Today in History: Awesome Kong vs. Sojo Bolt & a Six-Knockout Tag Match at Destination X 2009

On this day in history:

March 15th, 2009 | Two very different Knockouts matches took place at Destination X 2009. First, to open the show, the ragtag team of Roxxi, Taylor Wilde and The Governor (Daffney in her Sarah Palin parody) defeated Angelina Love, Madison Rayne and Velvet Sky, Taylor pinning Madison with a bridging German suplex. Later in the night, Awesome Kong retained the Knockouts Title against Sojo Bolt, demonstrating her dominance by turning Sojo’s attempt at a hurricanrana into an explosive Awesome Bomb.

What are your memories of this moment?

    The current knockout division doesn’t have anything on the old knockout division. They couldn’t even if they tried hold a candle to the old knockout division.

    Knockouts were on fire , i remember when I said there was no way Wwe will compete with tna , boy was I wrong

    Sojo pretty good and enjoyable..
    Sad she not becoming a champion while in TNA

    • MK126

      She was actually rather sloppy during her time in TNA (as we saw with this match). I think this was her only Knockouts title shot besides her tag title shot when she got attacked by her partner after the match

  • This KO’s division was incredible and so diverse, I actually thought that They will replace and surpass the WWE Divas division.

    Between this match and their interaction during Sharmel and Jenna Morasca’s epic fail of a wrestling match, I always used to wonder if Kong and Sojo didn’t get on very well. In this match, for instance, Kong seems tentative and disengaged. And Bolt used to get reamed on the Wrestling Observer rag by your run of the mill wrestling misogynists. I always thought she was a decent enough wrestler but she came off so green in TNA.

      I remember when sojo first came in. She was apart of the Kong open challenge, and she was so firey and aggressive and she took the fight to Kong but something here was way off because look at how when sojo botched her apron spot. She tried to regroup with the crossbody and Kong just threw her off, like bitch get off me.

    This was a ppv best forgotten. As a whole this was a pretty bad show.

    Ugh this what TNA needs to have. I use to love this division so much. I use to feel like I was cheating on WWE because I use to tune in to impact just to see these ladies give me what Divas was not giving me at that time. When I’d get frustrated with the writing over at WWE, TNA would have me right. Now I wish both promotions would slay but i guess somebody has to take the back seat. It’s sad cause you can tell the quality of Women’s matches has went down. Compare these videos to something recent and you’ll see the difference.

    Take note NXT this is how you book a monster. Super strong, super intimidating, but BEATABLE. They really need to find the right balance, they made Nia look to weak and they’ve made Asuka look too strong! Like how can you fail at booking a monster I don’t get it

    I remember this was a low point with the knockouts and the sad part was they had the best roster ever. They just didn’t know who to push. You had roxxi, Angelina, Taylor wilde and cheerleader Melissa in a stupid ass gimmick… they had such a good group of girls that could’ve put the division back on. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b02979623627ddbbad374b64517c4cca669da80ae2114463dfc58b2c247020a0.gif https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/84709ab04c7bec84d4c12db52d2dd92b01e40d6ce07b5a56f7f01ce6ebfbdaaf.gif https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a34c0232fed96a24f24190886d192c631780e90d20ac3e5625f13b62caab19e5.gif
