Brooke Nichole Adams[5] (born December 4, 1984)[1] is an American model and professional wrestler, currently working for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling as simply Brooke. She previously worked for World Wrestling Entertainment appearing with Kelly Kelly and Layla in the dance group Extreme Exposé on the company's former ECW brand. She is a former two-time TNA Women's Knockout Champion and a one-time TNA Knockouts Tag Team Champion with Tara, known collectively as TnT.[3]

Early life[edit]

For a time the family lived out of the mother's Daytona hatchback until they had enough money to afford an apartment. She played basketball, volleyball, track and rugby. She started doing bikini modelling and competed in pageants such as Miss Hawaiian Tropic, Miss Swimsuit USA and Miss Hooters. Her agent told her "You’re way too ripped to keep modeling. You need to go to the fitness side, or gain some weight and get softer and be a model."[6][7]

Professional wrestling career[edit]

World Wrestling Entertainment (2006–2007)[edit]

She first became involved in professional wrestling by trying out for the 2006 WWE Diva Search, for which she failed to make the top 8.[1] Despite not making the cut, Adams was chosen to observe workouts in "development territory" Ohio Valley Wrestling along with Maryse Ouellet, after which she was offered a developmental contract.

Adams in February 2007.

She accepted and was assigned to Deep South Wrestling (DSW) to train, starting as the valet for Daniel Rodimer.[1] When Rodimer was called up to the main roster, she was left without a wrestler and focused on becoming a full-time wrestler herself. She made her in-ring debut, a loss to Angel Williams, at a DSW TV taping in December 2006.[1] She continued working in DSW and during February she was (kayfabe) promoted to the position of Personal Assistant to General Manager Krissy Vaine, with her main job being to protect Krissy from Angel Williams. This eventually led to another match between Adams and Williams, as ordered by Vaine. At the March 15, 2007 DSW TV tapings, Adams was kayfabe fired from her position following Vaine and Williams' alliance together.[8]

On January 23, 2007 Adams debuted on the ECW brand, joining the returning Kelly Kelly and the newly drafted Layla in Extreme Exposé.[5] When Florida Championship Wrestling opened in the summer of 2007, Adams was transferred to the developmental facility for training, along with continuing her Extreme Exposé role.[9] Extreme Exposé performed a weekly dance segment on ECW for the next several months, as a successor to Kelly's Exposé segment a weekly dance segment on the ECW show for months[1] until The Miz was placed on the ECW brand in the annual WWE Draft Lottery, at which point all three ladies began actively pursuing him.[10][11][12][13] Later, Kelly shifted her attentions to Balls Mahoney,[14] to the amusement of The Miz and her Exposé sisters, who had been spending their time mocking his look which led her to turn into a heel character with Layla and The Miz later prevented her from going on a date with Mahoney, stating that he owned her contract and would fire her if she did so.[15][16][17] Brooke, along with the other ECW Divas, as well as SmackDown and RAW Divas, would compete in a Number-One Contender's Battle Royal for Candice Michelle's WWE Women's Championship at SummerSlam, but Brooke got eliminated early on by Victoria and with Kelly as the last ECW Diva standing, Beth Phoenix would ultimately win. Brooke's last match was a tri brand divas Halloween battle royal on the October 29, 2007 edition of Raw and even though she was eliminated early Kelly Kelly would eliminate Torrie Wilson and Victoria to get the win for ECW.

Just a couple days later on November 1, 2007, Adams was released from her WWE contract due to an "gimmick infringement" involving Melina about the furry black boots she wore as a part of her costume for the Halloween battle royal, seeing how Melina frequently does furry boots for her wrestling appearances.[18][19]

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling[edit]

Knockout's Division Commissioner (2010–2011)[edit]

Tessmacher as Eric Bischoff's assistant in July 2010.

On the March 29, 2010, edition of TNA Impact!, Adams made her Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) debut in a backstage segment as Eric Bischoff's assistant, under the name Ms. Tessmacher, named after Lex Luthor's girlfriend and assistant in the first two Superman movies.[3][20][21] On the September 30 edition of Impact! she was put in charge of the TNA Knockouts as Knockout's Law.[22] The position quickly went to her head and she began being verbally abusive to all of the knockouts. Just two weeks later Bischoff fired Tessmacher from her position as his assistant and Knockout's Law, after she had leaked important information about his plans to Kevin Nash and "The Pope" D'Angelo Dinero, stating that she needed to become a wrestler herself if she wanted to remain in TNA.[23] The following week, Tessmacher begged The Beautiful People to teach her how to wrestle, but they ultimately refused, due to the treatment they got from her when she was in control of the Knockouts division.[24] At the following Impact!, it was revealed that Lacey Von Erich of The Beautiful People had agreed to train Tessmacher to wrestle.[25] However, Von Erich would leave the promotion on November 11, ending the angle abruptly.[26]

On the December 16 edition of Impact! Tessmacher returned and made her TNA in–ring debut as Bischoff's hand picked partner for Mickie James in the first round match of a tournament for the vacant TNA Knockouts Tag Team Championship, in which they were defeated by then Knockouts Champion Madison Rayne and Tara.[27] On December 25 Adams suffered a broken jaw in an out–of–the–ring accident and had wires and metal plates put in her jaw as a result.[28] Tessmacher returned to TNA on the April 21, 2011, edition of Impact!, saying that during her time away from TNA she had been training to become the TNA Knockout Champion and that "Miss Tessmacher's back".[29]

On the May 5 edition of Impact!, she had her return match as she unsuccessfully challenged Mickie James for the TNA Women's Knockout Championship.[30] On May 12, she teamed with Mickie James against Tara and Madison Rayne in a successful effort pulling up the win with a victory roll against Rayne.[31] On the June 16 edition of Impact Wrestling, Tessmacher and Velvet Sky challenged Mexican America (Rosita and Sarita) for the TNA Knockouts Tag Team Championship, but were defeated following outside interference from Sky's rival, ODB.[32]

Championship reigns (2011–2013)[edit]

At the tapings of the July 21 edition of Impact Wrestling, Tessmacher and Tara defeated Rosita and Sarita to win the TNA Knockouts Tag Team Championship, Adams' first professional wrestling title.[33][34] On the August 4 edition of Impact Wrestling! Tessmacher got her first singles match victory, defeating Madison Rayne.[35] Tessmacher and Tara made their first title defense on August 7 at Hardcore Justice, defeating Mexican America in a rematch.[36] On the following edition of Impact Wrestling, Adams' ring name was switched to Brooke Tessmacher.[2] On October 20 edition of Impact Wrestling Tara and Tessmacher made their second title defence defeating Angelina Love and Winter.[37] On the November 3 edition of Impact Wrestling, Tessmacher and Tara lost the Knockouts Tag Team Championship to Gail Kim and Madison Rayne.[38] On the November 17 episode of Impact Wrestling, both members of TnT competed in a gauntlet match to earn a title match with the new Women's Knockout Champion, Gail Kim, but were both eliminated. Tessmacher was eliminated by Velvet Sky and Tara was eliminated by Mickie James who would go on to win the gauntlet match.[39]

After pinning Gail Kim on three occasions, Tessmacher was named the number one contender for her TNA Women's Knockout Championship.[40][41][42] On May 13, 2012, at the Sacrifice pay-per-view, Tessmacher failed in her title challenge against Kim, when Kim pinned her with her feet on the ropes.[43] Tessmacher received another shot at the title on the following episode of Impact Wrestling, but was again defeated by Kim in a three-way match, which also included Velvet Sky.[44] On the June 7 episode of Impact Wrestling, a week after Brooke Hogan's TNA debut, Adams' ring name was switched back to Miss Tessmacher. She then went on to defeat Mickie James, Tara and Velvet Sky in a four-way match to earn another shot at Gail Kim's Women's Knockout Championship.[45]

Three days later at the Slammiversary pay-per-view, Tessmacher defeated Gail Kim to win the TNA Women's Knockout Championship for the first time.[46] On the June 21 episode of Impact Wrestling Tessmacher made her first successful title defense, defeating Mickie James.[47] On the July 12 episode of Impact Wrestling, Tessmacher successfully defended her title in a rematch against Gail Kim.[48] On August 12 at the Hardcore Justice pay-per-view, Tessmacher lost the title to Madison Rayne, who had referee Earl Hebner on her side, ending her reign at 63 days.[49] Tessmacher regained the title from Rayne on the following episode of Impact Wrestling in a match refereed by the debuting Taryn Terrell.[50] On September 9 at the No Surrender pay-per-view, Tessmacher successfully defended the title against her TnT partner Tara.[51] On the following episode of Impact Wrestling, Tara turned on Tessmacher, officially ending TnT.[52] On October 14 at the Bound for Glory pay-per-view, Tessmacher lost the Women's Knockout Championship to Tara.[53] Tessmacher received a rematch for the title on the October 25 episode of Impact Wrestling, but was again defeated by Tara following an interference from her boyfriend Jesse.[54]

On January 13, 2013, at the Genesis pay-per-view, Tessmacher competed in a five woman gauntlet match to determine the number one contender to the TNA Women's Knockout Championship, but was eliminated by Gail Kim.[55] On the February 7 edition of Impact Wrestling, Tessmacher defeated Tara in a non-title match to earn another shot at the Women's Knockout Championship.[56] Tessmacher received her title opportunity in a four-way elimination match on the February 21 episode of Impact Wrestling, but was the second woman eliminated from the match by the eventual winner Velvet Sky, and also included Gail Kim and Tara.[57] On the April 18 episode of Impact Wrestling, Tessmacher was defeated by Mickie James in a number one contenders match for the Women's Knockouts Championship.[58]

Aces & Eights, various feuds (2013–present)[edit]

After a five-month absence, Tessmacher returned as a heel on the August 22 episode of Impact Wrestling, revealing herself as Bully Ray's girlfriend and joining the villainous Aces & Eights stable.[59] Tessmacher, now billed as Brooke, wrestled her return match on the October 3 episode of Impact Wrestling, defeating Velvet Sky in a number one contenders match for the Women's Knockout Championship.[60] On October 20 at the Bound for Glory pay-per-view, Brooke competed in a three-way match against ODB and Gail Kim for the Women's Knockout Championship. During the match, Lei'D Tapa attacked both Brooke and ODB, helping Kim to win the championship.[61][62] On the November 21 episode of Impact Wrestling, Brooke managed Bully Ray, who faced Mr. Anderson in a no disqualifications match. Anderson won the match, and as a pre-stipulation of the match, the Aces & Eights were forced to disband.[63] On the December 26 episode of Impact Wrestling, Brooke was seen backstage speaking to Bully Ray, who rudely threatened her, ending their relationship, turning Brooke face in the process.[64]

Independent circuit (2012)[edit]

On February 25, 2012, Tessmacher made her debut for Family Wrestling Entertainment (FWE), losing to fellow TNA Knockout Winter in the first round to determine the inaugural FWE Women's Champion.[65] Later that night, Tessmacher and TnT partner Tara helped Maria defeat Winter in the finals of the tournament, making this her last independent circuit appearance.[66]

Return to modeling[edit]

Since her release from WWE, Adams placed in the Hawaiian Tropic, Planet Beach, Darque Tan, and Bikini USA model search contests. At the 2006 Grand Prix of Houston, she won the local round for the Face of Champ Car beauty contest (with her duties later taken over by 1st Runner Up Angela Rutledge). Adams was crowned Miss Hawaiian Tropic Texas 2008 on November 8, 2008. In late 2010 she took part in the Hooters Texas Swimsuit Pageant Finals to determine seven Hooters girls who would go on to the 2010 International Hooters Swimsuit Pageant competition.[67][68] In August 2011, Adams announced that she was the winner of the Hooters' Viewers' Choice $10,000 award as advertised on the Hooters Swimsuit Pageant competition.

Other media[edit]

In April 2007, Adams, along with Ashley, Kelly Kelly, Layla El, Torrie Wilson, and Maryse, appeared in Timbaland's music video "Throw It On Me" featuring The Hives, which premiered on Raw on May 20.[69] In August 2007, Adams, along with Extreme Exposé, appeared on FHMOnline.com.[70] In June 2011, Adams was featured in a music video for Dorrough titled "Bounce Dat".
