The WWE is bringing back Tough Enough, and Stone Cold Steve Austin is too busy to be the host. When the show made a total rejuvenation in 2011, Austin created the best environment for the potential-WWE superstars to succeed. Obviously, the WWE must replace Austin and find the best applicant for the job. That’s the million-dollar question to the WWE. Who will host the season of Tough Enough?
In an earlier report by the Inquisitr, there was a story that talked about Edge, Christian, and Taz, former-TNA announcer, could end up hosting Tough Enough. This time around, the WWE has to make sure they grab the right host. Like it was mentioned earlier, Stone Cold did a fantastic job with each wrestler, but the winner is nowhere to be found.
That may be the fault of WWE officials and trainers. Perhaps that’s the fault of Andy Leavine himself, who isn’t sniffed the WWE since his reality show-victory in 2011. Without Stone Cold Steve Austin, the next host will require charisma, while having, at the same time, incredible experience and in-ring skill. Above all else, he must have time.
One man fits the bill and is teasing something huge. According to Chris Jericho’s official Twitter, there is major news on the horizon.
BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS COMING! Stick around and watch this space to hear more!

Before any WWE fan jumps to a conclusion, this tweet could be talking about a new tour for Jericho’s band, Fozzy. That way, his fans would know when the concerts where. Aside from being obvious, another outcome of the announcement might lead to another big podcast, maybe a weekly one on the WWE Network. The next live special on the WWE Network is Chris Jericho’s podcast with Stephanie McMahon tomorrow night.
Lastly, Chris Jericho could be announced as the next host of Tough Enough. WWE would get a big draw from ratings, as well as the WWE Universe entirely. Everybody loves Chris Jericho, and he’s a true legend in the business. Earlier this month, rumors floated around that Jericho was becoming the new host of the WWE reality show. If it does come true, there will be a lot more of the Ayatollah of Rock N’ Rollah on WWE programming.
While he is around WWE grounds, there’s no reason not to think he would help train on his off-hours at the NXT developmental center. Imagine the type of training Finn Balor, Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, and Hideo Itami would get with Chris Jericho. They are already stars, but Jericho has the WWE main event experience to back it up. If this were an election, vote for Jericho.
