So, as I’ve admitted in the past, I am not always super-up on every single show. But, hopefully, you’ve noticed that recently, I started tuning in to NXT regularly and churning out a Nutshell. (If you have not noticed, please go take a look at it. I’ll wait here.)
And, it was on the February 10 edition of NXT where I saw Nia Jax for the first time, in living color. And my first thought?
Awesome Kong, AKA Kharma, is a free agent. And what better way to counter Nia Jax, than by bringing in Kong?
Now, I know I haven’t forgotten Kharma’s less than awesome first time in WWE. She should have been dominant, then she apparently got pregnant, got bullied by The Bellas and disappeared. So, I don’t know if she’d even get another shot. But the WWE (and NXT) are experiencing tremendous growth, so there’s no reason she couldn’t get another shot, even if she lands in NXT.
But, should she? Would you give her a shot?
Should she? I’d say, from an in-ring perspective, absolutely yes. From a backstage perspective? To be determined. She was, after all, fired from her last place of employment due to an altercation that took place backstage. So either she’s got a history of them, and that was the final straw-in which case, I am probably steering clear of her. Or, she lost in a game of backstage politics, in which case I see no reason not to bring her back and see what happens.
Personally, I think she’s probably worth it, even if she is a bit of a risk. Most of WWE’s Divas and women are smaller, so they rely on the speed and precision moves. But Kong, like Nia Jax, is bigger and can be dominant. So if you have one, why not have both?
I don’t know that WWE would do it, but adding Kong to the mix wouldn’t surprise me, and could prove to be quite interesting.
WNZ readers, would you go for it?
