This stunning Diva was born Brooke Nichole Adams on December 4, 1984 out of her native St. Louis, Missouri. In her early years, she moved to Houston, Texas and she engaged in track, rugby, basketball and volleyball in her high school years.
She then became a model, vying to become Miss Hooters and Miss Swimsuit USA.
She had entered a competition to be part of the 2006 Divas Search and lost, however nonetheless she was chosen to partake in the WWE developmental territory, Deep South Wrestling (DSW).
She was initially the valet for Daniel Rodimer and later stepped into the ring to fight Angel Williams to a loss.
In early January 2007, she became part of the faction Extreme Expose on ECW (Extreme Championship Wrestling) with co-horts Kelly Kelly and Layla. She would actively pursue the Miz along with her sisters. She mocked fellow Exposé member Kelly Kelly when Kelly exposed her romantic interest in Balls Mahoney.
Brooke participated in a Diva’s Battle Royal to determine the number one contender to Candice Michelle’s WWE Women’s Championship, but was eliminated by Victoria.
Adams would later partake in an ECW/WWE/WCW Halloween Battle Royal in 2007 on Raw to losing efforts.
In 2010, she appeared on Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action (TNA) as a personal assistant to Eric Bischoff under the name of Miss Tessmacher. She was immediately put in charge of the TNA Knockout Girls and soon became power drunk, eventually berating the girls.
She then appealed to “The Beautiful People” (Angelina Love & Velvet Sky) to become a wrestler under their training, but nothing ever materialized.
She then lost a shot at the TNA Knockouts Tag Team Championship as well as at her shot for the TNA Knockout Champion to Mickie James.
Tessmacher joined forces with Tara, collectively called TNT, and won the TNA Knockouts Tag Team Championships from Rosita and Serta. The two would defend the title for less than four months before losing to Gail Kim and Madison Rayne.
Tessmacher would then make multiple attempts at Kim’s TNA Women’s title in singles competition to losing efforts.
In June 2017, Tessmacher won the TNA Knockout Championship by defeating Gail Kim. She successfully held the title for 63 days before dropping it to Madison Rayne. A mere 4 days later, Tessmacker would regain the title from Rayne for a second run as champ.
Tessmacher would then hold the title for 59 days before dropping the strap to former TNT mate Tara. Tessmacher was unable to win the crown after several attempts and then took a 4-month leave of absence from in-ring competition.
Tessmacher re-appeared on TNA as a girlfriend to Bully Ray (Bubba Ray Dudley) as part of the heel “Aces and Eights” stable, including Mr. Anderson and D’Lo Brown. She had some success after defeating Velvet Sky to become number one contender for the TNA Women’s Championship, but she was never successful at gaining the gold. At the end of 2014, Bully Ray broke up with her and she disappeared from the scene for 6 months thereafter. When she returned, she was a face and made peace with Bully Ray on television. She then left again to partake in the Amazing Race reality show along with boyfriend Robbie E.
From 2012 to present, Tessmacher appeared in the indepdpent promotion Family Wrestling Entertainment to no significant career milestones.
She returned to TNA Impact Wrestling in 2015 and started feuding with her now ex-boyfriend Robbie E who would interfere in her matches and cause her to lose. Brooke would eventually end up beating Robbie in an intergender match-up.
She then made a few unsuccessful attempts to wrest the Women’s Championship until finally in July she won the TNA Women’s Championship for the third time by defeating Taryn Terrell. She would successfully defend the title for 2 months after dropping it Gail Kim during a fatal 4 way also including Awesome Kong and Lei’D Tapa.
Tessmacher would leave TNA at the end of 2015 as she was pregnant. She still could not fully leave her love of the squared circle and the happy mom returned in 2017 with wins over Sienna and Deonna Purrazzo.
Tessmacher certainly has had a rich career in wrestling, much moreso in TNA than the WWE. She is an active member of the current TNA roster and appears to be championship bound for the fourth time!
