TNA Wrestling announced Thursday that Brooke Hogan, daughter of wrestling legend Hulk Hogan, has joined the organization. Beginning with the May 31 episode of IMPACT WRESTLING on Spike TV, she will serve as the Executive in Charge of the Knockouts division. The following press release was issued:

BROOKE HOGAN TO JOIN TNA’S “IMPACT WRESTLING” ON SPIKE TV STARTING THURSDAY, MAY 31

New York, NY, May 17, 2012 – 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 WRESLTING,” 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.”

    @yofits..That is fucking funny…Woo..Jillian Hall singers better than Brooke Hogan, Hell Stephanie McMahon sings better than Brooke Hogan..Sonte Cold Steve Austin Sings better.. and the list goes on and on…basically..Brooke Hogan and impact Wrestling, not a good idea..Go Back a few years and watch when WWE tried to peddle her ass to us..Her freaking video premired on RAW..

  • yofits

    Jillian Hall sings better than Brooke.

  • Andrew

    On a side note, i actually watched most of Impact this week and almost cried when they showed the old clips from the Slammiversary ppvs. That’s the TNA i fell in love with and miss and want back.

  • Andrew

    So what gives here? she failed miserably as a singer so now she wants to wrestle like daddy? Give me a break. As an above poster said, this is the final nail in the coffin for TNA.

  • grizz

    Brooke is a BIMBO and can’t sing. I see the second coming of David Flair. Nice move TNA you dumb asses. If you want to go broke this sure is the way to do it. DUMB ASSES!!

  • Angry Benny

    @kitrock fucking wow, I don’t know how many shots of Jack it would take me to fuck that nasty horseface sack of Play-Do, but that is freaking hilarious,
    You think when Brooke comes on TV she wont hog up the tv time? really?Daddy’s going to set her up to look like a brilliant genius on tv, take tv from real wrestlers, first garrett, then brooke, I almost went mad when Garret was in the Battle Royal and was one of the last 4 in there, LAST 4???? WTF, and its only going to get worst, I wish Bobby Roode, Austin Aries, AJ Styles would go over to WWE, they have an extra hour to work with, Fuck TNA,

  • Justin sane

    I think it’s sweet how daddy got her a job.

  • http://sherdogisgay.com The High & Mighty

    Ashley Menendez was that chicks name. Get her fucking sexy ass on TV. Somebody… do it

  • http://sherdogisgay.com The High & Mighty

    They should get Brooke’ fine ass friend from the show that she always ran with. She’s like half rican or some crap. IDK, but shes was finer then Brooke. Nick Hogan should have fucking kill himself in that car accident. Don’t bring him in, guud gawd almighty, no!

  • yofits

    Brooke Hogan is ugly. But yeah, I’d prolly do her if she offered.

  • Mark

    @kitrock..WOW

    @TNA. I agree to attempt to reserve judgement, the emphasis on ATTEMPT. I like several other fans on this site can see potential problems with bringing in Brooke Hogan. If TNA is really trying to have any credibility, TNA needs to concentrate on the wrestling and not try to be WWE style entertainment. If you make the claim that wrestling matters, or call your show IMPACT WRESTLING, then damn it fucking wrestle. The only time and I rpeat the only time you need to see General managers, executive administrators, owners, presidents or what ever they want to call themselves, is to either start tthe show to tell youi what is going to happen, or if something “REALLY” catastrophic happens. You know what, I just answered my own commet lol. The whole product is a catastrophy right now. I am out, but guys keep writing. Like i said in another post, you guys(the fans) are the only god thing about pro-wrestling right now. And if someone,..cough cough(kitrock)lol, wants to write some nast fan fiction there are sites that let you do it, but please TRY to keep it off this one.

  • scooter

    how does this reveal her role this article does not use the term “lockerroom bike” anywhere!

  • moo

    ……….Damn ^

  • kitkrock

    Brooke Hogan has the face of a horse and the body of a plastic dildo.

    But if she were naked in front of me, I’d suck the hell out of her huge fake tits, thrusts my penis in her vagina in and out for 30 minutes and release my semen inside. Then, I’d take my middle finger and shove it up her asshole, wiggle my finger, bring it out and put my finger in her mouth and let her suck the shit off my finger.

  • MJ

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    Why do you do this to us DIXIE!

  • poko

    Big deal, really. As long as she doesn’t wrestle, and doesn’t take too much attention away from the Knockouts.

    Anyone acting like the sky is falling because of this is overreacting. I mean, it COULD be awful, if they allow her to overshadow the talent, but I’m not going to declare a catastrophe until that happens. After all, the last TNA PPV was excellent, and there was zero Hogan/Bischoff on-screen involvement. I’m hoping they learned something from that.

    THE FINAL NAIL IN THE COFFIN

  • jimbo jones

    just when they go a step forward in the right direction…they take 2 back in the wrong direction. Not that it matters that much anyway though…the knockouts division is still better than the wwe divas division. Only thing is now they’ll have Brooke’s non-wrestling ass in an on air “authority figure” role and shes gonna have to actually act, which i prefer to watch grass grow than to attempt to watch her act. Seriously, how many people in the audience are gonna know anything about her besides the fact that she is hogans daughter. The worst thing is shes probably making more money than half of the tna roster doing this job because Dixie thinks the girl is a… ahem…”celebrity”!
    The live thing is a good step in the direction though and the new time slot might not hurt either. I remember when smack down came on at 8 on Thursdays, so its not like a wrestling show hasn’t been on in that time before. The storylines are actually getting better and there is less focus on hogan and pretty much none on bischoff now that hes off camera, which is more than i can say for wwe in recent weeks with john “I need a Ricola” laurenitis being on for a third of the show. Like i said before, the knockouts are a good women’s division and they will still put on some good matches regardless of the on-screen character that Brooke Hogan will portray. I just think its BS because she’s Hogan’s kid and they’ve already hired Bischoff’s son. As long as all of the focus is not on them, there should not be a problem. TNA has vastly started to improve over the last few months in my opinion, but they still have a ways to go!

  • ant

    alot of people stay bitchin about stuff they cant control like thats ridiculous

  • rabid

    Somedays i wonder if jeff jarrett smashed his… head against a wall… going what was i thinking

  • The Real CM Punks Promo

    Prediction: Brooke Hogan and Garret Bishoff to reproduce on a live TNA episode.

  • Best In The World

    And so TNA is now falling apart they will not be a promotion for them gaurentee in 3 years….reasons why tna is B.S.

  • BlaH

    I guess soon Nick will be incharge of the X Div. soon.
    The Bollea fam is gonna help in killing TNA.

  • BlaH

    First Bitchoff and his no talent son
    now Hogan and u know the rest.
    Dixie oh Dixie

    to quote Randy Orton
    STUPID! STUPID! STUPID!

  • V-R-A

    Looks like X-Pac’s prediction not too far off…

  • Frank

    Dixie is a business woman & Brooke is a failed singer looking for a paycheck. That’s my point! Sure Dixie doesn’t have any idea how to run a wrestling company but she does have training to run a company.

  • http://www.yahoo.com Uzoma Iwuagwu

    I need to know one thing: does Dixie Carter have enough experiences about running a wrestling promotion?!

  • Jon

    This is just funny news here. Sad that TNA turning into a WCW.

  • Sonny

    Wow brooke the authority figure over the knockouts but they fire Traci smh

  • 1919dpg

    dixie.. please just fold the company now. really, this is just wow. is carter serious? brooke is veery savy about wrestling? she must get it from her father.

    btw, doesn’t anyone else think brooke’s next venture will be porn?

  • 1919dpg

    WIN.. old man mcmahon is trembling in fear right now.

  • SYM
