Gail Kim "Eat Defeat"

Gail Kim Comments On Wrestlers Using Her “Eat Defeat” Finishing Move

Gail Kim recently appeared as a guest on the Fightful podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During the appearance, the IMPACT Wrestling executive spoke about her thoughts on other wrestlers using her “Eat Defeat” finisher, who she remembers asking for permission to use it and what specifically bothers her about people who use the move.

Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where she touches on this topic with her thoughts.

“Some people have and some people haven’t. Mia Yim did. I don’t really know that many people that have used it. I know Enzo has used it. I never invented it. I learned it in my wrestling school that I trained at in Toronto. My only thing is you don’t have to ask me, but I don’t like it when people don’t use it as a finisher because that’s what’s more disrespectful. Don’t use it as a transition move. Use it as a finish.”
