    The New York Times published an article on Sunday announcing that the new season of "Tough Enough" will premiere on the USA Network on Monday, April 4th - the night after WrestleMania
    . The show will

    The new "Tough Enough" will air on Monday nights at 8:00 p.m. EST, right before WWE RAW, creating a three-hour block of WWE programming on USA.

    Tough Enough will feature 12 men and women competing for a one-year WWE contract. At this time, there's been no word about a cash prize for the show's winner.

    WWE's executive TV producer Kevin Dunn says WWE hopes the show will draw in new viewers who will stick around for WWE RAW.

    “It’s a way to bring eyeballs to the WWE product that wouldn’t necessarily watch a live event wrestling show.”

    Dunn told the New York Times that USA has been interested in Tough Enough for years and wants to add more "unscripted" programming to its schedule.

                    Tough Enough will become WWE's new NXT with a pre-set winner from the jump. I'm pretty sure this is why Seth Rollins hasn't been on NXT yet.

                      Why would they have Tyler Black on TE? He's a 7 year pro already.

                      The show should be finding the next best wrestlers and training them.

                              when you're a former ROH champion, the word amateur is not on your resume.

                              but you know whats funny, Tyler Black is your new favorite wrestler...and you don't even know yet.
