven under a deal, was the first one who got her match.
