If you all haven’t already, check out Stevens on Maron’s WTF podcast. I’m the same episode has Chavo Jr as his other guest. Steven’s has a fascinating story of how she came into wrestling.

Indeed a great episode, but Debbie is still the worst.

I've got to watch the last episode, and the show has some standout episodes and is still good (though a romance towards the end feels forced) but I think I prefer season 1.

Another great interview here with Kia Stevens on GLOW, her hair on the show, the origins of the Kong name, her mother's experience as an actor, and more.

I love how Nakamura pops up in the weirdest places in wrestling history. 

Also she's giving him a lot of credit for assuming he wouldn't know the connotations of calling a black person "Kong" just because he's from Japan when that's the country that made Bob Sapp famous pretty much just for being a large black guy.

To be fair, I'd imagine in Japan, King Kong is mainly known as a monster, not an ape. Which was always my problem with "Kong ". From an American perspective it always came off racist. For me it was 50/ 50, half racist shit I hate and half me loving her being named after the greatest of all monsters.

Her story has changed then because the one she always used to tell was that AJW gave her the name because they wanted her to be their new Aja Kong character and she said she was nervous about bumping into Aja in Japan due to not wanting to think she was stealing her gimmick. Apparently when they met Aja was a sweetheart and it was never an issue and they later became Double Kong as a team.

Hell yeah. Awesome episode. S2 has been even better than S1 thus far. And we're getting a S3 !

Kia Stevens was terrific in "her" episode too, hopefully she pops up in other good TV shows or movies.

That last show was ridiculous. The "calling it in the ring" part was so cool. S3 can't arrive too soon. Heard it's gonna be darker. Not too dark I hope, but damn if this show ain't my favourite pro-wrestling TV show of the year.

As expected, it was much lighter on pro-wrestling this time, but also considerably darker and deeper. The one criticism I have is that it feels too short and I want S4 already. And I mean, with that ending there have to be a S4. Loved this season, again.
