Multiple sources are reporting that TNA has released Brooke Hogan. This is the latest in an ongoing series of cost-restructuring moves by the company.
Her release is surprising if only because her father, Hulk Hogan, is seen as such an asset to the company. Dixie’s desire to keep Hulk happy made Brooke Hogan seem untouchable. On the other hand, Brooke’s TV role in TNA had played itself out. She was the former head of the knockouts division, and most recently played Bully Ray’s (kayfabe) wife.
Hopefully TNA will use this as an opportunity to re-establish itself. The multiple high-profile releases over the summer, most of which hit the active roster or road agents, left a black-eye on the face of the company. Cutting unnecessary “name-only” talent seems like the most logical next step.
Dixie Carter has yet to release an official statement.
