TNA Impact Wrestling
Brooke Adams vs Madison Rayne (World Title Series)
We opened with a clip of Madison says she knows she has to win and get points in this match or she can't advance. Lock up to start and Madison drags Brooke into the corner. Madison with a headlock. Brooke fights back and hits a dropkick for the two count. Madison goes after Brooke's broken finger. Brooke fights back with some kicks. Brooke hits a shoulder block and then goes for a pin attempt but gets a two-count. Elbow by Brooke gets another two. Brooke goes for the clothesline. She misses. Madison hits the Rayne check for the three. Madison now has three points. The commentators remind us that the whole Knockout world title series group is now tied in points. I'm bit surprised that it comes down to the final week not just for Gail Kim and Awesome Kong but for all members. I know these matches were recorded back in the summer, but I'm curious to see how it goes.
Eva Marie vs Local Competitor
Asuka vs Cameron
Awesome! Cameron's back, said no one ever. It's time to see if she has improved in the past few months in the Performance Center. Cameron drives Asuka into the corner. Cameron tries to kick Asuka in the gut, but Asuka grabs Cameron's foot. Asuka walks Cameron by the foot back to the center of the ring. Asuka slowly puts Cameron’s foot back to the mat as a sign of sportsmanship. Without hesitation Cameron swings at Asuka, but Asuka seamlessly turns Cameron’s slap into a flying cross armbreaker. Cameron immediately gets to the ropes. Cameron looks stunned. Asuka walks over to Cameron, but Cameron pulls her into the turnbuckle.
Cameron’s advantage is short lived, as Asuka hits three consecutive running hip attacks. Asuka goes on a strike barrage before locking in an armbar. Cameron fights out, but ends up getting put right into the Asuka lock. Cameron has no choice but to tap out.
Eva loose armdrags her opponent, whom I can't find the identity of (Thanks WWE!), which sends her flying across the ring. Eva heels off to the crowd and taunting her opponent. Eva throws a clothesline, but her opponent dodges pretty nicely and hits Eva with an arm drag and begins unloading on a few dropkicks before taking Eva over in a DDT take over. She charges Eva in the corner, but Eva gets her boot up enough to kick her opponent in the chest. Eva lands a DDT for the win. Eva is still pretty mediocre in the ring and that DDT looked bad. I'm not sure why she didn't use her finisher in this match, at least she does that well.
Natalya vs Tamina Snuka
Natalya gets the early going on Tamina, but she is overpowered by the strong woman from the Pacific Islands. Tamina goes to work on Natalya, hitting a slam and a knee on the head. The crowd chants "WE WANT SASHA," to which Tamina responds "YOU CAN'T HAVE HER" before going for a leg drop, but Natalya gets out of the way. Natalya lands a dropkick for the cover and a nearfall, but is distracted by Naomi before being dropped down by Tamina. Tamina back in control, distracting the ref as Naomi slaps Natalya right in the face. Tamina right back in it with a chinlock, but Natalya powers out but Tamina hits her with a big clothesline. Tamina whips her into the corner, and she falls down hard. Tamina charges at her, but Natalya hits a clothesline and goes for the Sharpshooter before being distracted again. She walks right into a Samoan Drop by Tamina, who gets to the top for a splash but is rolled up by Natalya for the win. I'm glad that Natalya gets some love and hopefully after Paige, the next storyline is Charlotte vs Natalya for the title. Build the story around their last encounter in NXT which had an amazing match back in December of 2014.
