New Knockouts Tag Team Champions

TNA crowned new Knockouts Tag Team Champions on tonight’s episode of Impact Wrestling when the returning Gail Kim and Madison Rayne picked up the belts.

The win marks a fast turnaround from return to title win for Gail, who made her comeback on Impact just three weeks ago.

The new champions defeated previous champions Tara and Brooke Tessmacher thanks to a little help from their benefactor and Knockouts VP, Karen Jarrett. As Tara had the match won with a Widow’s Peak on Madison, Karen distracted the referee, allowing Gail to hit the Eat Defeat and place Madison on top of the veteran Knockout to steal the win.

Fresh from winning the Knockouts Tag Titles, Gail could become a double champion before the month is out as she faces Velvet Sky for the Knockouts Championship at Turning Point on November 13th.

Thoughts: I was a little disappointed by the length of this match. I thought it was just hitting its stride momentum-wise and then came to an end. I’d like to see a longer bout between these four because there was some good chemistry.

I suspect that Gail’s hot return to TNA over the past few weeks could be leading to her eventually losing to Velvet Sky at Turning Point in a couple of weeks. Gail certainly has a ton of buzz behind her at the moment and has been strongly booked since coming back to the company. It seems like it’s all building up to that match where she’d suffer her first loss against Velvet, which would be a big rub for the new champion & solidify her title reign.

What do you think of the title change? Can Gail become a double champion? Tell us in the comments…
