2009 is nearly at an end! As with our Christmas Classics last week, over the next few days, we’ll be turning back the clock and picking out most memorable moments from the year gone by. Each day, a different team member will be sharing their most memorable moment for all of you guys to enjoy. Add your thoughts in the comments and be sure to tell us what your most memorable moments were.
Today’s pick is from Steven: My pick is the debuts of Sarita and Alissa Flash on the July 16th episode of Impact. For several weeks leading to this match, TNA hyped Sarita’s debut, marking the first time a Knockout received the coveted ‘Coming Soon’ vignettes. By the time the match aired, Knockouts fans were anxious to see what the Canadian luchadora brought to the table. Sarita had an impressive showing against the equally talented Alissa Flash, leaving both fans and critics begging for more. Although it was short match, Sarita vs. Alissa is many fans pick for Match of the Year. These two debuting Knockouts singlehandedly revived a division that was seriously lacking the quality it once had. Personally, this match had special meaning for me. About a year prior, I had seen these two face off in the first round of the SHIMMER title tournament in one of my favorite matches of all time. In fact, both matches had the exact same finish. Even though both women took very different paths in TNA after this match, two stars were born that Thursday and what could be more memorable than that?
