UPDATE: PWInsider is reporting that Brooke’s release happened on Tuesday or Wednesday, and was a cost cutting measure.
The article states that the daughter of Impact Wrestling’s General Manager, Hulk Hogan, was “fired”.
The report also says that the WWE’s roster knew of the news on Thursday – a tidbit we don’t yet know the relevance of.
Brooke joined TNA back in May 2012 and has assumed the on-screen authority position of Vice President of the Knockouts Division ever since.
She appeared in high profile storylines, such as her romantic angle with Bully Ray, who eventually turned on Brooke after it became apparent that he was only using her to get himself – and the Aces & Eights faction that he was secretly running – into a position of power. The storyline even saw the two marry in a segment that aired in January of this year.
Diva Dirt will have more on this story when it becomes available.
