Not a big indy follower, but I've heard Aries is one of the best ROH talents. They better have some really good talent on the show, if they couldn't put Aries in it:no:

We noted earlier today here on the website that some independent wrestlers that were under consideration for the revival of Tough Enough and didn't make the final cut were Austin Aries, Mercedes Martinez, Joey Ryan, Brittney Savage and JD Maverick.

Another wrestler that was under consideration for the program noted that many of his peers echoed frustration after dealing with casting directors as he and others were led to believe they were going to be tapped for the show, only to never hear back again from them.

Many of the show's contestants have prior wrestling experience. Those names, however, have yet to be publicly disclosed. The only contestant announced thus far is Miss USA 2010 Rima Fakih. You can click here to view 20 smokin' hot photos of Rima Fakih. Wow.

Filming is ongoing and will conclude in late March.

Also, Steve Austin is not living in the house with the contestants.

Aries is a heck of talent. Would be great in any company. But for some reason, he always looked minature. Honestly, if you see a video or picture of just him, you think 'wow, this guy is epic'. But in a match, he really does look disproportionately small. Seriously.
Yeah, Aries is tiny. The size of the soles on his boots is hilarious. I don't know how he manages to wrestle in them tbh.

As for Joey Ryan, surely he's made for WWE? I don't know why they won't book people like him and Cabana.

Mercedes Martinez might be a bit too edgy for WWE's audience. She's basically a latina skank who beats the shit out of people.

JD Maverick/Michaels has had a few near misses with WWE IIRC. He tagged with Teddy Hart vs. The Bashams on Velocity once, in a match where Doug (I think it was) started shooting on Teddy for trying to outshine the Bashams.
