The Miz replaces Hulk Hogan as Tough Enough judge

When news of Hulk Hogan's racist rant on a sex tape was made publicWWE severed all ties with the former star. That included removing him as a judge on this season of Tough Enough, where he was serving alongside Daniel Bryan and Paige. There were rumors that someone like Ric Flair could replace him but, as announced on tonight's episode, they went with the host of Tough Talk and a former contestant on the show, The Miz.

No word on what this means for Tough Talk, considering a major part of that show was Miz going back and forth with the panel of judges while interviewing contestants.

UPDATE: Byron Saxton was hosting Tough Talk tonight.
