Dixie Carter was on Hawksbee and Jacobs over in the United Kingdom to promote TNA Wrestling’s 2014 Maximum Impact Tour.
Dixie was asked to name the company’s top star and she specifically mentioned Hulk Hogan, Jeff Hardy, Kurt Angle, Bully Ray and AJ Styles. She put over their deep roster of talent.
Performance-enhancing drugs were brought up. Dixie condemned their usage, unapologetically stating her stance:
“If you can’t look great naturally then you don’t deserve to look great.”
She said she voluntarily testified before Congress in the United States about this issue and that TNA “tests their guys regularly.”
When asked about NBA player Jason Collins coming out as homosexual, Carter was asked about wrestling being a “macho” world. Dixie said they’ve had one openly-homosexual wrestler and it was part of his character (I’m assuming she was talking about Orlando Jordan unless there’s someone I’m forgetting about). Dixie said she knows they’ve had others as well. She said it was fine and didn’t change anyone’s perception about that person.
“These are guys in little tights and you know, wrestling all around and everything else. You would think if it would bother anybody, it would be in wrestling versus, you know, on a football field kicking the ball.”
Dixie Carter said her first job was to write the bid for Dallas to get the World Cup Games.
