Yeah, the succes WWE had with Tough Enough is non-existant. You can debate other participants, but if you just look at the winners, it was a useless show.
NXT is almost the same story, but we at least had 1 impactfull winner, but that show had just an awful, awful format to begin with.
It looked good on the surface, but those 'comedy' or entertainment challenges really fucked up that show.
And yes, NXT is a internationally available show, but not because it's a web series, because it's only available on Hulu and that's an US only site and to actually watch it you have to shell out 7 or 8 dollars per month and I don't think millions of people have recently made an Hulu plus account, so the reach of that show in the US is almost non-existant.
It is also available internationally on TV, but that doesn't matter, because the only country that is really important for the WWE is the USA. All the other countries are just an extra income of rights fees.
