We go backstage with Christy Hemme, talking to Eric Bischoff and Miss Tessmacher. Bischoff says he thinks Sting has his own agenda and doesn't have the best interests of TNA on his mind. Bischoff puts over Rob Van Dam and says he's excited about the main event tonight.
TNA Knockouts Championship
Madison Rayne (c) vs. Roxxi
Rayne came out alone, without the rest of the Beautiful People. Madison Rayne got on the mic before the bell, and said she wanted Roxxi to explain how she could "pop in and out of the company whenever she felt like it" while the Beautiful People were dominating. Rayne said this time she "popped in and was handed a title shot". Rayne said she is putting everything on the line tonight, while Roxxi is putting up nothing. Rayne said Roxxi should put up the same thing that Tara did, her career. Rayne badgered her into agreeing, and just as she did, Rayne hit her in the head with the microphone.
Rayne called for the bell and covered Roxxi, but she kicked out at two. Roxxi was busted open from the microphone shot. Roxxi hit some shots, but was knocked to the floor by Rayne. Roxxi was quickly becoming a bloody mess. Roxxi got on the apron and shoulderblocked Rayne, then rammed her into the turnbuckles. Roxxi went to climb the ropes, but Rayne yanked her into the ring and got a near fall. Rayne put Roxxi in an armbar, but Roxxi fought out of it. Roxxi hit an enzugiri, then a series of forearms. Roxxi hit a running elbow and a kick to the chest, then a fallaway slam. Roxxi hit a spinebuster for a two count. Rayne reversed an armbar and went for her finisher, but Roxxi blocked it and hit the hammerlock spinebuster. Rayne rolled to the floor. Roxxi went outside, tossed Rayne back in. As Roxxi was getting back in, Rayne kicked her and hit her neckbreaker on the knee for the win at the five minute mark.
Winner: Madison Rayne
Madison waved goodbye to Roxxi, and yelled for her to get out of here. Roxxi, a bloody mess, looked despondent, then waved to the crowd and left.
