— TNA sent out a press release today, discussing when Brooke Hogan will start with the company (May 31st on the live IMPACT) and Dixie Carter’s thoughts on hiring her. Here are some comments from that press release… “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.”
