TNA Knockout explains why she had breast reduction

TNA Knockout Brooke (Adams) Tessmacher took to her Facebook page this week to discuss her recent surgery to have her breasts revised. Brook wrote:

“I’ve got tons of questions to why I decided to have a breast revision. There are several reason to why, but the most important complications are from my prior operation. I had a Capsular contracture on one side and on the other I had a ruptured implant. This is something that I have had for a very long time. I wasn’t ready to put my wrestling career on hold to go through another surgery to have them corrected. I felt this was the perfect time for me to finally fix something that was awful for so long.
