On the October 18, 2012 episode of Impact Wrestling, Knockouts Champion Tara was defeated by ODB…
Backstage, Mr. Pec-Tacular Jessie Godderz military-pressed newly crowned Knockouts Champion Tara (Tara becomes a 5-Time Knockouts Champ), for a photo-shoot with Lee South. It was not long before Tara and Jessie directed some insults Lee South’s way—of course with a Big Brother and TMZ reference. The two then made-out, followed by Tenay announcing ODB versus Tara coming up next…
Knockouts – October 18, 2012 Impact Wrestling Match: Tara vs. ODB
—Knockouts Champion Tara made her way to the ring, accompanied by Jessie Godderz. ODB‘s music then hit, and she was seen backstage—on the phone with Eric Young. ODB finally came out to the arena, announced as one-half of the Knockouts Tag-Team Champions—a belt she referred to as her wedding ring. ODB left EY on the phone–leaving the phone on the ring apron, and proceeded to hit Tara with stikes—who was preoccupied with Jessie. After some offense, ODB was back on the line with EY. Jessie then got on the apron, and received a face-full of ODB’s fun-bags. The distraction gave Tara an opportunity to finally get offense in the match. After moments of dominating ODB, Jessie got on the apron once again, where he and Tara proceeded to make-out. The distracted Tara was hit from behind with a running avalanche. This time, ODB spit in the face of Jessie, as she put Tara on her shoulders. ODB then hit The Bam for the win…
Winner:ODB at 3:11
After the match, Brooke Tessmacher was seen on the ramp applauding, as Jessie consoled Tara after her loss. It was announced that on the October 25, 2012 edition of Impact Wrestling, Miss Tessmacher will get her rematch for the TNA Women’s Knockout Championship.
Thoughts: Tara has seemingly taken the role that we have seen Madison Rayne excel at in the past few year… comedy heel. And of course with ODB’s gimmick, this was not a wrestling match for wrestling purists. Tara taking a loss four days after her title win, was certainly not expected. Of course, the loss was booked as Tara being distracted by her affections for Jessie Godderz.
Alot of doors were open here. For instance, will Tara be able to focus on her match next week with Miss Tessmacher? Could Brooke become a 3-Time Knockouts Champion? After the match, Brooke seemed pretty confident that she could get the job done.
With ODB’s win, it also leaves her in line for a Knockouts Title shot. And as mentioned in the Bound for Glory 2012 Write-up, Tara and Jessie Godderz versus ODB and Eric Young seems inevitable.
