Today in History: Tara Wins the Knockouts Title

On this day in history:

July 9th, 2009 | After defeating Velvet Sky earlier in the night, Tara challenged Knockouts Champion Angelina Love to a match with her title on the line. 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?

    Whenever Lisa/Tara/Victoria decides she wants to retire, I hope she has one final run in WWE with a proper send off. She deserves to retire a champion, like Trish Stratus.

      She will become the second triple crown after mickie

  • Future-Knockout/Diva

    Tara deserves to have a long knockouts title reign, her reigns have been fairly short, she needs one like gails 2nd reign.

    A lot of people hated how Victoria was used in WWE in her last years, and this was a perfect way for her and her fans to say “Fuck You, Vince!”
