Gail Kim retains TNA Knockouts Championship with another lame finish

Here's the match video from last night's TNA PPV of Gail Kim defending her TNA Knockouts Championship against Velvet Sky. The match begins about seven minutes into the video clip. The story given is Velvet Sky never got a rematch when Gail won the title from her. Velvet won the title shot on a recent episode of Impact. Of course the problem with Velvet is she is a ten year veteran of pro wrestling who still wrestles like an untrained model. She shouldn't be on a PPV and TNA is aware of this. But she's been loyal to the company so they want to reward her with a PPV payoff. Typical of Knockout matches on TNA PPVs, the match is OK but nothing special. And then the ending is a lame pull the tights rollup finish that cheats paying customers. Remember the excitement when Mickie James faced Tara in a cage on a 2010 episode of Impact? you don't get any of that in this match. If you saw the results of last night's PPV, lame finishes dominated the show including the main event. And this is why TNA has PPV buyrate problems. They need to stop cheating fans with bad finishes on PPVs and then do the blowoff on the next episode of Impact. Fans who feel cheated won't buy PPVs again. But TNA has been doing this kind of crap for years. So obviously they don't get why they shouldn't do that. It would not surprise me if there were title changes on this week's Impact. You should also take note of Velvet's behaviour after the match. First she sits in the middle of the ring with a "Wha' happened" look on her face. Then she leaves the ring with an "Oh well" shrug of her shoulders and a goofy grin on her face. I don't know why they would have her do that.
