Update on Kharma and How WWE Acquired Her Name

Nick Paglino

The Heyman Hustle website is reporting that Kia Stevens (the former Awesome Kong) was almost given a different name by WWE when the company researched the name "Kharma" and found out a Jennifer Thomas, who is a famous fitness model (and who ironically trained in Ohio Valley Wrestling and Deep South Wrestling when both promotions were part of the WWE Developmental System) had registered the name for herself on the California independent wrestling scene.

Although she never got a WWE contract, the 5’1” hard body remains on the WWE radar through her modeling career and "men vs women" wrestling video series. WWE Chairman Vince McMahon liked the name "Kharma" so much, the company purchased the name from Jennifer Thomas.

The Hawaiian Tropic and Flex Magazine uber-hottie is scheduled for a tryout with WWE in the near future, and considering her petite yet power packed physique, you’d have to think she’d be a most interesting opponent for the former Kong.
