It was NZPWI’s privilege on Wednesday to speak to Gail Kim. Gail is one of the few women in wrestling whose ability and skill have elevated her well past the “Diva” status so common among women in top-level wrestling today.
Debuting in the Apocalypse Wrestling Federationin 2000, Gail’s first matches were as masked luchadore, La Felina. By 2003, Gail had come to the attention of World Wrestling Entertainment,Â capturing the WWE Women’s Championship during her debut match on RAW.
Gail was released from WWE along with other talented women in 2004, a move that shocked and dismayed fans who had enjoyed seeing women actually wrestling and showcasing their athletic ability.
Signing with Total Non-stop Action (TNA) in October 2005, and debutingÂ as Jeff Jarrett’s manager, Gail has once again been given the opportunity to display her considerable athletic and wrestling ability. Taking on the likes of Jackie Moore, Sirelda, and even working in mixed tag team matches with Petey Williams and AMW, Gail continues to demonstrate the skill and versatility that have made her one of the top women in the business today.
Gail took time out of her busy schedule to speak with NZPWI’s Kirsty Quested about WWE, TNA, Vince Russo, her ambitions outside of wrestling and much more!Â Â
