Brian Danovich was a $1,000,000 Tough Enough Contestant who tore his pectoral muscle during try-outs, and still came back the next day to complete the obstacle course. John Laurinaitis recognized Danovich’s passion, and had agreed to sign him to a developmental contract for OVW at the time.
Around September 2005, WWE's website posted an announcement stating he had been released by the company.
