Today in History: Awesome Kong vs. Taylor Wilde, Angelina Love vs. Gail Kim at Victory Road 2008

On this day in history:

July 13th, 2008 | After bursting onto the scene in an open challenge match against Awesome Kong, Taylor Wilde managed to win the Knockouts Title. At 2008’s Victory Road, Kong got her return match and Taylor got her chance to show the win wasn’t a fluke. The rookie did just that, reversing a chokeslam attempt into a surprise pin, pinning Kong and retaining the Knockouts Title. Raisha Saeed and Kong didn’t let her go that easily, ganging up on her until Abyss came to her aid.

Elsewhere on the card, Gail Kim took on Angelina Love, who had cost her a possible Knockouts Title win two months prior. Gail got sweet revenge in the form of a win, but almost found herself outnumbered by Angelina and her Beautiful People teammate Velvet Sky post-match. The two attempted to beat Gail down and place a paper bag over her head, but she managed to slip out of the ring and escape humiliation.
