Perfect 10 of 2008: Awesome Kong (#3)

Welcome to the Perfect 10 of 2008, the countdown that highlights Diva Dirt‘s ten top Divas and Knockouts of ’08! Which Divas/Knockouts have made the biggest impact? From champions to talented wrestlers to big personalities, the Perfect 10 has them all!

Striking fear in the hearts of all of the TNA Knockouts is the powerhouse herself, Awesome Kong. Dominating the Knockouts division for well over a year, Kong showed no sign of relinquishing her stranglehold in 2008.

Kicking off 2008 continuing her epic feud with Gail Kim, Kong finally picked up the Knockout Championship in January in the main event of Impact. On that same night, Kong introduced her new manager/mouth-piece/part-time-wrestler, Raisha Saeed.

Kong continued to reign over the Knockouts division until pesky newcomer, Taylor Wilde joined TNA in May and defeated Kong for the Knockout Championship. But Taylor’s reign would soon come to an end in November, when Kong regained the title, to become the the first two-time title holder of the Knockout Championship.

2008 saw more of the same dominance we’ve come to expect from Kong… will she finally get some new challenges in 2009? Perhaps competing with the men?

Check back tomorrow for #2
