After being released from WWE in September last year, former Superstar Dana Brooke took some time before making notable comeback at TNA’s Hard to Kill event. In fact, she has now admitted that she felt like a toy sitting on the shelf during her time in WWE.

While speaking to Wrestlesphere, Ash By Elegance shared her experience working with wrestling promotions and discussed the importance of creative freedom in her career in WWE. This experience left her feeling unappreciated and frustrated.

“I felt as though I had a lot of creative ideas that I was eager to share, but often these ideas weren’t implemented, or worse, they were given to someone else.”

Elegance noted that TNA appreciated their collaborative spirit, noting that, in TNA, talent could pitch ideas, and if everyone was comfortable, they’d pursue those concepts. If not, they’d find an alternative. She added that she felt like a toy sitting on the shelf during her time in WWE.


“It wasn’t about money. It was about feeling like a toy on a shelf for too long. I wanted to come out and give it my all, with great creative freedom, and explore new opportunities.”

Ash by Elegance leveled accusations against Tiffany Stratton and backtracked on her comments shortly after. We will have to wait and see whether Ash by Elegance will eventually become a champion in TNA somewhere down the line.
