"Don't mess with Tess, baby!"
Brooke Nichole Adams (born December 4, 1984) is an American model and professional wrestler best known for her time in TNA under the names Brooke or Brooke/Miss Tessmacher. A former Miss Hawaiian Tropic winner, she previously worked for WWE from 2006-2007 as a member of the Extreme Exposé dance troupe with Kelly Kelly and Layla. She is a former two-time TNA Knockouts Champion and one time Knockouts Tag Team Champion with Tara.

She also appeared on the 25th season of The Amazing Race in 2014 along with her then boyfriend, Robbie E, a fellow TNA wrestler.

Asstastic Tropes

  • Aborted Arc: She was released shortly after she and Layla turned heel on Kelly Kelly.
  • Alternate Company Equivalent: It could be just a coincidence that she started using the stinkface in her matches after Kelly Kelly was doing it in WWE. And on the flipside, Layla started doing it as well when she was a face.
  • Amazonian Beauty: Looks like a regular girl until she flexes. She was actually persuaded by her agent to stop modelling for being too ripped.
  • Arch-Enemy: Tara in TNA, after being betrayed by her.
  • Ass Kicks You: Her signature move, "Asstastic" a running hip attack to a seated opponent, followed by a stinkface.
  • Breakup Breakout: She was The Jannetty initially as she was released by WWE in 2007. Kelly Kelly was the most popular diva on the roster, she and Layla would go on to become Divas' Champions, and Layla would be the last ever Women's Champion until it was revived in 2016. However Brooke eventually subverted this by becoming Knockouts Champion, arguably the best wrestler of the three, and the only one still active since Kelly and Layla have now retired, essentially becoming the Michaels of the group.
  • Bare Your Midriff: More often than not.
  • Behind the Black: After beating Jade, despite Marti Belle's interference on an addition of Impact, she and Rebel were somewhere around the locker room celebrating. The second Brooke happened to be off camera the Dollhouse stormed in and gave Rebel an extended beating with Brooke nowhere in sight. It's possible she just ran away, but unlikely since it was just established Brooke could handle them even with a numbers advantage.
  • Biker Babe: After taking the role of Bully Ray's valet.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The redhead (well light brown) in Extreme Expose.
  • Boobs-and-Butt Pose: Pretty much her signature pose.
  • Buxom Is Better
  • Canon Name: All three of them, at various points in her TNA career:
    • Started without "Brooke" after being hired as Eric Bischoff's secretary.
    • Dropped "Miss" and regained "Brooke" when she became a regular wrestler.
    • Went back to "Miss" when Brooke Hogan was hired.
    • Returned "Brooke" when Brooke Hogan left and dropped "Tessmacher" after performing a heel turn and becoming the valet of Bully Ray.
  • Expy: of Lex Luthor's assistant in Superman: The Movie, name and all.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Became Bully Ray's valet after he was revealed to be the president of Aces & Eights.
  • Finishing Move: The Tess-Shocker, a Belly-to-Back facebuster. Sometimes an elbow drop from the top rope too.
  • Girl Posse: Extreme Expose.
  • Girly Bruiser: Half her offence is based around her ass, but she still kicks plenty of it.
  • Good Is Not Nice: She's kind of bitchy, even when playing a face.
  • Hair Flip: As part of her entrance.
  • Heel–Face Return: Returned from filming The Amazing Race as a face, after Robbie E insulted her.
  • Hotter and Sexier: After her Face–Heel Turn.
  • Informed Ability: It was fairly obvious she and Kelly Kelly had no dancing training.
  • Male Gaze: She considers her butt to be her best asset no pun intended and is pretty much the focus of every photoshoot she does.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Have we mentioned her fantastic ass yet?
  • Put on a Bus: Announced her departure from TNA in November 2015.
  • One Steve Limit: Went back to being called Miss Tessmacher after the controversial hiring of Brooke Hogan. Subverted in that other wrestlers and even Brooke Hogan herself still called her Brooke. Now that Brooke Hogan is gone, she reclaimed her first name.
  • Sexy Secretary: Was introduced as the personal assistant of Eric Bischoff.
  • Shaking Her Hair Loose: Would come out to the ring with her hair in a bun, and would shake it out as she entered. Along with removing her glasses too.
  • Signature Move, The aforementioned Asstastic as well as a diving elbow drop.
  • Spiritual Successor: Her Miss Tessmacher character was an obvious one to Stacy Keibler's Ms Hancock.
  • Tag Team: TNT with Tara
  • The Three Faces of Eve: In Extreme Expose - Kelly was the child, Layla the wife and Brooke the seductress.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Initially appeared in TNA as a secretary - and had been only a dancer in WWE. She eventually transitioned to wrestler and won a couple of titles.
  • Vocal Dissonance: She has a pretty low-pitched voice for a model. She is from Texas, though.
  • You Can Leave Your Hat On: Her entrance evoked this - untying her hair, removing her glasses and taking off a coat.

Alternative Title(s): Brooke Tessmacher, Miss Tessmacher
