Spoiler
February 2nd:
* Tara def. Gail Kim with the Widow’s Peak. The crowd was a bit quiet after seeing two action packed title matches beforehand, but they won the crowd over. One or two slip ups during the match but a good match.

    Madison accidentally hit Gail with the title, which led to the Widows Peak :)

    Glad to see Tara picking up the win, although I’m a little bummed out that Gail’s winning streak has ended, she was almost at 10 in a row dammit xD

    • StraightEdgeCRF

      this is what I hope happens:They lose the Tag Team Championships to Mickie & Velvet leading to Gail turning face and feud with Madison.Then these feuds end up happening:
      Tara & Tessmacher vs Winter & Angelina(Tara feuds with Winter for the Knockout’s Championship)
      Mickie & Velvet vs Sarita & Rosita for the Tag Team Championships
      Gail vs Madison

      • jen07201

        I like your especially the idea of Sarita and Rosita reappering in TV it’s been way to long and everyone wants Mickie and Velvet as tag champs.

  • VelvetLoveFan

    Wish there was another match for the night!
    Like Mickie and Velvet teaming or something
    But glad Tara won!

  • LayTorres

    Anybody considering a Maddie face turn here? I m 100% positive by the looks of it

    • StraightEdgeCRF

      no.Gail turning face.Madison makes a better heel

    • wl75

      Maybe a tweener turn- she might not like Mickie/Tara/Velvet, but she’s starting to dislike Gail even more…

  • nathaniel

    This might mean that since Tara beat Gail here, Tara will lose the title match at the PPV.

    • http://www.gailkimsource.com Danni

      I doubt Tara has any chance of winning :/ I think when Gail does drop it [i imagine at Lockdown] it’ll be to either Mickie or Velvet.

      • jen07201

        I would hope Mickie

        • http://www.twitter.com/xTeamK2 Blonde Bombshell

          Ew. Enough of Mickie winning titles.

        • A.E

          at least mickie have talent unlike kelly

  • jen07201

    I wanted to see Mickie and Velvet vs Gail and Madison for the tag titles and have new champs.

  • A.E

    can’t wait to see the tara/gail match as far as the velvet mickie match i am not gonna judge it until i see it

  • jen07201

    What is up with this Mickie losing two weeks in a row it is just not right.

    • Jamesgangforever

      Preach! It wouldn’t bother me as much if she wasn’t the one to get pinned last week.

      • Melina&Mickie4ever!

        Im sure Mickie could afford some losing at the moment

      • jen07201

        Yeah OH GOD I hope they don’t do to her what they are doing to Natalya and turn her into a jobber because I will be pissed off.

        • Jamesgangforever

          @jen07201 NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! They would never do that to Mickie.Not in a million light years.

        • jen07201

          I sincerly hope not because that would be awful.

  • A.E

    thogh i kinda wounder the angle behind the mickie velvet match is there is story behind it or just random match up

  • jen07201

    Velvet Sky beat Mickie James with a roll-up

  • Jamesgangforever

    I hope it is some kind of story behind this Mickie and Velvet match and not just some random match they did.We’ll have to wait and see.

    • VelvetLoveFan

      Maybe there was a backstage segment or something, yeah well have to wait…

  • Jamesgangforever

    Velvet beat Mickie.smh.I GUESS I can deal with it.Even if I don’t approve.

    • jen07201

      I want a Mickie James heel turn and Psycho Mickie back.

      • Jamesgangforever

        YES!As soon as I read this spoiler about Velvet beating Mickie,I started having visions of Mickie turning psycho.

        • http://twitter.com/lostmikeys Kaledrina

          it’ll be interesting to see the backstage segments leading to the match.

          it could be a #1 contender match, with the winner (velvet) facing gail (who’s so gonna retain vs tara) at the next ppv? =/ iunno, it just seems too random for two faces to have a match if there’s no reason, especially as neither hold a title currently.

        • jen07201

          Oh it waould be sweet to see psycho Mickie back and then have her win the title how do you think she would react.

  • Melina&Mickie4ever!

    Go Tara! LOL Cant wait to see that match &Velvet vs Mickie. I dont mind Mickie losing twice in a week or taking the fall in the triple threat match. Mickie has always been built as a top competitor , and I rather Mickie take loses so nobody complains about her always winning or never being pinned. Plus to she can afford it , she hardly loses anyways.

    • BillyGP

      Mickie is a top competitor win or lose.

      • Melina&Mickie4ever!

        I never said she wasnt if she did win or lose.

        • BillyGP

          I know im just saying.

  • BillyGP

    Mickie pinned twice in a row cleanly hope Mickie not pushed aside. Plus crowd behind Velvet will there be a segment of Mickie turning heel? The other night at the house show report Mickie got a big pop.

    • BillyGP

      What get me is the almost in sympathy part.

  • Krazyvickay

    I wonder what they mean Velvet vs Mickie wasn’t a good match. Were there botches or the crowd just wasn’t interested in it.

    • BillyGP

      Not worried bout that because spoilers with not a good match are wrong most the time.

    • http://twitter.com/lostmikeys Kaledrina

      Match started out as pretty much an arm wrench contest with it later picking up the pace, towards the end was a handful of finisher reversals before velvet got the pin. The only ‘botch’ was when mickie went to snapmare velvet but vel’s head went sideways rather than forwards but then the snapmare hit like a second after. So not really a botch more a minor miscommunication they can just edit out

      • BillyGP

        So a good match? Don’t matter my all time favorite Mickie vs my second favorite knockout Velvet so win win for me.

        • http://twitter.com/lostmikeys Kaledrina

          It wasn’t a bad match, just nothing special is all. Pretty mediocre.

  • BillyGP

    Isn’t Mickie and Velvet advertised for Against All Odds? Not a match but to be there.

    • Jamesgangforever

      I’m pretty sure they.That’s what people are saying.I know Velvet was already advertised but people are saying Mickie is too.

      • BillyGP

        On the Against All Odds page Mickie is mentioned plus her schedule on her site.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/bxshadow23?feature=mhum EveLover

    Mickie should turn heel. I want to see her psycho again and she could feud with velvet, so Tara&Brooke could feud with gail&madison.

    • jen07201

      Totally and imagine if Daffney was there that would be wild.

  • http://twitter.com/lostmikeys Kaledrina

    The crowd were completely behind velvet were mickie was only get small cheers. And again, where I was the crowd were totally into the tara/gail match

    The dickhead sat behind me shouting ‘you fucked up’ or ‘get your tits out’ every 30secs was very annoying though

    Lovely day, got to meet hemme, dixie, velvet, madison and tara.. All very sweet, especially velvet and tara :)

    • BillyGP

      Surprising considering Mickie is over.

      • A.E

        why it’s not necessary it’s similar to trish and mickie in wrestle mania were mickie was the heel and the fans was behind her while trish was booed out of the building

        • StraightEdgeCRF

          yeah.I wanted Mickie to beat Trish for the title not only because I became of her’s since she made her WWE debut,but also because Trish being champion was getting boring

    • DjayDay

      Always wanted to meet Hemme :(

  • http://ahlanthony.tumblr.com ahlanthony

    I wish they use Sarita and Rosita more. I miss these girls.

    • StraightEdgeCRF

      That’s why I’m hoping Mickie doesn’t turn heel/So her & Velvet win the tag team titles and feud with Sarita & Rosita since I want Mickie & Sarita to have some type of feud.

  • Jhonmarco

    nice to see velvet get a win over mickie, maybe pushing her as the top face behind tara? lol @ people not liking mickie losing a few matches and becoming a jobber. mickie being super cena in the division could only last so long. i definitely want her to turn heel, she could easily rip the crowd apart for liking velvet more for being trashy, etc. tara vs. gail should be amazing. nice to see gail take a loss here.

    • BillyGP

      Mickie has NOT been super Cena. No one upset she losing and she no jobber. Mickie has lost many in TNA just wonder why face vs face. Like her or not Mickie is the top face unless she is going heel and a top knockout to me and few other the top knockout.

      • Jhonmarco

        She certainly has been Cena imo until recently. She barely gets beaten cleanly, she has had the same character since late 2006, moveset can get stale at times. Granted since her debut in TNA she has seemed to have lit a fire under her ass. There were people above being upset about Mickie losing 2 matches in a row & people were begining to use the word jobber which I agree she isn’t. I was stating how it was funny that people throw a fit when Mickie isn’t on a winning streak.

        • A.E

          dude what with the comparison kinda similar when people compare velvet sky to kelly people they are totally different but the only thing that mickie and cena have in common they are tough as hell ,and just because the moveset are repetitive that doesn’t make them stale a lots of veteran like to be original.

          peace i am out

        • Jhonmarco

          Velvet & Kelly aren’t comparable at all. Velvet’s worked her way up on the indies, Kelly was picked out of a catalog. Velvet has mic skills & can cut promos like no one’s business, we have no idea if Kelly can due to WWE never letting their face divas be anything but generic. Velvet can wrestle, not as well as the others but she can hold her own, while Kelly really needs to be pushed more as a wrestler & can be lazy. The hair color can be the only comparison there.

    • A.E

      guys to all of a fairness if you really count mickie’s losing streak it based is pretty even mickie’s majority of losses is on ppv thank to someone interference weather it’s tara madison angelina…ect and the tag matches on show but the funny thing that this is the first time mickie lose cleanly.

      in my opinion mickie should be in the tag picture with either velvet or tracy for while tara become in singles.

      the majority would love to see mickie heel lets be honest,she proved how good of a heel she is on AAA but i think her popularity sorta hold her back.still we can hope tna to do it they did it with jeff hardy why not mickie

      • A.E

        oh forgot to mention just because mickie is over with the crowed that doesn’t make her super cena those two totally different persona cena who have the super gimmick while mickie is the spunky country girl,cena is cena and mickie is mickie totally different persons different character different gimmick,nobody is the same as nobody seriously people need to stop with the damn comparison it’s bit annoying the comparisons

        • Jhonmarco

          I never mentioned her being over with the crowd? They hardly ever get beaten & when they do it’s booked as an unclean finish. They’ve been in the title picture constantly. They’ve needed a heel turn for some time now. They can squash people like no one’s business. They’ve been booked as underdogs, but in reality are the opposite. Whenever Mickie’s in a match these days, I immediately expect her to win. Doesn’t that say something about her mega push on tv?

        • BillyGP

          Who has Mickie squashed? If you compare Mickie push compare it to Michelle McCool. Again with the movset why change it if it works plus it called a movset for a reason.

        • Jhonmarco

          She squashed the whole division in that gauntlet match. The other girls got offense, but she beat the whole division basically. She can have some of the same moves, but the same damn moves almost every time. That’s a BIG no no.

        • BillyGP

          She beat them yes but put them over at the same time but again you seem not to understand you can be put over with out winning. Also a squash is quickly and one sided. A movset is the same damn moves.

        • Jhonmarco

          In 2 minutes? Uh, no you can’t put someone over in 2 minutes. How would it be possible for Mickie to beat all the girls even if they got offense in? It makes them look weak & a moveset does involve moves that repeat themselves, but movesets are supposed to evolve! Something Mickie has failed to do. If you’ve seen one Mickie match you’ve seen them all. She’s had matches with girls like Mia Yim & Mercedes Martinez & stepped up, I just don’t get why she doesn’t do this on a regular basis. Baffling.

        • BillyGP

          A moveset can be the same thing over and over that why it called a moveset. Your comment bout if you seen one Mickie match you seen them all is a false statement. As for the the gaunlet match she did put others over and even if you dont think so it not her fault.

        • Jhonmarco

          I never blamed her personally. I don’t get how you put women over but still pin them in 2 minutes? Winter, Sarita, etc. already had credibility & didn’t need to be put over so them losing regardless if they offense in (in a 2 min. match) was useless. I think Mickie does rely on the same spots too much, but doesn’t get called out about it. Even someone like Velvet has evolved her moveset over the years, while Mickie really hasn’t.

  • HollyRobinsonWWE

    I wonder if Mickie picking up these losses is going anywhere. A heel turn is possible, considering that she also recently brass knuckled Gail out of frustration as well.

    • StraightEdgeCRF

      Either a heel turn or to get her out of the title picture for a while.

  • A.E

    boo no ODB :c

  • Superstar77

    Good to hear Velvet got a win over Mickie. Though I have a hard time believing that an entire crowd turned on Velvet during their match.

    As for Tara vs Gail I’m glad Gail lost. Though it probably means Gail will retain at Against All Odds.

    • http://twitter.com/lostmikeys Kaledrina

      there was definitely no turning on velvet from what i could hear ! out of the kos, other than perhaps christy (when JB was hyping how beautiful she looked), sky was getting the biggest cheers

      like i briefly mentioned above, though, i wouldn’t be surprised if the entire show is just canned heat/cheers. wrestling fans are rude and vulgar, all i kept hearing were swear words being shouted around all night.. even telling the cameramen to move the F out of the way.

      • Superstar77

        Thank you for clearing that up. Whoever wrote that was probably mad that Velvet beat Mickie. LOL

        • VelvetLoveFan

          Your prob. Right
          But I’m glad Velvet won against a great wrestler like Mickie!! Gota love an underdog(:

      • Joel

        Agreed. Way too many ‘YOU FUCKED UP’ ‘YOU FAT BASTARD’ ‘GAYBOY’ chants. I was at the ramp and don’t be suprised if you see many shots of ‘FUCK OFF/YOU’ hand signals.

  • DarknessRuler

    2 losses and people call heel turn? Are you KIDDING ME??? What is happening to Diva Dirt!!??!! Where did all the normal minded people go?

    • Steve_x

      Lol i only say she may be turning heel because of face vs face. Melina was turning heel, after she had that match with Natalya, and walked off, and let laycool attack Natalya.

    • Joel

      Can you not read? People are saying it’s a heel turn because Mickie argued with the ref after the match, didn’t let go of the handshake and wasn’t acting happy with the fans after the match.

      • StraightEdgeCRF

        she may have acted that way due to having an off night.the only way we’ll know for sure that Mickie is turning heel is if she cheats her way into a win during her next match such as holding the tights,using the ropes for leverage,etc.

  • Kevin_G.

    Random: I’m actually kind of excited to see Gail being hit with the Widow’s Peak, it’s been awhile.

  • DjayDay

    Velvet going over Mickie. That sounds pretty interesting. Anyone here attended and know how Hardore Country got beat?

    • http://twitter.com/lostmikeys Kaledrina

      from what i remember, it was something like.. mickie went for the ddt, velvet reversed it and went for her pedigree-style ddt move, which mickie reversed.. and then somehow it ended with sky rolling mickie up, which i didn’t really see as i was a couple rows back and people have big heads in the way.

      • Joel

        From what I remember. Mickie went for DDT, Velvet reversed and went for bulldog, Mickie reversed and went for a roll-up, Velvet reversed the roll up into another roll-up. I could be wrong because I couldn’t see the from their knees down a lot of the time. I was seated ramp-side.

      • DjayDay

        Ah sounds…interesting. Sure it will look great on TV. I love both girls and always wondered how it would turn out. I must say thought, I am pretty surprised Vel got a louder pop then Mickie. Not a knock on Sky, just a little sup rising considering how over Mickie is everywhere.

        When she came to Toronto three years ago when she was still with the WWE she had the loudest pop of the night and Edge and Mysterio were on the card as well.
