Gail Kim is a 'Knockout'

Gail Kim made her wrestling debut as La Felina in December of 2000. For the next 2 years, she worked on the independent circuit in Canada, before making her WWE debut in 2003.
After about 2 years in the WWE during which she won the WWE Women's Championship once, Kim signed with TNA. Reportedly, Kim wanted to be in a company which emphasized and utilized her wrestling ability. Kim spent 3 years in TNA, winning the TNA Women's Knockout Championship once.
Kim has been out of wrestling since late 2008, when her contract with TNA expired. Rumors are circulating as to her future. Kim is a great worker and it would be a loss for TNA if she returns to the WWE, especially if it is a matter of money. Reportedly, TNA's contract offer to Kim was on the cheap side, because they over spent on some other aging stars.
Kim should be wrestling in one of the big 2. Actually, she should be headlining events. She's that good. Kim also has a passion and a respect for the history of wrestling. Plus, she is really very nice.
I have met Kim several times. She is always very outgoing and talkative. I have seen her go out of her way to make sure people get good pictures with her. I have even seen her volunteer to take pictures for others with other wrestlers.
