Gail Kim cheats to retain TNA Knockouts Championship
Here's the match video of Gail Kim defending her TNA Knockouts Championship against Brooke Tessmacher from last night's TNA PPV. This match is TNA lunkheaded booking at its worst. The whole gimmick is trying to sell Brooke as an athlete when we all know she isn't. There are some fans who have a double standard when it comes to women in pro wrestling. So it's OK for a model like Brooke to show some improvement even if she's still really green and looks shaky most of the time. So you've got the champ Gail Kim who has been a wrestler for ten years and for most of her career she has been booked as a second banana to models except when she worked with Awesome Kong in TNA a few years ago. It's very weak booking. And of course the silliest thing is they want Brooke to use Gail's finisher. A champion should never be booked like this especially against a greenhorn. And the ending of this match was ludicrous. They had Gail fall out of the ring after Brooke gave her the Eat Defeat. And then Gail won with her feet on the ropes. Ugh! Look, I know what TNA is trying to do with Brooke. It will fail because she still needs to be carried by a veteran. She has already been exposed but she will be exposed further. Enjoy the video!
