There are reports coming out of Japan saying that Awesome Kong has retired from professional wrestling. Kong was scheduled to compete at a show in Korakuen Hall on 11/25 but pulled out because of health issues.
It’s no secret that she has been very limited in the ring in the past couple of years because of back issues. Her issues have not gotten better and her doctor advised her to retire.
One very little known fact is that she was planning on retiring in 2010 shortly before she got the call to sign with WWE. We wish her all the best in her next career.
