Prior to her TNA Signing, Brandi, who is the real life wife of Professional Wrestler Cody Rhodes, also worked as a ring announcer for the WWE, going under the name of Eden Stiles during her two runs with the company, leaving in 2016 alongside her husband to end her second tenure. In September, TNA officially announced the signing of Brandi to their Knockouts Division, days after rumors surfaced that Brandi would be signing with the company. Brandi wold then officially debut alongside her husband Cody at Bound for Glory, interrupting an aggravated Mike Bennett and his wife Maria after Maria dropped her Knockouts Title to Gail Kim. Weeks Later, Cody would take time away from TNA while Brandi would progress as a Knockout, targeted by Maria and Sienna. While Allie was hesitant to side with Brandi due to her forced allegiance to Maria, Brandi eventually enlisted the veteran support of Madison Rayne to face Sienna and Laurel in Tag Team Action, with the babyfaces winning the match. Brandi returned to Television in February 2017 in a short feud with Rosemary and Decay, bringing a temporary alignment between Brandi and Moose which caused Cody Rhodes eventual disdain and heel turn.

Brooke is a 3x Knockouts Champion, winning the championship twice in 2012 from Gail Kim and Madison Rayne then from Taryn Terrell in 2015. She is also a 1x TNA Knockouts Tag Team Champion alongside TNA Alumni Tara, having won the belts in 2011. In late 2013, Brooke would also have her first run as a heel in TNA by managing the frontal stable of the Aces and Eights, more specifically the Aces and Eights leader and eventual TNA World Champion Bully Ray. Following the break up of the group and the pairing themselves, Brooke took a several month absence from Television, before returning in 2015 to feud with former real life boyfriend and fellow Amazing Race Contestant Robbie E, who was being managed by The Beautiful People. After closing her angle with Robbie, Brooke then began being pushed towards title contention, earning a shot at the Knockouts Championship on the TKO Night of Knockouts episode of IMPACT which was originally scheduled to be headlined by Taryn Terrell defending the Knockouts Championship against Awesome Kong, though the two did not compete in the main event. The Same night, Taryn transitioned to a heel per the debuting Dollhouse’s interference in the match in order to help her retain. Brooke would challenge for the title, at first unsuccessful due to the numbers game (the stables interferences) but sometime after Slammiversary, Brooke managed to end the record breaking reign of Taryn, hitting a face-buster to the heel champion and capitalizing on an interference by Taryn’s longtime rival, Gail Kim. Brooke dropped the title in September that year to Gail near to the closure of TNAs episodic run for that year, only reemerging during TNA’s filler World Title Series, unable to advance to the finals of that tourney alongside Madison Rayne who she tied with in points. In November, Brooke left the company, revealing some months later she was expecting her first child, who she gave birth to in September 2016. In January 2017, it was revealed Brooke was returning to TNA, and to Wrestling, returning to TNA officially on the January 7th TV Taping where she defeated indy wrestler Deonna Purrazzo, officially airing on the January 19th episode of IMPACT. Following the match, she was attacked by Sienna as a repercussion for standing up to Maria Kanellis-Bennett backstage, leading to the two facing off on the February 2nd episode, with Brooke losing per an assist from Maria. Brooke challenged Sienna again on the February 16th episode of IMPACT, this time winning the match to Sienna’s dismay.

Lauren Williams-Richards, Otherwise known by her TNA ring name of Angelina Love, or formerly Angel Williams, is a Canadian Professional Wrestler currently signed to TNA IMPACT Wrestling, where has been a 1x TNA Knockouts Tag Team Champion and 6x TNA Knockouts Champion, a feat she singularly accomplished up until it was tied due to Gail Kim’s Victory over Maria Kanellis-Bennett at Bound for Glory 2016, making Kim a 6x Knockouts Champion also. Love had left TNA on three separate occasions, once in 2009 and the second time in 2012 during the phasing off of her on screen partnership with then TNA Knockout Winter, who had turned her against her longtime TNA Tag Team Partner and Fellow Member of the Beautiful People Velvet Sky. Love returned to TNA in 2014, proceeding to rekindle her tenured partnership with then babyface Velvet Sky to the chagrin of then Knockouts Champion Madison Rayne. The Continuing tension between the Beautiful People members lead to Velvet eventually turning heel on Madison Rayne in aid of Angelina Love. Sky would also be in Loves corner as she closed out her feud with Madison Rayne at Sacrifice that year, defeating Rayne to earn her 6th Knockouts Title, a feat unmatched until Gail Kim’s win over Maria Kanellis-Bennett in 2016. Love retained the championship against Gail Kim at Slammiversary 2014, later dropping it to her on the July 3rd episode of IMPACT. Love rekindled her feud with Kim weeks later in a Last Knockout Standing Match, but was unable to regain the title, and thus Love and Sky moved on to managing the BroMans up until Velvet was released in January 2015. In May that year, Velvet returned to TNA under a new persona, mocked by Angelina, who had shown happiness over Velvet’s Release in January. Scuffles between the two over the weeks lead to an eventual singles match between the two, which Velvet won. The Feud culminated there and Angelina reunited with Sky as well as Madison Rayne in Late 2015 when Sky was targeted by the Dollhouse stable, headed by Taryn Terrell. The Dollhouse had attacked Angelina to write her off TV due to her pregnancy, leaving Velvet and Madison to be defeated by the Beautiful People to close 2015. Love would appear on the first IMPACT of 2016 to show her support for Velvet and Madison as they went up again against the Dollhouse with the addition of Gail Kim on their side to replace Love. In March of 2016, Angelina announced she was no longer contracted to TNA, a week after she gave birth to her first child. In 2017, Angelina returned to TNA as one of two Knockouts returning to the Promotion, participating in a One Night Only PPV Match against Madison Rayne. Love was then entered into an official TV angle when herself and real life husband Davey Richards attacked Eddie Edwards and Alisha (Alexxis Neveah) following Davey costing Eddie his last world title match with Lashley on the February 9th episode of IMPACT, turning both heel in the process and making Angelina Davey’s manager. On the February 16th episode of IMPACT, Angelina got herself involved in a Street Fight main event featuring Davey and Eddie, teasing attacking Alisha though Eddie threw himself over Alisha to protect her, taking a brutal assault from Davey. Angelina then took out the referee and counted Davey’s pinfall over the former tag team partner, awarding him the victory in his first match since turning heel.
