Kharma Says She's a WWE Alum: Why You Shouldn't Believe It

I think its safe to say Kharma is over with the fans.

She led people to believe on Twitter that she is not a part of the active roster anymore and then chaos erupted online. Keep in mind, she has never had an official singles match in the year-and-a-half she's been signed to a contract.

Kharma tweeted the following:

Yes. I have been officially promoted to the alumni section of the WWE roster.

My first impression—she is doing that maniacal laugh that always gets her a big reaction for doing what wrestlers do: work the audience. All too often, when a wrestler says no, it means yes. When they say I won't be there, they will be there. When they say they are being left out in the dark with details, they actually helped write the whole script.

Not all the time, but a lot of time. They try to throw you off on Twitter or anonymously give information that is incorrect to dirt sheets in order to confuse and surprise the audience later.

I find Kharma's comments very convenient seeing as the 1,000th Raw is quickly approaching. The rumor has been she's been ready to return to action for several months, but WWE creative hasn't had anything for her.

The fact that creative hasn't had anything for her does provide a possible point on the side of the argument that this departure from the roster is legitimate. If Kharma really is done, it only further proves my points I made last week about AJ's success highlighting the demise of the Diva's division.

The match everyone has wanted to see since Kharma signed with WWE is her against Beth Phoenix. But what do you do after that? Who else can oppose Kharma that people will believe and care about?

The answer is nobody. AJ is over, but that's not a believable match.

It would be great to see her work with the Superstars as a competitor or potential bodyguard scenario similar to Chyna in 1997. However, you can't have male on female violence in today's WWE.

So, final question: Is Kharma really done with WWE as an active roster member?

No, I don't think. As of the moment I'm writing this, she isn't listed on the alumni page of WWE's website like she said on Twitter. That right there makes me suspicious.

Also, look who else is on the alumni page. Names like Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar, who, according to their current storylines, aren't with WWE because of the legal matters, but in fact are a part of the current talent payroll.

Oh, and let's not forget about this tweet from her just before making the alumni comments:

Getting a flood of dm's. I guess the cat's out of the bag.

What is she insinuating here? She isn't on the alumni page of the website, so it isn't like people saw that and decided to direct message her on Twitter (not text or call). So is she trying to say people she works with are messaging her because they heard through the company grapevine that she's no longer on the roster?

Yeah, cause when something big like that happens, my friends and colleagues direct message me. I guess WWE really does love Twitter if they are future endeavoring talents via private tweets.
