On this day in history:

May 11th, 2008 | At 2008’s Sacrifice, the Knockouts took part in a Makeover Battle Royal, the winner becoming the number one contender to Awesome Kong‘s Knockouts Title. A Battle Royal would take place, and the final two competitors (Gail Kim and Roxxi Laveaux) would then compete in a Ladder match, the loser having her head shaved. Complicating matters a bit more was the fact that Gail had won immunity on Impact, so even if she lost, she wouldn’t lose her hair. Angelina Love, the last woman eliminated from the Battle Royal, would take her place in the barber’s chair. Therefore, Angelina did all she could to ensure that Gail won, and her efforts succeeded. Gail won the match and became the number one contender, while Roxxi was forced to have her head shaved.

What are your memories of this moment?


  1. The booking her was just all over weird. And you can hear what the fans thought about it with the “fire Russo” chants.

    Funny story about this match from Gail’s dvd: she got knocked silly on the spine buster spot. So after the match she forgot the finish and she literally thought she was supposed to put Angelina in the chair. All that brawl afterwards nobody knew what was going on lol

    • The booking to this match was so confusing. You’d think with how horrendous the beautiful people were to the entire division Gail would’ve let Roxxi win so Love would get her comeuppance. There were so many better ways they could’ve done this. Was it Roxxi’s idea to get her head shaved like it was Molly’s?
