Trivia: WWE Tough Enough

  • Channel Hop: Went from MTV, to UPN to USA Network
  • Deleted Scene: There's a handful.
    • The first episode features Matt bumping into CM Punk while working backstage. The two are good friends from their years on the indies together.
    • Matt also claims he set himself on fire while in the house.
    • Trish took the contestants for a Yoga practice. Luke notably struggled with it and Christina was noted as a stand-out. It does explain why Trish and Christina are practicing privately in a later episode.
  • Fan Nickname: Diva Dirt liked to give Rima a new nickname every week. They included "Miss Ghetto USA" and "Miss Late USA"
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Without taking into consideration the early bird cameos, there a few familiar faces:
  • Name's the Same: Eric Watts was the big, stiff guy who can't wrestle from Tough Enough. Erik Watts was the big, stiff guy who can't wrestle from early '90s WCW. No relation.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Ariane gets this now having since gained a spot as one of Brodus Clay's dancers, eventually graduating to a wrestling role and landing a spot on the hit reality series Total Divas.
  • Star-Making Role: For Ariane (see above) and Ivelisse - who was in the company for several months as Sofia Cortez but enjoyed more high profile bookings after her release.
  • Troubled Production: Season 2. The training was going so badly, people theorised that "these kids aren't ready" should have been the show's tag line. And that's not to mention the debacle that was the finale.
  • What Could Have Been: Chris Jericho was at one point in talks to host the revival, but eventually turned it down to appear on Dancing with the Stars. Jericho admitted that he wouldn't have been Drill Sergeant Nasty as Stone Cold had he hosted.
