Why Did TNA Release Awesome Kong?

Well, this is a pretty interesting situation. Apparently, last week, Awesome Kong took exception to the fact that Reby Sky, Matt Hardy's wife, was changing with the other TNA Knockouts and threw her bag out of the room, according to WrestleZone. According to that same report, she hadn't changed with the Knockouts the week before, which Kong took exception to.

From that point, there are two stories of what happened when Sky returned to the locker room. The first had Kong trying to get her hands on Sky unsuccessfully, while the second claims Kong actually grabbed Sky by the neck. Regardless, it's led to Kong's release, as TNA released this statement:

“We conducted an investigation and determined releasing Awesome Kong is the appropriate action in this case,” said TNA Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and Television John Gaburick. “Kong has been a great contributor to TNA and helped solidify the Knockouts as the best female division in professional wrestling. We thank her and wish her well.”

Awesome Kong has responded well, tweeting out this message:
