To conclude the IMPACT 1,000 episode which aired on Sept. 21, Gail Kim came out of retirement for one more match. She teamed with Awesome Kong, Jordynne Grace, Mickie James, and the Knockouts World Champion Trinity. They were victorious against Tasha Steelz, Gisele Shaw, Savannah Evans, Deonna Purrazzo, and Angelina Love.
During the match there was a hard fall by Kim off the ring apron when Velvet Sky got involved. Before the match aired, Kim stated she was rattled but was okay. She now confirms she did suffer a concussion.
On her Instagram, the Hall of Famer posted the following –
“Professional Wrestling is a career we all enter knowing the risks we take when we perform for the fans. Shit happens. It’s not my first concussion and perhaps not my last.”
She also says she does not condone any bullying or attacking behavior to Velvet or anyone else in the clip. Adding to that, she felt she needed to show this video for educational purposes.
