While working a tour of England, Awesome Kong, whose real name is Kia Stevens, ended up attacking Reby Sky while the two of them were backstage at the Manchester Arena. TNA officials had to release a statement so that fans would know that they are doing something about it. John Gaburick stated that Kong was immediately sent home from the tour and that further punishment could be levied after they do a full investigation into the matter.

An interesting point has been made about Josh Mathews being able to use the same moniker in TNA as he did in WWE. Generally, the latter corporation likes to copyright names and gimmicks that they come up with, so that they can control the capitalizing. The belief here is that management never bothered to file the paperwork to keep ownership of the handle. For those that do not know, the commentator's real name is Josh Lomberger.
