Was Brodus Clay on the same season? If so, it appears as though Brodus took his spot. They spent all of that time building Brodus up an they could have spent that time making the crowd familiar with who Johnny Curtis was. My best bet would be that they will use him some time after Wrestlemania if he does not get the boot. I agree with my pal Rich.. It would suck to be him having had come out of NXT victoriously an then given the boot. Tough Enough is the coolest an 'best' show to get a character across to the fans. You should be fine on that show as long as you avoid shitting yourself. But, I think that only happened because that person was in the presence of Stone Cold.
