Jim Ross recently loaded a new entry onto his blog at JRsBarBQ.com. This time around, Ross referenced the rumor floating around the interwebs that Awesome Kong was signed to a contract by WWE. From this fan’s perspective, I like what Ross said at the very end of his entry, which you can read below:
Emailer…I don’t know if WWE has signed female star Awesome Kong or not but if they have then I think it is a smart hire. After meeting her at the Cauliflower Alley Club (CAC) function a year or so ago in Las Vegas, I wrote that I thought she would be a nice fit in WWE because Kong is so unique. If she does sign, I’d bet a case of BBQ sauce that her name changes.
If the Kong rumor is true, and this is just my two cents, I hope that Kong NEVER wrestles a man in WWE.
Again, just from my perspective not only do I think Kong will be wrestling men in WWE, but I think that she’ll be turned into some type of quasi-comedy act. I can just see Vince McMahon putting her with Mark Henry to create a massive, African-American super couple for some reason. Like we all live in the 1950’s or something. But I guess that’s why I don’t watch WWE, right? 😉
Anyway, like I said in a previous entry, I really hope for the best for Awesome Kong – she’s such a superior talent in the world of women’s wrestling. Here’s hoping for her success!
