On this week’s Impact Wrestling, TNA Hall of Famer Gail Kim made her return to Impact Wrestling since Bound for Glory – where she won her seventh Knockouts Championship in what was her final match with the company.

During an in-ring segment alongside Impact Wrestling broadcaster Jeremy Borash and fellow Knockout Allie, Gail addressed the fans with a farewell speech and announcement that she was relinquishing the Knockouts Title.

In her emotional farewell speech, Gail recalled growing up in Canada with a love for wrestling and desire to pursue a career in it. She took a moment to thank the women who helped pave the road for her, name dropping Trish Stratus, Lita, Molly Holly, Awesome Kong and Taryn Terrell.

In closing, Gail says her heart is full and of peace with her decision to retire but is excited to see what is next for her life and what is next for the generation of Knockouts who will continue to carry the legacy of their division.

Impact Wrestling also announced that beginning November 30th, a six Knockouts Tournament will begin to determine a new Knockouts Champion.

    All things considered, a classy swansong for a class act. Gail Kim’s contributions towards the credibility of women in wrestling will be enduringly influential. And I, for one, will miss watching her wrestle on TV.

    I can’t wait to see how she continues to reshape women’s wrestling in a creative role!

    I’m really going to miss her. Gail Kim is an icon in this industry. She truly is a pioneer in women’s wrestling.

  • That music video was really cute. I’m still disappointed her last match was a triple threat with no build up. She was in the first match I’ve ever seen, she got me into wrestling and for that I will be forever grateful.

    Although I STILL think she should have Passed The Torch to ALLIE @ BFG I will miss Kim too.

      Impact has killed the hype for Allie through terrible booking of her character. The slow build for her worked, but they never capitalized on it when her hype had become a fever pitch – she should have been champion for a couple months now, but sadly they missed their window and her popularity is now in free fall.

      They should have capatalized on Allie during her fued with Maria

    I cried when I watched this.. not lying

    For a woman who gave us SO MUCH and SO MANY moments over the last 15 years this was a lukewarm way to send her off. HOWEVER…i’m so glad she was able to leave on her own terms and like Trish…on top.

    The video was really cute , it made me a little emotional BUT I am hoping someday the WWE wises up and adds her into the HOF, maybe when they purchase or buy out Impact they’ll have it in them to do so. I really don’t feel a connection to the knockouts anymore though, Gail was it for so many years. That Belt should have retired with her and they should have rebranded the division after her leaving.

  • Where is the NXT redux page? Find someone new if the person who’s supposed to do it is busy.

    • ???

      Shame , because it hype kind of episode plus a good match between Ember and Mercedes.

      We are going through big changes for the site going forward. We MAY make an official article about these when the time is right. This will be one of this things that will be changed as a heads up. All I can say about it, is to expect a lot LESS Reduxes and Write-ups.

      • Alright, thanks for the answer!
