Awesome Kong Speaks…………

14 05 2010

Busted Open satellite radio show with Awesome Kong
Hosts: Dave LaGreca and Doug Mortman
Airs Mondays and Wednesdays on Sirius 126 and XM 243 from 2-4 EST

The Difference in Pay For Men and Women in TNA: “Wrestling does appear to be a man’s sport and in true tradition, women are traditionally not paid as much as their male counterparts. It (the payscale) is out of whack. Thats why instead of staying, I think everyone should come to a happy workplace and not to poison or be a bad egg, just leave the scene altogether and find something else.”

Working For Ring of Honor: “I’m not officially with the company yet, this is like a one night stand type of deal. I have a lot of unfinished business before I can officially join ROH and that is something that I am open to. They take wrestling here very serious…..I would definitely be interested.”

Her Beef With Bubba the Love Sponge: “There are things that happened backstage that should remain backstage. That’s why going on the program and speaking on what had happened, I shouldn’t have done that. I should have just kept it backstage. What happens backstage remains backstage and thats how it should be.

“He took it out on the radio. That drew me out a bit and I should know better. I’ve been in this business, I know this business, I respect this business, he doesn’t. People in our business can’t allow other people who don’t understand our business that because he wants to be a worker so bad and no one wants to play with him, people allow their friends to get away with things like that.

“The product definitely has changed, and since I am a wrestler, and this is pro wrestling for me, I took myself out of that particular product….of that equation, especially since it didn’t make sense monetarily.”





Awesome Kong on TNA & A WWE Debut??

4 05 2010
Former TNA Knockout Awesome Kong was a guest on the Monday Night Mayhem Radio show this week. Here are the highlights from the interview, courtesy of The Mayhem’s official correspondent, Paterson From New Jersey:Leaving TNA: “The transition has been great. I’ve been taking better care of my body and easing up on the wrestling & my schedule a bit, and I have the opportunity to pick & choose when & where I work, so that has been fabulous. I’m also going back to basics, and going back to Japan this week, and just reinventing & bringing back a more aggressive Kong.”

How TNA Changed During Her Time There: “Well, there were some differences towards the end. They have offered to leave the door open should I want to come back, and that is something I’m also open to. Just right now, I came to this before all the changes happened. People think that because I left right when the changes happened, that I left because of the changes, and that’s not really so. This was gradually coming on, and I my body needed a break, and I just needed to regroup and figure out exactly how I wanted my character to go & the direction I wanted it to go. It’s (TNA) definitely a different product in the little that I have watched. The X-Division isn’t has prominent as it used to be, and that was one of the reasons I came to TNA. When I was Japan, the X-Division DVD’s were like crack on streets. That has changed a bit. So I’d like to see that come back full force. They’re trying new things, and I wish them well, and hopefully the things they are trying works out for them.”

How the Knockouts Division Changed During her Time in TNA: “When I first came to TNA, there was an ambiance that everyone was a team. Backstage, everyone supported one another, we were all together as one, and we worked together as one to grow as a company. Everyone was putting in back-breaking work & putting in their all, because we were depending on one another to make something big happen. I think when things started to get bigger, I guess people got comfortable. I won’t say cocky, but maybe a little comfortable, and the fire wasn’t there anymore. People just got comfortable where they were or discouraged & stagnant.”

Her Role in the TNA Locker Room: “I’ve heard idle reports about the locker room musings. When I was there, things like that didn’t go on. Not to say people didn’t have disagreements, but when I was there/if something came up, I would usually step in & be a mediator for whatever was going on, because we would like to keep a harmonious vibe in the locker room. It’s very important to come to a happy workplace, so when I was there, I did my best to make sure everyone was emotionally safe & physically safe in the ring … These reports that I’m hearing, they may be true, and I’ve heard things have changed since I left. The air there has changed; it’s a different air from when I first arrived that.”

Going to WWE: “Their product is a bit different, and I don’t fit the ‘diva model’ per say. I do believe that if I was there, I would back them a lot of money. They have some of the most creative minds in professional wrestling, and I believe if they choose to pick me up, that everyone would make money all around.”
