Hola Knockout fans and welcome to this week’s GFW Impact Write-Up – Destination X style! In what has become a tradition to these live programs, we’re treated to a wave of surprises including the SHOCKING return of Taryn Terrell! Bless this return of the longest reigning Knockouts Champion! Let’s see how Taryn made her presence felt during our schedule Knockouts title match pitting Sienna against Gail Kim.

Our Knockouts Title match opens up the show and out first is the challenger Gail KIm. Nice to hear the Impact Zone upbeat and hey, those green ring ropes are an eye catcher GFW! The champion Sienna is out next and is accompanied by her trouble-making cousin KM. She wears the newly designed Knockouts Title proudly around her waist but boy I miss the original TNA/Impact Knockouts Title already.

The bell sounds off and Gail is quick on her feet – avoiding a strike from Sienna and taking her down with a running head scissors. The Knockouts struggle at a corner but Gail manages to roll Sienna up for a two count. When Gail sets up for an Eat Defeat, Sienna escapes to the outside ring but Gail stays on her trail. She strikes Sienna with an elevated kick using the ring post! We love you Gail!

Gail charges after Sienna but the champion catches her and slams Gail her to the steel steps. Sienna rolls back in the ring and orders Earl Hebner to start counting Gail out. Gail rolls back in the ring at the eight second mark but Sienna keeps the offense going, pummeling Gail down and then delivering a corner splash that earns the champion a two count.

Sienna whips Gail to the corner and sets up for the Silencer but Gail catches this and counters out with a roll up. Sienna kicks out and slows down Gail’s momentum with a big clothesline and fall away slam. When Sienna sets up Gail at the corner for a suplex from the second rope, Gail counters out with a sunset powerbomb!

Gail stays in control and strikes Sienna with a combination of running clothesline. She goes for a cover after landing a top rope cross body but Sienna stays alive. The champion sets Gail up for the AK-47 but Gail manages to slide out of it to surprise Sienna with an Eat Defeat! Before Gail can make the cover, KM jumps to the ring apron, distracting Earl from the match. In response, Gail knocks KM off with a running forearm.

All while this is happening, a returning Taryn Terrell comes out of nowhere to attack Gail with a Cutter! Can we still call it ‘Sugar Rush’? Sienna capitalizes and finishes Gail off with the AK-47 to retain the Knockouts Title! Post match, Taryn taunts and poses over Gail!.

In a post match video, Taryn confirmed her explains her resentments towards Gail and with her return to GFW, promises to now be her worst nightmare.

Elsewhere, Sienna takes full credit to defeating Gail, without Taryn’s help. Well then…

Thoughts: I’m always glad whenever GFW are able to make the most of their ‘live’ events and a shocking return from Taryn was one way to make the most of it! More of this during your live shows GFW!

I’m super excited to have Taryn back! GFW really invested a lot in her prior to her abrupt departure last year, so I’m glad that we’re getting a second chance to see what she can do again. With Gail nearing her retirement, it is super fitting to have one of her greatest rivalries happen one last time. We’ll have to wait and see whether the Knockouts Title picture will be inserted in this feud but either way, its a relief knowing that we’ll be seeing Gail will have a chance to create magic with Taryn again. However, I will admit that I am a bit worried of how Taryn will flare out after being away from action for over a year.

As for the Knockouts Title match, I really enjoyed it up until the interferences took place. Even with retirement pending, Gail still performs beautifully, can take a mean bump just as the steel steps spot here and really brings out some of the best in her opponent. Now I have to say I’m not too crazy about the new GFW Knockouts Title. We’re still calling it the Knockouts title despite it reading ‘Women’s Champion’ on the belt. It was overall a lazy route to just swap out the colors from the original GFW Women’s Title can call it ‘new’ but honestly, as some of guys have already mentioned, its a minor thing to complain about so long as the Knockouts Division can fully elevate again.

With Taryn’s return, the signing of two new Knockouts and now established names like Rosemary, Allie and Laurel Van Ness, I truly see that there potential in the Knockouts division really shining through again. It just takes GFW (and truly any company) to really want to invest in their women’s division. We’re counting on you again GFW!

What did you think of this week’s episode of GFW? Looking forward to another Gail/Taryn feud? How would you book their feud? Let us know in the comments below!

    Flopienna needs to lose the title already and get fired.

    Taryn looks amazing. And I love those sexy little mini tu-tu’s she wears. Fierce! Christian Girl Reverts Back To The Dark Side! lol.

    • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

      Preach

  • John Finnie
  • I wonder if Taryn has only come back to work this program with Gail, I don’t know if she’d want to be on the road that much based on the issues she wanted to avoid swirling around her last departure.

  • I don’t know why you all have a problem with Sienna. She’s good in the ring, she has personality and is hilarious on social media. She is a very marketable and I don’t blame GFW for pushing her. Hopefully this ring will be better than her last one.

    • Malcolm James

      Thank you

    • Nathan Bootleg Kardashian

      LMAO I don’t know if you know this but last week she accused Charlotte of stealing her gimmicks and stuff. ? Like why would Charlotte need to steal a second rate champion’s gimmick ?

      • KellyAJNaomi#Slay

        Exactly like Charlotte is miles a head of you so I don’t get why she would wanna copy you

      • Malcolm James

        Then why WWE did a response video to a second rate champion like Sienna ?

      • I didn’t take her comment seriously quite frankly

      • GameChanger #HBIC#GoldenGodess

        Cause she practically did

        • I don’t know if I am correct, but Charlotte debuted her feathers at WrestleMania. Months after Sienna started appearing with her feathers, so practically yes, Sienna is right. Somehow I can’t stand when Charlotte and Becky are doing the pinky thing, but with Sienna, I like it.

        • iOwnThatSonOfABitch

          No.

    • #BrieForPeace ?

      Honestly I don’t think she’s that bad is just that her attire is so unflattering for one, her gimmick does not match her size or her persona whatsoever, they’re trying to build her as this mean strong powerhouse which is ridiculous while she’s trying to come off as this sneaky conniving heel. Sienna should get a rebrand because she does have potential but I think her current persona isn’t helping. Add that to the lackluster character development and you get a bland confusing Sienna.

  • DivaLicious?

    GFW should just pull the plug this show has been on Life support for a few months now?

    Taryn Terrell I’m happy to see you back! But for how long? Is this another Angelina love deal? Where she only comes back for one little storyline then leaves?? It’s so up in the air for right now. Just look at Brooke Adams where the hell is she??? Knockouts return for a little while then disappear?????

    ?Public service alert: rosemary is still missing! WTF

    And sienna is still boring and uninteresting. Nothing out of the ordinary.

    • Malcolm James

      Brooke Adams got hurt and I think that effect her a lot she did a interview says she doesn’t know if she coming back to wrestling because she afraid she make it serious injured like get paralyzed and she a mother now

    • MAB

      Surely the show can’t be THAT bad if you’re commenting on the reviews every week.

      • GameChanger #HBIC#GoldenGodess

        i swear i cant with these people, they complain for every shit. Impact is a 2 hour show once a week, not everytime are you going to see somebody, plus the woman just went through a table my god

        • DivaLicious?

          Mick foley went through a million of tables in his day. You never see him miss a episode of raw or smackdown. C’mon stop sticking up for this company. Rosemary shouldn’t be that hurt. She ain’t go thought 5 tables in one night. C’mon now?????

      • DivaLicious?

        So you must be ok with watching a horrible product? Your the reason why GFW will always suck. You like to put up with terrible scripted shows with corny horrible gimmick that drags for 7months *coughs LVN*

        • MAB

          No, in fact when I stopped enjoying the product I stopped watching for a number of weeks. So no, I am not the reason GFW will “always suck”. You’re the one who is always watching, giving the product the attention which would imply to the creative team that they’re booking the show right as you’re still giving them the views. If you don’t like the “horrible product” you wouldn’t keep watching right?

    • Edwin #SlayMeKnockouts

      If you hate GFW.. just DON’T watch.. its quite simple. No one is forcing you to.

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    Well hopefully the new knockouts division can get on the level of what the knockouts was around 07-08. With Gail leaving we do need a new star athlete so it’s time to start weeding out the division to see. My money is on Hania as she is a gem and is someone to watch. Btw what happen to MJ? Is she still signed?

    • GameChanger #HBIC#GoldenGodess

      MJ is still signed, and has been in Orlando for the tapings

      • YonceLuvsDivas

        Good! I really liked her just haven’t heard anything on her lately.

  • GailKimStan

    Taryn did the right thing by returning, religion is a fraud anyways.

    Btw i’m hoping we get the first ever Queen of the Mountain match down the line.
    Sienna, Gail, Taryn, Rosemary, Allie and Taya could easily outdo both women’s MITB matches considering how underwhelming those two were

    • Malcolm James

      Yes I would love them to do that because unlike smackdown women division the knockout are not scared to get physical with the ladders and do some crazy spots like the men

  • Gail looked and wrestled like she was 20, wow! She was stunning. Love that Taryn is back, can’t wait to see them square off once again.

    The Women’s title looks so ugly and basic.

    • Jo9834

      Heck yes!! Gail was on another level during this match, she moved so swift , crisp and clean. It’s horrible that she’s retiring but I am almost certain her and Taryn will tear the roof down with whatever they do for her final match.

  • Edwin #SlayMeKnockouts

    I love how the match quality went up.. Thank you Gail. You always make it a treat to watch the matches whenever you’re in it.

  • Jo9834

    Gail Kim wrestled her ASS off in that match and did not miss a step at all. She literally is an enigma in the ring, she makes everyone look better than they really are. She will be sorely missed but I am looking forward to whatever classic her and Taryn are going to put on.

    PS They need to come up with a better feud than ‘She helped her husband open restaurants and forgot about me’. I mean come on! Why couldn’t Taryn say something like…’She’s retiring , and planning to go out on top as the greatest, I came back to retire her and prove to the world that she’s an afterthought and I AM the greatest female competitor in this divisions history’.
