Gail Kim has earned the number one position in Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s fifth annual “PWI Female 50″ list, which ranks the top 50 women’s wrestlers in North America from July 1, 2011 through June 30, 2012. She succeeds Madison Eagles, who ranked No. 1 in last year’s list.

Pro Wrestling Illustrated attributes their decision to ranking Kim as the top women’s wrestler in North America to her record-breaking 210-day reign as TNA Women’s Knockout Champion.

The full list will be revealed this Thursday when the annual issue is released via digital download. The magazine will hit newsstands later this month.
