Gail Kim's Return Hits a Lackluster Note

Christi LottCorrespondent IMarch 28, 2009

In case you missed it, former WWE Women's, and TNA Knockout's Champion Gail Kim made her long awaited return to the WWE on this past Friday's Smackdown.

If I were asked to describe it in one word, that word would be disappointment.

Gail made her return during a boring, uninteresting and drawn-out Divas Championship title match between Michelle McCool and Maryse. The two, who once had some nice chemistry in their matches, had none at all.

The crowd was dead for the match, except when the two crawled on their hands and knees into the ring. Gail then ran out and performed a nice missile dropkick on Michelle, and a neckbreaker on Maryse. She then held the Diva title up high, but there was just no excitement.

It was like, "okay, on to the next segment."

Major letdown.

I think the biggest problem is that we WWE fans have a short attention span, and even shorter memory.

Gail left TNA quite a while ago. When it happened it was a big story, and everyone was anticipating her showing up on WWE TV.

So we waited...and waited...and waited.

Finally, after a couple of months, she shows up and no one cares. I guess the WWE is showing Christian and Gail what it thinks of their time in TNA.

I will say that at least Gail got a few hype videos. The WWE also did this to Melina with her return from injury, and only now is she getting a reaction from fans.

I'd like to hope Gail won't be booked badly, but anything's possible. If Gail can prove herself, and put on some good matches with this crop of Divas, she should be fine.

The future awaits. For now, all I'll say is welcome back Gail.
