TNA Title Belts - Knockouts Title Belt

The Knockouts Title Belt was brought in 2007 and the first winner being Gail Kim, winning it in a gauntlet match. She currently works in WWE, She left TNA due to problems with her pay. The Devision has been praised as the greatest womens wrestling on TV and was extremely popular but as of late the devision has become stale with terrible booking and the ideals that Women should only be eye & arm candy and have filler matches. The opinion of some is that the Knockouts Title Belt has become less prestigious since the new booking style Vince Russo and Eric Bischoff having the title being lost almost every PVP and the lock box challenge hurt the credebility of the title. I personally hope that they fix the situation with them, pay a correct wage and get the fans back. As it seems strange not only to tank them as they brought in the highest rated segments and were extremely popular. Being a new niche and an exciting one at that to push TNA further in my own opinion they need to fix the situation and bring the devision back to its former glory.

I have included the list of the knockout champions since the title was introduce in 2007. Notice the change since Jan 4th. I hope that we do see Awsome Kong Gail Kim back home in the future.
