Gail Kim Explains Why Awesome Kong Was Her Favorite Opponent

Impact Wrestling legend Gail Kim recently spoke to Wrestling Epicenter's Interactive Wrestling Radio. You can check out the full interview at this link, and highlights below.

Awesome Kong being one of her favorite opponents:
"Yes! Even back then when I was invincible, I felt like I got hit by a truck! I told her this straight to her face, "I"m pretty sure you took a couple of years off my career but I would never take back one moment, one second, one bump from what we created." To this day, to have people come up to me and say, "I loved your stuff with Kong!" To have that mentioned and not stuff on other platforms such as WWE mentioned, that means so much to us. We did create magic! We're so proud of that time and TNA, at that time, gave us that ball, that opportunity to do something different. At that time, women's wrestling was basically dead. And, at that time, women's wrestling had not seen a character like Awesome Kong. Everything, everything that comes along with that. The first time that I wrestled her is the first time that I saw her work. And, let me just tell you, I was terrified! (laughs) It turned out to be great. To this day, we are special friends and have a special relationship because of that."
