WWE reportedly plans to mount a major push for Dana Brooke as its next heavily-featured WWE Diva.
The Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer reports that WWE boss Vince McMahon is a big fan of Brooke and plans to build her up as a “female Roman Reigns” within the WWE promotion.
WWE has seen a renewed investment and development of its Women’s Division over the last year.

Brooke (real name Ashley Mae Sebera) is 27-years-old and was born on November 29, 1988 in Seven Hills, Ohio.
She was a gymnast but after breaking both of her ankles she gave it up and instead moved into being a fitness model and female bodybuilder. From 2011 to 2012, Brooke held several championships within the National Physique Committee (NPC), before earning her International Federation of BodyBuilding & Fitness (IFBB) pro card in 2012. She then placed 12th at the 2013 European Arnold Classic, and was 13th at the 2015 Arnold Sports Festival held in Columbus, Ohio.
WWE Wrestling Career
Brooke was signed to a contract with WWE in 2013 and was put into their NXT training program. Her first TV appearance was at the NXT TakeOver: Fatal 4-Way event which aired on September 11, 2014.
As a heel (bad guy) Brooke then began appearing on the NXT program.
In May of 2016, Brooke began appearing on WWE Raw, still as a heel. She teamed up with fellow NXT diva Emma. At the recent Money in the Bank PPV event, Brooke and Charlotte defeated Natalya and Becky Lynch.
Nicknamed “The Total Diva,” her finishing move is the “Samoan driver,” and she also performs moves like Bodyscissors, Enzuigiri, and the Fireman’s carry slam.
