WWE and Ten Sports bring reality series ‘WWE Tough Enough’ to India

MUMBAI: WWE and Ten Sports will partner to bring the hard hitting reality series ‘WWE Tough Enough’ to fans in the Indian subcontinent on Ten Sports and Ten HD.

The series will premiere live on 24 June at 5:30 am.

This season will combine the excitement of live television with reality-show drama, as WWE hopefuls vie for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become the next WWE Superstar or Diva.

‘WWE Tough Enough’ is hosted by WWE Superstar Chris Jericho, who will be joined by a panel of judges including WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan, WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan and WWE Diva Paige.

Unlike anything on television today, the lightning-fast hour of entertainment and competition will include live results every week, giving fans worldwide the power to decide who stays and who goes the very same night.

Every week, the three judges will each nominate one competitor they believe should be cut, and it will be up to the WWE Universe to vote and determine who they feel is “Tough Enough,” to remain in the competition. The competitor with the least number of votes will be eliminated.

Throughout the season, each judge will have the ability to save one competitor from being sent home. Ultimately, one man and one woman will be considered “Tough Enough,” with each earning a one-year, $250,000 WWE contract.

The competitors will be coached by WWE Legends Booker T, Billy Gunn and Lita, and competitors will come face-to-face with WWE icons including WWE chairman & CEO Vince McMahon; EVP, Talent, Live Events & Creative, Paul “Triple H” Levesque; and WWE Superstars John Cena, Big Show and Randy Orton, among others.

WWE will also partner with Periscope, a new live streaming app, to give fans a look through the eyes of the competitors as the drama unfolds each week during training and competitions leading up to the weekly premieres.

The WWE Tough Enough App is now available for download. This app will provide fan experience before, during and after the show by enabling fans to vote for who stays and who goes with results calculated in real-time during the final minutes of each episode. The app will also include competitor bios and video and social update as the competition unfolds throughout the week.
