TNA Wrestling announced Thursday that Brooke Hogan, daughter of wrestling legend Hulk Hogan, has joined the organization. She will serve as the Executive in Charge of the Knockouts Division and will debut on the May 31st episode of IMPACT WRESTLING – the first night that Impact goes live every wee.

TNA sent out the following announcement:

BROOKE HOGAN TO JOIN TNA’S “IMPACT WRESTLING” ON SPIKE TV STARTING THURSDAY, MAY 31

New York, NY, May 17, 2012 – Television personality and recording artist Brooke Hogan is joining the cast of the highly-rated weekly wrestling program, TNA’s “IMPACT WRESTLING” starting Thursday, May 31 on Spike TV. Brooke’s role will be as the Executive in Charge of the female wrestling division, The Knockouts.

Brooke will join a star-studded cast of the biggest names in professional wrestling, including her father, wrestling legend Hulk Hogan. TNA’s flagship series, “IMPACT WRESLTING,” telecasts on Spike TV and is one of the network’s top-rated series on Thursday nights with young men and currently ranks among the top shows on cable in its timeslot with Men 18-34.

In addition to overseeing the traditional duties of the Knockouts Division, Brooke will bring a new energy and direction to the role working with the girls in a variety of capacities.

“I have really gotten to know Brooke by working with her on her music career this past year and a half,” said Dixie Carter, President of TNA Wrestling. “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.”

Brooke is heading to New York next week for a media tour to promote her addition to the IMPACT WRESTLING team. Brooke will also promote “IMPACT WRESTLING’s” move to 8 PM and that the series will telecast LIVE for the summer starting Thursday, May 31. TNA’s 10th anniversary SLAMMIVERSARY pay-per-view-event is set for June 10th in Dallas, Texas.

The TNA roster features many of the top names in wrestling including the aforementioned Hulk Hogan, Jeff Hardy, Kurt Angle, Bobby Roode, Sting, James Storm, Rob Van Dam, and the lovely and lethal Knockouts.

Brooke Hogan, a native of Tampa, Fl, is a successful television personality, singer and songwriter. Brooke starred in two acclaimed non-scripted shows on Spike’s sister network, VH1, including “Hogan Knows Best” and the spinoff, “Brooke Knows Best.” Both were #1 rated shows for the network. Brooke has also released two albums, “Undiscovered” in 2006 which peaked at #28 on the Billboard Hot 100, and “The Redemption” in 2009. Her song, “Everything To Me,” peaked at #1 twice on Billboard’s Top Single Chart. Hogan’s film credits include “Little Hercules in 3D,” “Sand Sharks,” and “Devour.”

      how much photoshopping did that photo take.

    • Derp

      Nobody wants to see this no talent skank in TNA.

    • ExtremeWreslingFan

      The last paragraph made me laugh so hard, I farted. It said that, Brooke Hogan is a successful T.V. Personality, Singer and Songwriter? So is Ke$ha.

      • Gambit

        I agree last thing I heard regarding her singing career her pops was trying to pawn her CD onto P.Diddy.

        • Wrestlehead

          You’ve just described the whole issue perfectly. Her Dad leads her around by the nose and does everything for her. Her involvement with TNA is yet another glorious example.

    • Wrestlehead

      People were complaining quite a bit before about the air time Garrett Bischoff was getting thanks to his Dad being on the show. I can only imagine what the uproar will be over this once more people see this story.

    • Gambit

      and yet heres another reason why not to watch TNA now

    • mistico

      Might as well get David Flair back too! Garrett Bischoff, Brooke Hogan, and David Flair as a stable!

    • Kage

      *Hangs self*

    • The_Real_PETER

      What is this? Really? That’s another non-wrestler that TNA has to pay triple than the rest of their roster. Might as well give David Flair a call for a possible stable with Brooke and Garret.

    • Broski

      I think Brooke Hogan in 2012 looks like Hulk Hogan already. Is TNA becoming a joke?

      • Irate Fan

        TNA has been a joke since Bound For Glory 2010.

        • dan

    • Eric

      Brooke Hogan and Garret Bischoff new wrestling power couple. They’ll take over TNA.

    • Brooke Hogan is a Slut

    • s7eventhson

    • darkpatriot85

      How much do you wanna bet that if she gets paid more than the other roster there will be a bunch of walk-outs? It’s only a matter of time.

    • OhComeOn

      Jesus Christ. Just when I thought they had a chance with going live.

    • #HEEL
