Awesome Kong sent home from TNA’s UK tour after incident

TNA star Awesome Kong (Kia Stevens) was sent home from TNA’s current UK tour following a backstage incident with Reby Hardy (aka Reby Sky, Matt Hardy’s wife) in Manchester, England on Friday according to multiple wrestling media reports.

A report by PWInsider claimed that Kong became upset about Reby attempting to dress in the women’s locker room and threw her bags out of the room (Reby reportedly didn’t get dressed in the women’s locker room at the Bethlehem TV tapings).

Sky reportedly went to meet with TNA management about the issue and a physical altercation took place between Sky and Kong when Sky returned to get her things. The report by PWInsider, based on eyewitnesses, claimed Kong “throttled Sky around the neck and assaulted her” for not apologizing until security and TNA agent Pat Kenney broke it up.

TNA officials then made the call to send Kong home from the current UK tour as a result. Reby Hardy was the only one to have commented first following the incident added on Twitter, “No time for high school drama. I REFUSE to play this bullying game.”
