Awesome Kong announces retirement from wrestling

Aug 28, 2021 - by Steve Gerweck

During tonight’s NWA EmPowerrr PPV, Awesome Kong announced that she is retiring from pro wrestling.

Kong made a surprise appearance at the event during a Gail Kim promo. Kong saved Gail Kim before an attack by Taryn Terrell, Jennacide & Paola Mayfield.

Kong then grabbed a microphone and told Gail Kim that she was her greatest foe & there was no other way to end her career than being in the ring with Kim. She then announced that she was done.

Awesome Kong is a former NWA Women’s Champion, a 2-time Knockouts Champion & former Knockouts Tag Team Champion with Hamada.

In 2008 Pro Wrestling Illustrated ranked Kong No. 1 of the best 50 female singles wrestlers in the PWI Female 50 & named her PWI Woman of the Year.
