Shanna & Awesome Kong Released By AEW

AEW officials reportedly chose not to renew contracts for Awesome Kong and Shanna.

There was some speculation on Kong and Shanna after their profiles were removed from the AEW roster page over the weekend.

Shanna originally debuted for AEW on October 30, 2019 with a Dynamite loss to Hikaru Shida. She took some time off from AEW due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but returned in November 2020 with a Dark win over Tesha Price. Her last AEW match came on Elevation in early April, a loss to Leyla Hirsch.

Kong made her AEW debut at Double Or Nothing 2019, competing in a Fatal 4 Way with Kylie Rae, Nyla Rose and the winner, new AEW Women’s World Champion Britt Baker. She worked the Casino Battle Royale at All Out 2019, defeated Leva Bates on a November 2019 Dark episode, then defeated Miranda Alize on the December 18, 2019 Dynamite show, and had her last AEW match on Dark in early January 2020, a win over Skyler Moore. She had a few other non-match appearances and also participated with the “AEW Heels” brand.

It was reported in February 2020 that Kong had taken time away from AEW to film G.L.O.W. for Netflix, but the final season of that show was nixed in October 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

There’s no word yet on why Kong and Shanna’s were not renewed, or what the future holds for them, but we will keep you updated.
