Knockouts Championship: Gail Kim Def. Velvet Sky
This match started out strong with the two competitors going back and forth however, due to a distraction from Karen Jarrett, Rayne was able to interfere unnoticed and hit Sky and almost allowing Kim to land a splash off the top rope. When Sky was distracted it allowed for Gail Kim to hit Sky and get the pin to become the new Knockout’s Champion.
Jeremy Borash interviewed TNA Knockouts champions Gail Kim and Madison Rayne as well as Karen Jarrett. Borash asked if Kim was ready to challenge Velvet Sky for the Knockouts title. Jarrett said she was going to walk out there and bring the belt back. She said that she can’t have a skanky little ho, smart mouthed bitch go out there with the belt because of how it makes Jarrett look. Jarrett said she found someone who could properly represent the division. Rayne thought she meant her but Jarrett was talking about Kim. Kim said it would be a cakewalk and would be over in a few minutes. Jarrett said that Kim didn’t need anyone at ringside tonight because Jarrett brought her here to show the others the way it’s supposed to be done.
