Due to a change of plans, Tracy Brookshaw (professionally known as "Traci Brooks" of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling fame), 34, will not be gracing the pages of Playboy after all, let alone the cover of the magazine as previously planned. Instead, her nude pictorial will be released online.
Playboy sent out their September 2009 Cyber Club VIP Newsletter this morning to subscribers of the "Playboy Cyber Club" detailing the month's upcoming pictorials. It's noted that Brooks will be featured on the pay website later this month when her nude photos are released on the 17th.
Regarding Brooks, the newsletter noted the following: "Ever wanted to see a TNA wrestler's T & A? Here's your chance as Total Nonstop Action grappler Traci Brooks takes it all off, exclusively for Cyber Club members."
Playboy had opted to pull the female grappler from her scheduled appearance in the publication in favor of a tribute to the late Farrah Fawcett, who passed away this past June.
Had things gone as scheduled, Brooks would have been the first TNA Knockout ever to grace the cover and pages of Playboy. Brooks was indeed set to grace to the cover of magazine at one point as she told the UK's Sun newspaper a few weeks ago that she would appearing on the cover and going on a media tour in October promoting the issue.
