Pop open the Champagne and warm up the barcode scanners at Target for the wedding gift registry, Phil Costa and Brooke Hogan are engaged!
It all happened Friday night in front of the Eiffel Tower– in Las Vegas– when the Cowboys offensive lineman got down on one knee to ask Brooke, daughter of legendary WWE wrestler Hulk Hogan, her hand in marriage; which was all documented in photos for the world to see via future Mrs. Costa’s Instagram profile.
Brooke’s younger brother Nick Hogan was the first to announce the news with a photo of the happy couple on social media.
“MY SISTER IS GETTING MARRIED!!! CONGRATULATIONS BROOKE!!!” Nick said via Twitter on Friday night.
Costa has come a long way since being signed as an undrafted free agent by Cowboys in 2010 as a backup. Now the offensive lineman is the starting center in Dallas, and makes his first step in joining Hogan wrestling royalty by marrying its reality-star princess.
Of course, wrestling fans out there know that this is not the first time this year Brooke has been asked to walked down the isle.
Brooke is a performer for TNA Impact Wrestling, which Hulk also works for. Earlier this year, Brooke, who is in charge of the companies female “Knockouts” division, was proposed to by bad guy-turned-good Bully Ray.
Against her father’s wishes, Brook and Bully Ray were set to wed on the January 17th episode, which airs on Spike TV.
But like in all wrestling tv weddings … something always goes wrong.
The wedding party was attacked by the rogue villain biker gang known as the “Aces and Eights.” It would later be revealed that Bully Ray was behind the attack.
Here’s hoping that Costa knows better (and doesn’t hire any New York Giants or Washington Redskins) to break-up the wedding because her dad, and his 24-inch pythons, are not someone you really want to make upset.
