Kharma released from WWE 'sometime last week'

Last week, WWE Diva Kharma's -- real name Kia Stevens -- profile was moved from the Superstars section to the Alumni portion of WWE.com, signifying she was no longer with the company. The following day it was reported while the website change was a technial gaffe, it was only because it was done a bit too early and Kharma was indeed on her way out.

Now The Wrestling Observer is reporting the former TNA Knockout was indeed released from her WWE contract "sometime last week," putting an end to her brief run with the Stamford-based company.

She made her in-ring debut last year on May 1 at Extreme Rules following weeks of vignette hyping up her debut. But less than a month later, she was written off TV after she announced her real-life pregnancy.

That pregnancy turned tragic when Stevens revealed her child did not survive the birth. Her absence from WWE TV following the revelation was more than understood but it now appears she won't re-debut.

For those hoping for a renaissance of the Divas division, this move might convince you not to hold your breath. Despite signing Sara Del Rey, WWE simply doesn't seem committed to bolster the ranks of the female division. If scuttlebutt is true and "The Queen of Wrestling" was hired simply to help train the models-turned-wrestlers then we can expect a slight increase in skill but as good as Del Rey is, she's no miracle worker.

Hell, even Dave "Fit" Finlay was never able to teach Kelly Kelly how to properly run the ropes.

It seems, for now, a wrestling fan's best option for checking out the fairer sex inside the squared circle is Anarchy Championship Wrestling (ACW) and SHINE Wrestling, who is holding their first show tonight live on iPPV.

The Wrestling Observer also noted the standard 90 day no compete clause most, if not all, exiting WWE Superstars have is in place so don't expect to see the vaunted women's wrestler appear anywhere without Vince McMahon's permission for the next three months.
