Ash By Elegance Wants To Enter The 2025 WWE Royal Rumble As The TNA Knockouts World Champion

Ash By Elegance wants to return to the women's Royal Rumble next year as the TNA Knockouts World Champion.

Ash By Elegance, formerly known as Dana Brooke in WWE, recently made her return to WWE as part of the crossover match between Roxanne Perez and Jordynne Grace at the WWE NXT Battleground event. She made a quick run-in, stopping Tatum Paxley from grabbing the TNA Knockouts World Championship and then getting knocked out by Grace for touching the title belt in the first place.

However, Ash has designs on winning the TNA Knockouts World Championship and then returning to the 2025 WWE Royal Rumble with the title to illustrate her growth since her WWE release. Grace, during a recent appearance on the Battleground Podcast, explained how much it hurt her to miss the 2024 WWE Royal Rumble as it was the first Rumble she's missed since the matches began in 2018.

"I love the idea of that," Ash when discussing appearing in the 2025 Royal Rumble. "Up until 2024, I was one of the very few, I think I was one of three or four, that had been in every single Royal Rumble. So it took a hit on my heart when I wasn't part of this last one. I think and I truly believe coming into 2025, being able to enter the Royal Rumble with the TNA Knockout Women's Title around my waist would be a huge accomplishment and every aspect of my life. Not only in WWE, not only in TNA but just me personally, knowing that I never gave up.

"I've always wanted to be a champion. Yes, that was a 15-time 24/7 Championship winner, but I just want to capture a title in TNA where they believed in me and I believed in them and I can represent it on the biggest stage of them all in the Royal Rumble."
