** Since then, however, Taryn, Havok, and Kong have all left the company for varying reasons, and the division has had to rebuild with the introduction of new talent from the independents. Despite this, Gail is still around and as prominent and averse to losing as ever, with even other characters on the show lampshading the amount of focus she gets. Several fans have noticed that her character and booking has developed patterns similar to aspects that they found off-putting with Wrestling/JohnCena in WWE.

* StrangledByTheRedString: A non-romantic example. When she returned to TNA, she and Madison Rayne were suddenly best friends complete with LesYay tendencies. The two had no history and Madison hadn't even been in the company the last time Gail was. Granted, this was likely due to Karen Jarrett's influence more than anything else, but still...

* VillainSue: See CreatorsPet above for the details. Exemplified by having her acquire Wrestling/LeiDTapa as a bodyguard in the 2013-14 stretch yet not actually need Tapa's help to win most matches.

** TropesAreNotBad: It helps that she's quite possibly the best female wrestler TNA's ever had; this allows for more leeway in some fans' eyes, not to mention is probably the reason TNA feels so comfortable going to the well with her as often as they do. Case and point—that feud with the referee? Gave us two of the most intense Knockouts matches of all time. And for those who complain that she never puts people over, late 2014 is where Gail's stellar record comes in handy. Her last Knockout title run ended in a feud which saw [[WrestlingMonster Jessicka Havok]] repeatedly destroy her and take the strap, then she ate the pin for the former referee girl Taryn Terrell in the three-way title match between them. Taryn and Havok are pretty much set as the new top face and heel of the Knockouts division now.

* CreatorsPet: In TNA during her second run. She immediately came back and won the Knockouts Tag Team titles within three weeks (with no storyline behind it). Two weeks later she held the Knockouts Championship again, cutting short the reign of Velvet Sky who had been built up to be TNA's next big face (her reign lasted five weeks and she was missing from two weeks of TV). Even after losing the title, she was rarely beaten cleanly when TNA usually has no problem getting tenured Knockouts to put others over. She continued to dominate storylines to the degree where a program for the title was relegated to a ''subplot''—so Gail's feud with the referee could take centre stage.

* VillainSue: See CreatorsPet above for the details. Exemplified by having her acquire a bodyguard in Lei'D Tapa. Yet she doesn't seem to need her since she wins all her open challenges rather easily.

** During a throwaway segment in which Daniel Bryan danced with all the face Divas. He was dancing with one of the Bella Twins and then moved on to dancing with Gail. Accidental Foreshadowing perhaps...
