TNA Slammiversary Results: Brooke Tessmacher Wins Knockouts Title

Call it home state advantage, or just plain luck, but Brooke Tessmacher ended Gail Kim‘s historic title reign tonight at Slammiversary.

Brooke, a Texas native, defeated the champion in Arlington, Texas, at the pay per view which marks TNA’s 10 year anniversary.

After being dominated by the veteran champion for much of the match, Brooke scored the victory after countering a Tess Shocker (Gail tried to school Brooke by using her own finisher, just as Brooke did to her) into a victory roll for the three-count.

Last month Brooke told us exclusively that winning the Knockouts Title would mean she’s “proven to the people that doubted me, or people that go, ‘Oh she’s just a model’ or ‘Oh she’s just gonna come and go’ – it’s gonna prove that I’m here to stay.”

She continued: “It’s going to prove that I am a real threat. It’s going to prove that I am a threat in the Knockouts division and all of those girls should worry every time they step in the ring with me. And it’s going to prove that I’m finally a real professional wrestler. That I’m not just a model.”

Congratulations, Brooke!

Happy with the result? Tell us in the comments!

    i never saw any of brooke when she was in wwe but i remember people being a bit meh towards her when she first joined tna.. hope she’s proved all them people wrong now.

    perhaps now we’ll get the chance to see some more from the likes of love, winter, sarita and rosita.

    oh and i hope gail gets a rematch.. they seem to forget them pesky things when it comes to the kos.

    On ya Brookey!

  • SweeneyTodd

    Worst TNA Knockouts PPV Match….since? Like the divas division, the Knockout Division goes down the hill.

    • number1AngelinaLovefan

      O come on…..It was NO 5 but i was WAY better than a Divas Match! by like 100000X

      • SweeneyTodd

        No. Many botches…special at the end.

      • Jhonmarco

        Actually it was pretty boring. Beth/Layla at least had a bit excitement.

        • number1AngelinaLovefan

          Yes it was kinda boring but, It was Still more time and better outcome than the Divas

        • Jhonmarco

          The Diva got 8 minutes, the Knockouts got 7 here. The better outcome? Layla should’ve won.

      • stchick

        he’s being a p*ssant (him and indy snob shimmerfan on the other thread)so don’t worry ange fan

      Sweentodd,in the words of Chris Jericho ‘will you please shut the hell up!’ you are just jealous that Brooke Tessmacher is the hottest woman in Impact Wrestling and is now the TNA Knockouts Champion.also,take that BORING UNINTERESTING TALENTLESS WWE Diva Search reject off of your avatar because she sucks!

      • JamieKym

        Wasn’t Brooke in the 2006 diva search and ending up losing and Layla won? And Layla is a better wrestler than Brooke. Resign.

        Anyways, Congrats Brooke. You Earned it.

      • SweeneyTodd

        Brooke botched the whole finish idiot.

        • SweeneyTodd

          And by the way. Who was fired from the wwe? Yes Brooke. Not even in her hometown Brooke was over. The only reaction: Some Let’s go Gail chants.

        • BillyGP

          Brooke got a reaction and so what she was fired from WWE your point so was Mickie James?

          No one perfect Layla botches too you know is she a idiot?

      • SweeneyTodd

        “Brooke Tessmacher is the hottest woman in Impact Wrestling and is now the TNA Knockouts Champion”

        1) Two of the worst fake boobs of wwe
        2) Hot = Not Talent
        3) Worst TNA Knockout Match since a long time…and that against a Gail Kim, one of the greastest wrestling woman.

          Sweeneytodd,”And by the way. Who was fired from the wwe? Yes Brooke. Not even in her hometown Brooke was over. The only reaction: Some Let’s go Gail chants.” Brooke was GLAD that the WWE fired her because they are nothing but an asshole wrestling company with a piece of shit WWE Divas division.” 1) Two of the worst fake boobs of wwe
          2) Hot = Not Talent
          3) Worst TNA Knockout Match since a long time…and that against a Gail Kim, one of the greastest wrestling woman.” Brooke should’ve benn in Maxim Magazine’s 2012 Hot 100 List and NOT that BORING Diva Search reject Layla that NOBODY gives two shits about.the TNA Knockouts Championship match was pretty good.there was just simply a ring chemistry problem in the match.Gail Kim is nothing but a PATHETIC gold digging losing jobbing whining crying complaining little piece of shit bitch who went backstage for three years and got on her knees and sucked Vince McMahon’s cock and voluntarily laid her ass down to a bunch of BORING WWE Diva Search rejects almost every week.

    • Bhentoooot

      have you watched Layla early career matches. Shes not that even good. she was carried by Beth, yes Carried compare that to her match with Nikki/Brie. but gotta admit she’s better now but not so good. she still looks like a little girl in the ring. at least Tessmacher gave us decent matches she needs time and build up.

  • http://www.tpwprowrestling.freeforums.org Juan

    Im hoping she has a nice title run and we dont get any hot potatoing (idk if thats a word) of the KO title.

  • Brandz785

    I’m legitimately happy for Brooke, I can’t wait to see what she brings as champ. Although I was kinda upset the Gail lost.

  • number1AngelinaLovefan

    So happy For Miss Tessmacher Love her….She really has improved and i am SO happy we have a new KO’s Champ Wooooo #TESSFLOCKER

  • Kessuki

    pretty decent match. voted it a 3 for a lack of good spots. hoped gail retained but now realise its best miss tessmacher won so we get to see the other anon heels; winter, angelina. i got my fingers crossed mickie turns heel very soon.

    • Kessuki

      forgot to mention Sarita.

      • number1AngelinaLovefan

        Yes with a Heel champ all you see is Faces(Which i am now seeing) Haha never noticed that before. But my god i really hope now that we have a Face Champ we will see more Angelina and Sarita/Rosita….and for sure Heel Mickie!….And i guess Winter.

        Feel kinda bad for the girl she was pushed hard….and than she just slowly faded into the back with Miss love very sad IMO

  • Milo

    NO GOD! NO! GOD! PLEASE! NO! NO! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  • MRvinaro

    Didn’t like the match

    So brooke is the first Model to win the belt woow

    I see TNA takes the WWE way !!
    No surprise there

    Even though brooke did improve but still not enough

    • perceval

      But, who’s Roll-Up finisher is better, Brooke’s or Kelly’s?

      • MRvinaro

        will brooke almost botched so my answer Is Kelly

        • BillyGP

          Why bring Kelly into this?

          No Brooke dont mean she the first model to win the title she was saying people doubted her because of her modeling and that she wasnt serious enough for wrestling.

        • perceval

          @BILLYGP

          “Why bring Kelly into this?”

          Because Brooke paid tribute to her old friend and partner, the legendary Divas Champion that has just maybe retired, unless she hasn’t. It was very touching.

      Mrvinaro,”Didn’t like the match

      No surprise there

      Even though brooke did improve but still not enough” Brooke Tessmacher is NOT a model jackass.she is a professional wrestler.so,get it right.TNA is in NO WAY a WWE because at least TNA puts their women’s championship title belt on ATHELETES.

  • stchick

    some are so rude they can’t be happy for the girl (like the person above^^)

    • MRvinaro

      I like brooke alot but still it’s early for her to win
      still happy for her though

  • MickieJamesFan07

    Glad to see the title finally off Gail, her reign was so damn boring. As for the match, I didn’t like it. Hella boring and sloppy. Their other match was way better.

  • WWFoverWWE

    I said this on my prediction. The fact that she pinned Mickie showed the title change was possible.

    I don’t think this was the right move but hopefully some new fueds open up.

  • http://facebook.com/mykael.kennedy mykel1990

    We all know I’ve been a stark Brooke supporter, so I’m stoked she finally won the TNA Knockouts title! I hope she only gets better and does great Tessnificant things from here!!

    • http://facebook.com/mykael.kennedy mykel1990

      *Tessnificent.

  • WWFoverWWE

    I feel so sad for Sarita, now even Tessmacher has been knokckouts champion and Sarita has never even gotten a title match. What the hell TNA?

    • http://www.twitter.com/swax1 swax1

      Wwfoverwwe,don’t worry.Sarita will be the one who defeats Brooke Tessmacher to become the TNA Knockouts Champion :-)

  • DarknessRuler

    The match was pretty bleh. I feel like both Knockouts felt pressure due to all the good matches that had aired before them so they felt like they needed to step up their game. Sadly, we all saw how they sorta miscommunicated in the beginning so they instead decided to take it slow.

    This match had shades of Beth vs Kelly. Gail dominates, Brooke wins by roll-up.

  • sugarrush28

    I love Brooke so i’m glad she won. Now maybe we can see Sarita, Rosita and Angelina get some screentime. Also must we still label the women that were models before as models? If you are you gonna do that I want to start seeing people being called out for working at McDonalds, Walmart or even being a nurse before starting to wrestle. This idea that just because a woman was a model excludes her from being a wrestler is pretty dumb to me. Modeling doesn’t determine if you can wrestle or not it’s woman herself that does.

  • lucky1now

    im proud of her and cant wait to see what happens next

  • Future-Knockout/Diva

    Congrats to brooke well deserved!

  • BillyGP

    was a good match despite what some say. Glad Brooke won no more burying the division for Gail.

  • WinterAngel94

    YES, YES, YES, YES, YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!! Brooke Tessmacher won!!!!!! So freaking happy right now!!!!!

  • redsandman99

    Good for Brooke though I don’t see her having a big long reign.

  • shameronstar

    Were Trish or Candice ready when they got their first titles? Probably not, but when youR building a rookie into a star you have to start somewhere, and I feel Brooke has improved enough to have a good initial test run with the title. Plus, when her reign as champion is over she’ll look more credible as a performer and that’s how freshmens of wrestling become sophomores and so on!

    • No Holds Barred

      I think Candice was ready for her reign, at her point she was better than Brooke is now. Candice had worked hard to improve and got her reward, I wish she had got a 2nd reign in 2008 when she feuded with Beth again

      Trish I don’t think was ready for that first reign, she was still in training and made the occasional botch (see Jackie vs Trish). By the time her 2nd reign came I believe she was definitely ready for that.
