Brian Truitt of USA Today recently spoke with Triple H, Booker T, Chris Jericho and Hulk Hogan to promote the return of WWE Tough Enough. The full article and video with Booker T can be found at this link. Below are a few highlights:

Triple H on taking Tough Enough to the next level:

“Our athletes and performers make what we do look very easy because they’re very, very good at it. People lose perspective of how difficult it is. You ostensibly have the opportunity to see an icon 20 years from now at Wrestlemania where you can say, ‘I remember seeing the day that they walked into the Performance Center and ran drills and threw up in the garbage can.’”

Hogan on being a judge:

“I don’t want to be disappointing, I don’t want to be a bully, but honesty has to be the prevailing factor for the love of the business and picking the new superstar.”

Triple H on the most important quality from a performance standpoint – charisma:

“It’s the hardest thing to teach. It’s that guy who walks in the door and everybody stops and says, ‘Who’s that?’ It’s the girl who walks in and doesn’t have to be the hottest chick, but there’s something about her that you’re just like, ‘Wow, look at her.’ “
