Nash Reportedly Returning To TNA, Kong No Longer Awesome
– The Motor City Machine Guns are featured on the cover of the latest issue of The Wrestler. They are pictured holding the TNA World Tag Team Championship, which they dropped to Beer Money, Inc. at Genesis.
— Former TNA Wrestling performer Kia Stevens’ attempt to trademark the term Awesome Kong was officially dropped on December 3, 2010. TNA Wrestling had opposed Stevens’ attempts to trademark the ring name, stating that she never owned it. Stevens performed under the alias Amazing Kong prior to joining the organization in October 2007, so ownership would likely fall under their auspices. The organization also claimed that Stevens used fraud and misrepresented herself when she applied for ownership of the name. She never responded to their claims and thus lost her bid to trademark the name. TNA Wrestling warned Stevens in October that if she didn’t respond by December 3, 2010, she would lose her bid to trademark it. She didn’t respond by the deadline and is now officially prohibited from using the name.
— According to SLAM! Wrestling, “Kevin Nash is expected to return to (TNA Wrestling).” He is still listed on TNAWrestling.com’s roster section after his contract with the organization expired in October.
