WWE Diva Mocks WWE Creative On Twitter

Gail KimI can understand the frustrations a WWE superstar may have these days with the creative team. Yet complaining about it on Twitter probably isn’t the best idea as Matt Hardy can attest to. WWE Diva Gail Kim hasn’t received that memo.

Gail Kim is certainly rewarding her loyal 39,000 followers on Twitter with some good tweets lately. Two weeks ago she whined about Melina being a “bad friend” and now she is complaining about WWE creative. Let’s just say that Ms. Kim is not a happy Diva these days.

Sometimes I don’t realize how long I haven’t been on RAW bc I still wrestle on superstars…which I love bc I get to WRESTLE for longer than 3 min and actually have singles matches! Hopefully soon…:)))@gailkimITSME

[adinserter block=”2″]I came across her vents after someone retweeted one of her recent tweets to Trish Stratus about their matches.

It all started when Gail responded to the outpouring of high praise she got for her match with Beth Phoenix on WWE Superstars, which was a really fun match.

Thank u! The response of our match has been unbelievable and it was TRULY a dream come true. Imagine if we were given a storyline or some more time behind it! Sigh….- @gailkimITSME

Next, someone tweeted a message to former WWE champion Trish Stratus about Beth and Kim’s match. Trish retweeted with a nice comment.

They already do! #respect RT @GKInteractive @gailkimITSME & @TheBethPhoenix would blow the roof off if given more time & storyline@trishstratuscom

Gail chimed in two hours later.

@trishstratuscom I would love to go back to what we had back in those yrs! Those were like ironwoman matches back then compared to now lol@gailkimITSME

I can appreciate the honesty but ouch! That can be taken as a little bit of a backhanded shot at the current crew of WWE Divas. They were good matches but let’s not get crazy. Additionally when Kim came in and feuded with Trish Stratus, it was right about that time they started cutting back the time on the Divas on RAW so it really wasn’t that much different then. Additionally, I didn’t have any of their matches even ranked in a blog I wrote about the Top Five Best Trish Stratus Matches.

She continued her subtle yet fairly obvious tweeting about discontent with WWE creative.

A fan called Gail out on her complaining and flat out asked her. @gailkimITSME instead of bitching; why don’t you leave? People could perceive your tweets a bad attitude?@TheSamGallagher

To Gail’s credit she responded to the fan. I say to her credit, because she certainly could have ignored the negative tweets because I am sure plenty of WWE stars get them.

@TheSamGallagher oh thats not #!@%*#ing lol just the truth 🙂 and I don’t live my life based on what people perceive. Can’t please every1 all the time – @gailkimITSME

Between retweets and followers, some in the wrestling media started picking up on her tweets and commented about her anti-WWE remarks. Gail didn’t seem to worried about it.

@kevin_hamilton8 omg people have no life when they take tweets and make a mountain out of a molehill…what else shall I say to make some NEWS?? Lol!@gailkimITSME

I always love when someone says something on Twitter, a blogger picks up on it, and all of the sudden the blogger is the one causing trouble. Don’t tweet what you don’t want people to see!

Here is the deal. Gail Kim left the WWE, went to TNA Wrestling, and had plenty of time to wrestle longer matches down south for three years. Kim was the face of the TNA Knockouts division and had a memorable series of matches against Awesome Kong. Kim was a free agent two years ago and had offers from both the WWE and TNA. She chose to go to the WWE. She already worked there were no surprises in going from one to the other. Get over it!

I just absolutely hate when I see WWE superstars complain about match time or face time. There are thousands of independent professional wrestlers out there who are struggling to pay their bills (and at least one TNA Wrestler) and would swap places with her in a second.

If she is that unhappy cash out and go home. It is a little insulting in today’s economy to get on Twitter and whine about “match time” when thousands of fans and independent wrestlers have much bigger problems. I am sure there are plenty of female wrestlers out there that would be happy to take her spot if she is unhappy.

[adinserter block=”1″]Here is a newsflash. Gail Kim is a 34-year old professional wrestler who gets to travel around the world, make good money, and put her body through very little abuse to do it. Gail Kim’s days are numbered at her age and that isn’t a hateful statement, it is just the way that the WWE sees their Divas.

I don’t necessarily agree with this but unless she is a superstar WWE Diva like Trish Stratus, Rena Mero, or even Tammy Sytch, I don’t see the WWE keeping her around past her 36th birthday. So instead of complaining to the people who think you are living your dream, give it a rest or just go home for good and wrestle as many long matches as you want on the independents.

It is also completely asinine when a fringe WWE superstar speaks out through social media and starts complaining about the people responsible for giving her air time. Waging a public campaign isn’t going to accomplish anything than get yourself fired.

  1. Sacred, I dont think I snapped at anyone. Not sure what I said that was insulting. It certainly wasn't my intention.

    I am just posting how I feel. Doesn't make it right or wrong, just my opinion. I certainly appreciate the feedback and the debate back and forth.

    But, as someone that spent a lot of years on the indy wrestling circuit and know hundreds of wrestlers that would change place with her for a second, I think it is a bit petty to go on Twitter and complain about such little things like match time, etc. It isn't as if she didn't know what the WWE was all about. She was in TNA, had tons of match time, had great opponents, and chose to take the money. I think that is great and more power to her, but the sour grapes later are a little ridiculous…in my opinion:)

    • I definitely agree with you that there are a LOT of people that would trade places with her in a heartbeat (like, say, the entire SHIMMER roster), but I like to think that a lot of the people who are in pro wrestling these days aren't in it for the money but, for lack of a better term, the love of the game. As I said, Gail Kim is one of the all time greats at what she does, and being relegated to a 3 minute match (or worse, being given great match time on a show no one watches) while Kelly Kelly and the Bellas get a huge push – without any talent to go with it – has to be frustrating. Was Twitter the best response? Probably not, but I certainly do understand where she's coming from, because I have the same reaction every Monday night.

  2. (continued from previous comment)

    For someone that's as athletic and hardworking as Gail Kim, I can see that being a huge source of frustration, and I don't blame her for saying something.

    Also, the other commenters are right – just because other people have it worse doesn't mean we lose our right to speak up about what's bothering us. Someone ALWAYS has it worse – worse than me, worse than you, worse than Gail Kim. That doesn't remove our right to say something about our situation, even if that takes the form of saying something semi-stupid on Twitter.

  3. Eric, it's possible to disagree with you without getting snapped at or insulted in return. At least, it should be.

    Should Gail Kim be complaining about this on Twitter? Maybe, maybe not – that's really up for debate.

    Should Gail Kim, Mileena, Beth Phoenix, et al be getting more ring time, more face time, and more of a push than the Bellas or Kelly Kelly? Well, let's see: Gail, Beth, and Mileena can wrestle (I would actually put Gail down as one of the all time great women wrestlers). The Bellas and Kelly Kelly… can't. So in that regard, Gail's got a good point: the Divas division has steadily denigrated to an elaborate beauty pageant, no wrestling skills or willingness to take a bump required.

  4. So that's the qualification here Eric? Someone has it worse so just shut your mouth and take what you get? Nah I don't agree and I don't think you meant it in that way. But they're also Racists…and I say that knowing nothing and not caring who reads this, because they're obviously racists as well.

  5. Of course its a back handed remark Anonymous. Look I could care less what she tweets but I am not her boss. I just think its a little ridiculous to be whining on Twitter about your match time when there are plenty of people on the indys that would be happy to swap spots with her.

    • And like I said, just because I am not homeless don't mean I can't complain about my problems. It was just an flippant remark, and I don't understand why people take twitter so seriously. WWE is a bunch of jacka&% of they fire her over this (They did fire Mickie James, so I am not gonna be surprised if they do something stupid like that).

  6. "Sometimes I don’t realize how long I haven’t been on RAW bc I still wrestle on superstars…which I love bc I get to WRESTLE for longer than 3 min and actually have singles matches! Hopefully soon…"

    Here is her tweet, correct? All she said was that she hasn't been wrestle on Raw and only appear in Superstars and that she gets to wrestle more than 3 minutes. She didn't make any snarky comment toward the creative team. It's all true, and she is just stating it. Some people make a big deal out of nothing. To me, it is just an innocent tweet.

  7. I understand what all of you are saying, and on basic principle, you are right. She has the right to say whatever she wants. She is a much better performer than the divas that take up the tiny amount of time alotted to them on Raw and Smackdown.

    But ultimately, this is like insulting your boss and expecting a raise. It is a bad decision to say to the people who ultimately decide how much exposure you get that they are not doing a good job. This is nothing more than shooting yourself in the foot. It doesn't matter that I agree with her, that I want to see Beth Phoenix, Gail Kim, and Natalya in matches and not Kelly Kelly or the Bella twins. But what she is doing is only going to ensure that creative buries her further for publicly calling them out.

  8. Newsflash: Gail can say whatever she wants. She's not the only person with a hatred of WWE creative, whether they're an employee of the WWE or not.

  9. Most of what they put on twitter is just clowning. Glad you could write a short novel on it though. And if it wasn't entirely clowning, she's right. Gail, Beth and Melina are 10 times the performers of the Bellas, Eve and Kelly in every way. And of the last two only Kelly gets even the slightest crowd reaction regardless of how hard they push her.

  10. You know what? There are millions of African kids starving at the moment, but that doesn't mean that we don't get to complain if we don't suffer as bad. It's condescending to say that other people have it worst and we should just be contend with ourselves. It just happens that she is right. Putting Kelly Kelly and Bella twins who can't wrestle for sh*t every week (for less than 3 minutes every week) is not how you want to promote the diva brand.
