TNA Wrestling Fires Bubba The Love Sponge

Bubba The Love Sponge

The always controversial Bubba the Love Sponge has been fired from his gig with TNA Wrestling following a verbal, on-air confrontation last week with former TNA wrestler, Kia Stevens (aka Awesome Kong).

The profanity and insult-filled verbal assault on Kia Stevens (aka Awesome Kong) took place on “The Cowhead Show” on Tampa’s WHPT, 102.5 FM, on Wednesday.

Stevens, a former Total Nonstop Action Wrestling champion, had phoned the program, and Clem was in the studio. The bad blood between the two stems from an incident in January  2010 where Kong beat up BTLS backstage at a TNA taping. Read more about that incident here >

On Friday night, TNA Wrestling officials posted a notice on their official website that they “elected to terminate the services of Todd Clem aka Bubba the Love Sponge.”

Bubba the Love Sponge weighed in on his radio show yesterday regarding his firing from TNA. He called TNA President Dixie Carter a “”mark bitch” for following Awesome Kong’s Twitter page after she was left the company.

He addressed the issue on his morning radio show on WHPT, telling listeners that he didn’t want to go out “painted as a racist.” He went on to say that TNA Wrestling was “below him.” He also remarked that TNA would “feel the wrath of Bubba.”

Exclusive audio of the exchange is available at www.cowheadradio.com. TNA Wrestling is carried on Spike TV.
