Gail Kim to induct Awesome Kong into Impact Wrestling Hall of Fame

Gail Kim will induct Awesome Kong into the Impact Wrestling Hall of Fame this Saturday at Bound for Glory, announced Thursday on Impact's weekly TV show.

The ceremony will take place at 9:30 PM Eastern during the Countdown to Glory pre-show that will also see the first-ever Digital Media Champion crowned in a six-way match.

Kong's induction was initially announced during this month's Knockouts Knockdown show on Impact Plus. She joins Kim as the only other woman to be inducted.

Kong (Kia Stevens) spent more than six years in TNA/Impact over two stints, winning two Knockouts titles and the Knockouts Tag Team titles as well. She and Kim feuded over the title during both of her runs with their last clash happening in January 2016.

The end of Kong's career came in AEW where she had a handful of matches in 2019 before what would be her final bout on AEW Dark in January 2020.

In the last few years, she gained notoriety by playing Tamme Dawson on the wrestling-themed Netflix series GLOW that ended after three seasons.
