Sami Callihan has high praise for Awesome Kong heading into IMPACT 1000.

IMPACT Wrestling‘s Sami Callihan was a recent guest on Women’s Wrestling Talk. When asked who the toughest Knockout of all time is heading into IMPACT 1000, Callihan said it had to be Awesome Kong and put over what she meant to the company.

“Oh, you have to go with Awesome Kong, Amazing Kong. She’s a person of many names,” Sami Callihan said. “She was one of my favorite wrestlers when I was in high school and getting into independent wrestling and getting into TNA. She is a performer like none other. And I’m absolutely happy to see her be able to branch out and not just be in professional wrestling.

“She was awesome on the show GLOW on Netflix. She’s an ambassador for women’s wrestling everywhere. I don’t think the Knockouts division would be what it is today if it wasn’t for a character like her. Perfect place. Perfect time. Exactly what the wrestling world needed.”
