Gail Kim Comments on Impact Considering Plans to Hold Event in the UK in the Future
A recent episode of the Women’s Wrestling Talk podcast featured Gail Kim as the guest. One of the topics discussed included Kim revealing that Impact Wrestling has had recent talks regarding the idea of holding more international events in the future with the United Kingdom as a likely destination.
“I mean, we are talking about doing them more internationally. That’s basically the next step that we would love to go because we used to go to the U.K. and do some tours and were talking about that before COVID and then when COVID hit, it really shut things down. It felt like just rebuilding all over again but I feel like now, we’re in the swing of things and these shows are being planned and yeah, hopefully we’ll get to see some more special shows in terms of maybe some joint ventures again, you never know. All-women’s pay-per-views and hopefully some international tours, because we’ve got some incredible U.K. fans over there and we never get to see them anymore so, love to see them.”
