On this day in history:

One Widow’s Peak later, Tara was crowned the new Knockouts Champion. This was her first Knockouts Title victory, and her emotional reaction told us how much winning it meant to her. Yes, the woman known for taunting her opponents with her pet tarantula does have a heart–who knew?
