Former WWE Superstar Dana Brooke was released from the company in September last year. She waited until the time was right and appeared at TNA Hard to Kill, where Brooke ended up making her debut. She was also accused of ripping off Toni Storm’s gimmick, and now Brooke decided to respond to these accusations.
Dana Brooke was fully dressed as a movie star, complete with her own manager as she is now known as Ash By Elegance. It was a brief appearance but definitely made enough impact.
Despite not having spoken or entered the ring, Ash By Elegance has faced criticism for her appearance. Fans have drawn comparisons to Toni Storm of AEW due to their similar hairstyles.
The former WWE Superstar took to Twitter and finally responded to accusations that she ripped off Toni Storm’s Timeless gimmick. Brooke noted that it was just a hairstyle and she hadn’t even cut a promo yet. Brooke also added that it’s still a good thing she got people talking about her.
”Relax everyone … It’s a hair style… I haven’t cut a promo, or step foot in the ring & y’all are hating… Lemme tell ya something, I like Toni Storm but respectfully, she will never be me & I’ll never be her!! But at least your (sic) talking about me. 💋🤷🏼♀️“
Ash By Elegance also signed contract with TNA Wrestling. Ash by Elegance also landed a sponsorship with Draft Kings for UFC 297, which is certainly a big deal. We’ll have to wait and see how she will fare in TNA in the coming weeks.
