Brooke Hogan is apparently following in her father’s footsteps as the singer has signed a contract to join Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling family, TMZ reported on Friday.
The recording artist is scheduled to join TNA’s “IMPACT WRESTLING” on Thursday, May 31, 2012 on Spike TV.
As the daughter of American wrestling sensation Terry Gene Bollea, better known by his ring name Hulk Hogan, Brooke certainly has the makings of a female wrestling diva. She’s scheduled to play the role of Executive in Charge of The Knockouts, the female wrestling division.
In order to promote her role in TNA’s highly-rated series, Brooke will attend a New York media tour next week. While promoting her new role overseeing the Knockouts Division, she’s also scheduled to promote Impact Wrestling’s move to 8 P.M. and the fact that the series will be telecast live this summer, beginning on Thursday, May 31.
The Tampa, Florida native is a successful singer, songwriter, and television personality who starred in two non-scripted series on VH1. Both shows, Hogan Knows Best and Brooke Knows Best, were #1 rated shows on the VH1 network, which is actually the sister network of Spike TV.
Dixie Carter, the President of TNA Wrestling, was quoted by ImpactWrestling.com having said:
“I have really gotten to know Brooke by working with her on her music career this past year and a half. 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 appears to be just as excited as Carter as she tweeted on Friday:
“Thank u so much for all your love and support! #blessed @TNADixie”
