Ash By Elegance, the former Dana Brooke, has officially crossed the line.

Following a surprise appearance at the promotion’s Hard To Kill pay-per-view on Saturday, January 13, Ash By Elegance has officially signed with TNA Wrestling.

Formerly known as Dana Brooke in WWE, Ash, flanked by George Iceman, was spotted in the audience ahead of Trinity’s Knockouts World Championship defence vs. Jordynne Grace. There, it was Grace who ended Trinity’s 182-day reign as champion, with Ash By Elegance’s debut signifying her own intentions of chasing the championship.

It is unknown officially how long her deal is for, although recent TNA signee Xia Brookside’s contract was revealed by Fightful Select to be three years in length. Expect a similar deal for Ash.

The 15-time WWE 24/7 Champion wasn’t the only surprise appearance at Hard To Kill, as Nic Nemeth, the former Dolph Ziggler, also made a shock debut, laying out newly-crowned TNA World Champion, Moose. Dubbed ‘The Most Wanted Man’, Nemeth was the major signing touted by TNA Wrestling President, Scott D’Amore.

Ash By Elegance: “I’m Ready For It”

Discussing her TNA debut on Busted Open Radio, Ash By Elegance described how determined she was to make a statement in the Knockouts division, believing that she was never given the right opportunities in WWE (H/T Fightful):

"You're going to see drive and determination and a side of me that people haven't seen. I had mentioned to people before in the locker room, when I was at TNA, 'I was never given the opportunity to show my true potential.' The one match I did where I really felt like I opened up was one of my last matches - the kendo stick match - and a match after that with the champion where I was able to bring out a different side of aggression and passion and things I felt like I was held back from because I was working 90-second matches. What can you do in that 90 seconds besides tell the story you're given to tell the story with?
I feel as though TNA is going to let me explore this side of me of who I truly am. I want to go the limit. I was the girl, when we were putting matches together in WWE, 'I want to do this. I want to go high flying, I want to dive onto a table and be hit in the back with a chair.' They're like, 'No, we'll get there; we'll build to it.' I was the one, 'Put me in coach, I'll do this and do that.' TNA is the place where I'll be able to do it. It's hardcore and I'm ready for it.”

It is currently unknown when Ash By Elegance will make her in-ring debut for TNA, having not wrestled at the company’s Snake Eyes tapings. TNA’s next set of television tapings are pencilled in for January 19 and 20 in Orlando, Florida. The current lineup can be found below:

  • Nic Nemeth vs. Trey Miguel
  • Trinity vs. Gisele Shaw
  • The System vs. Time Machine and Kevin Knight
  • Moose vs. KUSHIDA
  • Eddie Edwards vs. Alex Shelley
  • Josh Alexander vs. Alan Angels
  • Chris Sabin vs. Jason Hotch
