In an interview with Bleacher Report, Kong talks about her time on Netflix’s ‘GLOW,’ her run with WWE and dream opponents.
Kong first speaks about her appearance in ‘GLOW’ where she plays explaining that she has enjoyed and loved what she has done in the wrestling business but now she has had a taste for working as an actor, she wants to pursue that more.
“I absolutely want an acting career. I think I’ve done what I’ve done in wrestling. I appreciate what I’ve done in wrestling, but telling the story that we’ve told in GLOW and having the experience I’ve had with the people I’ve had it with leaves me wanting more. Like I said before, this is what I wanted when I got into wrestling, this is what I got into wrestling to do.”
Next, Kong spoke of her time in WWE, where she firmly believes she would’ve been made a huge heel, involving becoming a Champion. She was under the impression she would aid in creating a super face to strengthen the division.
“I can only speculate, but I would think Kharma had a 99.9 percent chance of a title run and then my hope was to bring in a new girl and make a super face who is going to topple Kharma.”
“That was my goal and that was something Triple H and I talked about bringing in a girl for a program and making her a super face and us all making money. We never talked about who that would’ve been, we didn’t get that far. I left during my honeymoon with the company.”
Finally, Kong spoke about her dream opponent, mentioning Beth Phoenix. This was a match that could’ve happened, but never did due to Kong’s pregnancy announcement. You can view that in the clip above, which showcases Kong’s speech as Kharma in WWE as she explains her journey to arrive and having to say goodbye.
“Beth Phoenix and I never happened. The fans have seen Gail [Kim] and me, and I would always love to face Gail again to bookend our story. The fans would really love to see Beth and I dance in the ring and that never happened. I feel like the fans were cheated out of that so I would love to do that for the fans and for myself.”
Beth Phoenix was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year and is unlikely to ever grace a WWE ring again, despite being young and healthy still.
I’ve always wanted to see Kong do more as Kharma in WWE but it looks like her time has passed. Perhaps she could return in the future, even for a brief time. She would be dominant and help influence this new generation of talent.
