Awesome Kong was one of the best female wrestlers in TNA because of her sheer size and presence. She was quite easily the biggest female work in the company. Despite her size, Kong was able to put on decent matches with Gail Kim.

However, Eric Bischoff claims that Awesome Kong was difficult to work with. During a recent episode of his 83 weeks podcast, Eric Bischoff claimed that while Awesome Kong was impressive, she wouldn’t have been a big star today because she was not easy to work with.

“She had a great look. She was impressive as hell, she was believable in the ring, but she was difficult to work with. If she was around today, unless she addressed that, because you can have all the tail in the world, but if you’re not manageable behind the scenes, by manageable I mean when it came to creative and laying out matches and being professional, unless you can bring that to the table along with your overpowering personality and your character all the things you can do in the ring, you’re not going to make it. You’re not going to last five minutes anywhere,” Bischoff said.

Awesome Kong’s last match took place on an episode of AEW Dark in 2020. She retired from in-ring action in 2021. Stay tuned to Ringside News for more coverage of such stories.
