[WWE News] Kharma ‘Officially’ Announces Her Release
After a week of speculation, WWE Diva Kharma confirmed today via Twitter that she has indeed been released from the company. Kharma, real name Kia Stevens, joined the WWE last Spring but her run was cut short when she found out that she was pregnant one month into the run. Her most recent appearance on WWE programming occurred earlier this year at the Royal Rumble where she made her return as a surprise entrant into the Rumble match, making her the third woman (after Chyna and Beth Phoenix) to be given that honor. Stevens is probably most well-known in wrestling circles for her run in TNA as Awesome Kong, where she helped pioneer the Knockouts division. No word on when or where Stevens will pop up next.
Thoughts: Ms. Stevens is one of the best women’s wrestlers in history and definitely in the top 5 when it comes to the past two decades. Her WWE stint never got the push that it deserved, and for once it wasn’t due to poor booking decisions it had to do with some severe personal tragedies. I wouldn’t be surprised to see her return to the WWE once she has fully recovered and is ready to go. She’s simply too good to not be invited back and judging by the way she confirmed her release I think she and the company both already know that.
