TNA Wrestling says they’ve sent Awesome Kong home from their tour of the United Kingdom following a backstage altercation with Matt Hardy‘s wife Reby Sky.
TNA Wrestling tells Pro Wrestling Sheet, “Prior to the IMPACT WRESTLING TV taping at the Manchester Arena, Kia Stevens (Awesome Kong) was involved in an incident involving Rebecca Hardy (Reby Sky). Subsequently, Kia was removed from the tour and returned to the United States. The matter is being reviewed to determine if any additional disciplinary action will be taken.”
At this point, it’s unclear what needs to be investigated before they decide to take action.
PWInsider first broke the story, and sources confirm that Kong took issue with Reby dressing in the female locker room, so she tossed her bag into the hallway. We’re told Matt’s wife attempted to retrieve items left in the locker room for her newborn baby, but Kia blocked her from coming inside.
According to sources, Sky called the female wrestler a “f**king maniac” and it set Kong off.
We reached out to rep for Awesome Kong. So far, no word back.
