Gail Kim leaves behind an 18-year career that began in 2000. In 2003, she became the first woman in WWE history to win the women’s championship on her debut day, it was in a real battle held on the 30th June on Monday Night Raw. Her career changed when she was hired by TNA (Impact Wrestling today). She is considered the true pioneer in the women’s revolution in the world of wrestling due to her great battles for the Knockouts championship against Awesome Kong and other fighters.
In 2017, Gail Kim confirmed that it will be her last year as a competitor, promising that she will wait until Impact Wrestling’s Bound For Glory to make her departure effective. In November, Kim officially retired as a fighter in Impact Wrestling and has vacated the Knockouts championship.
