Dixie Carter updated her Twitter (http://twitter.com/tnadixie) followers on the contract status of Awesome Kong today:

"Due to personal reasons, Kong asked for/was granted an early release from contract. We support her during this time & hope she is back soon"

We noted on Friday that TNA had parted ways with Kong so this should come as no surprise to any of you.
