Gail Kim told Massaro that she would help her get into Impact Wrestling. Everything seemed so positive at the time, but that was not the entire story.
“I had contact with her, probably a couple of weeks before that [her passing]. She wanted to get back into wrestling. She was like ‘Hey Gail, is there any way that I could work with Impact Wrestling?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, definitely when you get back in the ring, send me your stuff.’ She seemed so positive and upbeat and everything.”
“I know, one of my checks accidentally got mailed to her, so, I just had recent contact with her. It’s just shocking. After she passed and after all this stuff happened, she was supposed to mail me that check, and I just thought ‘Ok, nothing happened, whatever.’ I didn’t really care about it, to be honest. [After she passed] I got it, and it had a note written from her. When I got it, I was like ‘Oh my God.’ It was crazy.”
