Dixie Carter Addresses Billy Corgan ‘Buying’ TNA Wrestling Rumors

The Tennessean has a new article online featuring quotes from Dixie Carter on the rumors of Billy Corgan being a potential buyer for TNA Wrestling. We never put much into the story but here’s what Dixie had to say about it:

“Since we have been in business going on 12 years now, this has been an ongoing (speculation), ‘Oh, we’re going out of business. We’re not going to make it,’ ” Carter said. “Ever since we started, people were taking odds on how long we would last. This last time I think a lot of it was perpetuated by a story that Billy Corgan from Smashing Pumpkins was going to buy it.

“I texted Billy and I said, ‘Oh really, so you’re going to buy my company? Are you excited? That’s cool.’ And he said, ‘Oh, don’t you love rumors.’ ”

The article goes on to discuss TNA’s new #Impact365 strategy and how badly the pro wrestling business needs it to pay off, a sentiment that more than a few of us share. You can read the piece in its entirety at this link.

    Dixie Carter having the lead singer of the Smashing Pumpkins on her cell and being able to text him freely is odd….
