IMPACT Wrestling's Hall of Fame has become an annual tradition for the company. Legendary names like Sting, Abyss, Gail Kim, and Jeff Jarrett are a part of this prestigious club.

The latest inductee into the IMPACT Wrestling Hall of Fame is Awesome Kong, whose contributions to the promotion will be recognized and celebrated on Bound For Glory weekend later this month.

Asked @dlobrown75 about the evolution of 'Too Sweet' from The Kliq to @MachineGunKA and @The_BigLG. Thank you for inviting me and @SKWrestling_ to the IMPACT Wrestling press pass @RossForman1 @SiRothstein.

Speaking to Sportskeeda during a recent press pass, IMPACT Wrestling producer D'Lo Brown attributed the renaissance in women's wrestling to Awesome Kong and Gail Kim.

"It is amazing that Awesome Kong is going into the Hall of Fame. Her and Gail Kim, for all the female empowerment and wrestling renaissance that ladies' wrestling is going through right now, it can be traced back to starting with Gail Kim and Awesome Kong. And I'll go on record and say that any day of the week," said D'Lo Brown.
