Gail Kim Discusses Eliminating Herself In A Raw Divas’ Battle Royal, When She Decided To Be A Wrestler, More

Gail Kim was recently interviewed by Schema Magazine and discussed a number of topics, from her experiences as a Korean-Canadian female wrestler to her departure to WWE and more. When asked about when she knew she wanted to be a professional wrestler, she responded:

“I knew when I was 23. I knew when I was so hooked on watching wrestling and I saw the likes of Trish Stratus, Victoria, Molly, Jazz etc. What they now call the golden era of women’s wrestling. I watched them and thought, ‘Hey! I can do that! I also thought, there are no Asian women. I can be that person.’”

When asked why she thought she wasn’t featured enough in WWE, which led to her eliminating herself in a Divas’ battle royal, she responded:

“I’ve talked about this many times up to this point, which I don’t mind but I think the fans and myself have moved on from this topic. To clarify, that was not the reason why, there were many reasons why including some disrespectful situations and the way women were treated; so I decided to move on. I did, and I’m happier than ever and I will never know reasons why so I choose not to worry about that anymore. I can only look forward and try to do positive things from now on. Impact Wrestling has been home for me and it’s just been a confidence building, pro female wrestling environment. I feel like I don’t have to limit myself anymore.”

    Can’t Gail have an interview with original questions anymore?

  • Bryan

    Can the press ask ANY other questions than that self-elimination on RAW? Haven't they beat this to death enough already?

  • Matt Scott

    I got myself into a bit of an arguement with Gail over this on Twitter, and not afraid to say she owned me/dirt sheets. I mentioned she was going on about the WWE to much and she seemed very pissed off with the subject, an this was just after her redebut in TNA!

  • PikaPal4ever

    Gail deserved a lot more than what she got in WWE. She is easily the best women's wrestler on TNA or WWE and it's not even close. At least in TNA, Gail gets to showcase her talents and have 15 minute matches that are very good. Do you think Vince would give her that freedom? Absolutely not! Keep up the good work in TNA Gail!

    We know, Gail. U been underused by WWE in favor of Kelly2 and Eve (a lotta good that's doin them now) and in turn ya said screw it and took urself outta that last match b4 flyin in to TNA the following week. More power to ya and your championship reign over there. That said, can we PLEEEEZE let this go??!!! It's probly the only thing we're all interested in at this point, like "How does it feel to live/ work/deal with ___________". You know what I mean?
