Gail Kim sustained a concussion during the ten-woman tag match that aired on Thursday night and was taped two weeks ago.

Kim posted a video to Instagram of her treatment both before and after the match. Kim stated she almost threw out her back days before the IMPACT 1000 tapings on September 9, which her chiropractor helped her through, and returned to the facility after the match due to the concussion.

Kim was standing on the apron when Velvet Sky yanked her by the leg and Kim crashed to the floor with the clip circulating quickly online. Kim later addressed the incident and stated she was rattled but told her fans not to worry and that she finished the match.

Kim stated she would not tolerate any bullying toward Velvet Sky or anyone else but felt it was important to show this clip and explain the proper protocol regarding following up after sustaining head trauma.

Kim teamed with Awesome Kong, Trinity, Jordynne Grace & Mickie James against Deonna Purrazzo, Gisele Shaw, Savannah Evans, Tasha Steelz & Angelina Love in the main event of the show, which aired on Thursday night.
