Gail Kim Says Taryn Terrell Wants to Return, Talks Importance to Getting in WWE
In the weekly Impact Teleconference, Gail Kim discussed her work producing for Impact, the Knockouts Division and more.
On Taryn Terrell wanting to return: “She is not wrestling, she is doing stunt work but I know she wants to come back to wrestling. She does miss it, just like everyone else that enters this business, I think. I always tell everyone wrestling is like the mafia, once you get in, you can’t get out.”
On others who she’s scouting: “There’s a couple of girls, I guess, but I almost don’t want to say it because WWE signs everyone – is snatching up everyone, and making slim pickings for everyone. I just heard that Viper just got signed. I don’t know if that’s a rumor or not, I don’t know if it’s been made in an announcement, but I loved Viper in the UK. There’s a girl named Cassie Blackheart here in the indies that we used once, but then she got injured straight after that. I see a lot of potential in her. There’s a girl in Mexico, Keeda, that I really like. Like I said, it seems like now everyone is kinda getting scooped up and I just want more of a pool to pick from. If there are good girls internationally, let me know. I think all the Japanese girls are pretty much taken, it seems like.”
On the possibility of Knockouts Tag Team Championships returning: “At the moment, the state of the Knockouts, I feel like they don’t necessarily need the tag team titles right now because the story is interesting enough. But I have seen a lot more tweets about that since WWE has introduced the tag team titles to their women’s division, but they do have a lot more girls than us, so i think that if we added some more girls, I think that could maybe be a discussion that could come up.”
On the importance of getting to WWE: “Despite my experiences there, I always tell every wrestler, you need to experience it if you have not. You do have to give your life to them. They literally want you to eat, breath, sleep it, so I think it’s great for people who are entering the business and maybe in the prime of their career. But I always try to remind people who have been there a long time that I still speak to, that sometimes, they forget there’s a real world out there. Because you live in this bubble and you’re constantly on the road, and when you come home you’re so exhausted and you have to get your errands done in a day, and then you’re back on the road, so it’s very hard. I give it to them for sticking to that schedule.”
