June 25th, 2009 | While we’re usually not big fans of stipulations that include the words “on a pole”, Daffney and Taylor Wilde‘s “1,000 Thumbtacks” match had our attention. A bag full of thumbtacks hung from a pole in one of corners, and Daffney was the first to grab it, spilling the tacks all over the mat. The Knockouts fought hard to avoid being tossed into the thumbtacks, but Daffney eventually took the fall, being dropped back-first onto them and thereby losing the match. Daffney’s willingness to take big, painful bumps has defined her career, but given her current lawsuit against TNA concerning medical bills from injuries sustained from taking her bumps, hers should be considered a cautionary tale.
