I know what you’re thinking. No Brooke Hogan didn’t repackage herself.
As a matter of fact, the only connection Atlanta wrestler Kiera Hogan has to the most famous name in wrestling is just that: the name.
Kiera initially fell in love with pro wrestling after seeing Mickie James and Trish Stratus wrestle as a child. As a life long wrestling fan, Kiera began her journey 3 years ago as an announcer and manager of her real life and on screen boyfriend, wrestler Owen Knight.
Knight encouraged Hogan to step into the ring as a worker and she began training under the tutelage of Curtis Hughes, who has trained a names such as Heath Slater, Apollo Crews, Moose, Cody Hall, and much more.
What drew me to cover Hogan, is her meteoric rise throughout the indies over the last year. She has amassed a very impressive resume in the ring.
She’s already taken on well known veterans such as “The First Lady of the Bullet Club” Amber O’Neal Gallows (wife of Club member Luke Gallows), TNA’s Marti Belle, ROH’s Taeler Hendrix, as well as working tapings for WSU, and Booker T’s Reality of Wrestling (of which she appears as a regular of the Diamonds Division).
Her ring psychology as a face or heel are only accented by her skill set which can be grouped into Atlanta’s “Southern Strong Style.”
Hogan has money written all over her. She has the look, the in ring skill, and the promo skills to be a top contender in WWE or TNA.
Even with that as almost a guarantee in the future, for now Kiera Hogan is focused on dominating the indie scene and whether its Shimmer, Shine, WSU, or Reality of Wrestling,
I see nothing but gold in the future for “The Girl On Fire.”
