Kharma (Kia Stevens / Awesome Kong) Opens Up About Her WWE Release and Her Time in TNA

For the first time since her WWE release, Kharma spoke at length with Diva-Dirt about her WWE release and also discusses her time in TNA as Awesome Kong. On her WWE release, Kharma (real name Kia Stevens) said:

“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.”

Meanwhile, Stevens had mixed but mostly positive feelings about her time in 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 US market, but that time is gone.”
