On October 14, 2012, from the Grand Canyon University Arena in Phoenix, Arizona, was TNA Wrestling Bound for Glory 2012 Live on Pay-Per-View. In TNA Knockouts action, was Tara once again challenging her former Tag-Team partner Brooke Tessmacher (PICTURES & PROFILE), for the TNA Women’s Knockout Championship.
A promo video was played, of the weeks leading up to this match…
Knockouts – TNA Bound for Glory 2012 Match:
TNA Women’s Knockout Championship
Tara vs. Brooke Tessmacher(c)
—The challenger Tara made her way first to the ring. Knockouts referee Taryn Terrell was in the ring for the match, followed by the Knockouts Champion Brooke Tessmacher making her way to the ring. As the bell ring, Tara and Brooke were face–to–face, Brooke shoved Tara, who responded with a strike to the face. After some exchanges, Tara was sent to ringside with a headscissors. Tara suckered Brooke outside the ring, and took advantage on her way back in. Tara then controlled the rest of the match, with Brooke being on defense for the majority of what followed. Brooke made a comeback towards the end of the match, which saw one of the highlights; a hurricanrana on Tara—jumping off the top ropes (i.e Lita). Unfortunately for Brooke, she missed a top-rope elbow drop, and was the recipient of the Window’s peak…
Winner: Tara at 6:21
After the match, Tara got on the microphone, and said that her inspiration was her hollywood boyfriend, who she revealed as Mr. Pec-Tacular Jessie Godderz. Jessie Godderz and Tara then made out in the middle of the ring, to a “Who are you chant.” I shared that sentiment, due to never watching “Big Brother” a day in my life. A feud against ODB and Eric Young maybee? That would prove to be entertaining.
Those of you that follow Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), would have been familiar with Jessie as a Wrestler, as he signed a TNA contact in 2011, and has been wrestling there since.
Still, a decent match.
Thoughts: Congratulations to Tara, who is now a 5-Time Knockouts Champion. A win I called in the Roundtable ( TNA Bound for Glory 2012 Predictions). This ends Brooke Tessmacher’s reign, which lasted 59 days. Bringing her grand total days as Knockouts champ to 122 days. Congrats to Brooke on her push to the Championship belt.
Personally, after seeing Brooke and Gail Kim go at it on last week’s edition of Impact Wrestling, this match did not impress me as much. Not to mention, Brooke did not have nearly as much support as she does in the Impact Zone. A reason someone like say Mickie James should be representing the Knockouts.
