Knockouts – TNA Hardcore Justice 2012 Match:
TNA Women’s Knockout Championship
Madison Rayne vs. Brooke Tessmacher(c)
A video package of the events leading up to the match was played, followed by a tale of the tape. Madison Rayne made her way to the ring first, followed by Knockouts Champion Brooke Tessmacher.
The ladies began with a series of tie-ups, which led to Miss Tessmacher getting the better of Madison, who retreated to the outside of the ring. Madison was able to shoulder block Tessmacher on her way back into the ring, and proceeded to dominate the match in the minutes that followed. Tessmacher was able to make a comeback towards the end of the match. The finish saw Brooke Tessmacher hit a top rope elbow to Madison Rayne, in which she seemed to have had the win; however, Madison Rayne got her foot on the ropes. As Tessmacher complained to Hebner, Madison rolled up Tessmacher for the 1-2-3. Madison Rayne used to ropes for leverage to pick up the win…
Winner(s): Madison Rayne at 5:30
Thoughts: Congratulations to Madison Rayne on becoming a 4-Time TNA Women’s Knockout Champions. As most writers noted in the Roundtable (TNA Hardcore Justice 2012 Predictions), this match could have gone either way. Brooke Tessmacher’s reign lasted 63 days. Good match, but nothing spectacular. It should be interesting to see if there is any ramifications to Earl and Madison’s actions on Thursday’s episode of Impact Wrestling.
