The Main Event Mafia’s Traci Brooks joined The Monday Night Mayhem Radio Network as part of the countdown to TNA’s Bound For Glory PPV this Sunday night from The Bren Events Center in Irvine, CA. As many have had the chance to see, TNA’s original Knockout, has had the opportunity to cross over into the world of Playboy, and has received rave reviews for her work with the magazine. There has been many rumors swirling online how Traci was originally scheduled to be on the cover of Playboy, but was bumped for others, including Marge Simpson. Traci used The Mayhem’s airwaves as a platform to address the controversy. "The funny thing is, you know how I feel about anything on the Internet. First of all, I was never promised the cover. That was someone posing to be me answering the question. I did the photo shoot in May, someone found out about it, & gave the information out…the wrong information of course. No one ever promised the cover. Hef (Hugh Hefner) had the final decision on the cover. Unfortunately Farrah Fawcett passed away, and if you go inside the magazine, she is the celebrity pictorial, which I was supposed to be, but he wanted to honor her, since she was in the magazine before. I got bumped for Farrah Fewcett, which I’m not going to complain about because she was a sex icon."

Some reports have recently surfaced that one of Traci’s Main Event Mafia colleagues, Booker T, will be leaving TNA at the end of his current contract, and possibly return back to the WWE. Traci was asked how this could change The Mafia’s dynamic, as well as if this could affect the long-term viability of the group going into its one-year anniversary as a faction. "Everything is going great. People need to focus more on what’s going on TV than all the rumors backstage. We put on a helluva product, and right now, The Main Event Mafia is doing great. We’re defending all the titles this week except for Kurt Angle wrestling Matt Morgan, and of course, Kurt is going to come out on top."
