WWE Confirms Stone Cold Steve Is To Return For Tough Enough

The following was posted on WWE.com:

NEW YORK CITY – USA Network and WWE announced that WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin will host USA Network’s upcoming reality series "WWE Tough Enough." The non-scripted series will premiere Monday, April 4 at 11/10 CT, immediately following USA’s ratings juggernaut WWE Monday Night Raw, and move to its regularly scheduled slot in primetime, Mondays at 8/7 CT, starting on April 11.

“Stone Cold” Steve Austin has captivated audiences around the world with his magnetic presence and bold, yet charming nature. Austin has done it all in sports-entertainment, winning 17 championships, including the WWE Championship six times. He has an immense and incredibly devoted fan base, and is considered one of the most popular WWE Superstars of all time. Austin was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2009.

"I am very excited about the opportunity to work with my old friends at WWE on 'WWE Tough Enough.' Sports-entertainment has always been an important part of my life, and I look forward to finding the next generation of WWE Superstar," said Austin.

"Stone Cold" will share his intimate knowledge, experience and flair for the stage as one of the most popular figures in WWE history to a group of individuals looking for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become the next WWE Superstar or Diva. Austin will mentor the diverse group of men and women who will live, train, eat and sleep under one roof in a house in Simi Valley, Calif. Each week, the contestants will battle it out in a series of unique challenges designed to test for such characteristics as showmanship, creativity, athleticism and desire, just to name a few. Viewers will witness the trials and tribulations of what it takes to be one of the best in the world’s greatest sports-entertainment organization. The grand prize winner will be awarded a contract with WWE.

Since leaving the world of sports-entertainment, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin has made a name for himself in Hollywood, with roles in such blockbuster hits as The Expendables, staring Sylvester Stallone and The Longest Yard, starring Adam Sandler and Chris Rock. Other film credits include Damage, The Condemned and Hunt to Kill. In addition to film, Austin is a household name from his work on hit television shows such as NBC’s Chuck and CBS’ Nash Bridges.

Shed Media US, noted for its strong characters and memorable casting in the non-scripted arena, will produce "WWE Tough Enough." The company’s previous reality credits include The Real Housewives of New York City, Who Do You Think You Are and World's Strictest Parents. Producing for Shed Media US are Alex Demyanenko and Eric Van Wagenen.

Jake "The Snake"To Retire This Sunday

The following press release was issued:

Wrestling Legend Retires

(Los Angeles, CA) - Jake "The Snake" Roberts' name makes many wrestlers and fans cringe as they remember his vicious finishing move the DDT, then add insult to injury as he let his snake Damien slither over his victims. On January 29, 2011, Jake the Snake will retire from professional wrestling against former WWE star Sinn Bodhi at Wrestlereunion in Los Angeles, CA.


Growing up Sinn Bodhi idolized Roberts, and Roberts was probably the only wrestler that actually intimidated Bodhi.

The two superstars would eventually wrestle each other for the first time in a tag-team match where Jake "The Snake" Roberts teamed up with Nigel McGuiness to face Sinn Bodhi and TNA's Doug Williams. The match ended with Sinn Bodhi finding himself on the receiving end of Robert's vicious DDT.

In Ottawa, 2002, Roberts and Bodhi became friends and Roberts taught Bodhi everything he knows.

"I probably learned the most just sitting on his couch watching videos of his matches with Legends like Ricky Steamboat, Macho Man Randy Savage, Ted DiBiase, and "Ravishing" Rick Rude etc... Jake would play and pause the videos explaining to me what he was thinking and doing throughout the matches. It was scary just how intelligent he was AND is" says Bodhi

This match at Wrestlereunion in Los Angeles isn't just a retirement match, it's a match between teacher and student. Bodhi will be the last match his idol will ever partake in, an honor for him in so many ways.

"I will be facing Jake "The Snake" Roberts in his Retirement Match at Wrestlereunion. Jake has described me as, "Too dangerous for WWE to control." Yet, I will be facing the most innovative, dangerous man in Pro Wrestling history... My teacher... My friend... I love you Jake, however, at Wrestlereunion you will be passing the torch whether you like it or not..." says Bodhi on the match

What: Wrestlereunion 5
Where: Hilton Hotel at the Los Angeles Airport
When: January 29, 2011
Time: 8:00 PM

For more information contact the hotel at (310) 410-4000
