Dixie Carter was on a conference call today to promote Impact Wrestling airing live in the 8 PM timeslot on Spike TV tomorrow night. Below are the highlights:
- Dixie said Brooke Hogan will be not wrestling but is there to help get some attention on the product.
- She doesn’t feel the company needs to do 12 pay-per-views a year and TNA is currently negotiating their pay-per-view contracts. When asked about the ideal number of pay-per-views, she said six to eight is a possibility.
- Dixie said it was her that approached Spike TV about the idea of going live every week during the summer.
- She said the workers prefer the four sided ring and as MMA gets more popular, there’s some confusion between the two. There is still a possibility they bring back the 6-sided ring for special events.
- Jimmy Jay will replace the departing Don West.
- A “major announcement” for tomorrow’s Impact was hyped.
- Dixie said TNA would be making an announcement regarding the location of Bound for Glory 2012 within the next few weeks.
- Dixie said they are concerned about making all 12 weeks this summer special and they haven’t talked to Spike TV about going live beyond those dates.
