Awesome Kong hasn't been seen on AEW screens since the 4 February episode of Dark, when she was unceremoniously booted from the doomed Nightmare Collective by Dr. Luther and Mel, who kayfabe injured the former TNA bruiser when she confronted Mel for her loss to Hikaru Shida at the tapings.
AEW's media accounts reported the injury as "serious." It felt like a write-off, and that's exactly what it was, with Kong currently busy filming footage for the next season of GLOW on Netflix.
Tony Khan commented on Kong's AEW status in his post-Revolution media scrum this Saturday. When asked about the legend's future, he said that while she is still working as a backstage producer for AEW, she will be taking a break from in-ring competition for the foreseeable future. They knew about her GLOW commitments when she signed a full-time AEW contract last year, so they haven't caused any issues.
There's every chance that Khan is working here, as he wouldn't want to spoil the surprise of a potential Kong in-ring return. Regardless, moving away from the ring and into backstage activities may suit the giant, who has 17 years of wear and tear on her mileage clock.
