Dana Brooke is one pretty ass-kicker on Monday Night Raw. Brooke is a rising star on the red brand’s women’s division. She’s a multi-time bodybuilding champion who has translated her power-lighting physique to the wrestling ring.
She was born Ashley Mae Sebera on November 29, 1988, in Seven Hills, Ohio. Sebera attended Kent State University, where she earned a degree in fashion, merchandising, and design. After graduating college in 2011, Sebera set her sights on bodybuilding and, eventually, professional wrestling.
In June 2013, she was signed onto WWE’s developmental league NXT under the ring name of Dana Brooke. On September 11, 2014, she made her first appearance in a wrestling ring at NXT TakeOver: Fatal 4-Way during a backstage segment with future SmackDown star Tyler Breeze.
Brooke made her official televised in-ring debut on April 15, 2015, defeating Blue Pants, and solidifying herself as a villain on the NXT roster…
While in NXT, Brooke developed a partnership with “Evil” Emma. This duo eventually made their Monday Night Raw debut. But just one week later, Emma became sidelined with an injury. This left Dana is looking for her better half. She looked to “The Queen” Charlotte Flair for refuge, and helped her retain the WWE Raw Women’s Championship at Extreme Rules 2016.
But Brooke eventually got tired of Charlotte’s constant verbal abuse. Dana simply had enough of Charlotte’s sh*t. She cut ties with “The Queen,” and now Ms. Brooke is her own woman once again on the Monday Night Raw roster.
