Awesome Kong Reportedly Heading to WWE

In what would be the biggest signing in Diva history, WWE has reportedly signed or is close to signing former TNA Knockouts Champion, Awesome Kong.

Earlier today, Kong wrote the following on her Twitter page: “My dreams just came true today. I got my dream job. Yes, THAT one.”

According to Mike Johnson at PWInsider, Kong is indeed referring to WWE. Johnson says that it is ‘pretty much a done deal’.

In the past, WWE Hall of Famers including Jim Ross and ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin have expressed their desire to see WWE sign the two-time Knockouts Champion.

Kong recently appeared at ROH’s Final Battle iPPV.

Thoughts: This would be a huge, huge boost to the WWE Divas division and it would also be a wonderful end to a rough year for Kong. Congratulations to Kong!

  • Spike7000

    Huge step in right direction

  • gavin harvey

    hope this is true it will be amazing !!!!!

  • MrAliciaFox

    I think … I just died. hahaha This is HUGE!

    Probably the best news I’ve heard in some time.

  • Buggy

    Yay!!! This is hugh! Lets hope the Wwe dont fack it up!!

  • BillyGP

    Happy for the news but find it odd they pick on two divas for weight issue.

  • RangerDeon

    They need more female wrestlers.
    Right now they have so few on smackdown that they’re relying on LayCool/Beth Phoenix and Natalya every week.

    I’m glad. I remember WWE fired a lot of good female wrestlers because they were ‘going in another direction with their divas”. I feel like they’re taking a step back to how it used to be.

  • gavin harvey

    i just read that a source in wwe says wwe is looking to build the divas back up as there fed up with the slagging they get i hope this is true but signing kong wont help if they dont give the divas time the have a 2 hour show give the divas at least 20 mins, a ten min match and maybe two 5 mins segments or stuff,

    if its true wwe should sign taylor wilde and others

  • Koedii

    Omgee. 0_0 epicness. Congrats to her.

  • Rhawk

    . . . I’m at a loss for words, I truly am! 0____0 What a way to end 2010, with a BOOOOM!


    Just ugh.. I want kong in TNA. Now I have to watch diva job to kong?

  • Lily

    My heart just bounced and now my stomach is feeling quizzy. I feel sick now because of the happyness flowing through my heart. Looks as though 2011 may be the best year for awesome kong, finally WWE do the right thing.

    I’m glad i stayed positive and not fall across the one’s that stated she would never get signed by them. Also, it does show how much WWE will do to get popular TNA knockouts to come to them.


    Ewwwwwww why couldnt they just get Taylor and Tiffany and call it a day………. worst news I’ve heard. Now why would they hire her and she got arrested, but release Tiffany =(

  • Lily


    So what, kong could kill all of the divas on that roster so who ever jobs to her it’s a right thing to do.

    Also wouldn’t be surprised to see her appear at the royal rumble.

  • ahlanthony

    now all they need is to reactivate the womens championship.

  • adifferentsame

    Awesome Kong deserves a platform like WWE, and I think there’s many a dream match waiting with the likes of Gail Kim, Natalya and Beth Phoenix. But… Awesome Kong WWE Diva? I’ll hold out. I just hope that if this is true, they don’t turn her into a joke.

  • vonVile

    Looks like McCool has got a new Diva to bury.

  • Lily


    Your kidding, right? Worst news? That’s a joke hopefully.

    God, why are people being nagative. This is the best, for so long we have wanted the WWE to hire someone not diva material and someone so interested and talented. We can see the best matches with kong in WWE.


    They will prob mak Gail and kong feud..

  • divafanjill

    Am I the only one who finds it interesting that WWE gives Mickie James crap for being ‘fat'(which is a word I would never use to describe her), and then hire Kong who also doesn’t fit into the diva figure?


    Now she would kill Kelly Rosa and Eve =(

  • ashford st pierre

    I hope to god that this is true. I would love to see her beat the crap out of Cena. I think that the WWE have a great chance to do something different with the Divas. You’ve got some great talent like AJ and Naomi coming through. Some girls that could be great on air alent and also some pretty good girls that given the chance can put on some amazing matches, I’m so excited. Go Kong. Oh WWE don’t f it up.


    @LVEF no I’m so serious I do not like her. Yeah I’m happy for her and all but when she appears on my 42 inch tv I’ll be reachin for the remote to click the off button.

  • Alex

    OH MAH G-O-D…. i could so see her being a big bruiser heel as laycool’s or melina’s bodyguard or they could set her up as a face against laycool. Looks like we’le see some busted implants…..

  • HoustonHomewrecker

    Kong and Gail feuding again could be amazing. This the best news. Smh @ people using this to bash McCool!? What does Michelle have to do with this????
