After announcing her retirement from the ring last year, Gail Kim wrestled the final match of her career on Saturday in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, England In the main event of Southside Wrestling’s ‘Raw Deal’ where she defeated Kasey Owens.
Gail officially announced her retirement on the July 6th episode of Impact Wrestling, to happen at the end of 2017. At Bound For Glory 2017, she won her seventh Knockouts Championship in a Triple Threat match, defeating Sienna and Allie for the title and on the following episode of IMPACT, formally announced her retirement from professional wrestling and vacated the title in the process, ending her in-ring career with IMPACT Wrestling. She, however, still is with the company in a creative role for the Knockouts Division.
Last note of the night. My dream was to retire in the UK and thanks to @swe_southsidewe for allowing me the privilege to do it for you. Always professional, respectful, caring and thoughtful. Tonight was the icing on the cake for my career and I’ll always be eternally grateful that I could walk away from the ring on such a spectacular note. Tonight was emotional and special and it was all thanks to them and the most loyal fans I’ve ever had. Nothing can beat tonight so I THANK YOU!! ❤️❤️❤️
