Who will be the next “Silent Rage” Andy Leavine? We’re one step closer to finding out, as the top 40 contestants for the new season of WWE’s Tough Enough have been named via

Tommaso Giannuzzi, Germany
Vinny Tortorella, Staten Island, New York
Zach Boss, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Zamariah “ZZ” Loupe, Bayou Bluff, Louisiana

Not included on the list? Everyone we wanted is on the show. No Keith Apicary running gauntlet matches and fighting Rikishi in his underwear, no Supercop Dick Justice pulling an invisible gun in the middle of a match, not even comedian Gabriel Iglesias being surprisingly threatening.

Zack Ryder’s pal made it, though:

If you don’t think The Big O is a ringer (and you can’t handle his heat), there’s already a reaction video from Ryder himself on WWE’s YouTube Channel. Seems pretty weird to bring in Big O three years after Ryder’s peak relevancy, but if there’s anything WWE needs more of, it’s marginally talented muscle guys who are here because they know people!

Here’s your tune-in information. I’m holding out that maybe I just don’t know the Supercop’s shoot name and he’ll be showing up anyway. Tough Enough needs a Grado.

The WWE Tough Enough mini-camp takes place Wednesday, June 10, through Friday, June 12, culminating with the announcement of the final 13 contestants, who will compete for one-year, $250,000 WWE Superstar and Diva contracts. The journey of the final 40 will be chronicled on a WWE Network exclusive, WWE Tough Enough Competition Special, which airs Tuesday, June 16, at 8 p.m./7 p.m. CST.
