It’s being reported that TNA Knockout’s Champion Awesome Kong is apparently upset over her current pay rate, which is said to be lower than newcomer Brutus Magnus. Magnus, who was brought in from the UK after Dixie Carter saw him on the country’s version of American Gladiators, is still considered very green by many backstage in TNA and has not done as much for the company as someone like Kong. It is for reasons like this that Kong is apparently frustrated that a rookie is making more money than her as she feels she is a valuable asset to the TNA locker room.
PWInsider.com is reporting that although WWE has released Afa Sr, one half of the legendary Wild Samoans tag team, he will still be associated with the company as VP of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis has plans to attend a training camp at Afa’s Wild Samoan Wrestling School in Florida to scout talent.
