It’s fair to say that the wrestling world was very surprised when Kharma’s WWE profile page was moved from the active roster to the alumni section recently, especially given the hype that had surrounded her since signing a WWE deal last year.
Shortly after her debut, and before her first televised match, Kharma (real name Kia Stevens) made the shocking announcement that she had fallen pregnant and would not be able to compete during the pregnancy for obvious reasons. After taking some time away from the ring Stevens made a surprise return at the 2012 Royal Rumble – apparently not long after giving birth to her child.
The truth however was very different. Stevens had in fact lost her child but had not made the news public. For months after she kicked arse in the Rumble websites speculated when she’d make her return to the ring. But as each PPV passed it seemed something was amiss.
For the first time since being released from her deal Stevens has gone on record saying that after the death of her child she became incredibly depressed and as a result put on so much weight she was in no fit state to wrestle.
Now though, the woman formerly known as Awesome Kong in TNA says she has recovered and is ready to get back into fighting shape.
TMZ are reporting that the future Divas champion is in talks to star in her own reality series documenting her return to the ring.
There is no word yet whether Kia Stevens will be returning to WWE but if she does lets hope it’s as a monster heel hungry for Diva gold.
