In October 2002, she was hired by the WWF, now renamed World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).
She spent eight months training in Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) and appearing in house shows and dark matches before being called up to the main roster.
Gail Kim-Irvine (February 20, 1977) is a Canadian retired professional wrestler, professional wrestling valet, model and actress of Korean descent, currently signed to Impact Wrestling as a producer.
She has a record-breaking seven-time Knockouts Champion.
The following week, Kim turned heel on Trish Stratus and subsequently formed an alliance with Holly to take on Stratus, defeating her and various partners on several occasions, until she was later assisted by Lita.
At WWE's Unforgiven PPV event on September 21, 2003, Stratus and Lita defeated Kim and Holly in a tag match.
She, however, was released by WWE on November 3, 2004 as a result of cost cutting.
Kim was caught off guard by her release and was told that management wanted to take the women's division in a new direction.
After obtaining her degree from Ryerson University, Kim decided to become a professional wrestler and joined Ron Hutchinson's "School of Pro Wrestling" in Toronto.
She received supplementary training from Rob Etchevarria at the "Squared Circle Pro Wrestling Gym".
The four women continued to feud until November, when Kim was sidelined with a broken right collarbone.
