Gail Kim On Battle Royal Controversy – Says She’s Not Trying To Get Fired

Amidst the chaos of the opening moments of the No. 1 Contender’s Diva Battle Royal on Monday’s Raw, Gail Kim eliminated herself from the contest by hastily sliding under the bottom rope after striking Alicia Fox.

The WWE Diva was asked through Twitter to comment on her peculiar action; she admitted to leaving the match on purpose. Her reason behind the move was that she “was just checking to see if anyone was paying attention.” She added that no one backstage noticed, calling it “sad,” yet also “very amusing.”

She added further comment this morning to defend her actions, writing: “oh and also on the contrary, I wasn’t being a mark 4 myself I was being a good employee when ur told to get out of the ring in less than a min.I just did it the fastest way possible:)so really I saved some time!”

The former TNA Women’s Knockout Champion also concurred with a follower stating that it’s shame that WWE doesn’t respect “true women wrestlers with talent.” She responded, “Yes it is a shame I agree. I know it’s a man’s world but the women are just as important!”

Kim denied speculation this afternoon that she’s trying to get fired by WWE.

She wrote, “Nooooo I’m not doing my best to get fired. Wrestling websites who like to make up news with their wild imagination…haha don’t believe it.”

    I guess I’m considered “sad” in the eyes of Gail Kim, because I didn’t even notice! All kidding aside, they should send her over to SD. I always say that if you’re not being used properly on Raw, you’ll do good on Smackdown. Edge is a great example of that. What about Del Rio? What has he really done on Raw besides winning MITB? Gail could be top face on SD.

  • Starship Pain

    Well, she want to be GK Punk or what?

  • poko

    She needs to get out of the WWE ASAP. She’s been in some of the hands-down best female wrestling matches I’ve ever seen, and she should be somewhere that will use her talents. That the women with actual skill are only being used to make the spokes-models look a bit less horrible breaks my heart. Many of her matches in TNA were way better than most of the matches you see on the men’s side of either TNA or WWE.

  • Karl

    If she honestly isn’t trying to get fired, then someone needs to give her career advice.

  • Jon

    It sad, Gail was good the first time she came to the WWE and then to TNA. But now she getting bury by worthless talneted divas.

  • Sean Mooney

    Just re-watched it on YouTube, that was pretty bad… don’t think management would care enough to fire her because of that, I think they’re planning to anyway though.

  • rocky sucks

    beth is dating cm punk,michelle hooked up with taker. kelly kelly gave half or the roster “her flower”.so gail should do the math. sad but true

  • nick

    cm punk’s era- fuck the company, do for urself

  • lazlo woodbine


    All her best work was with TNA, at that point the Knockouts belt was probably the top women’s title in North America, at this point it’s as worthless as either of the WWE women’s championships.

  • scooter

    turn her heel give her the belt have her feud with Aj (never happen)

  • CM Mark

    I see a best of luck in all your endeavores in her future.

  • Shaun

    Damn sure seemed like she is trying to get fire, I mean making it painfully obvious just eliminating yourself from the match? Weird.

  • Tom… Just Tom

    WWE doesn’t use her at all. With the recent heel turns of both Beth and Natalya, maybe it is the start of a feud with all of these models turned WWE divas versus those Divas who trained to be wrestlers first.

  • CC

    I laughed at the “Former TNA knockouts champion” line seeing as she was a WWE womens champion long before she captured that half arsed companies championship.

  • jason

    yes she is frank

  • Dave

    would be a cool idea though that makes sense as an echo of what punk is doing: the diva’s that actually can wrestle forming a stable to ‘take down the bland and stale no talented airheads’.

  • GailSucks

    Well she isn’t a true woman’s wrestler with talent, so she shouldn’t be upset. She’s just not entertaining to watch, or that nice of a person out of the ring. Its obvious she wants to get fired. I’d laugh if she got fired, all along thinking she can go back to TNA, and they don’t take her. Then she’s gotta go back to Toronto and find a real job…heaven forbid.

    maybe she will turn heel with beth and natalya!

    Oh dear god what a horrible thought as then we would have the only 4 that can wrestle worth a damn as heels and the air heads as faces, how exciting would those matches be.

  • marcum

    maybe she will turn heel with beth and natalya!

  • Stumpy

    @ Venom – I agree. Only Punk is allowed to break the wall down… the fourth wall that is.

  • Frank

    She is also very sexy!!

  • venom

    Putting business out there will get you fired.

  • Frank

    ^ I agree! I wish wwe would give her a decent push! She is one of the most talented wrestlers on their roster.

  • Jason

    Gail should have won that match then gone on to win the title.
