Has Gail Kim Left TNA? Updated Raw Card For MSG This Saturday

Nick Paglino


WWE has changed the line-up for this Saturday’s Raw brand house show at Madison Square Garden once again. The scheduled John Cena vs. Batista match has been removed. Instead, Cena will be wrestling Chris Jericho and Batista will be taking on Kane. Other matches scheduled for the show include CM Punk vs JBL in a steel cage match, Santino Marella vs. Kofi Kingston for the Intercontinental Championship, Ted DiBiase & Cody Rhodes vs. Cryme Tyme in a World Tag Team Championship match, and Mickie James vs. Beth Phoenix in a WWE Women’s Championship match. William Regal, D’Lo Brown, Snitsky and Kelly Kelly are also advertised to appear.

Oddly enough, Gail Kim’s profile has been discreetly removed from the TNA website. When you click her profile page, you get the standard “You are not authorized to view this resource” page, which is what happens to the profile pages after a wrestler parts ways with TNA. Now of course this all could have been done in error, however all of her Knockouts photos have been removed as well. When you go to the Knockouts photo section, Gail’s page is nowhere to be found. TNA rarely announces company departures on the website, and in fact, the only “future endeavors” notes they have announced over the past year were done to further angles involving Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian so they could be written off of television. It was announced on September 6, 2006 that Gail Kim had a signed a contract with TNA. If by chance her contract were to expire, it would probably be around this time. Team 3D signed three-year deals during this time frame, so perhaps she had the same contract length as well. Talent rarely get four-year deals, five-year deals are usually long, and we never heard anything about Gail renewing her contract on a year-to-year basis, so her original contract was likely a three-year deal. Gail is scheduled to wrestle Awesome Kong in a Street Fight on tomorrow night’s iMPACT!, which was taped last Wednesday. She is still named in the preview that is up on the site. Although this is more than likely an accident, as Gail has been reportedly happy in TNA since her arrival, we will continue to investigate this story and post any details if they become available.
