Knockout Spotlight: Awesome Kong

Christi LottCorrespondent IMay 12, 2009

I've decided to do a feature article on each and every Diva and Knockout. The articles will be coming twice a week and will cover why they're good, etc.

This week's Spotlight is on former TNA Knockouts Champion Awesome Kong!

Why she's good:

Where can I begin? The woman is an anomaly, especially in the States, and in more way than one. Physically, she possesses what even most of the guys dream of having: a look.

No other Diva or Knockout could pull off how she looks and what she wears. It only heightens her appeal as a monster.

She's also a really good wrestler, agile and powerful, which isn't an easy combination for a woman her size.

That's thanks to being trained in Japan alongside arguably the best "large" women's wrestler of all time, Aja Kong.

Why she's bad:

For me, there's nothing bad about her. More so, it the lack of true competition for her in TNA. SHIMMER and Japanese promotions are a perfect fit for her when it comes to being able to compete against a wide range of wrestlers.

TNA, unfortunately doesn't have that. On the other hand, not having Kong constantly wrestling allows the opportunity to keep her fresh.

What she brings to TNA:

Standing out. TNA tries to argue they're different from the WWE in every way. All they have to do is put up a picture of Kong and they win.

I highly doubt the WWE would ever hire a woman like her in their company, and they are truly missing out. Kong is legitimately one of the best women's wrestlers out there today.

She brings to TNA a high caliber of skills and is a walking advertisement of the perfect gimmick.

Stay tuned next week as I take a look at four-time former WWE Women's Champion Mickie James and former Divas Champion Michelle McCool!
