With the Knockouts Championship on the line and her “boyfriend” Earl Hebner as the officiating referee, Madison Rayne had nothing to lose and everything to gain at Hardcore Justice — and that she did, winning her fourth Knockouts Championship.
Madison defeated current champion, Brooke Tessmacher, for the title after Brooke was distracted arguing with Hebner over his decision to break her pin attempt. After Tessmacher hit the elbow drop from the top turnbuckle, Madison put her foot on the bottom rope when Brooke went for the pin, thus leading to Hebner breaking the count. With Brooke distracted, Madison rolled her up — and using the ropes for assistance — pinned the rookie champion.
The title win marks Madison Rayne’s fourth Knockouts Title victory. Her last reign ended in April 2011.
Madison is also a two-time Knockouts Tag Team Champion.
