Following a promo by Ric Flair, who showed up in a wheelchair, and Hulk Hogan making fun of Eric Bischoff for having “a Hulk Hogan” haircut, TNA was ready to deliver the first of five TNA Championship matches.
Tara hit the ring and attacked Daffney before the bell rang, quickly putting her challenger down and delivering a standing moonsault. Daffney would get a little offfense in however, choking Tara in the corner and getting a quick two-count. Daffney kept control of the match for several minutes and got a few quick two-counts, wearing out the TNA Knockouts Champion.
The two would then spend the next several minutes reversing move after move, but neither was able to get a pinfall. Tara would hit a tit-a-whirl side slam, but it wasn’t enough to put Daffney down. Daffney grabbed the title belt and tried to hit Tara with it, but the champion ducked and hit the Widow’s Peak, allowing her to make the cover and successfully retain the TNA Knockouts Championship.
