Lockdown Results: The Killer Queen Still Reigns

Tonight at TNA Lockdown, Madison Rayne escaped from the steel cage with the Knockouts Title still around her waist.

Her battle with Gail Kim saw them bust out several high risk moves, but Madison’s final trip to the top rope – resulting in a diving spear to Gail – earned her the pin and the win.

Lei’D Tapa couldn’t do much from outside the cage, and was thus forced to watch as Madison pinned Gail and retained the Knockouts Title.

What did you think of the match?

  • Diva Lover!!!

    Ending was bad

    • kewlkatz

      lmao as opposed to 90% of the Divas matches where the entire match is dreadful

  • BorisG

    I loved the match, it had great spots but the ending was bad. I would have preferred if Madison jumped from top of the cage.

  • Jen7201

    I liked the match I hope Madison keeps using the spear as a finisher it’s unique for her because she is small and not that strong but she is fast which can provide more impact for the spear.

    • Chad

      the way she delivers it and gail takes it everytime time makes it look so good.

    • drunkendramaqueen

      Agreed. The Rayne Drop doesn’t look too lethal to be a finisher, no matter how well you sell it.

  • Jen7201

    Madison proved some people wrong they said she wouldn’t take bumps but she did I am liking her move set more now that she is a face and big props to Gail as always for taking big bumps.

  • Alex Castaneda

    OMG I would totally go see the match in person, if my nieces birthday isn’t today since I live 30 minutes away from BankUnited Center.

  • xEatDefeatx

    Loved the spear from the top rope. Let’s see what happens next, if their feud still does continue.

  • iCandy

    when taryn returns her and madison need to have a spear off

    • BorisG

      Yess Taryn also used spears.

  • drunkendramaqueen

    You could tell both women worked really hard and, being completely fair, there were more than enough good spots to incorporate the presence of the cage. Ending was a bit dodgy, but it didn’t taint an otherwise good match that surpassed my expectations. Madison’s never rated highly in my estimations as a grappler, but I felt this was decidedly one of her stronger showings in a long, long while.

    So where does Madison go from here? Extending the feud with Gail certainly isn’t too bad for business, but it would be nice to see a freshening up of the division. If Tapa was more refined in the ring, I’d have no problem with her being unleashed as the Knockouts resident monster heel MVP.

  • WomenWrestlingRevolution 014

    Santana needs to debut ASAP

  • Jen7201

    I might be only one but I would be ok if Gail and Madison had another stipulation match

    • I love Melina

      I would DIE FOR ANOTHER STIPULATION MATCH!!!!!!!!!! because they are 2 amazing workers. Now would be great, but I would probably save it for further down the line

  • K8tlyn.Lover

    Shanna needs to come SOON!

  • Donatello Wilson

    I completely forgot about Lockdown. Was the match good?

    • shameronstar

      TWD was pretty good tonight! This Terminus arc they’re entering is going to be interesting:)

      • Donatello Wilson

        I’m wondering who took Beth. i KNEW I would be seeing those guys Rick encountered again

        • shameronstar

          Beth’s kidnapping might have something to do with Terminus, and next week it’s going to be crazy because Tyrese’s group to me is the most interesting because they’ve been building theTyrese/Carol/Lizzie storyline since the beginning of this season!

          • Donatello Wilson

            It is, I been telling people Tyreese is in the most unsafe group with Carol killing Karen and Lizzie being bat shit crazy. IDK if you watch Talking Dead but they showed a sneak peak of next week showing Lizzie playing with a zombie. Creepy as hell!

          • shameronstar

            This Joe character and his group seem really suspect, so I’m sure Daryl will be very leery of them, and it was a nice sentimental touch how they finally made Bobsha official. This episode helped me understand both Bob and Sasha better as individuals and as a couple!

          • Donatello Wilson

            I don’t know if they are “officially” officially a couple. Sasha didn’t seem too into that kiss. I was good to see Bob’s past a little and got a good understanding why he wants the group back together the most. When you see a character like Joe take a punch and laughs, you know he’s bad news

          • shameronstar

            When Joe and his men see Rick again, Mr. Grimes better beware, and I’m going to love Rick’s reaction to seeing Carol with the baby and the entire groups reaction to seeing Tara who use to work for the Governor!

          • Donatello Wilson

            Gonna be one of the most awkward reunions EVER on walking dead

          • shameronstar

            and Eugene will say awkwardly,”I’m smarter than ALL of you!”

    • I love Melina

      YEEEEEEEEES very very good mtch from the KO’s. Up there with the gail vs taryn matches for me . Gail and madison were stellar. Very entertaining and back and forth. had me very excited, and that big match feeling to it. I LOVED IT. best match in a long time

  • I love Melina

    WOOOOOW Seriously great job from both Madison & Gail. Taryn & gail set high standards, and madison & gail definitely matched that standard. My favourite match in along time (as well as Paige vs Emma). It was very physical and intense, and had really entertaining spots. That neckbreaker was just “OH MY GOD!!!!!”, and loved the creativity with the head stomp on the cage. Also the way gail threw her body into the cage was just captivating. Great wrestling from both women. And tapa was hilarious screaming from the outside. This make excited for the future of the division. CONGRATS MADISON. THE RAYNE OF MADISON CONTINUES lol wonder whats next

    • zinc445 .

      I haven’t watched the match but from the feedback I would agree, a realistic and solid KO match. exceeded my expectations!
      Both women risked it!

      • I love Melina

        yeeeees it was serisouly so great!!!! I knew these 2 could put on a classic, and this just made me wish TNA had put even more focus on them lol Classic cage match for sure. It was really brutal & both definitely risked it. Gail’s selling of the spots was just sickening; and the neckbreaker spot was giving me taryn vs gail flashbacks. LIKE WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!!!!!! I was seriously shaking through out the whole matchl it was soooo unpredictable & back and forth. And felt like they were fighting for really high stakes. The entertaining spots were amazing too. It just felt so nice, because this is how I love the knockouts. big future for the division

  • Kaledrina

    the ending felt a bit out of place, but still a great match overall.

    looking forward to what comes next. another match? a new contender? i’d be happy for either tbh. even in seeing tapa step up as the next contender.

    i was a bit disappointed in the shaw/hemme story, though! a part of me wanted christy to pull off a heel turn and go all bad bitch valet on us :)

    • clintocki

      I really wanted a Christy heel turn too! :D

      • Kaledrina

        yeah! once earl got knocked out i thought hemme would do the old smash the door in anderson’s face thing. there still time for her to go bad, though!

    • charovnica

      Agreed about the Cage match.

      And LOL Christy’s screams and facial expressions made me laugh instead of feeling sorry for her :D Would’ve been epic if she screwed Anderson over

    • zinc445 .

      I liked the ending better than her climbing down and using the Rayne drop, it worked for me I didn’t expect that. Gail’s neck breaker was the best spot for me. I hope we see a new contender ready to challenge Madison at Sacrifice, but I am just wondering when’ll Santana make her debut? And other KO’s I’m hoping at this weeks tapings we get 1 debut!

  • Jen7201
    • K8tlyn.Lover

      LOL At the comment xD

    • Vincent Is Valentine

      You forgot the lame dance-off’s! ku ku ku ku ku |:3

    • BorisG

      dead at shade to Divas. Knockouts are the best!

    • charovnica

      LOL that tweet was everything!

  • K8tlyn.Lover

    She didn´t beat Gail, she lost, and I was saying she needs to come to TNA full time.

  • I love Melina

    this shows just how risky this spot was with madison and gail. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW what an awesome spot; signature madison haha

    • Vincent Is Valentine

      I may have to reconsider my views on the Queen Bee.

      Good showing, Champ!

      • I love Melina

        Yeeeeeeees!!!!!!!!! Dayuummm she is bringing it in-ring as a face. The match was incredible, as was the entire ppv. Im so frickin glad I watched it. The number of painful//entertaining spots in the KO’s match was very refreshing. Both women did phenomenal jobs, and it really has me excited for the KO’s this year. they really set the bar high lol Im sure madison will continue flourishin during her rayne ;)

    • BorisG

      I loved itt!

      • I love Melina

        yeeees me too :D the shriek that I made during this spot was just….. hahahahhaha I was out of control with excitement whilst watching. I really thought gail had it with the near falls

  • Vincent Is Valentine

    After watching this PPV, I can honestly say (despite Samoa Joe’s loss) that it was money well-spent!

    Mad love to TNA for reigniting my passion for their product!!

  • Vincent Is Valentine

    Had Samoa Joe won, I would’ve given this #LOCKDOWNMiami PPV a score of up to…

    • I love Melina

      My fave ppv in years literally hahahah loved all of it

  • zinc445 .

    Madison proved me wrong!
    Awesome stuff to both KO’s!
    Match of the year c!

    • I love Melina

      My favourite match of the year, definitely a match of the year candidate. WOOOOOW they really set the bar high for any new knockouts. It was just amazing to see the KO’s get this trust from TNA once again. SOOOOO REFRESHING. I told you Queen Madison would prove everyone wrong ;) ahahahaha Taryn is getting hungry to come back and get it on with gail or madison :p

      • zinc445 .

        TNA has raised the bar again, I haven’t watched the match but heard it got awesome feedback. Possibly close to Gail/Taryn!
        I’m glad there was no debut actually, I think it would have taken some spot light away from the amazing match we got! Maybe thursday see Madison cut a promo hopefully.

        • I love Melina

          Overall it was seriously amazing, awesome match. Definitely MOTY worthy for me, but looks it will have plenty of competition with the improvement of the KO division thus far and those new and old faces lurking around hahha I completely agree that a debut was in no way needed at lockdown. MADISON AND GAIL deserved the spotlight. IM intrigued to see what happens at live impact, surely there’ll be a debut!!!!!!!!! im so happy with how physical madison and gail got. The cage made it brutal. I think madison hit the steel hard like 3 times; and the neckbreaker was breathtaking, as was Madison’s leg stomp thingy on top of the cage. No words can describe gail’s selling

          Btw link is here if you want to watch :D http://veedio.info/dailymotion.php?url=kaLqVbL1DBQVn85TObH

          • zinc445 .

            Thanks! Just watched it!
            AMAZING MATCH! so ,many good spots, I loved when Gail hit that neck breaker! best spot! so many good things about it! can’t fault it! So now Gail/Madison is finished I think we will see a new challenger!
            Exceeded my expectations!

          • I love Melina

            no worries; brilliant match ayy they really went high risk. Felt innovative, physical and unique in its own way just like both of the taryn/gail matches. I love when the KO’s se the standard like this :D Was thoroughly invested into every moment of the match. That neckbreaker especially .. oh my god!! If so, this was a beautiful end to gail/madison (for now at least). Made up for the somewhat underwhelming build (better than wwe though haha) apart from those moments of brilliance with the brawl/street fight & when gail attacked madison pre genesis.

            Im really excited to see whats next!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Either Tapa or a return/debut. KNOKOUTS ARE BACK IN FORM it seems

          • zinc445 .

            It was certainly a different constructed match lots of top rope action! A pretty good ending too!
            I am really excited for this Thursday! Really want a debut! I wouldn’t mind Tapa getting into the mix either, lol when Madison knocked her off and when Tapa was screaming throughout.
            A nicely paced match and lengthy like they got 8-10 mins?
            Honestly the best match I have seen since Gail/Taryn. Things will only improve from here on I hope.

          • I love Melina

            They were acrobats with the amount of top rope action. when they started walking around the ring on the ropes lmaoooo I LOVE TAPA AS OF LATE. her screaming was soooo funny. and yeees I marked out when madison kicked her :D Would love to see madison vs tapa, but I really think TNA are going to give us Santana. So excited about the division.
            And I think it was a 9minute match, or there about; felt like a long match. I agree that its the best match since gail/taryn . And its hard to judge out of this and gail/taryn matches. Because the stipulations were each so different. All cassic matches tbh very memorable

          • zinc445 .

            Yes! I hope either Tapa turns on gail or they introduce Santana which is much needed in the division!
            9mins is the longest they’ve got since BFG.
            I really hope things change they had such a great match!
            I hope Madison finally cuts a promo this Thursday on her retaining and we get a debut that way.

          • I love Melina

            YEEEEES imagine a madison promo, with either an Angelina love return or Santana debut. It would be PERFECT. I would have Gail and tapa beat down madison, then velvet evens it up, and then Santana comes out as a shock and takes out the champ. THAT WOULD BE A STATEMENT. I hope Dixie was paying attention to how amazing the cage match was and keeps giving KO’s focus

    • BorisG

      Definitely MOTY candidate for now, along with Aksana vs Natalya on Main Event.

  • Juan

    I can’t wait to watch the match! I heard it was a good match

  • Jen7201

    I think Madison proved a lot of people wrong with this match and I love this interview she did recently http://youtu.be/iQqaC2hcQzQ

    • zinc445 .

      awesome interview!
      Taryn’s return should be soon!
      Look’s like new names are coming!

    • I love Melina

      Goodbye madison doubters ahahhahaha SHE WAS PHENOMENAL IN THE CAGE!!!!!! im so impressed. She was Queen before, but now she is elevated to God standard *kicks gail off throne lmaoo I love them both

  • Charlee

    Wow just saw the match really good. How does TNA manage to trust and respect there female competitors enough to let them do steel cage matches etc. but when you look at WWE it’s product is so inferior and for the number 1 company it’s shameful. This match has me invested in the knockouts now, I’ll certainly be watching more.

  • Richard Smith

    I am in to mind about this match.don’t know what to think. some part were good and some were boring

  • charovnica

    To be honest, we’ve seen much better Cage matches between the KOs. This one felt lack luster. I really loved Gail in the match,she proved why she’s the best mainstream female wrestler today.Some of the spots were really nice,but overall I expected more agression and more speed. I’m not really into Madison…I think she’s a little disappointing in the ring ever since she came back.

    • http://wrestling-fanfiction.wikia.com/wiki/Wrestling_Fanfiction_Wiki David

      Is it just me or was Gail’s cage match with Velvet a lot for interesting? I’m not trying to tarnish this match, but wouldn’t it have been better if we saw like, Shanna jumping from the top of the cage?

    • drunkendramaqueen

      The ending would have been better executed if Madison hit the spear immediately after Gail hit her throat on the ropes. Other than that it was a fine, if not an outstanding bout.

      • charovnica

        Yep!

    • Kaledrina

      it’s crazy that a top rope spear felt a bit flat to us huh? haha. still, was a way good match. to me, it flowed really well. usually matches like these feel a bit, iunno.. spotfest-y? and although we had our spots, they didn’t feel too contrived like they usually do. the thing that’s missing with madison for me right now is her personality. i dont know if it’s just because she’s a face or because she hasn’t really had any mic time as a face but hopefully tna rectify that asap!

      • charovnica

        I think you’re absolutely right about Madison. This is exactly what she misses right now and I feel like the crowd senses it too.
