EXCLUSIVE: WWE Source Confirms Awesome Kong to WWE

Nick Paglino

When Awesome Kong posted on her Twitter page, "My dreams just came true today. I got my dream job. Yes, THAT one," everyone speculated she had signed with World Wrestling Entertainment.

The speculation appears to be accurate.

Although WWE has not yet given Kong (real name Kia Stephens) a name yet, and a starting date has not been determined, a key WWE source inside the company confirmed with WrestleZone tonight "the deal is complete, and Kong is in."

Our source also stated, "Kong’s arrest in Florida for driving with a suspended license was no issue to WWE," and also added, "Kong’s representative met with WWE on Wednesday and finalized the details on the deal. It’s official, and Vince (McMahon) will decide when to officially announce it or have Kong debut on television."
