During Saturday night’s NWA EmPowerrr pay-per-view event, Awesome Kong announced her retirement from professional wrestling. The former WWE and TNA Superstar recently appeared on the “Women’s Wrestling Talk” podcast and commented on being in the ring with Gail Kim for the announcement, and more. She said,
“I don’t have the words really to express how that felt, but it felt appropriate for what she and I have journeyed through and if I were ever to exit this illustrious career of mine, I would do it in a manner that would reflect the respect I have for that woman. I think we did that.
I couldn’t say specifically the pies I have my fingers in, just that I have my fingers in some pies in entertainment and hopefully soon you’ll know the flavors. You’ll know what I’m up to very soon. I may be done physically in the ring, but now is when you transition into supporting the next generation and what they want to do in the ring.”
