Dana Brooke has endured plenty of hardships throughout her WWE career.
Dana has been put in multiple roles during her time in WWE, from being a statistician with Titus Worldwide to her confrontation with Ronda Rousey to her random tag teams with Lacey Evans and Carmella. Each time it looked like she was gaining traction, things came to an end.
Speaking to Lilian Garcia on Chasing Glory, Dana explained her frustration with the stop and start pushes in WWE.
"It makes me emotional because I know I can do this. I hate the start-stop. I hate it because it makes me excited....what am I excited for if it's always start and stop? Why can't I go and run with something? Why can't I go and show the world and show people backstage that I can do this? It always starts out, 'Oh, you want to do Titus Worldwide and be the statistician?' Okay. I never complain or ask for things. I always do what is asked of me, thinking it will get somewhere. Then it's like, 'No.' Going out there and cutting a heartfelt promo to the fans with Ronda Rousey, it was everything and a great opportunity. Then I was injured and not able to perform and carry that story anymore. Sitting on the sidelines and being like 'maybe another time will come.' I'm such a team player and WWE girl that anything I do, I try to do things and talk about how good the company is. It is, in general, and I'm always trying to put WWE on a platform, but what am I getting from it? I'm trying to be the best possible person I can be, but there's nothing behind it to drive me to that next point. I try not to get my hopes up," she said.
Brooke is currently in a tag team with Mandy Rose.
