Dixie Carter – Out With The Old, In With The New

Dixie Carter posted the following on Twitter:

While Carter’s Twitter is kayfabe to accentuate her heel character on TNA television, it’s more legitimate than one might think. TNA is looking to sign new talent despite their tight budget and they are looking to build around some of their young superstars (such as TNA Champion Magnus).

    Oh Yea! Bye bye TNA – we’re so sorry to see where Dixie is taking you.

    • Frida Olsson

      TNA will be around in 2015. I trust in Dixie..

      • jarredpaul

        You are one clueless idiot

  • Burr

    What aspiring talent would ever want to do such a thing right now…the company is obviously in rough shape and who can Dixie actually claim she has made a star out of? If AJ Styles is any indication, years of dedication will only get you looked over by your own company and not taken seriously enough to work for the real company.

    • Frida Olsson

      Read AJ interview, he left the door open for a TNA return has no resentment towards them. He choose to become a free agent to test out the market, he wants to travel around the world and wrestle in different promotions. simply because this might be his last time to do that. He blasted the Dirt Sheets for posting wrong information about him,signing with TNA..

      • Burr

        He left the door open because he has no other options on another consistent place to wrestle right now, he’s no idiot, that is smart business on his part. For him to come out and actually say he resents them would do nothing to help his pull with getting more money from them. However to believe he doesn’t resent them quietly is completely ignorant. He just gave everything he had to a company for a decade and the company offered nearly half of what he was making from them and failed to make him a big enough star to even be considered for a mid card role in wwe. I haven’t always been against tna, but wake up, they’re a complete joke right now.

        • Frida Olsson

          I give her Dixie of credit in leading TNA to where it is today, they have gained more exposure with her ownership and has fans viewing TNA every week.I’m not worried about AJ, he knows where the majority of his fanbase is at, no other promotion can give him a better offer except for WWE..

          He hasn’t signed a contract with ROH for a reason, the man knows they’re a small promotion compared to TNA. Until now ROH haven’t be able to keep their stars. it’s why they lost, Eddie Aries, Danielson Richards Tyler Black,..

          You’re right, AJ was probably hurt by Dixie’s offer, but same time he’s a grown man and understands how the business works”. I’m sure he’ll be back within the company 3 to 4 months from now..

          • BigMike

            sorry but Dixie has been in the passenger seat on this journey of TNA. All she was doing was signing checks and that would have been fine but she has been and still is listening to the wrong people…. she thinks she is a Macmahon but she has no clue; all she has is a rich daddy. TNA is letting their real talent go one person at a time which is sad and STUPID. She does not reward loyalty; she could care less about anyone. She gets booed NOT because of her wannabe heel attempt, but she gets booed because she is soooooo bad at playing the role hse is laughabvle and gets booed because she just plain old SUCKS

          • Christen

            Yeah Dixie is leading TNA alright leading it into the ground. ROH is in a better state then TNA really. TNA can’t get a score over 1.0 and in tv ratings that is BAD shows get canceled for that. BTW Tyler Black is now Seth Rollins he left ROH because WWE saw potential in him he was signed to WWE. Now he is part of one of the hottest tag teams in the WWE. Something he wouldn’t have accomplished any where else.

      • jarredpaul

        His shoot interview suggests different things

  • Nostaljack

    …and the stupidity just continues. As Richard stated, she’s in no position to sign anyone. In fact, she likely ought to be letting workers go (think of it as being allowed to leave the Titanic rather than workers losing their jobs.) Jarrett was hardly doing amazing things without Dixie but at least he knows the business. Now, it’s just her. She seems a really sweet person but she’s in way over her head and she doesn’t get it. Anyone want to predict how long TNA lasts?

    P.S.: Where’s Eric Bischoff in all this? He only ran the company that almost put the WWE out of business. What is he doing? Is he doing anything?

    • WrestlingFan4Life

      Eric Bischoff? Really? Are you kidding me? It’s BECAUSE of Eric Bischoff that the WCW went out of business! That idiot wouldn’t know how to run a wrestling company if he had Vince McMahon telling him how to do it. Eric brought in The Shocker. Remember that moron? He tripped over camera cables on his way out to his debut. Eric was the one who went on live television and told the audience that the WWE was going to make Mick Foley its champion, thinking it would keep people from watching Raw if he spoiled it for them. All it did was drive everyone to Raw. That night was the beginning of the end for WCW. Everything Eric did (or didn’t do, as the case may be) led up to that night; that little move he pulled sealed his (and WCW’s) fate.

      • Nostaljack

        There’s some misinformation that I want to correct so, without any snark or bad intent, here goes: Eric wasn’t responsible for the Shockmaster gimmick in any way. The fact that it failed was all David Crockett’s fault. He was the one who placed the wooden beam on the wall that Shockmaster tripped over which made him fall. Ole Anderson voiced the character so if you didn’t like what Shockmaster said (I know I didn’t), that’s on him. It all led to one of the funniest clips in all of wrestling but Eric had nothing to do with it.

        Secondly, WCW didn’t fail because of Eric either – at least not directly. WCW failed because of a merger between Time Warner and AOL. Once that merger took place, those holding the cards in AOL Time Warner began to assert themselves in the booking of the show and in other ways, tying everyone’s hands and making life more difficult for all involved. Did Eric spend too much money? Definitely. Was the atmosphere toxic to the mid-card and lower-card. Yeah. Was it too much of a party backstage? Yeah. The numbers were up, though, and all this was going on while WCW was beating WWE in the ratings. This toxicity was working to their benefit.

        Third, Eric is also not responsible for going live and telling everyone that Mick was going to win the WWE belt; Tony Schiavone did that. The clip is likely on YouTube of Tony saying it. Tony says he was coached and maybe he was but those were his words. He spoke like that naturally anyway so it makes sense that he’d say that. Anway, WCW started going downhill ratings-wise after Eric had already left and Vince Russo took over.

        • WrestlingFan4Life

          I stand corrected. You are obviously a much better informed fan than I. Please accept my humblest apologies.

          • Nostaljack

            I am honored that you recognize my superior wrestling intellect. In an effort to save the balance of your day from the misery it would otherwise be marred by, I accept your most humble of apologies.

          • WrestlingFan4Life

            Based on this response to my sincere apology, I have come to the conclusion that you need to add three letters to the end of your user name: “ass”.

          • Nostaljack

            Oh I was kidding…LOL! Calm down, Eunice.

        • BigMike

          It was not all Eric’s fault in WCW but he was the boss and he was given a blank checkbook to spend all he could and HE is the one who allowed it to get out of control and losing all the money; THEN the merger happened and they were going to lose TV so VKM bought them out smart on his part for the archives but VKM and WWF/E NEED real competition and TNA under Dixie is not going to do that… Let Jim COrnette run a wrestling promotion and give it TV and within 2 years they would be competition because Cornette is awesome as long as he has the right people around him to tell him when to slow down

    • live1213

      She let anyone else go ROH will b bigger.

      • Nostaljack

        ROH is hampered by a TV deal that doesn’t go everywhere. I’m in the DMV and, were I so inclined (I’m not), I can’t watch ROH. I’d be forced to pay them and watch it on their site. I tried that for a while but I just couldn’t get into it. Anyway, I don’t think anyone really stands to benefit from TNA’s mistakes. The tape library is really only attractive for filling in blanks in Sting’s, Angle’s, RVD’s, and maybe Hardy’s careers.

    • Frida Olsson

      Lets talk Jeff Jarrett, guess who’s the one who book the ending for this weeks impact episode?Here’s a hint the man left TNA Wrestling this month for Toby Keith . you see what you saw took place while Jarrett was in charge of the booking. that is until he decided to leave. Now here comes the funny part. IWC blames Dixie when it was Jarrett fault..

      • BigMike

        oh so JJ books ONE time and everything Dixie has done is all his fault? to quote the Miz….. “really? Really? REALLY?” BTW how much is DUmbass Dixie paying you to kiss her ass?

      • Christen

        Oh hun you are so blinded by Dixie’s stupidity it is sad. TNA’s state right now is not the fault of Jeff Jarrett. Before Dixie Carter’s father bought then handed her the company Jeff Jarrett and his brother owned it. The company at that time was great it could of compete with WWE. But then Dixie got a hold of it and she has no clue about wrestling at all. She ran the company into the ground she has lost so much money she has wasted so much money it isn’t even money. Also Dixie hired Eric Bischoff the man who killed WCW and Hulk Hogan thinking it would bring viewers. Dixie made so many bad choices that her own father had to reach out to Jeff Jarrett and his family for help because his daughter is ruining the company. Jeff Jarrett left TNA last month because of what Dixie did. It is not all Jeff Jarrett it is Dixie Carter because she is clueless about wrestling. TNA is lucky Spike tv don’t really care about the ratings they just want TNA to keep paying them. Because if it was any other network with the ratings they been getting 1.0 and below would of dumped TNA long time ago.

        • josh

          Um you do realize Dixie bought TNA in 2002…you’re making it sound like she got it and then right away hired Hogan

          • Christen

            One Dixie didn’t buy TNA her father did and he gave her the company. 2. I didn’t say she hired Hogan and Bischoff right away. So please don’t twist my words around thank you

      • jarredpaul

        He didn’t just leave because of Toby Keith. Why don’t you either (A) stop being a troll or (B) get your head out of Dixie’s ass

  • live1213

    Well, all I know that hi rating they got will crumble fast if they don’t find a new guy to bring in EC3 has good upside, but not enough Shelton B, or Jonny Morrison better be on the phone. ps. can her father hire her a marketing guy or advisor to help her?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      The sad thing is Dixie has a marketing degree…

    • BigMike

      EC3 was so bad and unentertaining he was not even capable of hanging in NXT and yet he is treated like the second coming in TNA …… WTF? yeah build a company on idiots like Bateman/EC3, Brokeback who just stink up the place EVERYTIME they are on the mic or/and in the ring and she has the people with belts or goingto put titles on them? she is clueless

  • Tim

    Dixie carter is old just saying.

    • josh

      Vince is older.

      • Tim

        And Vince is actually entertaining.

  • BigMike

    she is still one clueless bitch who is wasting daddy’s money
