Kharma On Whether Her WWE Release Was Appropriate

Kharma On Whether Her WWE Release Was Appropriate

Kharma spoke today with Diva Dirt about her brief WWE career and release, whether she would go back to TNA and more. Check out the highlights:

On signing with WWE: “I did not see it coming. I was actually about 14 days away from announcing my retirement in wrestling. I got a call. I’ll never forget, I was sick with a cold and I got a call from Tommy Dreamer and he asked if he could give my number to John Laurinaitis. And I said, ‘Um, yeah!’ Five minutes later I got a call from John Laurinaitis who spoke with me and offered me a position at WWE. I don’t think I closed my mouth for a good 20 days.”

On her WWE release: “Sometimes things aren’t moving along as quickly as they need to be, and some things weren’t progressing as quickly as they should have been. I think the release was actually a good idea and very appropriate. WWE, the world knows they don’t just hire anyone. If they hire you, they’re going to invest in you. They’re going to apply any and every resource they have for anything that you’re going through, so having said that, again, the timing just was there. My release was, in my opinion, appropriate.”

On whether she would go back to TNA: “I do appreciate the opportunities I was given by TNA, Dixie Carter and Terry Taylor. I appreciate my time there, it was good… until it wasn’t. [Laughs] No [communication] whatsoever with them. I’m very grateful, they’re the ones that introduced me to the U.S. market, but that time is gone.”

    Say hello to the new Chyna.

      really?…because she didnt suck up to TNA you think that of her?…get over it already

    • jbcissom says:

      Do you remember Chyna's comments when she was let go by WWE? Right off the bat, she basically said the same thing Kong said. Kong is known of have the same "emotional" stability that Chyna has/had.

      Kong had baggage before she went to WWE and her unfortunate miscarriage occurred. TNA took a gamble on her and it paid off. She just ran into the biggest prick of all in BtLS, and rightfully so, kicked his derriere.

      Beth Phoenix is no longer in WWE. Gail Kim is gone. The only female who is of noteworthy talent that is left up there is Natalya… and seeing how Wes Brisco has been used in TNA, I wouldn't be surprised to see her end up on TNA programming one day. There is nothing left for her in WWE other than to play the female who beats up on males… and we all know how that grew stale rather quickly the last time around…. Chyna.

        I love the fact that you think you know every aspect of her mental state.

        • toddmikki says:

          she put her mental issues on a plate for the entire world to know!

        • jbcissom says:

          It doesn't take a clincial psychologist or psychiatrist to see that she had some issues while in TNA, even before she debuted in TNA. WWE doesn't put up with that crap from their Divas. Look at what has happened to the Divas who've had the smallest bits of drama in the WWE.

    I agree here. I don't know if anyone is going to pay to see Kong do porn, but I think she probably does have some underlying issues that had WWE releasing her. TNA NEEDED Kong at the time so they probably did overlook some stuff at that time, while WWE doesn't feel like it needs anyone once they wear out their welcome or usefulness. I wish Kong the best, but I don't think it would be wise to have her back in TNA even if she wanted to return. We all know the dynamic of the Knockout Division has changed and we would likely read about her trying to kill Pritchard within a few months…lol.

  4. Philly_Cheese says:

    I think given the history of what happened in TNA with Kong, her return is unlikely although highly desired by many fans. We all have to admit she was one of the best KOs in the company's history, and is capable of some very top quality matches when paired with the right person. Her matches with people like gail kim, roxxy, and angelina love, are still the best KO matches in the company's history.

    Awesome Kharma was great in TNA !!! Hogan is the obstacle standing in the way of Her return to the company !!! BTLS is a fat , wannabe Howard Stern who deserves to get his ass kicked !!!

    I said Kharma would never be used on WWE. They only hired her to detract from the TNA womens division. If you'd ever met her in person, you'd know she just wasn't the type of person they were going to get behind. Plus, not to get controversial, but anyone notice WWE had 3 AA refs and none are rarely if ever on TV now (when they were, only relegated to diva and comedy matches), even though the storyline was they needed more refs but yet 2 AA refs sit in NXT, rarely seen. Plus, Byron Saxton is a MUCH better commentator than Josh Mathews, and Steve, etc, but yet you never see him anymore. I don't even need to bring up why it took so long for Brian Jossie to be used, even though he was a great talent, and why it was so easy to fire him. Or look at how many years Mark Henry was treated poorly despite having a great look and ability. And people wonder why Bautista left? But don't worry, soon as February rolls around, business will pick up, as usual. Just look at the tag division, and what the real tag teams that are filler have in common, and what differs from the tag champs on top? Not hard to figure out.
