A few months ago we covered the backstage fight between Bubba the Love Sponge and Awesome Kong which lead to Awesome Kong leaving TNA. Since then, Bubba has continued to be an on-air personality with TNA, from being a backstage interviewer and getting knocked out by Mick Foley, to being aligned with “The Band” most recently on TV. Well, it seems Bubba just couldn’t let the Kong situation go, as recently on his radio show, he had another DJ call Kong, and then ambush her live on the radio with a profanity-laced tirade.
Bubba challenged Kong to some sort of sanctioned fight, of course just to drum up publicity for his own show since we all know Kong would destroy his ass, and still, Bubba couldn’t help but mock Haiti once again. Well now TNA has let Bubba go over it, as it seems he finally went too far for TNA to keep using him.
Really the TNA show isn’t going to be hurt by Bubba’s departure, and maybe it will open the door for a Kong return, who was definitely a unique character in the Knockouts division.
