Kongo Kong Issues Statement On Allegations Of Assault
Kongo Kong has spoken out about allegations of assault and issued an apology.
This week, an independent wrestler named Kyle Boone posted a statement claiming Kongo had assaulted him at a past event. According to Boone, Kongo was mad he didn’t sell a chokeslam properly during an intermission and said he wanted to see Boone’s penis or he’d take his merchandise money from him. Boone says he ended up showing Kongo, who still took the money from him. Boone then said at the verge of tears he begged Kongo for the money back, who ended up giving it back.
Kongo Kong posted the following statement regarding Boone’s allegations:
@TheKyleBoone We live in a different society than when I started in this business and back then, it wasn’t uncommon to rib rookies. I certainly didn’t intend for it to hurt you at all, let alone as bad as it did. I sincerely apologize for hurting you so bad. Our relationship since then and up until now gave no indication that there was any animosity between us as it was all hugs and smiles, that I knew of. We’ve even worked together since then, at my request and you were taken care of during said matches. If I had any clue that you felt like that, then I definitely would have squashed it then. As I told all of you young ones I only pick on people I like and see something in. Again, never my intention to hurt or scar you by any means and I sincerely apologize. I hope we can hash this out between us like adults.
