Wrestling News World writer Rick Craig sent in the following:
In her first free interview since parting ways with WWE, Gail Kim told SunSport that she has no plans on returning to the sports entertainment empire. Kim was quoted as saying:
“I’ve experienced WWE twice now, and I know that I do not enjoy that place. The second time I really had optimistic hopes and dreams, but I know I would never go back there.”Kim informed John Laurinaitis that she was quitting the company ten minutes before the infamous battle royal in which she eliminated herself from the match. Kim had the following to say about the controversy:
“It was a very controversial thing. A lot of people said that they lost respect for me because I was unprofessional. But unless anyone walks in your shoes they do not what you feel. I can admit that maybe it was a childish thing to do. But I would not take it back. I was disrespected many times by the company, and when you get disrespected that many times there is only so much you can take. I’m not one to just lay there and take it – at least not now – and they didn’t even notice. I was fed up that day.
Kim also responded to speculation about returning to TNA:
“Right now I’m on a little hiatus. I told myself I’d take a little break. They didn’t let me quit so I was forced to take a break! I’m not retiring from wrestling, I can say that. I always said – I said it in my last interview with TNA on a Knockout’s DVD – that I always felt like I would return there one day. I’d love to finish up my career there.”
