TNA KNOCKOUT TITLE MATCH
Angelina Love (w/Velvet Sky & Madison Rayne) defeated Tara to win the TNA Knockout title: Velvet Sky & Madison Rayne were ejected from ringside by the referee for interfering for Love. Angelina scored the pin after Tara missed a moonsault, but Tara’s foot was on the bottom rope so the finish will be disputed. After the match, Tara protested and then kicked the referee and gave Angelina the Widow’s Peak.. Tara then threatened to put Poison (her tarantula) on Angelina’s body but Velvet & Madison returned and pulled Angelina out of the ring.. Tara put the tarantula on top of the referee instead..

Abyss caught a stunned Dr. Stevie in a Black Hole Slam and then tasered him for the win!

Booker T gave Roode the Axe-kick and Steiner pinned him to win the match!
