Mickie James vs Winter (Knockouts Championship)
April: For the Knockouts Championship match, I am going to have to go with my gut and say that Mickie James is going to pull out the win in this one. She’s a strong champion and I don’t see her going down without a fight. I know the numbers game will come into play but I don’t see Winter walking out with that title. I think she could be champion one day but not tonight.
Bobby: I’ll start off with perhaps the most important match I will ever see in TNA, Mickie James vs. Winter. It’s no secret Winter is my favorite female in wrestling and being I never got to see her hold a title in WWE, I’m pretty much going into this saying my nightly prayers for a new champion. Nothing against Mickie as I think she’s really done well in TNA, but I could never and will never side against Winter in a Championship match. I say Winter takes the victory, we get our first British Knockouts Champion, and I celebrate by downing mountain dews all night being I’m not at the legal drinking age.
Cryssi: Hmmm Mickie or Winter? Well, this summer is so hot down hurr in good ole L.A., and by L.A. I totally mean Lower Alabama, and honestly the scorching hot, insanely humid, and ridiculous temperatures make me yearn for our winters. Boy do I lust for 60 degree weather! Because summer sucks this year and I think it’s stupid that Mickie wants a fan to pay for her next album (seriously??), I’m going for Winter! You go girl. Double champ? Make it happen.
Katelyn: Winter is on a roll, not only in TNA, but in wrestling in general. After winning WILD Wrestling’s championship the other day, I also pick Winter to walk out of Hardcore Justice as the new TNA Knockouts Champion and finish the week a double-champion.
Melanie: In my opinion, this one could go either way. I could see Mickie retaining and I could see Winter winning. Winter has really come into her own since joining TNA and proven to be a great addition to the Knockouts roster. Her character is unique and stands out compared to her character in WWE. I would love to see her finally get an opportunity to be champion. Not to mention she’d be the first British Knockouts Champ! Again, could go either way but I think I’m going to lean towards Winter winning the strap.
Tara & Miss Tessmacher vs Rosita & Sarita (Knockouts Tag Team Championship)
April: I look for Tara & Miss Tessmacher to retain. This will be Rosarita’s return match after losing and let’s face it, it’s rare for that comeback win. I think Taramacher have a unique dynamic and obvious chemistry. Tara is a great teacher and Tessmacher is an eager student. I think they may just keep running here, at least for a little while longer.
Bobby: I don’t really have much to say. This is Sarita and Rosita’s rematch clause and it’s nice to see the belts get a slot on a pay per view. I don’t see the cousins taking the belts back, but weirder things have happened in TNA before. Nonetheless, Tara & Miss Tessmacher retain the titles after the Stra-tess-faction/powerbomb combo.
Cryssi: I think it’s about as predictable as an Alabama loss in the Iron Bowl this year. Oh yes. War Eagle, baby. Tara & Miss Tessmacher will win this match because they’ve barely gotten a chance to wet their feet as champs. That said, Rosita remains my favorite Knockout (along with Velvet.) That’s all!
Katelyn: I see babyfaces Tara & Miss Tessmacher retaining their titles over Sarita and Rosita.
Melanie: Not much to say here. It looks like this match was just added at the last minute to fill some time. Wouldn’t expect anything dramatic like a title change. Tara & Miss Tessmacher will win.
