Multiple sources are reporting that Awesome Kong and TNA Wrestling have agreed to part ways.

Kong's profile has been removed from TNA's website, which is their unofficial way of confirming a wrestler's departure from the company. They do not publicly comment on roster changes.

It was reported last week that Kong was telling friends within the industry that the company had agreed to release her from her contract. This coincides with a recent Twitter post where she thanked Dixie Carter and TNA Wrestling for wishing her the best in her future endeavors.

She had reportedly been asking for a fifteen percent pay increase or a contractual release, with company officials opting for the latter.

One of the holdups in her release becoming official is that TNA wanted to include a lengthy non-compete agreement, while she was asking for the traditional ninety-day non-compete. Sources are unaware of the length of the non-compete agreement that will be enforced.


The biggest thing they had to a sure fire "star" with the knockouts and they just let the woman leave. Not even going to get into the "but Bubba is still there" argument either.

All of this for a 15% pay raise? Surely you could have cut the Nasty Boys pay by 7.5% each.

I don't think you understand percentages.

At this point I won't believe anything until she appears on TV with someone, or a year has passed.

I understand the percentages. I meant they could take it out of those slug's pay and give it to her.

Either everything we heard is wrong, or that's some impressive spin right there.

And I agree with StaggerLee in principle here -- Kong is worth infinitely more than the Nasty Boys.

And also, as wrestling physics has taught us, spin= 3x the damage by a similar move that does not involve spin. Please also see "punch, discus", "elbow, handspring" or "sault, moon"
