Lockdown Results: Cage Can’t Stop Gail Kim’s Title Reign

Another month, another opponent, another victory.

Knockouts Champion Gail Kim scored a win over Velvet Sky tonight at Lockdown inside a steel cage. The win, however, was hardly clean as she rolled up Velvet with a handful of tights to steal the victory from the fan favorite.

Velvet put on a valiant effort wowing the crowd with a powerbomb from the corner which was the highlight of the match.

However, when all was said and done it was Kim who continued her near six month reign as Knockouts Champion.

Having defeated Madison Rayne last month, Tara the month before and Mickie James the month before that, what is next for Gail? Based on tonight’s events it seems that Velvet may get another shot at the title, hopefully continuing build in this feud.

    It’s curious how Gail always beats Mickie and Velvet by cheating.

    • Poison_Ivory

      I think it’s a nice way of Gail beating the 2 continuously without burying them or making them look weak. Plus Gail needs all the heat she can get.

  • Queen Bee

    Heels almost always never win cleanly anyways.

  • chrissy

    both ladies did well I must say….nice match and I do hope this feud continue….maybe they should add angelina in this feud to make it a triple treat…That wud be gr8

  • DarknessRuler

    Really 2 star ratings? The match was good

    • Brandz785

      I bet it’s because Velvet was involved. Smh, haters these days.

    • WWFoverWWE

      People always troll when it comes to rating TNA matches. It could be a five star match but the TNA haters will always rate it a one star. Smh

  • Brandz785

    I’m pretty sure the feud will continue until Slammiversary (which is TNA’s 10th birthday) where Velvet will finally win !

  • shannymac

    Not surprising. Hopefully they’ll use this to continue the feud to make the title change bigger.

  • DarknessRuler

    DivaDirt botch. 1 and 5 are listed as {Best] so people are picking 5 for a FANTASTIC match and some are voting 2 for it was ALMOST fantastic. Haha

  • jen07201

    So what’s next for Velvet? And who is next for Gail Kim?

    • WWFoverWWE

      In a perfect world it would be Sarita challenging Gail next.

      • jen07201

        Yes it would be intresting.

    • http://twitter.com/lostmikeys Kaledrina

      i could still see velvet getting another shot, due to the way the match ended (and also, as much as people here don’t seem to like her, velvet does actually have a legit huge following).. but i guess tna is tna, they like to surprise and that’s cool.

      personally, i would like to see traci defeat gail. :)

      • jen07201

        Where is Traci?

        • http://twitter.com/lostmikeys Kaledrina

          good question LOL been missing for a few months now? still on the roster page if that means anything, though.

  • WWFoverWWE

    I’m actually shocked. I expected a new champion since Lockdown has a history of crowning new knockout champs.

    I hope Mickie is not the one who beats Gail, that would be to predictable.

    • Mickie-DT

      You and I the same! I thought Velvet would finally get her reign again but I guess not…

      Every time I see your icon I burst out laughing. I love your icon!!!

      • WWFoverWWE

        haha thanks!

    Angelina *clap calp clap* Brooke Tessmacher *clap calp clap* Angelina *clap calp clap* Brooke Tessmacher *clap calp clap*

    Anyways, I kinda want to see the match. Hope we get a new challenger. Angelina or Brooke anyone ?

    • number1AngelinaLovefan

      Yes Angelina that girl needs a shot down become the HBIC

      • number1AngelinaLovefan

        Sorry stupid phone I meant *she needs a shot Now and become the new HBIC

      • Kessuki

        totes agree. Angelina for 6x KO’s Champion!!!!

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

        Yess!! Angelina,Sarita, or brooke. Angelina especially. Sarita is feuding with EY& ODB now, so that leaves her out. I’d even take brooke. She’d play the underdog role good

  • Kessuki

    and i am right just as i predicted earlier. nice to see gail’s reign continue. i kind of appreciate long title reigns because it makes the KO belt feel more prestigious now that its the oldest womens belt on mainstream tv. i hope angelina love or traci brooks are next in line for a title match. velvet has had a title shot and come unlucky and i dont see her getting another match so soon IMO.

  • Brandz785

    yes tag match ! hoping rosarita wins !

    • WWFoverWWE

      they lost-_-

  • jen07201

    So am I the only one who wants to see Mickie and Velvet go after the tag titles?

    • Blowbangfan

      I want to see that too, but I also want to see Mickie James turn on Velvet Sky and become top contender for the Knockout Championship since either her, or ODB or Tara are the most legitimate and toughest threats to Gail. Angelina Love is talented too, but really she’s too skinny to challenge and she’s got to pick up some wins before she’s even in the picture. Tara would make great sense, but Mickie James is who I’d prefer most and a heel turn would be awesome. Either way, I love heel and face MJ!

      • fragile

        if mickie goes heel, that would bring a new meaning to phrase hardcore country. ;)

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/LovableLittleRabbit?feature=mhum Megumi

    Poor Velvet.
    Built the division from the ground up, only girl who stayed with them through thick and thin, and she gets this stupidity.

    Match was bland, almost to a cringe-worthy extent. It had one good spot, no use of the cage, and a stupid and predictable ending. Both ladies were technically sound though. There was no carrying, there was no botches, and it was clean.

    So about a 3 from me, personally. I’d give it a 2.5 if I could.

    • cheerleadermelissafan

      Built the division from ground up? Ummm, I don’t think so. Gail, Jackie, and Traci built the division.

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/LovableLittleRabbit?feature=mhum Megumi

        That’s your opinion, the knockouts were nothing before that battle royal, they were nothing without The Beautiful People to give them ratings and attention either. LOL.

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

          Angelina & Velvet are the TNA originals. Always have been with tna. Thats where they started, and that probably where they’ll finish.

          Yes, gail was there at the start and she was the first KO’s champ. But she left the company. While angelina and velvet never did.

        • cheerleadermelissafan

          Then I guess it really must be my opinion. To me, the knockout division was built through women who went out in that ring and proved they were more than “Divas”. Velvet did nothing to further that image, and actually hindered the division in some ways. I do agree that her along WITH Angelina brought in ratings, but so did the other girls.

        • igotthatpma123

          Um girl bye this division was made by the hard work of Gail and Kong, roxxi blading and destroying her body for this division,the beautiful people were a success because of Angelina strong in ring skills and Shawn micheals like ability to cut amazing promos when this division first started nobody was checking for velvet everybody wanted Angelina to Marty janetty her ass. Angelina has gotten the shitty end of the stick she’s the better worker and the better talker… the division is so medicore right now and people just love it and that’s the saddest thing ever.

    • cheerleadermelissafan

      Yes, Gail left the company. We all know that, so I don’t see the point in bringing up something so Irrelevant. I said Velvet did not build the division from ground up; she barely paid a role in its initial start. So the fact that Gail left has nothing to do with the fact that she helped create the division. So I don’t see the logic in bringing up the fact that Gail left the company.

      • MomoMufFinSsFTW

        Imo Gail made the division. but with the help of Traci and kong of course!

  • igotthatpma123

    Thank you lord jesus!!!! i give u all the praise!!

  • Blowbangfan

    I’m glad that Gail Kim won the match and defended the title successfully against Velvet Sky. I posted earlier how I would like to see Mickie James be the #1 contender or ODB or Tara. ODB is doing her thing with EY as the Knockouts Tag-Team Champs and Tara (along with Brooke Tessmacher) have been out of sight but let’s be honest; Mickie James is much more fun to watch than Tara! Love the bubbly and always suprisingly athletic superstar that MJ is so hopefully she can dethrone the dominant Gail Kim one day…or not if GK wants to show the world that she is the most dominant woman in sports entertainment history. I don’t see that as being true so let’s go Mickie! I think it would totally dent Gail Kim’s prestigious career as a Knockout if she were to lose her belt to Velvet Sky. I’m not sold on Velvet so much other than her being hot and slutty. Mickie James on the other hand, has it all…

  • BillyGP

    I hope Mickie does beat Gail in fact at this point i hope ANYONE beats Gail she only lost once since returning to TNA in single matches.

  • fragile

    best match i’ve seen from velvet…

  • MickieJamesFan07

    I thought the match was so freaking boring. nothing stood out except the powerbomb. why even have a cage match if ur not even going to use it as a weapon? I am glad Velvet didnt win, I think shes a terrible wrestler. bitch about my opinion if u want. but at the end of the day thats what it is: My opinion. I will be happy once gail isnt champ anymore too. her reign has been very stale like Beth’s.

    • fragile

      “why even have a cage match if ur not even going to use it as a weapon?”

      seems that was a theme for most of matches at lockdown.

      didn’t seem the cage was used much unless someone was trying to escape.

      i liked velvet a lot more when she was working the underdog theme.yes i’m that much of a push over. :)

      MICKIEJAMESFAN07, i will agree with you about gail’s current reign not having me saying encore.and i like gail lots more than velvet.

      maybe what we’re seeing this round with gail is what her first reign would have been like if she didn’t have kong ???

      she doesn’t have a definitive rivalry this reign.

  • FilmJenkins

    I take it that this title reign was a part of Gail’s signing bonus, but dammit it’s TOO LONG and BORING!

    TNA really has done the impossible by making me sick of Gail Kim.

    Velvet should be champ and everyone knows it. Especially her haters.

  • Mikas

    This was probably Velvet’s best match in her career. Overall the entire ppv was good, only 2 bad matches. But very disappointed in the TN crowd. They finally do a ppv outside of the IZ and then we end up with this crowd?

  • gingerjaffa

    at some point in time velvet needs to start dominating matches and not be booked so much as the underdog always taking bumps with little offence, to make her look more credible, i thought this match wasn’t bad i enjoyed it, but the ending was awful

  • http://twitter.com/jeremysalvatico jeremycanrana

    that was an amazing match ! Velvet’s wrestling was great! Gail kim was absolutely fantastic THAT CLOTHESLINE WAS HELLISH!
    I think,if one day they give Sarita a storyline for the championship it won’t be until a face gets the belt … And I think that’s what they plan on doing if Velvet gets the belt

  • DAFereldan91

    The match, to me, is mediocre at best….. There was no blatant botches in the match, but nothing particularly stood out for me, except that Powerbomb, though it still looked a bit stiff from the way it looked when Velvet landed on her feet. And there is one thing I do not and will never understand- Velvet Sky has been wrestling like how many years, why is she still wrestling awkwardly? Her selling and offence never looked convincing to me and I just can’t get it! And why have a steel cage match when you are not using it as an offensive weapon? Sheesh! -_-
