In case you missed Impact Wrestling this week, Gail Kim is once again the Knockouts Champion. She defeated Brooke Tessmacher, Awesome Kong and LeiD Tapa to capture the belt.

Gail Kim is Asian, so that helps with the demographic. Jeff Hardy is advertised for the show, but his availability could be an issue.
