I suppose Hulk Hogan saw all the fun his old pal Eric Bischoff was having by letting his kid, Garett, run loose inside the Impact Zone while ratings remain stagnant and their once rock solid tag team ranks and X-Division roster sink to mediocre levels and though, "Hey, I could do that."

Come May 31 -- which will also see Impact move to a live format every week -- the Hogan offspring not responsible for essentially murdering a young man will be the Executive in Charge of TNA's Knockouts division.

That's right, Cagesiders. Brooke Hogan is invading the Impact Zone.

Why? Well, in case you missed it, her last name is Hogan. That's seemingly all the proof Dixie Carter and the other TNA brass needed to think she should be on a wrestling program.

Maybe her and and Garett will fall in love and the Bischoffs and Hogans will finally be one, nauseating family.

Full press release from ImpactWrestling.com after the jump.

BROOKE HOGAN TO JOIN TNA'S "IMPACT WRESTLING" ON SPIKE TV STARTING THURSDAY, MAY 31

New York, NY, May 17, 2012 - Television personality and recording artist Brooke Hogan is joining the cast of the highly-rated weekly wrestling program, TNA's "IMPACT WRESLTING" starting Thursday, May 31 on Spike TV. Brooke's role will be as the Executive in Charge of the female wrestling division, The Knockouts. Brooke will join a star-studded cast of the biggest names in professional wrestling, including her father, wrestling legend Hulk Hogan. TNA's flagship series, "IMPACT WRESLTING," telecasts on Spike TV and is one of the network's top-rated series on Thursday nights with young men and currently ranks among the top shows on cable in its timeslot with Men 18-34.

In addition to overseeing the traditional duties of the Knockouts Division, Brooke will bring a new energy and direction to the role working with the girls in a variety of capacities.

"I have really gotten to know Brooke by working with her on her music career this past year and a half," said Dixie Carter, President of TNA Wrestling. "When we did talk wrestling, I not only loved her passion and knowledge of it, but the fresh, creative ideas she would come up with. She is very savvy. I asked if she would consider teaming up with me in this capacity while she also worked on her music, and I was thrilled when she said ‘yes.' A big personality runs in her genes, obviously, and I know she is going to take an already exciting division of Impact Wrestling to another level." Brooke is heading to New York next week for a media tour to promote her addition to the IMPACT WRESTLING team. Brooke will also promote "IMPACT WRESTLING's" move to 8 PM and that the series will telecast LIVE for the summer starting Thursday, May 31. TNA's 10th anniversary SLAMMINVERSARY pay-per-view-event is set for June 10th in Dallas, Texas.

The TNA roster features many of the top names in wrestling including the aforementioned Hulk Hogan, Jeff Hardy, Kurt Angle, Bobby Roode, Sting, James Storm, Rob Van Dam, and the lovely and lethal Knockouts.

Brooke Hogan, a native of Tampa, Fl, is a successful television personality, singer and songwriter. Brooke starred in two acclaimed non-scripted shows on Spike's sister network, VH1, including "Hogan Knows Best" and the spinoff, "Brooke Knows Best." Both were #1 rated shows for the network. Brooke has also released two albums, "Undiscovered" in 2006 which peaked at #28 on the Billboard Hot 100, and "The Redemption" in 2009. Her song, "Everything To Me," peaked at #1 twice on Billboard's Top Single Chart. Hogan's film credits include "Little Hercules in 3D," "Sand Sharks," and "Devour."
