Exclusive: Update on WWE’s Plans For Awesome Kong

Nick Paglino

WrestleZone has learned from a key insider this evening that World Wrestling Entertainment still has "extensive, major plans" for Awesome Kong, but the reason she has yet to debut with the company is because "Wrestlemania season is not the time to debut a new character."

The comparison was made to Brock Lesnar’s debut with Paul Heyman in 2002, which occurred the day after Wrestlemania. "Vince (McMahon) has high hopes for Kong," our key insider told us, "he doesn’t want her to get lost in the push to Mania, and wants a clear, direct, focused, powerful spotlight on her when she finally debuts."
