By Richard Trionfo on 2015-08-25 20:55:03
Four months ago, Tough Enough was announced by Triple H. Tonight, we find out if Josh or ZZ will be the men’s winner; and whether Sara Lee or Amanda will be the women’s winner. Ten grueling weeks of competitions bring us to tonight’s show. We see the parade of eliminations.

We are at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida and Renee Young introduces the host of Tough Enough Chris Jericho.

Chris introduces the three judges, Miz, Daniel Bryan, and Paige.

Chris mentions that the final four were busy preparing for their match.

We go to the barracks.

Amanda says it is crazy she has a 50/50 chance to win a contract. She says she won’t let Sara beat her.

Sara says she is looking forward to putting it all together, but it will be live.

ZZ says he is poised and ready. He is like a bullfrog ready to grab that cricket. ZZ says he will have it turned up to a thousand.

Josh says there is less pressure because he knew he was up for elimination but then he was nervous when the voting started. Josh says he has been getting more people behind him.

Amanda says she liked the individual grilling and how it incorporated their personal lives.

Amanda asks Sara about everything coming out about her. Amanda says Sara is not that innocent and she is trying to sleep her way to the top. If it gets around people will not like you.

Sara says that Amanda should not be in her personal life.

Amanda calls Sara a fraud.

Sara says that Amanda is not playing a bitch, she is a bitch.

We go to the Training Facility and Jericho is there with the coaches.

Booker says that the WWE Universe is looking for two of you to have that ‘it factor’. Chris says you get to show what you have learned when you have your first live match.

Josh says it is nothing compared to their first in ring challenge.

Josh says he is going to stay with the Yeti. ZZ wants to be the King of the Bayou. Sara wants to be called Hope since that is where she is from. Amanda thinks about Mandy Rose.

Sara says that she is going to wear a flannel crop top. Amanda says she is going to wear black leather. ZZ says he is going to wear a Gator Head. Josh is suggested that he dress like Jon Snow from Game of Thrones.

Chris talks about their promos. Amanda says she has the ‘it factor’.

They play some music for Sara and she stops smiling.

ZZ wants something like Bad to the Bone with baby gator sounds thrown in.

Chris tells them to work on their promos.

We see all four working on promos until they are called into the barracks by the coaches.

Billy has his bullhorn and ZZ does not like it.

Lita tells them that they will not be facing each other. Cesaro will be facing Josh and ZZ in matches. Alicia will face Amanda and Sara.

They show up and Cesaro says that Josh is going to bring the sauce, but the sauce is here.

Josh says this is a huge opportunity and if he rises to the occasion, it will help him.

Cesaro tells ZZ he will not be ready for him.

Alicia mentions the sisterhood in the locker room.

Sara says that she is looking forward to working with Alicia, but she is worried about working against someone who has been around so long.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Byron Saxton is in the ring to do the introductions for the matches while Drake Wuertz is your referee.

The Coaches are above the ring to watch the matches.

Amanda comes to the ring and she says that she has done many competitions in her life and this has been the most rewarding. Being in the final four has been the best experience of her life. It has been an honor. She says that was Amanda talking, and here is Mandy Rose.

She says that if she wins Tough Enough, she is going to throw a huge party and you are all invited. . . except for you Miz. She says Miz claims to have the Moneymaker, but she has something so much better . . . the Moneyshaker.

Now it is time for the men to wrestle Cesaro and Josh gets the main event spot because ZZ is next.

We see the physical transformation of ZZ.

ZZ comes out to the ring and he has a gator head on his head. He takes his time to get into the ring.

He says that he comes from the deepest darkest part of Louisiana. He got too good wrestling gators so he decided to wrestle people. He is here for two reasons. One is for his baby gators who got him this far. Two, it is for the three coaches up top. Coming this far, there were questions about whether he was tough enough and he answered them all. He asks if Cesaro is ready and if he is tough enough.

Match Number Three: The King of the Bayou (ZZ) versus Cesaro (Cesaro)

Cesaro with a side head lock and ZZ with a leap frog but when ZZ drops down, Cesaro with a front face lock and he hits a dead lift side salto.

Winner: Cesaro

Daniel says ZZ was great other than not getting down on the drop down fast enough. Paige says he lost the votes from the animal lovers. He could have shown more personality on the entrance. Miz says it was a short match and he does not think ZZ can do long term matches. You are not working out and you don’t have the work ethic of a WWE Superstar.

We go to commercial.
