According to PWInsider, WSU World Champion Mercedes Martinez and WSU Spirit Champion Brittney Savage were both in contention for the final crop of Tough Enough contestants, but ultimately did not make the cut.
Last month, we revealed that Savage had two callbacks for the show and was said to be in ‘deeper talks than most’ according to a source.
Meanwhile in an interview with Diva Dirt, Mercedes Martinez noted that she wasn’t going to apply at first. After being nudged a little bit and asked why she hadn’t applied by the producers, she eventually did apply.
Aside from Rima Fakih, it’s unknown who else is on the cast at this point. As with most reality competitions, the contestants are likely under strict confidentiality agreements.
WWE Tough Enough will return on April 4th.
