TNA Career Edit
The Menagerie (2014-2015) Edit
Brooks was signed to Total Nonstop Action Wrestling after long-time friend and former "Purrfect Angelz" member Christy Hemme suggested her. In May 2014, Knux debuted his new stable called The Menagerie, composed of himself, Rebel, Crazzy Steve and The Freak. Rebel made her in-ring debut on the September 10 episode of Impact Wrestling, teaming with Crazzy Steve and Knux in six person mixed tag-team match, where they lost to the team of The BroMans and Velvet Sky. The following episode of Impact Wrestling during a Knockouts Battle Royal, Rebel legitimately fractured her arm when she landed on the steel steps when Havok knocked her over the top rope.
She made her in-ring return on the October 15 episode of Impact Wrestling, defeating Angelina Love and The BroMans. On the following episode, Rebel was scheduled to face Angelina Love in her singles debut on Impact Wrestling, however she was met by Havok who maliciously attacked her. On January 7, 2015, during Impact Wrestling's debut on Destination America, Rebel participated in a battle royal for the TNA Knockouts Championship, however she was the first to be eliminated. After Knux and The Freak's releases, The Menagerie's profile on the TNA website was later moved to the alumni section.
Rebel made her return on the May 15 episode of Impact Wrestling, where she teamed with Brooke in a losing effort to The Dollhouse (Jade and Marti Bell). A few weeks later, Rebel was seen in a backstage segment, congratulating Brooke on her winning the TNA Knockouts Championship, only to be attacked by Marti Bell and Jade.
Heel Turn; The Dollhouse (2015-present) Edit
On the August 26 episode of Impact Wrestling, Rebel turned into a villainess for the first time in her career, doing so during a Knockouts Championship match between Brooke and Velvet Sky. After pretending to save Sky from Jade and Marti's vicious attack, the evil Rebel attacked Sky from behind with a kick to her back. Rebel laughed evilly after continuing her attack on Sky, and she officlally became the newest member of The Dollhouse.
