Last week! All this happened! This week! The same will happen, but in Manchester!

Check out Part One of our exclusive chat with Kharma/Amazing Kong – she talks reality TV, signing for WWE, and thoughts of retirement.
One of the quotes I really like from you was a very gracious and interesting one – you don’t think the Divas get enough credit. Did you mean from WWE or the fans or both?
I dare say both, actually. And I actually used to be one of those people. Before I got to WWE, I was very dismissive of their Diva division.

In Part One of our exclusive interview, Kharma aka Amazing Kong talks to TOWIS editor Carrie Dunn about her return to the independent wrestling circuit, why she was thinking of retiring, fighting against injury – and why she loves reality television…
It’s fantastic to be talking to you – and fantastic to have you fully back on the indy scene.
I am fully back on the indy scene – not necessarily a full schedule, more like a half-schedule, I am working against injury, two bulging discs, so I’m working a half-schedule just to make sure my name stays semi-relevant, and media-wise I’m ramping it back up. I disappeared there for a while – the only person on my Facebook was my manager, and I hadn’t tweeted in forever. I went from winning awards for tweeting to just being ghosted out, so I’m coming back!
Why did you take a step back? Was it deliberate?
A little bit. I think after leaving WWE and just focusing on that and figuring what’s my return plan – if there’s a return plan – what’s next, who am I, what do I do? Read the rest of this entry »
