Almost missed out on Kharma?

No, this isn't a "My Name is Earl" post.

Saw this story on LoP today and found it interesting.

The Heyman Hustle website reports that Kia Stevens (a/k/a Awesome Kong) was almost not named Kharma because it was registered by Jennifer Thomas, a fitness model who was using the name at California based independent wrestling shows. WWE purchased the name from Thomas.

Thomas was under a developmental contract to WWE from 2005 to 2007. She is scheduled for a tryout soon.

I found it interesting simply because I didn't expect WWE to like any name so much that they would be willing to pay for it.

It is a good name though and the graphic in that final vignette underscores that.

Money well spent, I'd say.
