Suspending belief is what the wrestling business is all about.

However, it's going to be extremely difficult to do that if Awesome Kong actually signs with WWE.

Based on her size and appearance, the other divas in the company simply do not look like they legitimately would stand a chance against her.

Kong is 5'11", 275 pounds—that's quite a huge difference from the petite models who masquerade as wrestlers.

On average, the WWE divas hover around 5'5" and 115 pounds. At 5'5" and 135 pounds, Natalya looks considerably bigger than the other divas.

Beth Phoenix, the biggest diva on the current roster, stands at 5'7" and weighs 150 pounds.

All of them would look tiny compared to Kong.

Another reason why the divas would not stand a chance against Kong is the style of wrestling that is utilized. WWE does not encourage the divas to use a stiff style of wrestling, fearing that bumps and bruises would interfere with the various photo shoots that are done throughout the month.

Kong, on the other hand, embraces a more realistic style that she learned while working in Japan.

Former TNA Knockouts Champion Gail Kim was able to look credible against Kong despite being very petite. However, she took a hell of a beating while working a program against Kong.

It wouldn't come as a complete shock to hear her list Kong as her toughest opponent ever. The other divas might not be used to that type of punishment.

Vince McMahon and his creative department are going to have to come up with something clever if they want fans to believe that their divas have a chance against Kong.
