Earlier this year, Gail Kim noted that this would be her last year as an in-ring competitor. It looks like Bound For Glory will be her last match. She will be one of the participants in a Four-Way match for the Impact World Championship that also features champion Sienna, Taryn Terrell, and Allie.
In a clip posted on YouTube, Gail talked about her desire to finish her career on her own terms:
“I wanted to come back because if you ask any wrestler, we all wanna finish on our own terms. That’s what I want. I want to close this door myself. I just worked so hard to get to this point. I just really wanted to end it on my point. What I missed most about being away was just being in the mix, the fans, being in front of the fans [and] the adrenaline that you get from just the performing [and] just pushing yourself to the limit. That’s what I miss the most.”
Here is a clip from the July 13th episode of Impact Wrestling where she talked about her retirement plans. Kim had been dealing with an injury that forced her to take time off for several months. Hopefully, this retirement means that a WWE Hall Of Fame induction is in her future.
This year’s Bound For Glory will take place at the Aberdeen Pavilion in Ottawa, Canada on November 5th. The show will air live on pay-per-view.
