Someone out there is listening to us. WWE hasn’t quite gotten the picture, but it seems TNA is ready to be on the ball. Tonight at 9pm EST TNA will be broadcasting “A Night of Knockouts” featuring different members from their women’s division.
Normally, I don’t tune in to TNA but I will be tonight. You know everyone is going to be checking their ratings and their social media, so speak up. They are, in their eyes, taking a gamble and doing something that no other major promotions are currently tackling: featuring women front and centre. Now, this has been done before on a PPV, but not as part of their regular broadcast. Tonight, the men are getting the treatment that the women normally do and are subject to one match somewhere in the middle of the card.
We’re going to be seeing a great mix tonight and I have faith that the storylines will be interesting and the fighting will be top notch. The match ups are not your typical fare, and I don’t think we could ask for anything more to start off:
- Main event between Knockouts Champ Tayrn Terrell against my personal favourite Awesome Kong
- A fatal fourway between Gail Kim, Madison Rayne, Brooke Adams and Angelina Love! The winner of this match will take on the champ from the main event going forward. Let’s see how this stacks up to the NXT Rival Fatal Four Way from a few months back
- They are debuting a new faction called the Dollhouse
- Cherry Bomb and Mickie James will each be making an appearance as well
That sounds pretty great to me. Now, if only the men’s match would be just as much focused on eye candy as the women’s matches usually are, then they would have a recipe for success. That’s how this works, right? The oppression has to be shifted someplace!
Jokes aside, let’s hope that this leads to a huge step forward for women’s wrestling across the board and a larger representation of our talents and for female fans who tune in and want to see themselves on screen.
