Kong Almost Not Named Kharma, DVD Titles Pulled From Europe
– WWE asked their European video distributor SilverVision to pull a number of DVD titles from their website including Hart and Soul: The Hart Family Anthology, The True Story of WrestleMania, Greatest Stars of the ’90s, The Best of RAW 15th Anniversary and Raw The Beginning: The Best of Seasons 1 & 2.
Regarding this, Silvervision stated on their Facebook account, “It has been removed at the request of WWE – we’ll have more news on this next week.”
— The theme for the month of June on WWE Classics On Demand is “Bad to the Bell.” The synopsis reads: “Relive classics matches and moments with the Superstars that you hate to love, but love to hate.”
— The Heyman Hustle website reports that Kia Stevens (a/k/a Awesome Kong) was almost not named Kharma because it was registered by Jennifer Thomas, a fitness model who was using the name at California based independent wrestling shows. WWE purchased the name from Thomas.
Thomas was under a developmental contract to WWE from 2005 to 2007. She is scheduled for a tryout soon.
