Gail Kim and Melina Comment on Their WWE Departures

Gail Kim and Melina, who quit and were released by WWE respectively, have both commented on their departures from the company.

Kim, who requested her release, wrote on her Twitter page:

Every1 sounds upset or sad or me its the best thing ever. Now my life can begin. All the negativity is gone and control over my life. No one can hold me down but me now!

Meanwhile, Melina wrote on her Twitter page:

Feel free to Tweet, write, call @WWE about how u feel about anything. You deserve to be heard regarding any matter. Strength in numbers.

I love you all so dearly and reading all of your tweets. Seeing the trend… I know w/out a doubt, I’m a lucky woman!

In the next few days you will see many updates on the matter, so keep checking I will definitely Blog & Vlog about it.

I’ve been through quite a bit of stuff in my life. I Overcame each time. I’ll never give up. Not now. I’ll Always fight & #StayStrong

Melina’s boyfriend, WWE Superstar, John Morrison also posted a very moving message about Melina:

I’ve always believed that Melina is the most talented Diva ever employed by World Wrestling Entertainment. (not to mention the hottest!) Her face conveys emotion. Vince McMahon likes to say “Television is a feeling” and I agree with him. That’s what Sports Entertainment is all about. Melina’s presence on Television, aside from the obvious (she be sexy!) is raw emotion- joy, rage, surprise, disgust… her passion just pours out of her.
Melina’s presence on Monday Night Raw will be missed by the WWE universe… and especially by me.
I think this is the end of a chapter in the book of @RealMelina – I met Melina on my audition for Tough Enough 3, I never forgot the smile, and hug she gave me when I made the show and she got cut and told to go home. I’ve stood next to her with Joey while MNM was yelled at; told we’d never make it, we were worthless. I’ve seen her come back from 2 career threatening injuries. She is one of a kind, and talented enough to do whatever she wants. I’m proud to be her man. I love her, and will support whatever she chooses to do next.

    wow now gial kim and melina might go to tna?? idk i know gail might but what does that mean for the knockouts division, make melina join mexican america..but WWE should be regretting this

    • darkangels

      not long is miss tessMarcher there and she is tna rising star her and melina hates each other

      • Mikas

        Ah i forgot about that. And dont forget the Mickie-Melina stuff. So seeing Melina in TNA isnt 100% certain yet.

        • WWFoverWWE

          melina and mickie had issues in OVW but it was all over when both made onto the main roster. theres pictures of melina and mickie hugging and sharing a car together (when they were in WWE)

        • JoshiTom

          Melina has legit heat with Brooke Adams and Mickie James??

    • Juan

      with Brooke Adams not with Mickie James

  • A.E

    best wish for both of them .hopefully they continue to do what they are good at .i would love to see them at tna.if they do they well bring the ko’s division to a whole new direction.

    aw touched by morrison’s tweet

    • A.E

      wwe loss tna gain enough said.

  • shannymac

    Good for Gail! I’m sad to see her go, but I’m glad that she’s in a good place in her life. WWE never even gave her a chance to shine. I wish her all the happiness and success in the world.

    As for Melina, well I just hope she stays strong and doesn’t let this end her career. She’s an unbelievably talented and passionate woman, and she deserved better than to be just let go like this.

    • Raekon

      WWE gave Gail the championship in her raw debüt back then. They were only rather holding back after she went to TNA and came back again.

      I know its not a excuse for not using her lately at all(unless a few months before with daniel Bryan in storyline) but she had her championship and chance in wwe aswell.

  • WWFoverWWE

    I’m so happy for Gail, it’s like she has the whole world in front of her now, and she can do anything. I remember in Gail’s fairwell TNA interview, she said hopefully in the future she can finish her career in TNA

    as for melina, I bet it was pretty much a heartbreak moment. She gave everything to WWE but I guess at this point in her career, it was best for her to move on, even if she didn’t want too.

    • A.E

      agree with U on that point ,look were it took mickie and tara who they are happy at their new lives and i am sure the release of melina is for the better for her hopefully she start work at the independent scene before coming back to tv either TNA or ROH.

  • Kim099

    Melina is defiantly going to dancing with the stars now lol

  • WWFoverWWE

    Didn’t Gail just get married?? maybe she wants to start a family now while she can

    it’s just so sad that Gail wasted her time in WWE. They never gave her a divas title reign, and all she ever did was kiss Daniel bryan

    • Jaefoxx

      and have some catfights with the Bellas

      • WWFoverWWE

        oh yeah, but all those did was push the bellas as heels, it didn’t do anything for Gail

  • Anthony

    I’m bummed I won’t be seeing Gail Kim that much anymore. She was one of my favorite diva’s, purely amazing in the ring. I’m really happy that she quit though, good for you gail!

    As for Melina, I had a feeling she wouldn’t be around much longer. Still a shame to see her go, she was awesome in the ring and had a character like no other.

    Good luck to both ladies, TNA should be rolling with excitement about the news today. Gail back in TNA and Melina going to TNA would make the Knockout roster so stacked it wouldn’t even be funny.

    • Mikas

      Well, you didnt see Gail on tv anyway, same for Melina. So technically nothing has changed. Wether they are only used on houseshows and maybe once every 2 months on superstars, or that they are released doesnt really matter for the fans. Their release isnt going to effect anything.
      This isnt like the releases of Mickie James and Maria who were released even though they were on tv every week.

      • StraightEdg3Kid

        Good point….they released to divas that the typical fan won’t even notice are gone. As if they “never existed” sucks how WWE treats released talent

  • A.E

    diva dirt team PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE try interview with either gail or melina or both that would be nice.

  • darkangels

    i hope melina wrestles for luchalibreusa she wont have to leave to far from home it base out of NewMexico a great person to build a division around

  • Sitau

    this saddens me so much melina is the only reason i was so into wrestling i loved everything about her she will do so much better now that shes not being held back by wwe

  • Rhawk

    Not a tweeter, so no thanks. Besides if I wanted to tweet about Gail Kim, you’d tweet when WWE confirm her release, just to be safe. I won’t fall for the trap tha easily. ;-)

  • GlamazonInTraining89

    WOW…….that sucks…..i wonder if the wwe released Melina Because she was close 2 Breakin Trish’s Record she did have just as many titles as Mickie when she was fired….didn’t she? ANYWAY…BEST OF LUCK TO BOTH LADIES.

    • WWFoverWWE

      mickie won 6 titles (5 womens 1 divas)
      melina won 5 titles (3 womens 2 divas)

    • unscripted & flawless

      That was my LOL of the day. You do realize the WWE Women’s title doesn’t exist anymore, and Trish was never a Divas Champion, so there is no “record” to break.

  • Williambitious

    Thank you Melina for entertaining us in the WWE. Now it’s time for her to start a new chapter in her life. Good luck. As for Gail, I’ll support her in any move whether its joining TNA or starting a family.

  • art

    im pissed for gail…she was dogged for so f’ing long & she deserved the womens & diva titles more then any woman on the roster…

    • Raekon

      She held the womens championship in wwe before she left and went to tna though and I think once more after she returned too.

      • art

        went went 3 LONG years with next to none tv time…it pisses me off non wrestlers like kelly & maryse get the title when a talent like gail does nothing but turn up to the arenas or maybe once in awhile get a superstars match….

        • art

          Gail went not went went…

  • AmyR

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Damn! Well onward and upward!

  • Raekon

    Very very sad day for me.
    I’m shocked and saddened losing two great wrestlers.

    Unfortunately I’m not a tweeter so I can’t send things through it but I really really hope and wish with all my heart all the best in their life!

    I hope they will both get hired from TNA so we can at least enjoy them there for as long as possible. :)

    It’s also kinda weird that they both left at the same time. It looks as if they were “brewing” something together?

    At least I hope so. :)

  • katarinaw4ever

    wwe lost another 2 great female wrestlers.. thank you Gail and melina!

  • Kevin_G.

    this is crazy news! best of luck to both ladies, i hope this isn’t the last we see of them.

    on a side note: kelly kelly and eve or the only ‘face’ divas on raw

    • Kevin_G.


    • Kaledrina

      wouldn’t surprise me if naomi debuts next raw then, beth will need fodder

  • art

    lets hope cm punk has something to say about gail & maybe melina..since he wants wrestlers pushed then he should at least bring up gail…

  • Spike7000

    And then there were? 9 legit girls left :(

    Really? sad to see Melina and Gail go and the last thing that was needed is for Divas who can wrestle being released as we know Kharma/Kong is going to need more challengers

    I’m glad in a way Naomi Night, Sonia, Irena Janjic, and Tenille Tayla are waiting down at FCW

    I assume knowing WWE, they are going to be replaced by Sonia and Ivelisse from TE 5 when she gets signed just by knowing them they would do that

    Melina was with WWE since 2003 to now

    Gail Kim was the last one left from the old generation of WWE Divas and now that she’s gone the presence is no longer there. Gail was with WWE since 2002-November 2004 then would return on November 2008 and re-debut on March 09 to now

  • iLUVwrestlingValets

    I was a little dissappointed that Gail and Melina were released, but now i think it’s time for them to move on, Especially Gail. Gail is 34 years old and just got married, she most likely wants to take a step back and be a wife and eventually a mom, though Melina sounds like she want’s her job back, she’ll probably go to TNA once the 90 day clause is up cause honestly i dont think she want’s to do anything else but wrestle.

    And im not gonna front i skipped John Morrisons twitter speech.

  • JoshiTom

    WWE is ridiculous!! I don’t blame Gail for wanting to leave. She is brilliant and they were just wasting her talent. Melina didn’t seem happy there anyway. Confident both will thrive away from the E. Wouldn’t mind seeing either in WSU or SHIMMER. They both have lots of charisma and talent. Best of luck to both :)

  • bxradimus

    It’s not surprising at all about Gail. She hasn’t even been used really since she came back to WWE.

    • davepower

      They were never going to use her that was communicated from the outset

  • Matt

    It sounds like Gail built up a lot of anger and resentment towards WWE. It’s hard to miss the feeling of liberation in her tweets right now..

  • mikeparis18

    Gail seems trully happy. I’m sure she made good money and I’m hopeing for a big TNA return, especially with the whole Velvet situation (though I know theirs some kind of wait thing right?) Would love to see Melina go also and join Mexican America. Her promos would send them sky high and could make an interesting addition to Sarita and Rosita.
