Bound for Glory Results: Tara Wins Knockouts Title, Reveals Her Hollywood Boyfriend

The teacher just schooled the student at TNA’s biggest event of the year.

Veteran Knockout, Tara, won her fifth Knockouts Championship by defeating her former best friend and student, Brooke Tessmacher, at Bound for Glory tonight (October 14th).

The victory makes Tara a six time champion in TNA (counting a Knockouts Tag Title reign), and eight time champion in the mainstream, factoring in two runs as WWE Women’s Champion.

Tara picked up the victory after hitting the Widow’s Peak on Brooke after Brooke missed an elbow drop from the top rope.

After the match, however, the mystery of Tara’s mysterious Hollywood boyfriend was solved as she introduced Mr Pectacular, Jessie Godderz, of Big Brother fame.

Tara previously told Diva Dirt regarding her boyfriend: “He’s a big deal, I’ll be honest. You’ll be familiar who he is. I’m excited. I’m biting my tongue not to say anything. He’s super dreamy. I can’t wait for you guys to see him.”

Godderz was signed by TNA last year and has been training in Ohio Valley Wrestling, the company’s developmental territory.

The title win is a significant one, too, as at 41 years old, Tara is one of the most accomplished female wrestlers in mainstream wrestling on TV, where careers for female talents tend to end in the early-to-mid 30s.

Congratulations to Tara on the big win!

    I was sorta bummed with Tara’s heel turn at first, because she’s not the “psycho” we once knew and loved. She’s more like, the heel-cougar from Smackdown before her career with WWE ended. But I’m getting use to her again. Nice push.

  • ZPZA

    Heel cougar? I want to see where this leads for Tara’s character. I wonder if there going to make her into a nympho..

  • RedHotVixen

    I’m thrilled for her! I really enjoyed the match and I’m glad that she won it cleanly. I’ll be honest, I have no idea who this boyfriend dude is (I don’t watch “reality” shows) but I have a feeling that these two will be very entertaining.

    • pumped up kicks

      Yea im totally happy she won but I have NOOO IDEA who that guy is lol… He’s kinda cute tho.

    • Raekon

      I googled him and he seems to be a wrestler aswell. :)
      Really hope he gets signed to be her valet like Stevie Richards was when she was victoria.

  • WWEStarInTraining

    Hopefully Gail turns face and challenges Tara

  • Slapavel

    Yes , I’m sooo happy !

  • OJ Von Erich

    Tara & Jessie vs ODB & Eric Young?

  • OJ Von Erich

    Oh and AWESOME top rope hurricanrana from Tessmacher… BEST SPOT OF THE MATCH!!! =D

  • Bdawg0701

    I would love it if SARITA or ROSITA gets a shot at the KO title now. Two talents that haven’t been used yet.

  • lucky1now

    I’m proud of lisa and all she’s done in the business so far
    I hope this run is great for her

  • Raekon

    Congrats Tara! So happy for her. :)

  • jim462

    Im thrilled to death that Tara is the knockouts champion again it adds so much credibility to the title being held by Tara. But TNA has her Hollywood Boyfriend be this dude from Big Brother nobody even knows wtf? Geez TNA akll that time and that weas the best you could come up with

  • ajfan83

    Good for her. She’s put in a hell of a lot more years than the women she had to play second fiddle to back in her WWE years. I know some people pretend longevity doesn’t matter, but it should. Rock on, Tara.

    • melon2617

      I get what you’re saying, but to be fair, longevity isn’t really something a lot of women can afford.

      Most women’s fertility naturally decreases shortly after they turn 27, so if they want a family, then they need to take their bows early so that they can have a family. It’s the worst kept secret that women wrestlers struggle with infertility/fertility issues (Jillian Hall & Candice have both struggled with miscarriages, Luna Vachon mentioned that infertility was common. Trish Stratus openly talked about having a child right after her marriage, even showcased her future nursery on a Canadian TV show, but has now taken the PR “Soon” route similar to Sandra Bullock, prompting speculation that she too is struggling.) so naturally, women need to get out of the business if they want a family.

      I can only assume that Lisa Marie and her husband didn’t feel kids were in the cards for them, so good for her for continuing to work and looking good doing it. For 41 she’s looking pretty amazing and she’s still putting on good matches. Congrats to her.

  • Milo

    Happy for the vicory of Tara, but I see to Tara limited, I expected more from her tonight and to kick the butt of “Wonder Woman and Hooters”

  • Spike7000

    On WWE note: the identity of the mysterious brunette other New Diva who popped up in a group photo that Audrey Marie posted on her twitter is Alisha Ceraso. Ceraso is a fitness model and competed in the WBFF Fitness Atlantic competition

    • igotthatpma123

      And ur point was..???

    • Jake

      You could of just emailed Diva Dirt with that info. lol

      • magicmike191

        I don’t think the listen to the emails I sent them some emails none worked

  • GlamSlamFan

    So happy for her!
    Maybe she can get a decent length reign this time?

  • art

    How is this dude mr hollywood??..”who are you” chants tell you no one knows who the hell he is…at least tara got the title & might get a decent run with the title…

  • LaylaElFan

    I’m soooo happy for Tara,and her bofriend :)

  • MNM4ever

    I really really want to see the match and tara’s promo after!!! Happy to see tara as champion once again and im sure her and this ‘hollyood boyfirend’ will conntinue to to entertain me. Hopefully, more good storyline continues from TNA,, matches are always brilliant :)

  • Rhawk

    First The Young Bucks, and now Jesse Godderz? Tara has a bit of a wild side to her doesn’t she? ;-)
    Either way Im miffed about this, I mean Im happy for Tara and shes more than deserving, but unless she actually gets a title reign that last more than a few months then it would be just another pointless switch. Hopefully this doesn’t happen and Tara holds the belt for a nice length of time.

  • Juan

    Also I forgot to say Happy 5th Birthday to the Knockouts division and title!! Can’t believe its been 5 years already!! :

  • Bethinho

    congrats to Tara,but so much hype about her “hollywood boyfriend” and “we” get this Jessie guy?a big brother star?!?ROTFL…..

  • divaindemise

    Shitty payoff and, honestly, the wrong characterisation for Tara. There’s already two comedy workers – ODB and Madison Rayne – so I see no reason to sanitise one of their more tenacious heels in the division.

    Absolutely adore the bones of Tara. This is her second title victory at Bound For Glory, no? Here’s hoping her reign lasts longer than her rest.


    Yes,happy for Tara,but her boyfriend……………. I hope the new challenger will be Sarita.

  • Nostalgia

    Ummm did they forget he was gay

    • ItsRayVolution

      No he’s not…come on now :\

  • MrHVaron

    I don’t think people get that the point of him being hyped up as a Hollywood star was a joke. Even the announcers played it off a joke. I think it was just to show Tara’s humor by making all these A-List demands. And while it’s funny, I don’t think she’ll be a “comedy character”, I think she’ll be more of the person who thinks they’re way better and higher than they really are. Think MNM.

    • MNM4ever

      i miss MNM SO MUCH! Melina shone whilst in that group. To me one of the greatest tag teams; they did so much in a short time :)
