Today in History: Angelina Love vs. Awesome Kong at Sacrifice 2009

On this day in history:

May 24th, 2009 | Most people would want to avoid a physical confrontation with Awesome Kong, so you almost couldn’t blame Angelina Love for doing her best to keep away from her. She put her friends in the path of destruction until there was no one left to defend her, and she had no choice but to put her Knockouts Title on the line against Kong at 2009’s Sacrifice. For most of the match Angelina was treated like a rag doll, but a combination of quick thinking and some well-applied mystery spray allowed Angelina to escape with her title in tow. Well, she didn’t actually get to escape. Kong recovered quickly enough to hit Angelina with not one, but two Implant Busters before leaving, looking like the most triumphant loser we’ve ever seen.

What are your memories of this moment? Tell us in the comments!

    Never seen this match until now. I love Kharma/Awesome Kong. She is so beautiful, kind, and funny, i can not wait for her to return. I really want Layla to stay divas champion and get in a feud against kharma. Kharma vs Layla, lay put in a good effort and lose to kharma than get her rematch clause at the next ppv, than kharma can move on to natalya.

      I love Kharma too, but as soon as she returns, she’ll probably be pushed to the top.

    O such a good match I really miss seeing Angelina in the spotlight.

    • FilmJenkins

      With the way she looks now, do we even wanna see her in the spotlight?!

      • number1AngelinaLovefan

        Umm yeah a lot of people want her still in the spotlight…alot of people here on D D want her to beat Gail’s Horrible tittle run. And IMO Angelina still looks Hot! So please speak for yourself

          Angelina is beautiful, yes she is so skinny right now, but still looks great, and honestly feel like she should leave TNA, cause when she came back she was supposed to reign, and then came mickie, then came gail etc, etc. TNA should realize that Gail be the Champ, but Angelina is the true peoples champ in TNA, awesome work with Beautiful People, most title reigns, and she have never, NEVER leave like Gailshit.

    I wish WWE did story lines like this. Spice up the division, make this next generation of Divas rememberable, and legiondary. There are only a handful of divas from this generation i feel will go into the hall of Fame.
    Mickie James, Melina, Beth, Michelle McCool, Eve, and Layla (if she continues to succeed).

    This new generation of divas comming I see big things happening to Aj and Katelyn, and Alicia (i consider Alicia part of this generation of divas)

    I’ve always enjoyed Angelina in the ring and this match was great. I could some similar matches coming our way when Kharma finally redebuts on WWE television.

  • Bethinho

    Angelina only won because of the spray factor and even winning she suffered two Implant Busters.
    that´s this kind of booking that i´m afraid it will be used in WWE:Kharma losing only due to other factors than in ring ones.
