Awesome Kong Released by TNA

Christi LottCorrespondent IMarch 1, 2010

In an absolutely stunning move, albeit not shocking, TNA has released Awesome Kong. Yes, let me say that again, TNA has released AWESOME KONG!

This following the reported altercation with Bubba the Love Sponge at a TNA taping, as well as Kong making moves towards a lawsuit against the personality.

While we're still waiting on an official statement from TNA, Awesome Kong herself wrote this on her twitter page:

"I'd like to thank (Dixie Carter ) and all of the employees at TNA for wishing me the very best in my future endeavors."

Awesome Kong is without a doubt the best thing that TNA had in the Knockouts Division. I know some people will disagree with me and say that The Beautiful People have become a major staple in TNA, and while I agree, Awesome Kong was the pillar holding it all together.

A star like her is few and far between, especially as a woman. She was, for me, the one entity truly keeping the Knockouts different and in some cases, better than the WWE.

I'm very upset that she's gone as I have no doubt she won't be on TV anywhere else, meaning we won't see this great star every week. I highly doubt that Vince McMahon would acquire her.

I will write a more in-depth article this weekend about what I think the division should do.

Where can I comment?
