Winner and STILL TNA Knockouts Champion: Gail Kim
JB is standing backstage alongside James Storm. James says he's a beer drinking, a** kicking machine. He says he learned a long time ago that whoever you are in life, there's always someone out there bigger and badder that can knock you down, and tonight he's that guy. He tries to get the crowd behind him, telling them to get pumped up. He says tonight, he beats Angle for the second time in a row, before telling Angle that he's sorry about his damn luck. This leads us right into a video package that details the events leading up to this match.
