As the title of this column suggests, my focus is on the Knockouts Division. With the division under the oppression/ leadership of a manager of sorts, it is possible that the storylines for the Knockouts Title will improve. That being said, competition for the Knockouts Tag Titles will suffer under the constraints of time unless one of two things happens....
1. Impact cuts down on the amount of time devoted to promos and development of main event and other storylines elsewhere.
2. Another show is premiered that will allow those belts to be defended under conditions that will allow the division to flourish.
As I have written before, I have NEVER been a fan of the Knockouts Tag Titles, HOWEVER, if they are intended to be used strongly, they NEED to be showcased, much in the way the X Division Title and Television Title also need to be defended regularly. The assembling of tag teams also needs to be done as there are 9 Knockouts with three on reserve, putting the total to 12. At least 4 teams can be put together with 4 Knockouts chasing the big belt at any given time.
Rosita and Sarita are doing fine as a team; Tara and Tessmacher are as well. If ODB and Jackie can be utilized consistently, they could join the ranks as could Angelina Love and Winter. That leaves Velvet Sky, Gail Kim, Mickie James, and Madison Rayne to compete for the Knockouts belt. In my humble opinion, this is the perfect blend of green to veteran.
The Knockouts Divisions separate TNA from EVERY other organization save for the all women's feds as they are showcasing their young talents as both beautiful and lethal. The fact that they give these performers time to develop and change proves TNA as a place where women can ply their trade in the ring with every bit the talent and precision as their male counterparts.
