Gail Kim on tonight’s Bound for Glory PPV, issues surrounding TNA, more

Gail Kim recently spoke with USA Today to promote Sunday’s TNA Bound for Glory PPV event. During the interview, Kim hyped the event as it is the biggest TNA pay-per-view event of the year.

“It’s our biggest pay-per-view of the year, and we always give our all. Bound for Glory just has a special feeling about it. Start with our main event with Bobby Lashley, our world champion, (against EC3). For me, Bobby Lashley has improved by leaps and bounds and he’s carrying this company on his shoulder. After eight months, it will finally be Maria and I. And of course, the Hall of Fame, which is special. Even if you’re not a wrestling fan, the company just recently crossed over into this area where you can get different things like Final Deletion (with the Hardys), which is entertaining in and of itself, and other storylines. Everything has led up to this big moment, Oct. 2, we’re not going to disappoint. We never do.”

It’s well known that there are issues surrounding TNA right now. Kim explained that the talent within the company never knew what was going on but did hear the rumors about the future of the promotion.

“I think change is always scary but also always good. We were at a point where the talent never really knew everything that was going on and you hear rumors, but as of the last (TV) tapings, we had a clearer direction. The roster — whoever was there and no matter how many changes — has always been a family. Whether morale was high or low, you had to put in the work and nobody gave less than 100%. That’s never changed from the first day to now.”

With WWE no longer calling their women talent “Divas,” Kim was asked if TNA should change the name “Knockouts” when referring to the women’s division. Kim is a fan of the name and doesn’t think that TNA should change the name.

“I feel like it’s great and I don’t think we need to change it. I could see where people don’t like diva because the idea that it comes with a certain attitude so I can understand why the WWE did that. I do hope for the WWE’s sake, that means the genders will be equal. But for us, I feel like the girls should still have a name and be special. I feel like it’s established and people know us as the Knockouts.”
