Dixie Carter Discusses TNA TV Negotiations, Confirms Injury, BFG In Japan

Donald Wood and other Bleacher Report Featured Columnists interviewed Dixie Carter to promote the airing of this week's episode of Impact Wrestling where #ItHappens.

Below are some notes from the interview:

  • Dixie said every two years she goes through negotiations with Spike TV, this is just the first time it's been public. She blamed social media for changing how negotiations play out in the public eye. Carter said they are still talking with Spike TV but there are other suitors interested as well. She re-affirmed her commitment to growing the TNA brand domestically, stating that she is not going to stop.
  • Carter confirmed she was injured in the #ItHappens spot that will air on this week's show, where Bully Ray and Devon put her through a table. She wouldn't reveal the severity of the injury, saying she wanted fans to watch it first.  Dixie admitted it hurt like hell.
  • Regarding Bound for Glory airing from Japan, Carter explained she thinks it should air in the normal pay-per-view time slot. This, of course, would indicate airing on tape delay.

    Not sure I want to pay $40 to watch a taped show.

    • BlazeKing

      I did and it was one of the best times I had all year. I was at the Hardcore Justice taping that was followed by a regular impact taping. They taped Xplosion matches at the start of it all. The crowd was hot that night. You’ll see it Aug. 25 and the week after.

      • Adam Eaton

        Going to the event live is completely different . I’m talking about paying $40 for a taped ppv event. I’m not comfortable doing that

        • Chris

          It’d be like WrestleMania happening in Europe, you’ll read everything that happened, so why spend the money for a pre-recorded show?
