Sources inside TNA have said this came as a pretty big surprise and although most people knew they were renegotiating her contract, they assumed she would definitely resign with the company. As of the last television tapings last week, there were no farewell parties and she wasn’t saying “Goodbye” to anyone in the back. One source said that Gail “wanted guarantees TNA was not willing to give”.
On the WWE front, they have apparently changed the trademark on Kim from inactive to active. PWInsider.com is reporting that they offered her a sizable increase in pay to come back. She is free to begin working there as soon as her contract is officially up and you can bet that if she does in fact return, she’ll be pushed pretty heavily in the women’s division.
Other sources have said that Kim left TNA on very good terms and the door is “always open” for a return in the future. This was more due to financial reasons than Gail being unhappy with the company and the way she’s been used or presented on TNA television.
Kim’s last TNA match is scheduled for tonight’s Impact! in a street fight with Awesome Kong.
