Report: Tough Enough To Be Revived on USA

So says Deadline Hollywood:

USA Network continues its genre expansion with a big push in reality programming. The top basic cable network is close to ordering its first unscripted series in 5 years, WWE Tough Enough. It is also in the process of hiring a reality executive, and USA programming president Jeff Wachtel has been meeting with top reality production companies to talk about his plans in the arena. USA's revival of Tough Enough actually came together separately from its current efforts in the unscripted area and stems from the network' relationship with WWE through USA staple WWE Raw. Tough Enough, which features contestants competing for a contract with WWE, ran on MTV for 3 seasons, and in 2004 it moved to UPN where it aired for a season as part of SmackDown. On USA, it also is expected to run in tandem with USA's WWE Raw series.

I actually really liked Tough Enough's run on MTV so I can't say that I am opposed to this idea. I know there were some rumblings that the WWE was going to incorporate NXT into their weekly shows like the last season of Tough Enough (famous for Daniel Puder shooting on Kurt Angle) was on Smackdown.
