Amazing, Awesome Kong
« on: November 23, 2009, 04:00:05 AM »
Yeah,i know that she s not in joshi,anymore,but i wanted to discuss about his japanese career.Furthermore,i saw  a topic on hamada,so i do not think it bother anyone,to have a section,on kong,here.
So,i know that kong was champion with kimura during a long time and that she seemed a big deal in japan,because she pinned a lot of people like kyoko inoue,with an amazing spiral sit down powerbomb.
But i wonder if she has won a single championship in japan.Furthermore,why she s called kong?.She s a fan of aja kong?.Is the name of kong in joshi  the same thing that tiger mask,in an other promotion.I mean is this a prestigious name that only a few wrestler can have?.Was kong able to speak in the backstage segments,when she was in joshi or was she considered like a beast like in tna,and did not speak very much?.

Furthermore,why she s called kong?
Play on words partly because of her size, and it was also a term for "King Kong" in the movie (the REALLY old one).

Quote

Yes-she is a former WWWA World Heavyweight Champion (All-Japan Women). She reigned from January 4, 2004-May 2, 2004.

And I'd say she was a beast, especially when she teamed with Aja. They even fared well against the men, including a reign as Hustle Super Tag Team Champions (as Erika-Aja's real name-and Margaret).

Forget who it was specifically that did so but they def came up with the name as a dig against Aja. Doubt she even knew who Aja was though cause at the time as she hadn't even been in wrestling more then a year when she debued with AJW. Says a lot that she improved so quick cause she was horrible when she first started. Few years later when they met after Amazing Kong invaded GAEA to feud with her (which lasted all of 1 match) they ended up becoming friends & tag partners

Personality wise she was a lot diffrent back in her Japan days.
She got to speak quite often and is actually a really really good promo and very charasmatic so I find it funny whenev people will get mad at the idea that they let her talk ocasionally in TNA. Though thear it's only like short grunting few word sentences so I can understand not being impressed by her mic skills if that's all you've seen.

She also used to dance quite a bit as well as part of her entrance (anyone ever wonder about her entrance music choice in Shimmer & else whear, that's why) though she droped that part of her act a while ago which sucks because her signature dance so kicked 8 million kinds of ass.

Back in 04 for a short time, her, Aja, OZ, Ran & Toshie were a heel stable in GAEA and Ran & Toshie used to do the dance with her and it was the greatest thing ever ever ever.

My translation said something like that Kong was Takako's favorite wrestler, and that she loves her charm. She also said she wants another match with Kong ASAP. Looks like all of Japan wants a piece of Kong LOL except maybe Kyoko Kimura LOL

Where did you come up with the name Amazing Kong?
I didn’t come up with the name Amazing Kong myself. It was given to me by Masatsugu Matsunaga of All Japan Women’s Wrestling. They had a falling out with Aja Kong but had her name on the card for one of their biggest shows of the year. They came to LA looking for new talent and found me and decided to name me ‘Amazing’ Kong that way they could put that ‘A. Kong’ would be appearing at the show.  No one would or did expect a new Kong to pop out of the curtain.

She's headed, for now anyway, to Ring Of Honor. She'll make her ROH debut on 5/8 at Manhattan Center in NYC and will go back to being Amazing Kong. She'll face Sara Del Rey in her debut.
I predict the "Death Ray" will malfunction and subsequently get squashed.

Wow, great news , i m glad she choose roh instead of wwe and their money.

Hopefully,roh will solidify their women division by bringing in women from shimmer and kong also will go to japan to team with revolution amandola and destroy the joshi scene. *approve

By the way, i want kong to use her sitdown powerbomb , her spiral powerbomb and her top rope splash ,now.
She did not used that in tna and only used her implant buster as her finisher there,although a lot of joshi girls kicked out of that when she was in japan.

From what I've read about her time in TNA, I can only heap incredible amounts of praise to Amazing Kong for handling it the way any sane person would in her position.  Disrespectful just to be funny or whatever, Bubba?  I'm surprised that you're still breathing after that little tweet about Haiti.  Too soon, pal.

Nah, she only meant to give him a piece of her mind. But from a combination of depression over her Manager's(who she thought of as a Father Figure) death, Almost Zero Sleep, and doing all that work with that Haiti benefit, the delirium got to her and she simply snapped.

She worked thear before a few years back, think for just 1 or 2 shows though. I know she did a tag involving her, Sara, Daisy & someone else.

Don't think there was any choosing to be done, WWE's never been interested.
If they actually did offer her a deal and it wasn't for a ridiculously low amount I actually think she would take it.

She had no problem (and said she enjoyed) doing this, what's the worst McMahn could do to her

She did not used that in tna and only used her implant buster as her finisher there,

She used all 3 of those moves several times in TNA

It s true she used the sit down powerbomb and the tope rope splash,in tna,but she did replaced the sd powerbomb for the implant buster as her finisher last year and did not used her former finisher anymore.Furthermore,she always or nearly missed the tope rope splash there,it sucked.
At least,in japan it worked a lot.I recall a match vs kyoko inoue where she did this move through inoue and a table,that was great.
Finally, i do not recall she used the spiral sit down powerbomb in tna.No,seriously.She did that maybe once....but i do not remind it.

She stopped using some of her moves as often because girls were complaining(mainly Christy)

And she said in an interview the WWE did offer her a contract or at least called her saying they were interested, but she chose TNA because they let the girls work.

As for actually using the moves:

Not true. They expressed an interest, but never followed up on it.

There is nothing wrong with what she did with HUSTLE. I'd bet she had a lot of fun doing that.
