Kenny King

Kenny King, 29, 6'0", 230#, was an also-ran in the second season (2002) of the MTV/WWE collaboration Tough Enough, a show I apparently enjoyed more than the critics did or, for that matter, the public (the show ran for just three seasons, plus a fourth on the now kaput UPN).  Although he didn't win a WWE development deal, after the show King pursued pro wrestling in the indies, at one point facing off with fellow reality star Mike Mizanin (The Real World: Back to New York and Season 4 of Tough Enough--now "The Miz" on WWE).  In 2007, King joined the Ring of Honor roster.  Today he wrestles solo and with partner Rhett Titus.  His September 11th one-on-one match against Jay Briscoe, 26, 6'0", 205#, was not as widely heralded as Roderick Strong's winning of the championship belt that night, but from the looks of these photos (by Scott Finkelstein), it was still one hot contest between two tough and ridiculously well-put-together competitors.  King won the match with a royal flush.
