Agreed. And incidentally, that's also the reason why i wasn't too bothered when she left TNA : there's only so much you can do with such a monster heel before becoming redundant. And with Kong holding the KO championship twice, and the tag championship once, there wasn't much left for her to accomplish in TNA anyway.
In Shimmer, Pazak already tries to book as many wrestlers as possible each volume, without involving the big stars in the title scene, hence the Shimmer girls vs joshi series of matches. With Kong gone, it's one less match to book on the card.
As far as Taylor goes... meh. Bringing her in right now would do nothing but overcrowd the show a bit more (though i don't know if the joshi girls will still be there at the next tapings), without too much upside.
