“Ash by Elegance is a different side of me, but I try to live my life every single day as being super elegant. Elegant is a word, but I feel like it has a variety and many multiple meanings. It’s classiness. It’s elegant. It’s beautiful. It just means so much that I’m definitely gonna bring that element into the ring and show everyone what class and elegance truly means.”
The former Dana Brooke also explained that she spoke with Mickie James and Trinity Fatu about joining TNA Wrestling before making her final decision.
“Trinity was a co-worker of mine back in WWE and I love the progression she had made. She was actually one of the girls I had spoken with. before making an appearance on TNA and she’s like, ‘Girl, this is the place for you. You have so much untapped potential that TNA will be able to bring it out in you.’ Another person that I had spoken with was Mickie James and Mickie was like, ‘This is the place. You have so much potential and TNA is gonna bring it out of you and you have a locker room of badass women to perform with.”
