Source: Diva-DirtImpact Wrestling star Brooke Tessmacher joined the DD360 radio show talking about the great year she's had in the Knockouts division, including becoming an active in-ring performer and her Tag Team Championship run with Tara. She also talked about her WWE release, reveals the story of how she got into TNA for the first time, her tag team with Tara and much more. Here are some highlights:
On her time in WWE: "I had a lot of fun in WWE. I was training. At first they moved me out to Atlanta to learn how to wrestle. I mean, I was only there a month before I got brought up and I was full time on the road with Extreme Exposé [her dance group with Layla and Kelly Kelly]. We were dancing every week, and we had a few matches -- battle royals and stuff like that -- but I never got a chance to show there what I was learning back off the road."
"It was fun, but I wanted to wrestle then. It's great to go out there and be eye candy and an exhibitionist, and I got to work with Layla and Kelly, who are amazing and have gone way further and far beyond than what I think a lot of people would have thought, and they deserve every bit of it. But I never got to show that before I left, so that's what's great now in TNA. It's a great company. I love where I'm at, though. I wouldn't change it for the world. It was definitely an experience of a lifetime to travel with WWE."
On her WWE release being "expected": "It was expected. There were a few little issues then. It did suck because I didn't get to make the stamp that I wanted to. I was kind of unhappy about it. It's something that I don't talk about too much. I kinda knew it was coming, put it that way."
On how she joined TNA: "I did a wrestling appearance with a promoter and he asked me, 'Why don't you go to TNA? Those are the girls who know how to work'. It's all about how you can work in the ring. It's not all about t--s-and-ass and who can be the sluttiest. This is about going out there and showing their skills. We have the best of the best where we're at now."
"He gave me a number to call [TNA] and kind of set it up for me, and they said, 'Yeah, why don't you come out'. I was just like, 'Wow'. I never in a million years thought that I'd be doing it again. Then I started training, getting better and learning how to be a so-called 'wrestler' from a 'model'. [Laughs]"
"It really was out of the blue. It couldn't have been a bigger dream come true."
