Brooke Hogan has been released by TNA wrestling as part of an on-going effort to cut expenses. Hogan had been in charge of the Knockouts Division and was involved in an angle with Bully Ray where the two had a bogus wedding. Hogan's release on Friday came as a surprise to some and left others wondering if her infamous father Hulk Hogan would soon be released as well.
Brooke has seen a number of her ventures fail including a reality television show, a faltering music career and now her wrestling career.
TNA has come under fire for their recent blunders that saw a number of wrestlers not be able to perform due to licensing issues in Missouri, cutting popular wrestlers like Crimson and Tara and the public relations disaster that was the release of Jesse Sorenson.
A number of fans have called out TNA CEO Dixie Carter on Twitter and Facebook but she has refused to answer questions that she deems "hurtful" or "hateful."
With the company losing money, Direct TV dropping their taped PPVs and with fans and wrestlers alike wondering how long the company will remain viable, TNA is in a vulnerable position. Recent additions to the roster of MMA stars Rampage Jackson and Tito Ortiz have not been received well and the failure of King Mo as an in-ring performer are just more examples of TNA losing direction.
Eric Bischoff was recently placed in control of creative and though it is said he will not be writing he will be supervising. Bischoff was largely blamed for the failure of WCW, which collapsed and was sold to the WWE after losing $60 million in a quarter.
Kurt Angle entered rehab after his fourth drunken driving arrest and his story was picked up by national news outlets bringing even more bad publicity to TNA.
While many say TNA is having "growing pains" others say the flame on the candle is about to go out.
