Gail Kim: “I wasn’t gonna be held down anymore”



Gail Kim via Twitter:

I did for 5 yrs. My hard work wasn’t paying off. Imagine u working a job where ur talents and work weren’t recognized. I wasn’t gonna be held down anymore as most wouldn’t be. If u did then u r short selling urself. I waited long enough.

    Amen sister! Gail is one of the best women wrestlers in the history of this sport. Why she hasn’t been used on television by WWE is beyond me. She has the looks and she has the in ring ability, something sorely lacking in most of their Divas.

  2. Bob Holly says:

    if she hadnt been so incredibly sloppy maybe she would reach the heights her deranged mind thinks she deserves. you could end all womens wrestling tonight and not one ticket sale would be lost. its a pointless “division”.

  3. JD Storm says:

    it’s amazing that she was able to get great matches in TNA. in WWE, most of the women were so awful that she couldn’t get a decent match.

  4. Jose says:

    It’s not that she was sloppy, it’s just that most of the other Divas CAN’T WRESTLE.

  5. James says:

    I find it hard to believe that she didn’t see this happening when she came back to WWE.

  6. -Jay- says:

    It’s not that the WWE women performers couldn’t wrestle so much as it’s about the “creative” idiots not being able to generate ideas of how to incorporate a Gail Kim into a diva storytelling that doesn’t involve simply flipping the hair, calling someone fat, cheerleader flips and ass shaking.

    Hopefully the direction is changing with Beth and Nat actually working the anti model angle. I wish this Gail Kim weekly rant was a work and she’d join in with the anti-diva movement as well…repackage her as a heel but whatever.

  7. Sparky says:

    They really needed to keep up with that Bryan/Kim love angle…

  8. mshelez says:

    WWE isn’t just wrestling. It’s sports ENTERTAINMENT. Gail Kim is not entertaining.

  9. Captain Ass says:

    No matter what WWE wants to call it, it’s WRESTLING. Gail was clearly not used well at all and deserves better.

  10. love_synthesizer@hotmail.com says:

    She is not really good, very sloppy in the ring, lawls!

  11. Bob Holly says:

    very good points by all of you, my post might have been a little harsh on her because yes it does take two people to pull of a good match. but i still stand by how worthless and boring womens wrestling is. its just an extra commercial break for me which means time to get a drink, go to the restroom or fast forward.

  12. fess says:

    like she really thought wwe would use her properly? says alot about her IQ…. since TNA only pays the girls a few hundred dollars a show, i doubht she will be happy there either, probably best to chill at home and become a housewife

  13. Cenaplsgoaway says:

    They simply need to drop this ‘Girls V girls and Boys V Boys’ bollocks.

    It would open up the Diva storylines and create a bit more buzz. It would be good for Beth Phoenix for instance, to start picking on one of the male wrestlers, or beat Mark Henry or something.

    As it stands Divas is just an interlude to get little boys making little trouser tents. Zero storyline, zero interest for fans. Zero point.

    It was better before Diva, when women wrestled for the championship imo.

    TNA does the womens div MUCH better, though its still not great.

    Anyway, I think there are massive changes coming across the board in WWE, and its going to start at Summerslam.

    Maybe Kelly Kelly will blade in the match V the Glamazon. If the match itself is good, this would instantly endear her (further) to many.

  14. Justin Myers says:

    thats what ya get for leaving TNA Gail

  15. Jim says:

    @Bob Holly: I agree 100%. She was really sloppy, and showed she really didn’t care after awhile, so why should they have cared about her? They cared enough to give her the Women’s Championship in her debut match. The more she goes on about not being used right, the more I can’t wait for her to be gone, and never come back.

  16. jon says:

    Simple FACT: IN TNA, she was over, the crowd popped for her. Although she was doing that in front of 800 people. In WWE, well, they get 10,000 out. She wasn’t over with the masses, didnt really get a pop at all. What it comes down too is in WWE, you need to be able to appeal to the masses..Gail didn’t. WWE gave her the ball a couple times and quite frankly she dropped it. Sometimes, you gotta make chicken salad out of chicken crap..SHE DIDN’T.

    I don’t feel sorry for her.. 5 years of “not being used” GAIL? 5 years of pretty decent pay checks too.

  17. Danny says:

    “Imagine u working a job where ur talents and work weren’t recognized.”

    Yeah. Imagine that!

    I think that would be any of us that work a ‘regular’ 9 to 5 job. I guess now you might find that out, Gail. Sorry about your luck.

  18. Maybe, just maybe, if she had taken some lessons from Kelly2, she would have obtained great heights.

  19. Nick says:

    By “lessons” Eastport, do you mean date on the roster?

  20. Kyle Christie says:

    Well she was never released on wwe.com could be a work come back and help Beth at SummerSlam but if not she could be in the Divas Of Doom but oh well

  21. Craig says:

    @Kyle: hmm.. Gail Kim=”C.M Punk of women’s division”? …think about it.

  22. Craig says:

    @bob holly: Can’t you, for once, just tell us how you REALLY feel about the divas (or is it women in general..) and quit holding back son!

    I mean, i think it’s 2011 and
    IMHO feel they should all have equal rights and opportunities and given the same treatment and respect in every arena of life especially where it concerns working their ass off/ wrestling and for a lower cut salary (5-6 million) than those less deserving yet sell tickets (the highest paid one being 10-15 million..guess who) just to pay the bills and make a living for themselves! not to mention the ones with genuine love and passion and knowledge for what they do, and who always give 210% each time they do it and only expect at least half back in return for their tireless efforts! so i believe, in the “wrestling universe”, there is absolutely a point of having such a “division”, particularly for “wrestlers” who can “wrestle” just as well, if not better than some of the others who get more opportunities and who are treated far better regardless of their abilities (or lack there of). …because they sell more t-shirts.
    Gail Kim, a female, scorned, who did her job-and quite well, again IMHO- yet is not included that category, she has a mind and is speaking it. she dares to believe in herself and what is true.. i on the other hand, am a male, i also believe truth
    .and i’m a big fan of justice.. (and yes Gail Kim. if that part wasn’t obvious to you by now..) and females..! what say you mr. holly?

    p.s sorry to waste a double post-on this clown :(

    pps: I like wrestling..too.
