This week on “Busted Open Radio” Gail Kim said she will not be returning to the ring.
“I feel good. When I’m producing and I’m around the ring, and I start to get a little bit physical, I say, ‘Oh Gail, you’re getting that itch,” she said.
“I do miss it. Of course I miss it, but my body is a constant reminder.”
“It’s not even just that. There are just so many factors for me to come out of retirement and do that again. It’s like, ‘OK, do I want my back to get worse. Do I want to take that chance of making it where I do need the back surgery?’ My memory has gotten a little bit worse throughout the whole 15 or 20 years. So I’m like, ‘Do I really want to make my memory worse?’”
“Who knows what can happen. I was very satisfied with my end match and the way that it happened. How many people can just close that door and just be happy with that? That’s a very rare thing, so for me, am I willing to mess that up no matter how much I miss it? I get satisfaction from being backstage and helping.”
