TNA Lockdown Predictions: Gail Kim vs Velvet Sky

Tonight at Lockdown, Gail Kim defends the Knockouts Championship in a cage match against Velvet Sky. Who’ll walk away with the title? The Diva Dirt team weigh in…

Bobby: Well, this will be interesting to say the least. I like that TNA has kept Gail as the champion for so long because after the travesty that Winter, Velvet Sky, and one of Mickie’s reigns were, I couldn’t take another terrible short mess. I do think it’s time for Gail to lose the title though because there isn’t really anyone left for her to face. All of the women that have been built up during her reign, she’s defeated (except Velvet so far), and the ones she hasn’t feuded with yet don’t seem to be large on TNA’s radar unfortunately. I was not a fan at all of Velvet losing the title so quickly after winning it, and I would love for her to be the one to dethrone Gail and get an actual reign as championshp. I don’t necessarily think it has to be at Lockdown, but I do think within the next two or so pay per views, it should go to Velvet. As for Lockdown, there is no predicting TNA in all honesty so I’m just going to randomly say Velvet Sky regains the title.

Cryssi: FINALLY Velvet Sky gets her rematch for the Knockouts Championship, and color me crazy, I have a feeling she could very well walk away with the victory. Gail Kim never should have gotten the title in the first place in my humble opinion but what’s done is done, and this is the best chance to rectify this. Velvet is so beloved by the TNA faithful and putting her over Gail in a cage match gives her a ridiculous amount of legitimacy. It also gives Gail a chance to go super super heel, having been beaten in a hardcore environment by this supreme babyface. I think a real Gail/Velvet feud would be money for TNA in terms of the Knockouts and it would be a crying shame if they didn’t capitalize on this. Velvet deserves a lengthy reign and I believe she will get it. Velvet Sky will win the championship tonight and if she does, I may just care about TNA again.

Katelyn: I pick Velvet Sky. I really want to see her win after her first reign was so abruptly cut short.

Melanie: My opinion on this may be the unpopular one, but I’d like to see Gail Kim hold the title through July or August. It’s so rare these days that we get super long title reigns for the women on TV and I think it would do so much for the belt to keep it on one champion for a good 10 months or so and I feel that Gail already being so long into her reign already has the best chance of holding that belt for a lengthy period. I remember Kong’s title reigns lasting months and even one of Madison Rayne’s reigns (ouch, headache!) lasting a long time, and I really feel that will help the belt so much. It will make it that much more anticipated when Gail drops the belt. Frankly, I think she’s been great as champion and I enjoy her work. I’d also like to see this feud with Velvet last longer and they could really build up Velvet’s win in the summer. You could have Gail do something dastardly to retain the belt at this pay per view and add more intensity and personal rivalry between the two. Velvet is the ultimate underdog and Gail has been a great heel champion – there’s so much more storyline to explore here. I’m going with my gut and predicting that Gail Kim retains.

Who do you think will win tonight? Tell us in the comments!

    Gotta go with VELVET she deffinitly deserves this and the long title rein.. Looking forward to lockdown!!

  • Brandz785

    As much as I want Velvet to win the belt tonight I agree with what Melanie says. Gail should retain and build a much more tense fued between them and along the way we could see Mickie turn on Velvet .

  • TorrieWilsonFan03

    Velvet deserves it more than any other Knockout, I’m sick of Gail she has had it to easy, I think her losing will make her a more credible heel and they can work on the Madison Rayne alliance/Velvet rivalry storyline for her

  • Isobel Lynette

    I don’t care who wins. I’m just hoping for a good match between these two!

  • Blowbangfan

    I hope Gail Kim wins but I really think that Velvet Sky will. I just hope it’s not something stupid like a DQ loss to Gail Kim due to interference from Madison Rayne. I hope the Knockouts put on a great show and I’m thinking that Velvet will either win on a roll-up or maybe even an Eat Defeat to add insult to injury. Sorry Gail, as much as I’d like to see you win I think your days as Knockout Champion are numbered…

  • Kessuki

    I have to agree with Melanie, its Gail Kim’s to lose and that just wont happen yet IMO. I will be surprised if Velvet wins.

  • xX-Zoey-Sky-Xx

    I see Velvet winning. Then Mickie coming out to celebrate her win only to turn on her telling her it should’ve been her title (When Velvet pinned Mickie a while back to get #1 Contender).

    Gail will be extremely pissed at her title loss and will turn on Madison blaming her for losing the title to Velvet.

    Thats wat i see coming

  • igotthatpma123

    people keep saying velvet deserves this and she has worked so hard, but i just dont see why. i hope gail wins.


    Since Gail’s last WWE run, I’ve craved to see her as a Champion again.
    If you’d have said to me that she’d hold the KO Title for 6 months, I’d have probably gone crazy! However… Why do I want more? I feel like her reign has been good, but NO WHERE NEAR as good as her 1st reign as KO Champ!

    I want Gail to RETAIN her title tonight. I want her to give Velvet a high-flying, submission master-class and come out on top.

    Gail is getting married soon, and going on honey-moon, so MAYBE she’ll get INJURED tonight? Maybe she’ll fall or something?

    I want to see Gail continue her run as a HEEL and then have a face-turn at some point. I want the iMPACT Zone crowd to go CRAZY for her like in 2007/2008!

  • shannymac

    You never know with TNA, but I’m gonna go with Gail retaining tonight. I kind of just don’t see Velver being the one to take the belt off if her.

  • Jhonmarco

  • Kaledrina

    want gail to retain but get the feeling velvet will win, simply because the whole thing feels too rushed? as if tna made new plans?

  • Sherri Martel Fan

  • natalyagailfan2011

    Gail Kim should retain tonight. Maybe have her feud with Velvet Sky for another month before losing the Knockouts Championship to Velvet.
