Recent WWE Tough Enough eliminated finalist, Patrick Clark, was interviewed by Scott Fishman of the Miami Herald about his elimination and what his future holds. Here is some excerpts from the interview:
On his elimination:
“My first thought was hopefully I could win a Slammy for Shocker of the Year, second thought was disappointment. I definitely didn’t think I should have been the one going home out of the bottom three, but it is what it is. You live and you learn…I feel like as far as that particular episode goes, the audience didn’t like the way I tried to motivate ZZ. It was understandable. I was pretty much the bad guy on the show. My confidence ended up being an error for me and proved to be my downfall.”
On the social media reaction to his elimination:
“I thought it would be more wrestling related, I don’t know if you saw what Mick Foley tweeted, but he said I made the mistake of thinking ‘Tough Enough’ was a wrestling show and not a reality show. I honestly did make that mistake. Five weeks was not enough time for me to fix it. It’s an honor to have Mick Foley and Jim Ross, two WWE Hall of Famers, not only notice the effort I put in for ‘Tough Enough,’ but to take time out of their schedules to comment on it. To know it meant so much to a guy like Mick Foley, who may not even watch the program anymore, it’s really a shock to me. That tells me he felt highly of me. That’s a blessing and an honor in itself.”
