After news that there was major heat on Bubba The Love Sponge backstage in TNA for saying “F— Haiti” on Twitter, it turns out there’s a lot more to the story.
Hulk Hogan appeared on Bubba’s radio show on Tuesday morning and said TNA Knockout Awesome Kong attacked Bubba backstage and puched him in the face at Monday’siMPACT! taping in Orlando.
Kong has been taking part in fundraising efforts to raise money for the victims of the earthquake Haiti which has claimed upwards of 200,000 lives.
Bubba described the incident:
“She was wearing wrestling gear, and she came in on me and sucker punched me right on my left cheek, and I was like, what’s going on… then she came out me again, hit me again in the mouth, and she goes, ‘This if for Haiti! This is for Haiti!’ and I’m like ‘What is going on?’ Finally I put my left hand out and push her away from me, and she comes at me again and I just cover up, because I cannot fight back on a woman. Not only will I be fired from TNA, which I probably am, but my radio career is gone if I take a woman out!”
Bubba and Kong were both sent home.
A source in TNA says that Bubba has major heat in the locker room and might not be around for too long despite being a Hogan ally.
UPDATE: SEScoops.com can confirm that Awesome Kong backstage in Orlando and is expected to be used for tonight’s iMPACT! taping. The TNA locker room is said to be almost 100% behind Kong in the situation and there’s no heat on her for attacking Bubba.
