Brooke Hogan The New Executive In Charge Of The TNA Knockouts – Official Press Release

- TNA issued the following press release tonight:

Television personality and recording artist Brooke Hogan is joining the cast of the highly-rated weekly wrestling program, TNA’s “IMPACT WRESTLING” starting Thursday, May 31 on Spike TV. Brooke’s role will be as the Executive in Charge of the female wrestling division, The Knockouts. Brooke will join a star-studded cast of the biggest names in professional wrestling, including her father, wrestling legend Hulk Hogan. TNA’s flagship series, “IMPACT WRESTLING,” telecasts on Spike TV and is one of the network’s top-rated series on Thursday nights with young men and currently ranks among the top shows on cable in its timeslot with Men 18-34.

In addition to overseeing the traditional duties of the Knockouts Division, Brooke will bring a new energy and direction to the role working with the girls in a variety of capacities.

“I have really gotten to know Brooke by working with her on her music career this past year and a half,” said Dixie Carter, President of TNA Wrestling. “When we did talk wrestling, I not only loved her passion and knowledge of it, but the fresh, creative ideas she would come up with. She is very savvy. I asked if she would consider teaming up with me in this capacity while she also worked on her music, and I was thrilled when she said ‘yes.’ A big personality runs in her genes, obviously, and I know she is going to take an already exciting division of Impact Wrestling to another level.”

Brooke is heading to New York next week for a media tour to promote her addition to the IMPACT WRESTLING team. Brooke will also promote “IMPACT WRESTLING’s” move to 8 PM and that the series will telecast LIVE for the summer starting Thursday, May 31. TNA’s 10th anniversary SLAMMIVERSARY pay-per-view-event is set for June 10th in Dallas, Texas.

The TNA roster features many of the top names in wrestling including the aforementioned Hulk Hogan, Jeff Hardy, Kurt Angle, Bobby Roode, Sting, James Storm, Rob Van Dam, and the lovely and lethal Knockouts.

Brooke Hogan, a native of Tampa, Fl, is a successful television personality, singer and songwriter. Brooke starred in two acclaimed non-scripted shows on Spike’s sister network, VH1, including “Hogan Knows Best” and the spinoff, “Brooke Knows Best.” Both were #1 rated shows for the network. Brooke has also released two albums, “Undiscovered” in 2006 which peaked at #28 on the Billboard Hot 100, and “The Redemption” in 2009. Her song, “Everything To Me,” peaked at #1 twice on Billboard’s Top Single Chart. Hogan’s film credits include “Little Hercules in 3D,” “Sand Sharks,” and “Devour.

    Please! Stop the insanity!

  • Brandon Ceielo

    Wow. That is a freakin' joke. What a failure. Didn't she claim she didn't even like wrestling on the reality shows she was in? "Passion and knowledge."

  • H.M.

    Anyone smell that?

    Smells like nepotism.

    • Abe

      just wait till they have garret win the "world" title with brook in his corner

    "Television personality and recording artist Brooke Hogan is joining the cast of the highly-rated weekly wrestling program, TNA’s “IMPACT WRESTLING” starting Thursday, May 31 on Spike TV."

    Highly rated seems like a but of a stretch here….good rating for Spike, but hard to say it's a highly rated wrestling program.

  • TJA

    This isn't what TNA needs in any way…

  • hurrigame

    RIP TNA. Can’t say it was nice knowing ya.

  • harry

    At least she'll be better than Karen Jarrett

    • Brandon

      For the love of God, I say it once and I may say it again; Karen Jarrett is better, light-years better than Brooke Hogan. As for TNA, I guess this will succeed, just like her singing career.

  • Brandon

    WoW this is going to be like her music and acting career right down the drain

  • Dave Barton

    I'm sure she got the job because of all her past experience as a successful booker of professional wrestling…

  • stoney

    Brooke and Garrett Bischoff would make an alright couple, two untalneted offspring only getting jammed down our throats because of their fathers

  • Terra Ryzing

    Has Brooke even wrestled before? Who the hell is she to be consulting actual wrestlers like Gail Kim, Tara, Mickie, Velvet, Winter etc….good grief.

  • Jake

    They should just re-name TNA "The Hogan and Bischoff Family Hour Show".

  • http://thebadgersden.co.uk sdunne87

    I bet Vince is pissed that he missed out on this signing.

    • evangrove

      Haha he has to be upset about it. How could he lose out on her of all the talent out there?

  • ZackPack

    LOLTNA

  • John rega

    And thats why I stopped watching TNA when Hogan and Bishoff came in

  • Ellen Brennan

    Dixie needs some serious help. Nobody can be this out of contact with the real world. Another leech! Just what TNA needs.

  • http://www.impactwrestling.com/ OneShotDeal

    It's no fun being an anti-TNA troll anymore when TNA are better at it than the rest of us…..

    Also, Steiner sees the future!

  • Brandon

    Did have she done to the wrestling industry to deserve THIS?

  • jus2cme

    Tna is a shame. Next hulk son will be in charge of transportation.

    • stoney

      I wish i knew who you were so I could give you a high 5

  • A.C.

    ODB and EY had better lookout! Brooke and Garrett will be after their tag team belts.

  • Matt

    Cornette Face

  • Alex

    Wow, and we were worried that Hogan would give her the TNA knockouts title. This is way worse. Exactly what qualifications does she have in wrestling. She admitted in her own words that she hates the sport and knows nothing about it outside of her father and now she's in charge of it.

  • Kevin

    We really should give her a chance to ruin TNA before we actually start saying she did. LOL. Seriously, though, what does she bring to the table for this position? Does she have experience? NO. Has she ever wrestled in a professional capacity? NO. Does she know a wristlock from an anklelock? Possibly, but not because of her father's training. All in all, if this were the "real world", and she presented her resume to apply for a position like this, the executives in charge of filling that position would have thrown it in the trash and not even talked to her. She's getting this position for one reason, and one reason only: HER FATHER!

  • MonstaHeel 450

    Is this the suprise theyre giving us on the 31st? LMFAOOL&P!!!! Really !!! Because Amy Dumas is still too busy on her retirement?? Geez Louis. Havent Hogan and Bischoff done enough damage to these org's? If they bring back Lacey Von Erich as a BFF for Brooke, It's The New Legacy, and it's all over. Dark clouds a'comin yall….

  • TNA_fan

    As if Hogan wasn't enough now Brooke, who next Nick? TNA should be a half hour show they are going to lose viewers at this rate.
