* {{Face}}: Although Gail has said she's more natural as a heel, she's primarily a face wherever she goes. She was a heel for her first stint in WWE - and showed up as such in TNA. However respect for her in-ring talent lead to her eventually turning face. She did make a heel run work when she returned to TNA - but she turned back face after a couple of years.

* {{Expy}}: Since her 2014 HeelFaceTurn she's been compared to a TNA Knockout equivalent of Wrestling/JohnCena the ever-present longtime stalwart face of the brand, approaching the record for most championship reigns, nearly never loses clean, can sometimes [[OneManArmy take multiple enemies at once]], and often accused by on-screen rivals of hogging the spotlight away from fresher talent.

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.
