Gail Kim has discussed the excitement she gets from agenting rather than wrestling matches for IMPACT Wrestling.
Speaking on Busted Open Radio, the former 7-times TNA Knockouts Champion spoke about her current role in the company. Kim said that she tries to give the wrestlers in the company more than just advice inside the ring.
“I try to give a little bit of both [life and wrestling advice], if I can or if they’re comfortable with that. I am always there for them no matter what. Wrestling-wise, I think all of them know my personality now. I am very direct, I don’t like to beat around the bush, and we don’t have time to waste. I think they know that when I come at them in a very direct way, I’m just trying to help them.”
The IMPACT Wrestling Hall Of Famer then discussed working with the women in the company. Gail Kim explained that her interest lay primarily in the Knockouts division that she helped build.
“I’m very hands-on with the women. I have agented some of the guys’ matches, too, here and there, and I, of course, love producing and passing on knowledge in any way for male or female [talent], but my heart is with the women, I can’t lie about that. I’m very invested in that division, it’s like my baby in a lot of ways and when they knock it out of the park, my adrenaline is just as high as theirs is and I’m just so grateful that I get that feeling just watching them wrestle and accomplishing what we try to do together. It’s a great feeling that I can get it. I think if I wasn’t getting that feeling, I would probably be back in the ring because I would miss it too much.”
Gail Kim wrestled her last match at IMPACT Wrestling’s Rebellion event in 2019. She would lose that match to future IMPACT World Champion Tessa Blanchard.
