Gail and Taryn fight around the ring until Taryn gets Gail into position for a superplex. Before Taryn can execute, Havok is back – to powerbomb Taryn (who in turn suplexes Gail). Havok drapes the women on top of one another – and again she climbs the ropes. This time, she misses the splash.
Gail and Taryn fire back! Gail catches Havok with a DDT, and then a moonsault. Taryn connects with a flying cross body to Havok. Gail connects with Eat Defeat and Taryn hits the cutter. Havok is down; Taryn goes for the pin. Gail pulls Taryn out of the pin and attempts one of her own. Taryn counters and gets Gail for three to become the new Knockout’s Champion!
