Dana Brooke hasn’t been on the main roster for more than a few weeks but management is already high on her. She is still green in the ring but she seems to be overcoming her shortcomings with her personality and she is pretty good with her promos. It probably doesn’t hurt that she has a background in bodybuilding since Vince McMahon and Triple H are huge bodybuilding fans.
The current plan for Dana Brooke and Charlotte is to eventually split them up so they could have a big program against each other. Earlier this week, Dave Meltzer noted that Vince McMahon is a big fan of Brooke and she’s being groomed to be the “female Roman Reigns.” It looks the company is giving her the ring time on the road because she’s been wrestling against Natalya, Paige and Becky Lynch at the live events.
Regarding Ric Flair’s status with the company, the split-up with Charlotte might have been sped up because of Emma’s injury. Flair’s interview on Talk Is Jericho is up now (recorded before the storyline split) and he was talking about going on the upcoming Japan tour with his daughter. His run as a regular on TV could be over but there’s talk of bringing him back on TV for another storyline.
