Former WWE Superstar and Impact Knockout Gail Kim wrestled her final match this Saturday, main eventing Southside Wrestling’s “Raw Deal 7” event in Hertfordshire, England.

Kim, age 40, announced in July 2017 that she would be retiring from professional wrestling after 18 years in the business, with her final televised match taking place at the 2017 Impact Wrestling Bound For Glory pay-per-view.

Like many born in/around Toronto she was trained by “Pretty Boy” Ron Hutchison, who has also been credited in the development of names like Edge, Christian, Beth Phoenix and Trish Stratus. She was signed to a WWE deal in 2002 after being connected by Molly Holly and worked with most, if not all of the greatest names of that era.

Despite multiple runs with WWE and even winning the WWE Women’s Championship, Gail is perhaps best known for her work in TNA Wrestling. She debuted with the promotion in 2005 working off and on for two years until becoming a key figure in TNA’s decision to take women’s wrestling seriously. Her matches with Awesome Kong became famous in the industry as the new golden standard for North American women’s wrestling, at a time where the WWE Divas were barely allowed to work on television.
