1. Gail Kim
The very first winner of the Knockout’s Championship, Gail Kim help put Impact Wrestling on the map with her impressive ability. Gail would become the inaugural Knockout’s Champion by winning a ten woman gauntlet match last eliminating Roxxi Laveaux. During her hall of fame career, Gail would win the Knockout’s Championship a record seven times.
Kim is currently the only female member of the Impact Wrestling Hall of Fame and is more than deserving of her spot. She helped revolutionize women’s wrestling years before the “Women’s Revolution” in WWE. While wrestling fans were praising TNA for their knockout’s division, they were also praising Gail Kim.
It is safe to say that the Knockout’s division wouldn’t be what it is today without Gail Kim leading the charge in 2007. Kim was a leader and pushed every woman that she stepped into the ring with to be their absolute best. As mentioned before, the matches between Gail Kim and Mickie James are still some of my absolute favorites.
It’s a true shame for them that WWE never truly knew how to use Gail Kim. She would have been an excellent part of their revolution as she was in the one in TNA. The most reigns, the first reign, and the best reigns. Gail Kim is a true G.O.A.T and is the only Knockout that deserves to be number one on this list.
