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.

Dammit there goes any chance of Aries ever getting in to the WWE
I wouldn't go that far. WWE know who he is now (not that they didn't before) and that he wants a WWE contract. They simply didn't want to put him on Tough Enough.

Besides, isn't he contracted to some indie company? That may be a part of the reason, because he'd have to make up the dates he missed while in the house (and risk spoiling his elimination) which would delay his return to WWE TV if he won.
