New Knockout Tag Champions, Storyline Explanation For Sarita
Miss Tessmacher and Tara are the new TNA Knockout Tag Team Champions as they defeated Rosita and a masked Sarita for the straps on tonight’s episode of Impact Wrestling.
Tara secured victory when she powerbombed Sarita and pinned her for the three-count.
A storyline explanation was given for Sarita suddenly donning a protective mask as prior to the match, cell phone video aired of her, Tara, Tessmacher and Rosita brawling following last week’s show. Sarita suffered a broken orbital bone and jaw from the fight, resulting in her need for protection.
Sarita recently suffered facial paralysis, which she announced two weeks ago via Facebook, and legitimately needs to wear the mask. Despite her loss of muscle function, she continues to fulfill her wrestling obligations as she worked this past weekend’s World Wrestling Council Aniversario 2011 events in Puerto Rico. She is also scheduled to work this weekend’s Impact Wrestling live event tour in tag team matches against Tessmacher and Velvet Sky.
