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.

Not to be confused with the actress of the same name.

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 began to do it as well when she was a face.
  • Amazonian Beauty: Looks like a regular girl until she flexes. Her agent actually persuaded her to stop modeling for being too ripped.
  • Arch-Enemy: Tara in TNA, after being betrayed by her.
  • Ass Kicks You: Her signature move, "Asstastic" is a running hip attack on a seated opponent, followed by a booty bump.
  • Behind the Black: After beating Jade, despite Marti Belle's interference on the addition to 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.
  • Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The redhead (well light brown) in Extreme Expose.
  • Boobs-and-Butt Pose: Pretty much her signature pose.
  • Canon Name: As she was only ever called Miss Tessmacher at first in TNA, fans took Brooke to be her kayfabe first name. This was confirmed when Tara referred to her as Brooke in a promo. A few months later she went by Brooke Tessmacher.
  • Everything is Big in Texas: While she herself isn't big, she's very tough and has a larger-than-life personality.
  • 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 And Eights.
  • Finishing Move: The Tess-Shocker, a Belly-to-Back facebuster. Sometimes an elbow drops from the top rope too.
  • Fur Bikini: Wore one while dressed as Jane of the Jungle for Cyber Sunday 2007's Halloween costume contest.
  • Girl on Girl Is Hot: When she and Tara were paired, they often kissed each other during their entrance. And that's not even getting into what she does to opponents in the corners of the ring, often grinding her crotch into their faces and acting like she's getting head or mashing her butt into them, to major pops from the audience.
  • Girl Posse: Extreme Expose.
  • Girly Bruiser: Half her offense 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.
  • I Have Many Names: Many variations of the same name. She was first using her real name in WWE, Miss Tessmacher when she first showed up in TNA, Brooke Tessmacher after a while, back to Miss Tessmacher and eventually just Brooke.
  • Informed Ability: It was fairly obvious she and Kelly Kelly had no dancing training.
  • Lovely Angels: Her tag team with Tara - named TNT - and they won the Knockouts Tag Team Championships.
  • 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. A booty pop was her usual contribution to Extreme Expose's routine.
  • Meaningful Rename: Going from 'Miss Tessmacher' to 'Brooke Tessmacher' marked a shift from secretary to the active wrestler.
  • 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.
  • Wearing a Flag on Your Head: In her 2012 push, her ring gear would feature the Texas flag on it.
  • 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
