WWE isn’t the only company with huge news this week, TNA also has some huge, huge news! For the non-spoiler crowd, you can find out on the July 3rd edition of Impact but for those interested please follow the cut:
TNA crowned a new Knockout Champion last night when Shantelle Taylor defeated Awesome Kong in the $25,000 challenge to win the money and the title. Taylor only made her debut last week on Impact in Kong’s challenge but has signed a contract with TNA and will be appearing in the next two weeks worth of the show.
This week, fans will see her attack Kong during her $25,000 challenge and then later see her defeat Raisha Saeed for an opportunity to face Kong again. These scenes will air tomorrow (Thursday, June 26th). Meanwhile, Shantelle’s title win can be seen next week on Impact.
Let’s just say, I’m not impressed. ODB and Gail Kim can barely defeat her, after they’re built up so much and this random girl comes in and wins the title? This will work as well as Gail winning the Women’s Championship in her WWE debut… it won’t. I think this is why I don’t watch TNA more.
