Ash By Elegance hits out at critics

Dana Brooke, aka Ash by Elegance, is newly announced as a member of TNA Wrestling. At the TNA Hard to Kill event, Dana Brooke made her debut after being released from WWE in September due to the Endeavour merger. The campaign took a fortunate turn with the January 13, 2024, pay-per-view, which attracted a lot of attention due to its high live attendance and gate.

According to an interview she gave after Hard to Kill, the mood backstage was very energetic, with members of the roster and special guests like Will Ospreay clearly enjoying themselves.

But things unexpectedly turned worse when Ash By Elegance received criticism for her new appearance in the ad. She hasn’t even wrestled or spoken yet, but many have been comparing her to Toni Storm, the current AEW Women’s Champion, because of her short hair and vintage look. So, she took to social media to confront the criticisms.

She tweeted, “Relax everyone … it’s a hair style… I haven’t cut a promo, or stepped 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 talking about me.”

Dana said she felt unappreciated by WWE after her dismissal. Coworkers like T.J. Wilson encouraged her and believed in her, but she still felt unappreciated and stuck in situations that didn’t allow her to shine. As an example of her gymnastics experience, Dana recalled an incident that occurred in 2018 or 2019 when she suggested a new location for the Money in the Bank event. However, she believed that WWE didn’t believe in her ability and that her ideas weren’t taken seriously.

Oh, hi, this is Md Robin Ahmed, a WWE fan and I everyday go through a slew of popular WWE stories on Sportszion. Watching Big Show's Showstopper was the beginning of my passion for WWE, though I have to say that his Chokeslam is not one of my favorite moves. Over time, my love for professional wrestling has intensified, mostly due to the Shield, and my all-time favorite wrestler in WWE is Big Dog. I would give everything to be able to be within a few feet of him to witness his iconic Superman Punch and Spear. My major is engineering, but I'm most happy when I'm doing something artistic that doesn't put me under any pressure. Watching them wrestle and discuss their matches is always fun for me. And I've finally discovered a career that gives me fun since it allows me to with my dream heroes lifestyle. So, Welcome! I'd love to hear from you on LinkedIn and Facebook.
