This week on Impact, it was Velvet Sky going against Gail Kim as this was a non title match this week on Impact. Would Velvet get another win on her long time rival or will Gail Kim get a win over the champion and secure a victory with this mean streak to get a title shot? Let’s watch below.
Before I go on, did anyone notice that Velvet was wearing blue and then in the match, in pink? Looks like their was an error right there, but regardless, the both of them were in pink. The match was pretty decent this week with Gail proving that she is the dominant one in the match while Velvet proved that she was not going to go down with out a fight despite this knee injury. I liked the match despite the roll up at the end which seems to be the common case here now in TNA. I know Velvet hit In Yo Face Last week on Tara, but I was expecting this to be honest with Gail dominating over the knee. However after the match and surprisingly Taz did say it, Gail Kim might have went a little bit too fair in her actions with Velvet’s knee injury, but then again, she’s proving a point and going to injury someone in her way. Match was decent, but I still like their Knockouts title match at Lockdown.
It should be also said that once again, Mickie James is getting another championship shot against Velvet Sky. IF Mickie was not to win this match, should end up heel? I have a feeling she will, but don’t get me wrong, I feel like Mickie really does not need title shots after title shots when she loses. Sure you may not agree with me, but I feel like she doesn’t need it all the time. I could say the same thing about my favorites as well.
This week on Impact, TNA Knockouts Champion, Velvet Sky teamed up with Mickie James to take on the team of Gail Kim and Tara this week on the show. Let’s watch to see what happened this week as well as a thought right at the end on the match.
With the exception of Tara giving Jesse her lollipop that was right in her mouth (GROSS), I felt like this match was decent this week with the four of them. Velvet didn’t seem to have a problem with the knee this week at all (Maybe its because she didn’t work most of the match), but she was able to hit the In Yo Face finisher on Tara this week. The big story here after this match is Gail Kim attacking Tara right after and again, doing that Figure Four Leg lock right on the pole on the outside to make ODB break up the pin. Gail has been full with rage as of late and seems to be making a statement here that she doesn’t want to be mess around here. I don’t want to be the one to fall victim to this yet.

: Hot Mess Teams with Hardcore Country, but pays a price at the end!
A little late with this which I apologize for, but this week on Impact, we focus on a knockouts tag team match with Taryn Terrell teaming up with Mickie James to take on the team of Gail Kim and Tara this week. Let’s looked what happened this week on Impact and I will leave thoughts on the bottom.
I couldn’t find the backstage segment with Gail Kim talking with Tara, but from what I remember, you could tell the anger in her voice about Taryn Terrell with her being all over the Knockouts Website page and how she was Knockout of the month. Kind of puts more jealously of Gail Kim into her character which I like. The match itself was pretty decent as well and I liked it to be honest, but going to be real for a minute. While I did like Mickie and Taryn teaming up with one another and Taryn has been improving, why is Taryn always using the roll up? I know Velvet Sky did it, but this is getting to be a little too much with the roll ups and I feel like Taryn should have a finisher or something. WWE did it too much with the Divas back in 2011 and now TNA is doing it.
I did like the post match attack with Gail Kim and it makes this feud interesting with the both of them even more and I thought the figure four leg lock around the poll was sick as well. Shows Gail got more of a meaner side to her and can get violent as well.
So what do I want to see next week? Another singles match with Taryn Terrell and Gail Kim or maybe a knockouts tag team match with Velvet Sky and Taryn Terrell against Tara and Gail Kim. Who knows.
Mickie James recently did an interview with Headlocks2Headlines, where she expressed her frustration at being underused in TNA.
She mentioned how she doesn’t enjoy sitting at home, watching everyone else doing what she enjoys most – to be fair, who would? – and answers fans who have asked her if she is turning heel. Turns out that she isn’t, she’s just frustrated:
“I know I’ve seemed a little bit frustrated as of late in some of my promos and stuff, but I honestly feel that for the past year I’ve probably been on less than 10 shows. I’ve barely done anything. It’s awesome to be able to come back and win the number one contendership and go for the title, but I’m sick and tired of feeling like I’m sitting at home and watching all these other people. I did get injured and I was sick, but I was already off TV when I got hurt.
“It’s so frustrating when you know that you’re one of the best in the world, and you’re sitting at home. I love going out there and making magic and telling a story, but I don’t love pretending that I’m okay sitting at home when I’m not. I’m just being real and being honest about it. It’s not me trying to be this awful person. I’m the one who has to look at myself in the mirror and if I’m not happy with what I’m doing or not doing, then I’m the one who has to face that. So that’s kind of where I’m at. I know people question that like ‘Oh are you turning heel?’ And I’m like ‘No, not really. I’m just being honest.”
She also mentioned fellow Knockout Velvet Sky and compared their popularity in the interview.
“I was glad that Velvet was back; I thought it was awesome. But what was the point in bringing me back [in December] if you were just going to bring her back a week later and then I was going to sit at home? It didn’t make any sense to me unless it would have worked into some kind of storyline or something like that. It still could, you never know.
“Velvet started in TNA and that’s where she built her fan base. She’s got hardcore TNA fans, whereas I have hardcore Mickie James fans. I don’t mean to take anything away from her because she does have hardcore Velvet Sky fans, but I brought 80-90 percent of my fan base with me. I do have a larger audience, but she has a larger TNA loyal fan base.”
… MEOW! Is it just me, or is there a slightly catty tone to that last comment?
Flavor Of the Week is back….. with a twist! Since WWE.com has all but abandoned the Saturday Triple Threat (replacing it with ONE featued Diva or “special” Diva Focuses such as ‘never-before-seen’ photos and ‘best of’ galleries), and Knockout photoshoots have been slagging drastically, Flavor Of the Week is now known as ‘Flavor Of the Month‘! The same rules apply. You vote for the shoot you liked the best this month. The shoot with the most votes will be crowned as ‘Flavor Of the Month‘. Easy peasy, am I right? ;)
BUT! The fun doesn’t stop there! At the end of the year we will combine all Flavors Of the Month into one giant poll to determine who will be ‘Flavor Of the Year‘!
This month we were treated to shoots from Aksana, Brie Bella, Kaitlyn, Rosa Mendes, Tamina Snuka, Angelina Love, Trish Stratus, Audrey Marie, Charlotte, Emma, Paige, Sasha Banks, Summer Rae, Miss Tessmacher, A.J. Lee, Gail Kim, Mickie James, ODB, So Cal Val, Tara, Taryn Terrell and Velvet Sky. Be sure to click on the thumbnails to view the full shoot!
Poll and thumbnails are behind the cut!
Here is video of Mickie James talking about her recently championship loss to Velvet Sky this past week on Impact. Here is what she had to say about the loss.
The wait is finally over! The launch of the brand new TNA Knockouts website has finally arrived. Ring announcer Christy Hemme has worked hard to bring us this new site, with tons of new photos of our favorite knockouts – and more to come soon! You won’t want to miss these photos, so be sure to check them out!
In addition to brand new photos, there is also a new ‘Knockout Of the Month‘ feature, with former KO referee Taryn Terrell crowned as the first Knockout Of the Month, as well as a weekly blog from the Killer Queen and Mamma-To-Be Madison Rayne!
Former WWE Diva and current TNA Knockout Mickie James has been added to the WWE alumni website. Her profile can be found at this link.

: Mickie and Tess Rumble in Texas for a shot at Velvet’s title.
Taking a break this week from the Taryn and and Gail saga that has been going on, this week, the attention focuses on Velvet Sky’s championship where this week, Mickie James and Miss Tessmacher faced off against one another in a match to determine the number one contender to Velvet Sky’s Championship. Watch the videos and I will leave my thoughts at the bottom.
If my math is correct, this is the fifth time that these two faced off together (2 Title matches, one back in 2011 where Mickie was the champion, Tessmacher was the challenger, The Queen’s Challenge Qualifier for Bound for Glory 2011, one in 2012 where it was Vice Versa where Tessmacher was the champion, Mickie was the challenger and on an episode of Xplosion). Out of those five, I wasn’t too keen on this one. Maybe because of ODB being the referee in this match and her constant yelling or maybe something didn’t click here for me in the match. That’s just an opinion I have on that.
But right after the match, Mickie James would cut a promo and then challenge Velvet Sky for the Knockouts Championship next week on Impact. My thoughts on that is, if they want to have a rivalry for the title with Mickie and Velvet, have Velvet retain in this match and for a bit, have Mickie and Velvet team until Mickie can turn heel as the both of them can possibly feud at the next pay per view. There are so many possibilities for this to happen.
