Impact Wrestling’s Gail Kim spoke with Kevin Eck of Pressbox Online and spoke about the back injury that has her sidelined. “My back was injured just basically from wear and tear over the years,” Kim said. “Luckily, Impact has been so good to me in terms of letting me take time off to make sure I’m healthy and never making me feel bad about it. I’ve been ready to come back for a little while but [Impact Wrestling] has had some time off because we film a bunch of shows once a month or once every other month, so that’s the only reason why I haven’t been back in the ring, but I’m going to be back shortly.”
Kim was also asked whether she is under contract to the company. “Technically, no, but I have a contract in hand,” Kim said. “I won’t ever go anywhere else. That’s my family.” Read the full interview at PressBoxOnline.com.
Powell’s POV: WWE didn’t do right by Kim from a creative standpoint in her previous runs, so sticking with Impact is a logical move for her. For that matter, the Impact schedule is likely more appealing to her than a full-time run in WWE. Kim also spoke about being the veteran of the women’s locker room, retirement, why she feels people have been hard on Impact, the improvement of the WWE women’s division, and her marriage to celebrity chef Robert Irvine.
