8 Reasons Why You Should Expect Kharma This Monday

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.
The Timing

Word had it that Kharma said she was going to appear at RAW 1000, as she told a fansite, which later had to remove the report. So if she knew her set return date and openly told people about it, then it doesn't add up to it being her decision to leave because "creative has nothing for her".

Let's see:

Episode 996.
Kharma training to return with personal trainer.
997.
Kharma ready to come back on TV.
998.
Kharma gone? Um, okay.

It would have been more believable to me if this happened a lot earlier, out of focus of the 1000th episode. RAW 1000 is supposedly the biggest episode in the history of the business, as they try to add many surprises to make it must-watch from start to finish, and it's very likely that the Divas will also have a match of some sort.

RAW 1000

Remember that article? Vince said he had a list of Superstars he wanted to keep hidden from WWE so their appearances wouldn't get spoiled. At Extreme Rules, WWE wasn't happy about all the fans predicting Kharma's return. It was too obvious since the Bella Twins were soon to be on their way out of WWE. So they booked Layla to take the Divas title instead. Discouraging reports like these are designed to prevent history repeating itself. We have them babble about how "creative didn't have any ideas for her" when in reality they're trying to avoid becoming a predictable product.

The Conflicting Reports

One report says she was released, TMZ says she was fired, yet another report says it's all an error by WWE's website, and even another says she left to "clear her head" even longer than she has already tried to, and it really took them six days to make their minds up? Which one is it? Not to mention WWE were said to be "pissed" last Thursday about her Twitter profile getting moved early. Why would they be "pissed" if she's no longer under their care? And an even bigger question: Why would they be "pissed" about it if she left on her terms? WWE likely is in on this charade.

Her Importance To The WWE

Besides her, what other Divas are considered over as of now? Very few, AJ and perhaps Kelly Kelly, who is away at this moment. WWE wants her to return, the Divas want her to return, the fans want her to return and she wants to return, which has been a slow, gradual process. Kharma was Triple H's first signing from his backstage role, and it was a success up until her having to go on maternity leave. If Triple H signed people who didn't turn out well, why has he been given privileges to sign more Indy talent?

On a side note: The Wrestling Observer reported that WWE was thinking about a possible feud between Kharma and Sara Del Ray. This was posted the SAME day of her Twitter transfer, and you'll find it if you search news on Del Ray on this very site.

The History of WWE's Summer Contract Cliffhangers

Remember all the chaos surrounding CM Punk's contract status last year? Remember Daniel Bryan's firing the year before that? How many of you were convinced that they were never going to come back to the WWE? This is one of their finest ways WWE likes to pull the strings of the IWC, and it's no different with Kharma. They like to trick the dirt sheet sites, as expressed in the latest episode of "Are You Serious".

The Lack of Acknowledgement by WWE Talents

Aside from all the sources in WWE telling the sites information, none of the wrestlers themselves are confirming it on Twitter. No one is saying ANYTHING on the matter. The Divas commented on the Bella Twins' releases, they also commented on Maxine's departure. And let's not forget how many Knockouts confirmed Angelina Love leaving TNA. Many fans asked the Divas about Kharma but the truth is, they aren't allowed to talk about her, probably because they're acting as if she isn't leaving. The people she works with would be the most trustworthy people regarding their status out of every public image in the WWE. If they aren't saying goodbye, she's not going.

Her Own Twitter

Kharma has been very quiet regarding her status, and it's likely WWE is still monitoring her Tweets as to what she should and should not post. No change in her name, no change in her Twitter handle, she's not accepting bookings as she Tweeted, never did she type the words "released", "quit", or "leaving", and she only has stated that her profile got moved. Nothing else.

What Has Layla Done Lately?

Layla hasn't been given much to do for a while as Divas Champion. She beat Beth Phoenix twice on PPV and hasn't defended her title since. It seems appropriate to me that Kharma would be next to feud with her, I mean Layla isn't over and it's not like she can do things by herself to get over. It wouldn't make much sense for Layla to enter another feud and then Kharma returning during the middle of that feud. Layla has had the opportunity to put her title on the line this Monday, but lost the poll to Christian and his IC title by 2%. And they want this mystery opponent to be a surprise indeed. If Kharma wasn't planned to be this mystery opponent against Layla, who would they have in mind, Kelly Kelly? Because if Kharma isn't coming back, then what are they going to do with Layla?

    I highly doubt WWE is to blame for the dumb state of the Diva's division. For months I've had the strong belief that it's the repel in ratings and the very little fan interest that keep WWE from approaching it more.

    I say she'll be back sooner or later. I highly doubt she'll go back to TNA. One, they don't give ALL the women time to shine. You got one 2 hour program a week and most of those women only earn in the three digit area, so if you don't appear for two months, you make nothing in two months. Two, Kharma did not leave on very good terms with TNA, not only was she mad about the low pay but she was mistreated by Bubba the Love Sponge, Hogan's pal. You can learn more about it here:

    In regards to the bolded, I don't say they have to be total experts, but the people i listed that I don't think that wrestle up to par with the others, i would put in the same boat as Bellas. they are more eye candy then entertainment.

    To the italicized, I disagree, because for the most part for a while, the WWE relied on hiring pretty looking girls and training them to wrestle, rather than getting woman who looked good and could wrestle.

    As for the Bubba thing, isn't the Love Sponge no longer a part of TNA? Granted Im sure he and Hogan are still buddies, but to me that shouldn't affect if Kharma can go back there are not, considering most of the knockouts probably look at her as one of the better wrestlers

    In the WWE, entertaining the audiences comes first. They wanted to hire personality with potential to become larger than life characters, that's what Laurinaitis saw anyway. WWE can't sell tickets, merchandise, and increase viewership only by having just skillful wrestlers in their roster. Just because you may be a talented performer doesn't mean you're guaranteed to impress your audiences, just ask Gail Kim. If they push somebody it's because they're over and they make the show look good. It may not be fair but that's nothing personal, it's strictly business.

    Regarding Kharma though, WWE did the right thing allowing her time off to deliver. Not sure how different it would be if this happened when she was still in TNA but considering Daffney and her many scary stories there, it's a relief she didn't get pregnant _there_.

    Kelly Kelly
    Eve
    Aksana
    Tamina
    Alicia Fox

    The ones who can wrestle
    Beth
    Natalya
    Layla

    Ones who I haven't seen wrestle to be able to judge
    AJ
    Kaitlyn


    So in comparison to those who I would consider able to wrestle a decent match to those who can't, that is a percentage of 63%, so I was a little off. regardless of those who can or can't wrestle, the Diva's division is no longer a focal point or even a center piece of the WWE. So why take a women wrestler, arguably who would be the best out of all of the ones I previously mentioned, and stick her in a division that has already sunk? Wouldn't it be better to stick her in a company that actually gives their women's division a time to shine on their show...TNA. That's just one mans opinion tho
    Swap Layla with Tamina and I'll agree with this list more.

    I think she wanted main event type slack given to her and her personal issues over her professional ones when she had not even done anything in the WWE yet to gain such pull.

    She did it to herself and now the diva's division will suffer if she is really fired.
    I don't think she intended on getting pregnant. If she wanted to get pregnant, I doubt she would have even stepped into the ring.

    Great blog man. I, unlike everyone else who posted in here, think you might be on to something. I don't think they would just let her go like that. It just doesn't make sense to me. They put a lot of time and effort into presenting her to us with the vignettes and the build up. I think ppl forgot that she also made that Royal Rumble appearance, too and got a great pop. So I agree with you that something may be in the works for her to return on the 1000th episode.

    You didn't mention this in your blog, but I think it was reported on here that she tweeted something about getting a new mother-in-law, when we knew that she's been engaged for a while. Maybe it has something to do with the DB and AJ storyline. Whatever it is, I think you're right in all of your assumptions and evidence that you've presented.

    Remember when this site reported that WWE would be 'feeding red herrings' to the press? Just a thought...

    I hope you are right about this and I unlike other people it seems want her back in WWE we saw her in TNA what else is left for her there? yes the divas division sucks right now but trile h has shown interest in revitalizing the tag team division and perhaps he has plans on doing the same with the divas, this can't be done without kharma right now and I do think she is coming back, great blog btw also.
