Kharma: Former WWE Diva Makes Her Return to the Ring for Shine 5 IPPV

Luis CamposAnalyst INovember 14, 2012

Kia Stevens, also known as Awesome Kong (and Kharma during her brief stint with the WWE in 2011) is returning to the ring this Friday, November 16 as part of a star-studded all-female Shine 5 iPPV event.

Stevens was last seen on WWE television at the 2012 Royal Rumble match, as the 21st entrant. Her return was much awaited after the ex-Diva had to leave because of an unpredicted pregnancy.

Steven's pregnancy would result in an unfortunate miscarriage that would eventually prevent the female wrestler from committing herself to wrestling full-time.

Kharma announced that she had parted ways with the WWE in July of this year, tweeting that the WWE had released her from her contract.

Her return to the ring this Friday is a much awaited one by fans of women's wrestling.

The card for the Shiner 5 iPPV event will feature matches such as: Sassy Stephie vs. Heidi Lovelace, Jessicka Havok vs. Nikki Roxx and a main event with Stevens (as Amazing Kong) and her partner Jazz vs. Rain and Mercedes Martinez.

With the WWE Diva's Division at an all-time low, Steven's performance this Friday could be an indicator of whether or not she is ready to return full-time to the WWE.

After a troubling 2011 and a rocky start to 2012, the former ex-Diva Kharma looks to be ready to once again return to her promising career.
