WWE reportedly releases Tough Enough winner Sara Lee

According to Pro Wrestling Sheet, WWE has released past Tough Enough winner Sara Lee.

The 24-year-old was the female winner of the last incarnation of the show in June 2015, earning a $250,000 contract. She hadn't been heard from much during her training at the WWE Performance Center, save for a promo and appearance in a six-woman tag match earlier this year.

PWS said Lee learned of the news Friday, but no reason was given. However, Squared Circle Sirens writer Casey Michael tweeted a picture from Facebook that shows Lee and NXT wrestler Wesley Blake announcing a pregnancy.

The Michigan native became a fan favorite throughout the competition, helping her survive five eliminations.

Fellow Tough Enough alum ZZ was released earlier this summer. Male winner Bronson Matthews (Josh Bredl) is still under contract as is Mandy Rose who finished as a runner-up to Lee. Rose has already been on Total Divas and recently made her NXT in-ring debut.
