Gail Kim has two archenemies in Impact’s top 5 heated Knockouts rivalries

One of Impact Wrestling’s bright spots has always been their Knockouts Division. Travel back with Impact to see their top 5 most heated Knockouts rivalries. Gail Kim was a long-time anchor for the promotion as evidenced by earning a spot twice on the list.

5. Madison Rayne vs Mickie James
4. Gail Kim vs Taryn Terrell
3. Rosemary vs Su Yung
2. Tessa Blanchard vs Taya Valkyrie
1. Gail Kim vs Awesome Kong

Kim vs Kong is a very fitting choice for the top spot. They put the division on the map. Kim was the inaugural Knockouts Champion in 2007. She lost the belt 85 days later to Kong. Kim rebounded to become a 7-time Knockouts title holder. She retained six times against Kong over the years.

Tessa vs Taya is another feud that carried the Knockouts. This time in more recent years. It even crossed borders to AAA in Mexico as Taya took the Reinas de Reinas belt off Tessa. The success of this feud for Tessa catapulted her into position to win the Impact World Championship.

Celebrate this list by checking out Knockouts merch from Impact. All merch is on 20% off sale during Memorial Day weekend.
