Gail Kim

– Gail Kim underwent immediate surgery on Monday for appendicitis.

The 41-year-old tweeted on Sunday night that she thought was suffering from food poisoning, but it was actually appendicitis. She then scheduled surgery for the following morning.

In a follow-up, Kim said on Monday night that the surgery went well and she expects to return home today.

Kim wrestled her retirement match in February and now works behind the scenes with Impact Wrestling’s female talent as a producer and agent.

– Former WWE Superstar Rich Swann will appear at two Impact Wrestling TV tapings taking place next month in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

Border City Wrestling is helping Impact Wrestling promote the events, taking place on June 1 and 2 from St. Clair College, and the indie promotion announced today that Swann will be at both shows.

Swann is the husband of reigning Knockouts Champion Su Yung. He was backstage at several Impact Wrestling TV tapings that took place in Orlando, Florida last month, which is where the new promo photo of him comes from.

On February 15, WWE announced that Swann and WWE had mutually agreed on his contract release. WWE’s 90-day no-compete clause stipulated in the terms of his release expires this week, so he should be free to appear on any wrestling television show or pay-per-view. Since his departure from WWE, he’s been working indie wrestling events.
