She returned to Canada for BSE Pro Wrestling then went back to the USA where she signed with Wrestling/{{TNA}} in 2005 to help build up their fledgling women's division. Kim received rave reviews for her in-ring work which paid off in 2007 where she was crowned the first ever [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/us/tna/tna-wm.html TNA Knockouts Champion]]. A feud with Awesome Kong followed, which was highly praised by critics and helped draw a huge amount of ratings for TNA. She left the company in 2008 over a pay dispute and resigned with WWE for the next three years. She then re-debuted in TNA, regaining the Knockouts Title belt, winning the Knockouts Tag Team Title Belts, again becoming one of their top female talents. She'd also become the inaugural holder of Imperial Wrestling Revolution's Diamonds Title Belt.

* FinishingMove: Among the more notable is the Necktie Breaker (like the Regal Cutter with two arms), which she used in TNA. Eat Defeat, an innovative jawbreaker done with the foot which she first did in her second WWE run and then carried to her TNA return. Sometimes the Flying Dragon/Christo, a headscissors into an arm bar[[note]]She didn't innovate it, but since she's the first WWE wrestler to use it she often gets credited for doing so. The move was originally done by Dragon Kid of Toryumon[=/=]{{Wrestling/Dragon Gate}}. Gail ironically would end up in Toryumon Mexico in between WWE and TNA.[[/note]]. She formerly also had the air raid crash, known to WWE viewers as the Celtic Cross of Finlay or to latter viewers. White Noise of Wrestling/{{Sheamus}}.

* GirlinessUpgrade: Increasingly gravitated toward fancier gear and hair styles as her career progressed, excepting her long coat&[[SunglassesAtNight night shades]] "Matrix" gimmick. She's also gradually made more appearances not related to her next match, something she used to vocally refuse.

** A minor example. On TV she choked out Derrick Bateman when Daniel Bryan suggested she show him her technique.

** Another one was her mini-push against Victoria in 2004. She gained three submission wins over her (while she was Women's Champion) - and was set to challenge her for the title at ''Bad Blood''. Suddenly however she lost to Lita on Raw and the match was suddenly changed to a Fatal 4 Way, including Lita and Trish. This was used to further Trish and Lita's feud and Gail was mostly forgotten about afterwards.

* CurbstompBattle: When Victoria was was women's champion she fought off Molly Holly and Gail at once but then later got curbstomed when Gail started using the christo. Gail's first defense of the knockouts title against Kong ended up being successful but Kim hadn't yet figured out how to keep up a sustained offense against her. Kim took advantage early on in her last woman standing match against Angelina Love and only slipped up a few times due to Sky's continual interference.

* MarriedToTheJob: Perhaps it was just to cut the GLORY interview short but she claimed her only interests outside of wrestling was anything that would make her better at pro wrestling.
