Today in History: Gail Kim vs. Maria Kanellis in a No DQ match

On this day in history:

October 13th, 2016 | After winning the Knockouts Championship at Bound for Glory from Maria Kanellis, Gail Kim’s first title defense was against Maria just a few days later. This time, however, there was more than just a title at stake as Maria’s role as Leader of the Knockouts division was also on the line. Despite a No DQ stipulation added to the match, Maria’s assistant Allie had informed her that an email from an unnamed sender banned Maria’s entire Lady Squad and husband Mike Bennett from ringside. With the odds against her, Maria made the most of attacking Gail with any weapon she get her hands but ultimately was defeated and removed from power.
