Big Name Turns Down TNA Knockouts PPV

kharma 2Former TNA Knockouts Champion Kharma, who competed in TNA as Awesome Kong between 2007 and 2010 before joining WWE, has revealed she declined the company’s offer to appear on its Knockouts-centric taped pay per view.

Kharma and Gail Kim helped put the Knockouts division on the map in 2007 but following an acrimonious departure — after an altercation with Bubba the Love Sponge — it had been doubtful that the two sides would work together again. However, it seems TNA put feelers out to the former WWE star about making an appearance at the show which tapes next week.

Kharma wrote on Twitter:

In an interview with Diva Dirt last year, the former champion was adamant that she would never return to TNA.

She said: “I have to say that WWE is where my heart lies now. I do appreciate the opportunities that were given to me by TNA, by Dixie Carter and Terry Taylor, I really do. I appreciate my time there and it was good, until it wasn’t.

“Nothing against TNA, like I said, I’m very grateful and they were the ones who introduced me to the US market, but, that time has gone.”

As previously reported, both Angelina Love and Traci Brooks have also turned down offers.
