Stone Cold Steve Austin commented on Twitter regarding reports of him hosting the returning WWE Tough Enough. As mentioned earlier, Entertainment Weekly first broke the news. Within a few hours later, WWE and USA sent out a press release confirming the news. He was considered — and obviously given the role — because the series will be taped in Los Angeles, and Austin is currently residing there for his movie roles. Here’s what Austin had to say about the gig: “Thanks for all of your congratulation tweets! I am very excited about hosting WWE Tough Enough. And that’s the bottom line cause I said so.”
