The WWE’s new version of Tough Enough may return for a fifth season, airing as part of SmackDown! next summer. That’s according to Impact Wrestling, which reports the show “drew good enough ratings for the WWE to begins plans for Tough Enough 5 this coming summer. Al Snow is almost certain to remain head trainer for the class.” Meanwhile, Tough Enough 4 runner-up Mike “The Miz” “was said to be crushed that he lost the contest to Puder as he felt he had a great chance of winning,” the site reports. “The general feeling among many though was that Puder won because he looked better on TV than Mizanin in the various competitions he took part in.”
