Report: WWE cuts Tough Enough winner 'Big' Andy Leavine

I guess "Big" Andy Leavine wasn't Tough Enough, after all. (Too easy? Yeah.)

The boys at (click at your own risk) are reporting that World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has cut ties with Andy Leavine, the guy Stone Cold Steve Austin picked to be the winner of Tough Enough this past year.

He had been working in Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW), WWE's developmental territory, as Kevin Hackman.

Leavine was initially signed to a deal in 2010, before Tough Enough ever came back. He was cast on the show and while he did poorly all throughout, he was picked over show favorite Luke Robinson in the final. After winning the reality television series, "Big" Andy spent a few weeks on Raw but quickly disappeared. They even ran a few vignettes for him but nothing ever came of it because he was suspended for a Wellness Policy violation for failing a drug test.

We've heard almost nothing from him since then and now he's out of the company altogether. And Tough Enough continues its run of creating almost no stars for WWE.
