When they won the belts, it baffled me and the whole wrestling world, and with news that Eric Young will be returning full time to Impact Wrestling, it’s about time to give this team a quick defeat and brush their reign under the rug as if it never happened. Live Impact airs tonight so what better way to kick it off than to have brand new tag champs. We take a quick look at four teams, eligible for the tag team gold.
TARA & TESSMACHERTNA Knockouts champion Brooke Tessmacher has teamed with Tara once before to capture the TNA Knockouts Tag titles, so what’s stopping them from doing so again? Brooke is the current (two time) singles champion while partner and trainer Tara is a four time singles champ. The pair first captured the tag belts when they defeated Rosita and Sarita last year in July. Lately, both Tara and Tessmacher have continued to dominate in the Knockouts division so it’d make sense to put the belt on this pair.
RAYNE & KIMGail Kim and Madison Rayne once won the tag titles and they proved to be a dominant team, holding both the tag titles and the singles championship at the same time. Recently, the pair have been on a losing streak but surely even they can exact their revenge on the couple that beat them for the tag belts and recapture what’s theirs?!
MICKIE & TAELERA random pairing – the ‘wild card’ – as they say. Weeks back, Taeler Hendrix earned herself a contract and has yet to be seen on Impact television and the last time we saw Mickie James, she was screwed out of two victories by love blinded referee Earl Hebner. In a way to get Taeler involved in the Knockouts division, TNA could have Mickie take her under her wing (as let’s face it, they have their similarities!) and the pair could take the Knockouts division by storm – starting with the TNA Knockouts Tag titles!
