Former Tough Enough competitor ZZ Loupe was released by WWE on Thursday morning, according to Pro Wrestling Sheet.

Loupe was one of the most popular competitors on Tough Enough and finished second on the show. Josh Bredl, who now goes by the name Bronson Matthews in NXT, won the reality show. In recent months, ZZ had lost a lot of weight to get in shape for the Performance Center.

Loupe made his NXT in-ring debut back in March. As of this writing, there’s no word on why WWE released him but there's been talk of more releases coming. WWE has hired several names from the independent scene in the last few months and they have offered deals to several of the competitors in the Cruiserweight Classic and some former talent so I wouldn't be shocked if they cut more names from developmental.
