Before Gail Kim could leave, Kong brought her back in the ring, grabbed the mic and addressed her longtime rival. Kong said that it has been a tough year at her house and the only thing that would get her off the couch and at tonight's event was Gail. She then revealed that if she is going to go out, she wanted to do it with the toughest foe she knew. She followed that up with "I'm done." The segment concluded with Kong telling Gail that she loves her before they hugged.

After a nearly two-decade career, Awesome Kong has seemingly retired from professional wrestling.
