Call it home state advantage, or just plain luck, but Brooke Tessmacher ended Gail Kim‘s historic title reign tonight at Slammiversary.
Brooke, a Texas native, defeated the champion in Arlington, Texas, at the pay per view which marks TNA’s 10 year anniversary.
After being dominated by the veteran champion for much of the match, Brooke scored the victory after countering a Tess Shocker (Gail tried to school Brooke by using her own finisher, just as Brooke did to her) into a victory roll for the three-count.
Last month Brooke told us exclusively that winning the Knockouts Title would mean she’s “proven to the people that doubted me, or people that go, ‘Oh she’s just a model’ or ‘Oh she’s just gonna come and go’ – it’s gonna prove that I’m here to stay.”
She continued: “It’s going to prove that I am a real threat. It’s going to prove that I am a threat in the Knockouts division and all of those girls should worry every time they step in the ring with me. And it’s going to prove that I’m finally a real professional wrestler. That I’m not just a model.”
