JB is backstage with Madison Rayne, Karen Jarrett, and Gail Kim. Jarrett says tonight Kim will bring the belt home. Karen says Kim is a role model, and represent the company correctly. She says she looks like what a Knockout should. Gail says she's never been more ready for a match in her life. Karen says she doesn't need any help so she'll be on her own, and she wants all the other girls in the back to see how it's done. This leads us right into a video package showing recent events between Velvet Sky and Gail Kim leading into this match.
TNA Knockout Championship Match
- Velvet Sky (c) vs. Gail Kim
The bell rings and Sky is already on top of Kim raining down with punches. The fight spills to the outside and Sky slams Gail's face into the apron. Back in the ring Sky is unstoppable, tearing into Kim and hitting a big cross body before sending her into the corner and mounting her with a series of punches. Kim picks her up and puts her down on the top rope though. Kim takes Sky to the corner and hits her with kicks to the stomach before hitting a weird spear like move where Kim ended up on the apron. Kim hits a snap mare and kicks Sky in the chest. Karen Jarrett is shown walking down the ramp, applauding Kim.
Kim continues to assault Sky with a backbreaker, then an abdominal stretch. Sky breaks the hold and covers Kim for two, then another cover for another two. Kim sends Sky into the corner, misses a splash, and goes for a springboard cross body, but is caught with a kick to the stomach instead. Sky hits a couple of clotheslines, smashes Kim's face into her knee, the face plants Kim into the canvas. Kim backs Sky into the corner and goes for eat defeat, but Sky blocks it and hits a facebuster. Karen interferes and Madison Rayne comes in and puts Velvet down with a knee to the back and neck. Kim goes for the cover but Sky kicks out at two. Kim goes to the top and tries for a senton but misses.
Both women go for covers but neither gets three. Madison interferes again and the distraction allows Kim to hit eat defeat. Kim pins Sky and gets the three count.
