Steve Austin set to host the return of Tough Enough

EW has learned exclusively Tough Enough, the back-from-the-dead WWE reality contest series, has its new host: Stone Cold Steve Austin. The show will premiere April 4, after Monday Night Raw.

Sigh. I was so hoping there’d be some way to get Al Snow back, but I guess I will just have to, er, toughen up. Steve Austin is one of the WWE’s crossover stars — even non-wrestling fans like me are pretty familiar with him, and he obviously has plenty of on-screen experience. What I liked so much about Snow as the mentor, though, was his ability to turn off that in-ring persona and be a strict teacher, a focused father figure, and occasional goofball. I’m hoping Austin has that same knack, and isn’t just Stone Cold Steve Austin TM with his mentees; I hope sometimes he’s just a regular dude.

Does the presence Stone Cold Steve Austin make you more likely to tune in, PopWatchers?

    Oh hell yeah!!! If austin is the host… Who gonna be the trainers? I think Chavo should be considered since he has been in the past. I would also think John Morrison since he was the last “winner” left

    I will watch it regardless, but its going to be bad compared to the first two seasons, the new coaches are going to be one of the reasons. Cant be Snow and Holly. Cant remember if he was a coach back then but either way bring in Bill DeMott.

    Um, Al Snow is under contract to TNA. Why would he leave that to go to work for Tough Enough?

    And I’m still curious who the trainers will be.
