– WWE Tough Enough contestant Jeremiah Riggs, who was eliminated last night, was interviewed by a local ABC affiliate in Mississippi today and seems to think that Andy will have a hard time beating Luke in next Monday’s finale. Regarding his future in wrestling, he said: “I really look at having a future in this business. I think my ability, my personality — I’m an entertainer. I think that I can excel at anything I do. I never would have dreamed in a million years that I would be where I am now. The people I’ve met, the fan base. I love interacting with the fans. I love interacting with new people. I can take lots of things from it. Being a part of something like that.”
