Continuing the ongoing debacle that was the most recent (and almost certainly final) season of Tough Enough, this weekend WWE announced that they had released Sara Lee, who won the female side of the reality competition, earning a $250,000 contract alongside men’s champion Josh Brendl. Neither Lee nor Brendl (who now wrestles under the name Bronson Matthews, and created some controversy of his own by mocking WWE Superstars on Twitter) has appeared on WWE programming since winning the competition, although Mandy Rose, who finished as runner-up to Lee, did just appear on NXT in a match against Ember Moon. Another Tough Enough runner-up, ZZ, was also released by WWE earlier this year.
Lee also revealed on social media in a post that has since been deleted that she is expecting her first child, alongside current NXT Superstar Wesley Blake. It is unknown what role pregnancy may have played in her release.
