Source: SLAM! WrestlingSLAM! Wrestling has an interview with TNA Knockout Gail Kim, who was promoting this Friday's TNA live event in in Windsor, Ontario. Here are some highlights:
Women's wrestling in TNA vs. WWE: "(TNA) has really focused on women's wrestling in a different manner than WWE, and I just enjoy it more here. I've experienced both major promotions twice now, and I can honestly say that TNA is a better fit for me."
Working with rookies vs. veterans: "I love both aspects of it -- working with girls that have been doing it for ten years-plus like Mickie James and Tara, and with those who are looking forward towards the future. And I enjoy being able to help some of the more inexperienced girls that I can help -- I remember my first match back was a tag match with Brooke Tessmacher; she didn't really know that much in the ring back then, but she has come so far in the past year."
Favorite moments of her career: "Nights like winning the first Knockouts Championship is one of them. But if you think about the whole picture, the thing that makes me most proud is fighting for that women's division and it actually happening. It wasn't overnight, it took a lot of begging and pleading to wrestle. For that to happen, and for it to become successful, that was a dream come true."
Gail also discussed being named by Pro Wrestling Illustrated magazine as the best woman wrestler of the year, her husband's (celebrity chef Robert Irvine) reaction to being at a TNA event, her return to TNA and much more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
