Tough Enough 2015 is still proving to be one of the most interesting seasons since the competition first started, even though it finished long ago.
There was a lot of hype and promise heading into the competition this year as fans were promised the chance to play a big role, however, that quickly backfired.
Putting the results into the hands of the WWE Universe meant it turned out to be more of a popularity contest and plenty of negatives came from the show. Regardless of the viewership figures and what fans thought of the competition this year it’s actually proving to be the most successful season ever.

In previous years, we’ve seen one or two Superstars signed to developmental deals who have gone on to compete in the WWE, such as The Miz and Ryback. This year, seven competitors have been signed and it may not end there.
Josh and Sara Lee were crowned the winners and they were quickly joined by runners-up Amanda and ZZ, with Amanda working on Total Divas.
Earlier this week it was reported that the favourite to win the show, Patrick Cark was signed to a developmental deal and will start working at the WWE Performance Center.
And now PWInsider are reporting two more contestants have also signed developmental deals with the company.
The first is Mada who is a celebrity personal trainer and he was also a favourite to win the show. In his case, the whole ‘popularity contest’ debate was discussed again as he had a great opportunity to win and did very little wrong.
He has a great look which is something somebody like Vince McMahon would admire as it’s a typical 80’s monster-look and it was clear on the show that he was determined to make it into the WWE.
OTHER SIGNINGS POSSIBLE?
The second contestant the WWE have reportedly signed is Daria.
She was one of the first to be eliminated from the show. The good thing with her is that she has a background in Mixed Martial Arts which is a good first step heading into the Performance Center.
There was a lot of potential in her but, unfortunately, her character-building wasn’t the best compared to others.
At the same time, though, she wasn’t given as many opportunities to shine so it’s good she’s getting another chance.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see more contestants from this season make their way to the Performance Center. We can say what we want about the show and the format, but you can’t deny that the line-up was quite strong this year.
I’d say Tanner and Giorgia are definitely two stars the WWE will be keeping an eye on, and it would be good to add more names who can add value to the business in the future.
