NXT and alliance with Emma (2013–2016)[edit]

Main roster beginnings and various alliances (2016–2019)[edit]

Brooke made her main roster debut on the May 9, 2016 episode of Raw, where she assisted Emma to attack Becky Lynch backstage[28] and then three days later, on SmackDown, Brooke defeated Lynch with a help from Emma in Brooke's first singles match on the main roster.[29] Just a few days later, Brooke's association with Emma ended abruptly after Emma suffered a legit back injury during at the WWE's live event.[30] At Extreme Rules on May 22, Brooke interfered in the Women's Championship match between Charlotte and Natalya, costing Natalya's chance to regain the title.[31] The next night on Raw, Brooke aligned herself with Charlotte, whom on this night has turned on her father Ric Flair.[32][33]

After disbanding with the group by the early September of 2018,[53] Brooke took part at the first-ever all women's pay–per–view, called Evolution, competing in the battle royal for a future women's championship match, where she lost after being eliminated by Moon.[54] At 2019's Royal Rumble pay-per view, Brooke competed in the second women's Royal Rumble match, where she entered at number 22 and lasted 7:17, but was eliminated by NXT UK's Rhea Ripley.[55] On the March 11 episode of Raw, Brooke confronted the-then Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey for disrespecting wrestling and challenging her to a title match until Rousey accepts by attacking Brooke.[56] The following week on Raw, Brooke lost to Rousey in over a few seconds, who the latter successfully retained her Raw Women's title.[57] Brooke talked about that the promo with Rousey was a Paul Heyman-inspired shoot promo that enabled her to express her actual frustrations and her true feelings.[58]
