TNA will be heading to Canada later this month for a series of house shows, and ahead of the November 9th live event in Windsor, Ontario, Knockout Gail Kim has spoken of returning home.
The Impact Wrestling star spoke to SLAM! Wrestling to promote the upcoming tour and revealed how she prefers TNA’s schedule and their attitude towards their talent.
Speaking of the differences between her current employer and WWE, Kim said: “[TNA] has really focused on women’s wrestling in a different manner than WWE, and I just enjoy it more here. I’ve experienced both major promotions twice now, and I can honestly say that TNA is a better fit for me.”
Gail also expressed her gratitude at being named #1 in Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s Female 50.
“After 13 years, and now being a ‘grizzled veteran’, to be able to do what I love at the best of my abilities, and to be recognized for it, that’s quite an honor. To be doing well at this point in my career, I’m very happy, and it’s just what I want to keep doing.”
The inaugural Knockouts Champion also weighed in on working with Brooke Tessmacher, her early career wrestling under a mask, her marriage to ‘Restaurant: Impossible’ host Robert Irvine and more.
