If it gets people like LayCool or Alicia off my TV for awhile then its a good move. Its not like this division was going anywhere. I hope TNA realizes how stupid they were for choosing a backstage announcer who didn't last more then two weeks after she left over her. Amazing Kong is what she should or will use. My hope is she is on Smackdown far away from Lawler's fat jokes.

Is Alicia on TV?
She's on TV almost weekly. Perhaps you just don't notice her because she blends in with the ring apron and barricade
I'll rephrase! Is Alicia on Raw more than every other week as a throw-in heel tag partner?
Didn't TNA run a bit where Kong was in the Beautiful People as their monster ripper? I wonder if WWE will go that route with LayCool right away. WWE outsider favorites usually have to go to FCW and then NXT first to prove they actually suck.
I don't think they have another five women to do an NXshe5 though. They could reshoot an alternate season 3 with Kong in Aloisia's spot and Kaitlyn in Jamie's spot and Kong destroying Aksana's wedding like 3 Minute Warning and Kaitlyn getting hit with the gong and dying.
Bottom line, if Kong costs that Bellas even a minute of TV time then she has no place here.
I think we are more apt to see her come out and kill Natalya after she beats Melina. Beth vs. Laycool has been brewing for a while, and a big feud for the Divas Title seems like a better choice.
I do fear what WWE will do with her though. I have this horrible vision Funiqua Rashad, Secretary to the Official Consultant to Smackdown - a "Big Momma" style boisterous and sassy character with a fondness for eating and hitting on the "pretty boy" wrestlers (like Cody).
It's pretty amazing that the WWE gets a major player like Kong and everybody is nervous as to whether they use her correctly or not. This should be a slam dunk and yet I think the odds favor a total train wreck.

As a lesser of two evils I personally do prefer Striker's sly patronising tone and quirky inconsistent opinions to Lawler's constant terrible ancient jokes. I mean, it'd be nice if they treated the women like actual human beings too, but you can't ask too much.
Tazz and Tenay have been getting worse and worse as time goes by in this regard too, so it's not like Kong's coming from anywhere more enlightened where commentators are concerned. Booking is a different matter, but I'm happy to stay optimistic.
She'll last about a year (maybe less) moving from meaningless feud to meaningless feud before the WWE releases her because they "have nothing for her" (Translation- she isn't a 100lb bimbo so they can't market her as the traditional "sexy diva").
Hey; remember Bull Nakano? Rhonda "Bertha Faye" Singh? Both talented wrestlers who were burried because the bookers had no idea what to do with them. Rhonda in particular was damn impressive for her size but no; they stuck her in that stupid trailer park trash gimmick.
I'd love to be wrong; but I doubt I will be. If they book her as an unstoppable monster heel who's a threat to all the divas (both face and heel) then I'll be impressed.
I think you are kinda touching on the biggest downparts for WWE itself having a monopoly. They cannot get a big instant pop/shot in the arm of bringing in a former WCW and lesser extent a former ECW wrestler.
