Tonight in her home country of Canada and what was her final Bound for Glory match, Gail Kim defeated Sienna and Allie in a Triple Threat match to win her seventh Knockouts Championship.

During the competitive match, Sienna tried taking down both of her challengers by simultaneously locking submissions on them and slamming them on top of another. As the match progressed, Allie managed to hit a Code Breaker on Sienna but Gail was quick respond with an Eat Defeat on Allie. As Gail went for the cover, Sienna managed to regroup to break the pin before the three count.

In the end, Sienna was able to toss Allie over the ropes and send her into the steel steps. Gail would follow up by connecting an Eat Defeat on Sienna from the top rope for the three count to become the new Knockouts Champion.

A listen from Jeremy Borash from the commentary would mention that “Gail Kim wins the Knockouts Championship in her final match”, hinting that this could be Gail’s last overall match with the company.

With the win, Gail now holds the record of most Knockouts Title reigns with seven.

What did you think of the match?

  • Rosanna

    Trish and Angelina did it best. Congrats though.

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      Angelina isn’t retired

      • Rosanna

        Trish retiring with the womens championship and a then Angelina having the most reigns. Until..

        • Gail-Rollins Fan

          Angelina didn’t have the most reigns, they were tied. Show respect for the GOAT or gtfo of here with your shady ass. You probably look more like Rosanne than whoever you’re using in your pic anyways..

            “GOAT”
            Yes say it louder for the people in the back, FACTS only.

          • SashaBella

            Gail Kim is good but they just copied off of what WWE did with Trish

          • Robin Zabriskie

            copy…..what a word in wrestling…..like nxt copied tna for the women’s revolution?

          • perceval

            NXT was inspired by UFC, actually. The Knockouts division was the spiritual successor to the Golden Era WWE Women’s division.

            Vince could still take lessons regarding babyfaces from UFC. Take this weekend, for example…

            https://youtu.be/UWl2fVxb-Mc

            What do you know, you CAN get a pure babyface that wants everyone to hug each other over with the crowds. Pro wrestling writers would have considered that whole storyline too corny, especially when uberheel Joanna told Rose she was going to eat her soul, with Rose responding with the Lord’s Prayer.

            Of course, Joanna was being the uberheel to sell the fight, having learned how to play the part from watching Ronda and Conor. They understood that it’s good business to get people so riled up that they’ll buy tickets and PPVs hoping to see you get your ass kicked. Conor even said that’s why he does it.

            Maybe Ronda can teach WWE Creative how to book. MMA really shouldn’t be better at developing characters and building storylines than pro wrestling.

          • Robin Zabriskie

            yeah but if we change this dynamic we are changing the entire game as well….i know that now the average fan is well informed, he knows wwe, tna, roh, and even mma…..so I can understand that some fans want to bring some mma style in wrestling, but it’s still different, they are still characters, they still play a part…..if we book them like in mma we are changing wrestling too much…..that’s my opinion at least…

          • perceval

            Well, all MMA is is classic pro wrestling, just without the predetermined outcomes. All these supposed “MMA moves” were done in pro wrestling decades before the first UFC event. To use the Golden Era as an example, notice most of what they did, especially Trish and Victoria, was what folks now call MMA moves (strikes, kicks, submissions). Hell, Kelly F’n Kelly’s offense was mainly MMA stuff. She especially loved Ground and Pound.

            But, what UFC is really good at that WWE can’t figure out is getting fans behind babyfaces and wanting to see the heels get their asses kicked to the point that they buy tickets and PPVs. Thug Rose and Holly Holm are perfect models for how to write Bayley in a way that gets her over, for example.

          • Robin Zabriskie

            Now in wwe fans just love heels cause they’re cooler than faces…..something is wrong with that, they really don’t know how to beat average fan’s expectations…..are writers so bad that most of their babyfaces are so lame that fans just can’t stand them?

          • perceval

            Well, take a look at Alexa’s run. She trashes Bayley by saying she doesn’t have what it takes to be hardcore and win, followed by Bayley not having what it takes to be hardcore and win, burying her. Alexa trashes Sasha by saying she can never successfully defend a Championship, followed by Sasha not being successful in defending a Championship, burying her. Alexa trashes Mickie by saying she’s too old to win the Championship, followed by…

            WWE doesn’t know how to get faces over, but they sure know how to bury them.

          • Robin Zabriskie

            they are just in love with alexa now…..blonde white and good with the mic…..easy for them, they don’t want something different….

          • Looking Glass

            It’s true that at one point the Knockouts were the MVP of TNA and were breaking the glass ceiling for women in the wrestling industry….but then they declined and declined and declined some more. There wouldn’t have been a Women’s Revolution is the Knockouts were consistent but the truth is we got poor booking, bad storylines and more Velvet Sky returns than anyone ever needed.

          • #ROSEARMY

            Trish Stratus is undeniably the more rounded sports entertainer, but as far as comparisons to being a pure bred wrestler go, Gail Kim has been in a league of her own for a decade now.

            Something Kim often doesn’t receive enough credit for is how she subtly evolved her character game through her wrestling styles over the years: valiant underdog, embittered veteran, methodical heel, kickass babyface… Gail’s run the gamut and even when the Knockouts division was at its lowest, she was always consistent.

          • Mark?

            GOAT? You need mic skills and charisma to be considered the GOAT.

          • Rosanna

            I won’t make me though.

  • She deserves this! Awesome career she had!

  • Bliss = Goddess

    Is Gail really retired or she just leaving TNA?

    • Juan

      Really retired. She’s been fighting through a bad back for a while now, so I guess that’s one reason why she is retiring this year.

    • LBOneOfKind

      Gail is working backstage as trainer and the person in charge of knockouts division so she is staying but she is retiring from the ring

  • Danny?

    I still hadn’t accepted the fact that Gail was actually going to retire. Like I didn’t want to believe it was true even though it clearly was. She is my second favourite of all time just under Mickie James and I’m really going to miss her. Summer & Emma get released last Sunday and now Gail has retired this Sunday good lord…
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d544195d8a7ee02219e70e6c64d20ec0e7339afb282a870ee1a85f7cf4f26e82.gif

    • DayOneISH!

      Maybe Emma and summer can go to TNA?

      • A?.

        God no, TNA is falling to pieces. They don’t deserve that.

  • Randall

    Of course she would win… I’m guessing people who watch GFW will have to sit through a womens tournament to determine the next champion. Should have just given to Allie.

    • Bliss = Goddess

      Allie character is kind of a joke tho

      • Randall

        I agree.! I just think it’s kind of ridiculous to have these women have storybook endings instead of just passing the torch, don’t get me wrong Gail deserves it but I think the easy way to go about it is to put other talent over.

        • Bliss = Goddess

          Rosemary would have been a definite yes but Allie idk

          • Michael Burmeister

            Sadly, Impact is treating Allie exactly the way WWE treated Emma…the only difference is, my hashtag campaign isn’t catching on.

          • Bliss = Goddess

            At least she’s still employed

          • Michael Burmeister

            If Allie keeps getting treated like this for too much longer, she should ask for her release…I know her ol’ Kimber Bombs teammate Abbey Laith would be happy to reunite their team to help establish the WWE Women’s Tag Team Division!

          • Bliss = Goddess

            You think wwe would hire Allie?

          • Michael Burmeister

            Not under her current character…they’d package her as the veteran she is.

          • Steven5812

            Oh, I hope not. :(
            But then this is the same company who blew off Jade for some washed up MMA gal; maybe I’m just worrying unnecessarily.

          • Steven5812

            AND she’s still got Ol’ Baldilocks.

    • Troy Smith

      They may not do a tournament. But even if they do, what’s wrong with that? That’s a lot of TV time for the women.

    • LBOneOfKind

      Gail deserved to go out on top, and whats wrong with them doing a tournament for belt. i’m totally here for that

    • Coming from an Alexa Bliss mark; you don’t get to speak sir.

      • Welchy

        He just spoke and it was loud and clear, sir.

        • Sweetie, I didn’t send for you; so don’t come for me. K thanks.

          • Welchy

            I asked?

      • Randall

        Oh shut the hell up… your always in something! A damn busy body. You must read every damn thing I post and I’m rarely on here. But then again I’m not surprised you are the troll of diva dirt. Smdh

        • *You’re; the word is you’re. If you’re going to come at me with a tired ass clap back, I need you to learn r?u?d?i?m?e?n?t?a?r?y (sorry, too big of a word) basic grammar. Lastly, in regard to your pissy little attitude, I’ll be the bigger person and leave you with this…

            Lmfao tired ass clap back? No one even attempted to clap back at your ass! TF? I forgot I’m on diva dirt and y’all like to turn shit into arguments because you obviously get entertained by it! Butthurt? Never that I don’t take wrestling that seriously like you do to ever be butthurt!

  • Michael Burmeister

    Actually checked the details.,..just grateful Allie wasn’t pinned…so there is some hope here.

    I suppose Gail Kim HAS earned an exception to the “retirees put over their opponent” rule…still, Allie deserved her title win to be a BIG moment…so it’s either gonna be at a pre-taped show 2 months in advance or it’s not gonna be ’till next BFG, I guess…if they keep doing her wrong, she should ask for her release, build her name back up in the indies as the veteran we KNOW she is, and see about getting Trips’ attention so she can go somewhere she’ll be pushed (At least reunite her with her old Kimber Bombs teammate Abbey Laith)

  • Gail-Rollins Fan
    • Bliss = Goddess

      JR has said stuff I know you wouldn’t agree with tho but anyway I agree with him here

      • Gail-Rollins Fan

        He’s said Gail is the standard bearer for Women’s Wrestling. There’s not too much I disagree with him on.

        • Bliss = Goddess

          Like i said he’s said stuff that you completely disagree with and that I agree with but hey this is gails moment congrats to her

  • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

    Gail a queen but Trish doesn’t know what a Impact Wrestling is.

  • Ryan Stratus

    Gail is a great wrestler but not goat. Sorry but she can’t sit with us (Stratuspherians).

    • AlexV
      • Ryan Stratus

        ????

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      Trish is the greatest woman in WWE history. She was the full package, and the reason I started watching wrestling. But Gail is the greatest women’s WRESTLER of all time.

      • Ryan Stratus

        Well the greatest knockout of all time. No shade. She’s just the Trish Stratus of Impact.

        • Gail-Rollins Fan

          No, the greatest women’s wrestler. And yes she was Impacts “Trish” but even Trish can’t compete with Gail’s collection of matches. And I’m sorry but: Gail/Kong > Trish/Lita

          • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

            Sorry Gail isn’t the greatest female wrestler.. doesn’t have the same impact as Trish Lita Mickie Chyna Allundra and countless others. You can say she wasn’t given the same opportunities but I mean. ???? At that point we’re just gonna be talking hypothetically.

          • Gail-Rollins Fan

            What did Mickie do after her feud with Trish that was anywhere near Gail’s level? Knockouts killed the Divas during the time that Mickie was on top. She can’t even beat Alexa Bliss now.

            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e862b7a7b3e4766f49588aed0ea7563bf17f4b0e6f8be82019613a5f54157ce0.gif

          • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

            Lmao that has nothing to do with shit. Gail stayed jobbing to Alicia Fox on superstars in her WWE run. Mickie is way more decorated than Gail. How many titles in WWE has Gail won? But you’re delusional so… ????

          • Gail-Rollins Fan

            Oh man, if only Gail had done stuff after that failed WWE run… OH WAIT she was off keeping women’s wrestling elevated while the Divas were still sucking ass. WWE isn’t the only place where accomplishments count.

            Mickie is the most decorated woman of all time if you count title reigns, but she’s an overrated wrestler, and that shows when she’s not in the ring with someone that’s great.

          • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

            I mean it’s ur opinion saying Gail is the best of all time. But for me she isn’t. Maybe top 10 but to me she fails when it comes to her character. She never had that fire.

          • Gail-Rollins Fan

            I said best women’s WRESTLER of all time. Meaning JUST wrestling.

            Trish Stratus is the best woman of all time. (meaning all around complete package). Pretty sure I said that up there. Read dear, read..

          • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

            Okay I see it now but I don’t think that comment was directed at me so I didn’t see it. Gail as the best women’s wrestler doesn’t sit right with me and would still be a no, I don’t think she’s the best but she’d still be high on my list. But like I said we’re entitled to our opinions.

          • Gail-Rollins Fan

            Have you seen all of her TNA stuff though? The only person I could maybe see putting above her is Victoria/Tara. Nobody else remotely has the collection of matches she has. Charlotte will by the time she retires. But not yet.

          • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

            I have seen most of her matches and would say she’s one of the best out of the Diva era. But right now saying she’s the best of all time… that’s questionable.

          • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

            Btw sometimes character involves your wrestling. If you can’t get the crowd invested in your matches then you can’t be THAT good.

          • Izzy4lw

            Now I will start by saying that Gail Kim is hands down the best Women’s wrestler the Americas have probably ever seen (An argument could be made for Melina in her prime, Victoria/Tara, Michelle McCool, and given a few more years, Sasha Banks and Charlotte) but I don’t think Mickie’s skills are overrated. Mickie James is a great in ring talent and certainly can hold her own against people like Asuka, Sasha, Charlotte, Bayley, etc. Her ONLY downfall as a wrestler is that she isn’t a ring general; that is, she can’t make wrestlers look better like Beth/Michelle could. If anything, Mickie James has ring psychology down probably better than most people and has a strong, if repetitive, move set. But Gail Kim is on another level as far as wrestling is concerned. Very few women can touch her in the ring skills department, but I don’t think she’s overrated as a rule.

          • LIGHTSOUT

            “Gail stayed jobbing to Alicia Fox on superstars in her WWE run” LOL check your facts henny, they were pretty much even in wins/loses.

          • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

            Maybe but Gail was still considered a jobber and to top it off wasn’t over at all so she stayed that way.

          • Highkey key. During 2007- divas title era the knockouts were it! WWE couldn’t take

          • Gail-Rollins Fan

            And you don’t even watch TNA so you don’t know what kind of Impact she’s had on the business except for her WWE stuff. So either go educate yourself or sit tf down.

          • LIGHTSOUT

            “doesn’t have the same impact as Trish Lita Mickie Chyna Allundra” Gail, along Kong, were responsible for bringing back attention to main stream women’s wrestling at a time were they were just seen as eye candy. And she kept it that way after she returned to TNA, so yes, she IS one of the GOAT.

          • Ryan Stratus

            Gail and Kong was great but theyre no Trish/Lita. Trish and Lita broke down barriers for the likes of Kim and Kong. Gail even mentioned Trish as her biggest inspiration.

          • Gail-Rollins Fan

            Gail and Kong brought women’s wrestling back after Trish & Lita retired and took it to a whole new level. But I personally think Trish/Victoria was better than Trish/Lita so..

          • Ryan Stratus

            Trish vs Lita was a continuing rivalry for years that never died down. Kong last run against Gail was stale. I enjoyed Gail vs Angelina matches more. Angelina is right up there with Gail

          • Gail-Rollins Fan

            I was talking about the original Gail/Kong feud. The recent one was never going to top it, the expectations were far too high.

          • Ryan Stratus

            Trish and Mickie fued was amazing and the ring work was picture perfect. I mean Trish sold that DDT in 6 in. heels and made it look easy. Trish and Mickie are in the top 5 most decorated women in wrestling history and their fued is one of the best. Trish vs Lita were the first to headline Raw. If the WWE thought they were sloppy, they wouldnt have been granted that match making history like Legends should. Yes Trish vs Victoria was amazing too but emotions werent set in like they were with trish/mickie/lita fued. I do believe if Angelina was consistent on impact she would be a 10x KO champion by now. There was something special about her that brought out the best in all the women. Such a Queen.

          • Gail-Rollins Fan

            Trish and Mickie’s matches had so much botches.

          • Ryan Stratus

            Id like to agree to disagree. But since we’re talking about botches. Gail kims last run with WWE was nothing but botches lmao!! I remember cringing so hard when she botched Mickies DDT. ?

          • Gail-Rollins Fan

            They botched the whole ending to the Wrestlemania match. You blind?

            And Gail didn’t botched way less than most of the Divas from that horrible era where that match with Mickie happened (all though that was a terrible botch).

            Notice the common denominator in the two matches though? Mickie James has actually hit her spin kick about as many times as Foxy has landed her axe kick correctly.

          • Ryan Stratus

            That was one botch. Gail couldnt even sell a DDT nor the Mick Kick. Humble yourself babes. Angelina honestly has more memorable matches. Nothing against gail but she was just there and her moveset never changed through out the years. Gail was the only original K.O. left, thats why she had a Trish Stratus retirement. They couldnt even plan Gail her own retirement so they tried to re write the most iconic moment in womens wrestling history and failed miserably. No thank you gail chants. Nothing. Nada.

          • Gail-Rollins Fan

            Wrong hun there were “you deserve it!” and “thank you Gail!” chants live at the event, but we only got 20 seconds of her celebration on TV.

            Angelina Love is awesome, but she doesn’t have the collection of matches Gail does.

            *Goes to check your profile* AH just as I suspected..

            You’re the type of fan that just picks all of the blondes as their favorites and stans for them just because they’re “pretty” and “fierce”. You think Alexa Bliss is a great wrestler LMFAO

            “Gail couldnt even sell a DDT” check your facts again, but I guess you don’t watch TNA, oh wel..

            “Angelina honestly has more memorable matches.” I don’t see her matches getting featured as much as Gail’s, nor as remembered.

            “she was just there and her moveset never changed through out the years” you don’t follow her that much, do you? LOL

          • Ryan Stratus

            BUUUUUUT ill let Gail have her moment. Just stay humble bc the fact of the matter is Trish is the creme de La Creme and Gail is the Great Value version of Trish Stratus. ?

          • Gail-Rollins Fan

            I love Trish Stratus. Like I said she’s the reason I got into wrestling. But if you really want to get nasty, then lets talk about her comeback when she got out popped by Smelly Kelly and nobody gave a fuck about her and laughed as she botched her Stratusphere

            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5cecd73f3b2063e227541631be6d4462f10c4c33144bea0c1b1f53806beb26b8.gif

            Okay enough ! ?

          • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

            Lmao Gail was involved in probably one of the worst WM matches the women ever had (WM 26) so was Mickie. That ending where each woman botched their finisher… flop fest.

          • LIGHTSOUT

            “Gail kims last run with WWE was nothing but botches lmao!” lol you just mean that failed match ending with Mickie? Because apart from, the majority of her matches were pretty much clean with no ugly botches, so stop spreading lies.

          • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

            Gail has had her fair share of botchy matches so…

          • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

            Trish vs Mickie is one of if not the best women’s feud of all time. Mickie getting the most character development probably ever.. counting the men too!

          • Gail-Rollins Fan

            It’s actually my least favorite Trish feud. The story was perfect, but oh child that ringwork was…

            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/88c2e7459f62901e843939feb00e3342df00640ad8a77cf0aeb6762bc98a77c5.gif

          • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

            You have such high standards for a Gail stan. But their NYR match was much better than the Mania match. At least the crowd was there for it still… more than I can say for ms kim.

          • Gail-Rollins Fan

            “You have such high standards for a Gail stan” um if anything that’s WHY I have such high standards. Name someone more crisp/precise in the ring than Gail who’s name isn’t Asuka.

            The Trish/Mickie matches were full of botches.

            And I’m not sure what that last comment was supposed to mean..

          • LIGHTSOUT

            “You have such high standards for a Gail stan” lol, Gail is the definition of HIGH standard

          • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

            Girl Gail has had PLENTY of sloppy horrible matches…. um apparently her last match was “bad”. Trish’s was iconic.

          • Trish botched the finish of her retirement match though.
            They both had alot of sloppy matches for sure.

          • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

            When she fell after the sharpshooter? Trish has always been good at covering up botches. A true legend.

          • She is great at covering up botches sometimes yes. How did this become a Gail vs Trish war though?
            Should’ve been about remembering Gail’s career and everything she’s done for women’s wrestling without taking digs at her and comparing her to Trish. There’s no comparison. Two different women, two different styles, two different legacies.

          • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

            I said a joke and then it led to others chiming in as well. lol I didn’t mean for it to.

          • Ahh…people taking things too seriously…

          • C Mack

            Trish and Lita had the better rivalry. Gail and Kong had much better matches tho

        “Gail is the greatest women’s WRESTLER of all time.” No that would be Manami Toyota.

    • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

      Yas girl

    • LIGHTSOUT

      She sits on her own throne, thank you :)

    • Why would she want to sit with mediocrity in Sable 2.0??

    • Moan of ‘Licia

      Trish won’t sit with you or your fellow racist brothers.

      • Ryan Stratus

        Racist? I love chocolate. Bye MoanoHosa. ??

  • OJ Von Erich

    Can we please talk about our next Knockouts champion The Hot Mess Express Laurel Van Ness hitting the Unprettier on Grado?

    • Women’s Revolution

      She came through! She gave me life intervening in the match. It was expected, but Rosemary was a treat. I enjoyed their presence during the Monster’s Ball.

      • OJ Von Erich

        LVN gives me life in whatever she does haha, the spot with Rosemary, the mist & Abyss was definitely a treat.

        • Women’s Revolution

          Definitely when she teased with Janice.

          I’m rooting for LVN to be the next Champion too. The girl is entertaining.

    • Steven5812

      Well, you know what they say about PAYBACK…
      But it looks like we’re finally going to see the Vengeful Vindictive Insane Jilted Fiancee I’d hoped to see after the (UN)Wedding.

  • LBOneOfKind

    i’m very Happy to see Gail go out on top like she deserves to be now your Record Setting first 7x Knockouts Champion

  • Mr. Saberhagen
  • 3???????
  • 3???????

    Was the match good at least?

    • GEO

      It was okay…Sienna held it back a lot…

    • Women’s Revolution

      No.

      As much as I want to be emotional for Gail Kim final match in Impact Wrestling after all she did for the company, I can’t. Why? Because she deserves better than what she had to make with work tonight.

      She didn’t get confetti, a thank you Gail! Nothing!

      The match was sloppy.

      • LBOneOfKind

        she’ll definitely get her celebration on Impact this week, that AEP Promo went over time limit and most matches that followed it had be shorter than they planned it to be.

        • Gail-Rollins Fan

          She’s not supposed to be doing the tapings. This was it.

          • LBOneOfKind

            really i thought she just wasnt wrestling on tapings tho? i know she’ll be backstage cause she and Scott D’More will be in charge of creative / booking of knockouts division

          • Troy Smith

            She has to be at the tapings to relinquish the title.

  • OJ Von Erich
    • #ROSEARMY

      The girl is a star in the making but it’s time to get serious with her character. She could be a psychotic heel like Victoria or Mickie with this bunny boiler gimmick, but the clown antics and caricature image has to go.

    • This NEEDS to be her finisher. It looks a lot better than her Curb Stomp.

  • Women’s Revolution

    I think I would’ve given Gail Kim a better send-off than what she was given…

    (All Criticism accepted lol. Might save me from a fan fiction I want to produce).

    Picture this: Bound for Glory: The Knockouts 10th Year Anniversary.

    A 10 woman gauntlet match is booked featuring the Knockouts (Sienna, Gail Kim, Taryn Terrell, Rosemary, Taya, and Allie since they were all thrown together in one segment before it shifted Taya vs Rosemary away from the group.) That’s 6 Knockouts right there. To pay homage to the division, Knockouts of the past and future could enter as surprised entrances for the match (ODB, Angelina Love, Awesome Kong, and Alisha Edwards (she did win a contract and had one match. She can at least contribute. Lol).

    I’d even let an under the ropes situation go down to get some outside of the ring action featuring the final 4: Gail Kim, Allie, Taryn Terrell, and Sienna (see what I did lol).

    Anyway, Gail Kim would win and get a well deserved send off defeating Taryn Terrell by eat defeat since they’d be the final 2.

    (The original gauntlet consisted of 10 KO: Gail Kim, Tracy Brooks, Christy Hemme, Jacqueline, Roxxi, Shelly Martinez (later Salinas), Angelina Love, Velvet Sky, ODB, and Awesome Kong)

    It’s purpose is to pay homage to the Knockouts Division for going strong 10 years and give their pioneer a well deserved send off.

    • LBOneOfKind

      Taryn and Taya cant travel to Canada so you probably have rewrite this cause both girls said on twitter they both planned to wrestle at BFG but due to circumstances out there control plans changed at last minute

      • Women’s Revolution

        True. That was the reason why Taryn left. Her return was meaningless anyways since she couldn’t thwart Gail.

        Are they taping in Canada for the remainder of the year?

        • LBOneOfKind

          i heard they going back to orlando in January for a set of tapings

        • StarmanJames

          I’m intrigued what the original plan was with Taryn involved. I think she’d have turned face and helped her in the end. Or maybe a handshake at least.

  • I hope Sienna doesn’t win back I think it’s time for someone different be champion.

  • Becca England

    So Gail is pretty much the trish stratus of impact. She holds the record for title holds at 7 and she win the title at her last match. (Nothing wrong with that, just saying.)

    • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

      Not really it took her nearly to do what Trish did in almost half the time. She’s the Gail of Impact.

      • Gail-Rollins Fan

        Technically Gail is an 8 time women’s champ, and one time tag champ while Trish is a 7 time women’s champ and one time hardcore champ. Just like Mickie is a 9 time women’s champ.

        • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

          But with them all in the same division Trish was above them both.

    • Randall

      Trish of the impact just with a lack of charisma!

      • LIGHTSOUT

        And better in ring skills

  • Ryan Stratus

    Its so nice to see the Great Value version of Trish Stratus go out on top!!!!! ??

    • C Mack

      Bruh even Trish would tell you that Gail’s a better wrestler than her

      • Zeek Jones

        trish really isn’t that great to be honest shes ok in my opinion

    • Cabbyhighs
    • LIGHTSOUT

      lol Gail could wrestle circles around Trish, so stay talking shit :*

      • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

        Well NOW she could… Gail has been wrestling for 10+ years. Trish was actually really good from 2003-06.

        • perceval

          Yeah, Gail even said a few years back that she wanted to work with Trish again now that she wasn’t as green as she was back in the day. Everyone forgets that Gail was the queen of botches before Molly took her under her wing, just as she’d done for Trish, before.

          https://youtu.be/_c0mG4_yy5g

          One little detail I like about this segment is how Molly looks at her proteges so proudly.

  • conan_kun

    When will Gail come out from retirement and wrestle again.

  • Robin Zabriskie

    Thank you Gail, we need to thank you and Traci Brooks if we had this amazing division, you were fighting with the management to have this opportunity and now you will always be remembered as the greatest Knockout ever!!!

  • Why are people comparing her to Trish now? This isn’t about her, show some respect for Gail.

    As for the argument below, Trish is the best total package in the mainstream wrestling while Gail is the best WRESTLER. Period.

    • Ev?

      I’m so mad at Sienna for being trash in Gail’s last match

      • Not her first or last time.

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      Exactly

    • Mic Skills Required

      Nope.

      • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

        Lmao iconic

    • LIGHTSOUT

      Tell them

    • FlawlessMickie ?

      How is Gail’s ring work anything special? She’s good but not innovative in the slightest.

      • … Watch her matches …

        • FlawlessMickie ?

          Girl what has she done different from anyone else? Also look at Impact like her contributions haven’t really made impact anything “great”. The company is doing horribly.

          • She elevated the women’s division to another heights when there was no opportunity. She fought hard for them to be the spotlight again and she made her mark, or should I say Impact :)

          • FlawlessMickie ?

            Gail has nothing to do with the women’s revolution. Impact wanted to make women’s wrestling a thing where they are because at the time WWE wasnt. It honestly had nothing to do with Gail.

          • Gail was begging and demanding for the women’s division for 2 years and they finally granted her wish. Do your research.

          • StarmanJames

            Exactly. What WWE did was piggyback off what TNA were doing years before. Gail was instrumental in the state of women’s wrestling today.

    • John Finnie

      You said it…. respect!!! they are both respected by everyone who works with them & thats the comparison

    • perceval

      C’mon, you have to admit they were trying to recreate Unforgiven 2006, here. That’s not taking anything from Gail, just pointing out the obvious regarding Impact’s booking.

      • It was always the plan for Gail to retire on top so I don’t know why people suddenly act surprised.

        • perceval

          People like to complain. If she hadn’t won, people would have complained. She won, so people are complaining about that, instead.

          My only gripe was the build and match just wasn’t the big moment the one they were modeling it on was.

  • Ev?
    • LIGHTSOUT

      fckers

  • Joseph

    Gail Kim isn’t even the best female wrestler ever that goes to Manami Toyota.

  • Mark?

    Not TNA trying to duplicate my queen Trish’s retirement… LOL.

  • Geo14

    Bye!

    Who is gonna be the next champion, Gemma or Summer Rain?

    • Sable’s Bumps

      Autumn Rain!

    • Gato_wiska

      I think Emma can still use the Emma name on Impact if she will add a lastname. Christian was Christian Cage on Impact. Emma can be Emma Dashwood.

      LOL I love Autumn Rain!

  • They have her the trish ending… she definitely deserved it as well

  • Y’all really couldn’t let Gail have this moment and had to make stupid comparisons to Trish. One of the greatest women’s wrestler retired and instead of showing respect, you prefered to turn this into some sort of stan war lol.

    As of the match itself, it was ok. She deserved a better send-off and cutting her celebration was rude, but at least she went out on her own terms and I respect that.

    And now I have to come to terms with the fact that Gail Kim and Manami Toyota both retired the same week… A sad week for women’s wrestling.

    • Mark?

      Sorry but Total Non-Stop FLOP copied and pasted my Queen’s retirement match and that is [email protected]

      • perceval

        Not quite. The build wasn’t as good, no iconic foe to face… But, since she was pretty much the Trish of the Knockouts, that’s what they were going for.

        • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

          Gail was not the Trish of the KO’s please keep that

          • perceval

            The Knockouts division was built around her, just as the Golden Era women’s division was built around Trish.

          • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

            They are still two different women. I can’t compare.

          • Moan of ‘Licia

            Keep yourself.

    • Michael Burmeister

      I’m still trying to figure out what constitutes being granted an exception to a long-held unwritten rule of the business?

      • Eh, sometimes you can make a case for it. Gail did a lot for the knockout division, I don’t mind her retiring on top. I see it as a reward for her hard work and loyalty.

        And if she was to retire on her back and give the rub to someone, a triple threat wasn’t the ideal scenario.

      • perceval

        They were trying to recreate Trish’s retirement. As for Trish, herself, that was a special case.

    • #ROSEARMY

      Gail and Trish are two completely separate entities in my opinion.

      Trish being the ultimate template for US female wrestling success is a bit of a catch 22. She had a memorable run within the 6 years of being active, but most of her contemporaries and those who started their careers after her retirement have been wrestling for twice as long as she did – some, like Mickie James being a clear example, have etched their names in the history books for achieving a wider degree of championships.

      Like, I get why everyone would want a slice of Trish’s career, but the encompassing body of work of the aforementioned other women (Mickie, Gail, Lisa Marie Varon, even Sasha Banks) is more iconic for me personally.

      I suppose it all depends on one’s consumption of wrestling content.

      • PYM #TakeOverSmackdown

        They really are. I just made a joke because Trish and Gail were both at 7 I didn’t mean for it to turn into a stan war. But that Gail-Rollins fan or whatever his name is gets real defensive over Gail. But w/e ????

    • perceval

      Well, to me, it’s more a comment on Impact. Obviously, they were trying to recreate Unforgiven 2006. They just didn’t do a good job of it. This lacked the whole End of an Era feel that Trish’s retirement had, and then cutting off her celebration on top of it… TNA’s gonna TNA, even though they don’t call themselves that, any more.

  • LIGHTSOUT

    She should’ve had this kind of match

  • #ROSEARMY

    I didn’t like the match as much as I wanted to and a lot of that falls onto TNA’s build of other women. Sienna just isn’t very good, or at least consistent, and Allie should have been in Sienna’s spot as the strong champion after the fallout of her program with Maria. Gail busted her ass off to flog the match as per, but I didn’t feel the quality of work was as meaningful as it needed to be for a fitting send off. Still, I adore Gail Kim and will miss watching her wrestle on TV.

  • John Finnie

    First congrats gail you really do deserve it….
    Next rosemary heel turn?

    The best & most funny thing is Naomi snatching lanas bun on aberdeen house show faf

  • PhiPhiBanks

    Congrats to Gail, truly deserved.

  • John Finnie
  • Nicola Byrne

    Honestly, really didn’t enjoy the match that much. Would have preferred if Gail’s retirement match to be singles match against Kong. It was a copy of Trish’s retirement match from 11 years ago.

  • Why is this a Trish vs Gail fan war???
    Damn people just can’t not be petty on this site

    • People on here are weird and talk a of junk but I’m sure in person they’d be on hush mute. Always wanna argue with someone

  • Kiana Taylor

    Why are you rude cunts disrespecting this queen”s moments with bull shit, y’all better bow down and put some respect on queen kim”s name https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/41dad8500b2974b1e596ad86e132304430556062ff91fd4f3bb8775abc39568c.gif

  • Tonx

    What is wrong with some of y’all? Gail has done so much for women’s wrestling and in her retirement match, where we should be thanking her for all the amazing matches she’s had, some of y’all just want to tear her down. Is your life that unfulfilling that you feel the need to be hateful to one of the best workers to ever grace the North American wrestling scene? She’s arguably in the top 5 workers in women’s wrestling. Don’t be trash, and show some respect, geez

    • StarmanJames

      They probably don’t even agree with what they’re are saying, they’re just arguing for the sake of it because they know people will respond.

  • It

    trash

  • It

    Overrated!

  • Tunasha

    Haven’t seen the match, but I’m glad Gail took the title back home. Sienna needs more work, she still has this kind of slow indy style which is boring, especially if the girls get few mins to put on a match.

    Now, obviously there were going to be comparions with Trish Stratus because of the 7 reigns, but who cares? Why are some wrestling fans, especially women wrestling fans, so eager to tear the wrestlers apart just because they please? Let’s just celebrate Gail’ legacy and be thankful for sll the years she has been entertaining us.

    I don’t get the “retiring wrestler should always lose” like Ricochet thinks, but Gail has earned pretty much to go on top, but I wouldn’t mind if her last match is against Allie on the next set of tapings. Just not Sienna again please.

    Congrats Gail on a great career!!! No many women can say they been wrestling on TV for 15 years!

  • ?Naomi?

    I’ve always like Gail. Such an amazing wrestler and performer. Congratulations Gail on becoming a pioneer of women’s wrestling. She’s so fluid in the ring just excellent.

  • Looking Glass

    That title literally looks so botched now, talk about a rush job.

  • MK126

    Can we get a RAW spoiler page? I wanna talk about these spoilers >_<

  • Moan of ‘Licia

    Hardly anyone gives Gail Kim the credit she deserves. While Golden Era planted the seed for womens revolution, it was the knockouts with Gail Kim as the leader that brought forward the womens revolution. Before WWE decided to jump on board in an attempt to look hip, trendy and feminist, the knockouts were having ladder matches, cage matches, gauntlet matches, street fights. Matches that put men to shame.

    If you haven’t watched TNA from early on in 2007, and seen Gail Kim fighting men and then throughout the year moving onto the women and by the end of the year being crowned the first ever knockouts champion, thus birthing a new era in womens wrestling in the process you wouldn’t know. She fought for a revolution. She was ahead of the rest.

    No, she is not an ungrateful twat or a primadonna for eliminating herself from a pathetic WWE divas match. She knew what women in wrestling should be worth, and simply decided to save her legacy in the best way possible. She went back to TNA, and saved the division during a time we were being forced to watch a pathetic Velvet Sky push. Thank you, Gail Kim. You are a legend in wrestling.

  • I’m happy for Gail. Breaking the tie with Angelina (I think) & retiring as champ. A pioneer, a true queen. The future looks bright

  • StarmanJames

    Nice to see someone go out on their own terms, healthy and with the fairytale ending. Makes you realise how rare it is. Gail deserves it for all she done for women’s wrestling and the entertainment she’s provided us.
