On this day in history:


January 5th, 2016 | As part of their official debut on their new network home of Pop TV, TNA broadcasted a live episode of Impact Wrestling. The Dollhouse were pitted in a tag match against the team of Gail Kim and The Beautiful People. The babyfaces would walk out with a victory after Gail got a body scissors on Jade and rolled her up for the win but would then fall victims to a post match beatdown. Awesome Kong would come out but instead of attacking her former tormentors, she too would attack The Beautiful People and Gail Kim, pose with The Dollhouse and cement herself leader of the group for a brief period. Maria Kanellis also made her TNA debut alongside her husband Mike Bennett, cutting a promo on how they promised to be the “miracles” that TNA needed for years to come.

What are your memories of this moment?

    This is when the KO division started to fall, Terrell’s departure was devastating for the Doll House and the division in general.

      I thought the division was already a mess at this point. Terrell failed to ever impress me and I hated her as the focus of the division.

        To me, she was refreshing with this Doll House. She had amazing matches with Gail Kim and during her baby face phrase.

      Actually Taryn’s turn was the downfall. While the turn itself was epic, the introduction of the Dollhouse killed the division, and the level of competition we had become accustomed to.

      The idea behind the Dollhouse was good, but the execution was horribly tacky.

      Plus Taryn was not skilled enough to be top heel just yet, Jade was not meant for that role, and Marti brought nothing of significance to the table.

      Had they went with a Taryn/Kong/Gail/Havok feud instead of the direction they went, the division may not be in shambles right now.

        Not everything was bad, she had great times with The Dollhouse. Once she left and DollHouse made no impact thanks to loosing to Gail & others. The DollHouse was good during their feud with Kong & Gail but then TNA started to suck.

    Mike and Maria’s debut was lowkey awesome

    I never understood why they put people that the Dollhouse beat up in their stable… like why the fuck would Kong join the DH? Her only goal would be to beat up Gail but their recent feud was bad…
