– It was reported Monday afternoon that WWE has released Andy Leavine, who won last year’s Tough Enough contest. Bill DeMott, who worked as a trainer on the reality program, confirmed his departure from the organization via Twitter.

“My hope is andy continues to follow his course and get some well needed experience,” DeMott wrote. “I like Andy and wish him much success.”

Pro Wrestling Torch reports that news of Leavine’s release from the organization is not considered surprising.

— The top advertised matches for WWE’s Raw brand tour of Spain on June 6-9 is CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho for the WWE Championship and John Cena vs. The Miz.

— Tickets for WWE’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view event at US Airways Arena in Phoenix, Arizona go on sale May 4. The event takes place July 15.

    Silent Rage was his name i just didn’t think he would take it so serious that he’d make his career silent….anyway wwe hope you learned a lesson by not picking contestant that just look good on tv and have no knowledge of wrestling history…wwe should scout indie circuit and pick from talent who been bust balls

  • docbrown

    SILENT RAGE!!!!!

    Tna should give him a 3-6 months training then get him on tv and make him wrestle for 1 year if he ain’t a good wrestler or got any mic skill tell him to find another way to earn money.But TNA should give it a try he ain’t WWE material period.

    To address the Leavine issue: Kevin Hackman. He was known as Kevin Hackman in WWE Developmental. He had been employed, fired, and sought redemption through Tough Enough. Clearly, he had done nothing to earn his redemption outside of the scope of Tough Enough.

    Not being funny, but winning Tough enough should not guarantee a main roster spot. If it turned out he didnt progress during training etc, then why shouldnt they end up cutting him?
    Putting him on Raw or SD just because he won TE isnt a good idea. Look at all the TE guys from previous seasons, and for the most part, its ended up being the guys who didnt win that went on to have the better WWE careers.
    The only winner who went on to any form of true success was John Morrison, and even he took ages before he got his proper shot with MNM.

    oh please Andy had no talent whatsoever and along with a failing drug test not even making it to the main roster!

    like i said from the start Luke should have won!!!!!

  • Whatever

    why even have tough enough, if the winner is not gonna stay around, he was not even used for anything

  • Sammo

    That’ll teach him for not selling that stunner…

  • Little Jimmy

    Well TNA could be the next step for him. For young green big guys TNA is the place to be.

  • JIR

    Well the winner gets a 1 year DEVELOPMENTAL deal not sure if the contract guaranteed a spot on the Main Roster

  • stockshark28

    So why watch tough enough if winning it doest mean anything? Dude never wrestled in WWE STUPID!
