There are two very different, very major stories making rounds about TNA Wrestling. One is bleak and full of pessimism, while the other is bright and full of optimism. The question is, what is the truth?
That’s what many are asking following Dixie Carter’s feature article that was published by Loretta Hunt of Sports Illustrated on Thursday (See also – Welcome to Dixieland: A look at pro wrestling’s female boss). The article, which we recapped here, is getting widespread attention from all parties involved.
Some are accusing Carter of lying, while others are praising her for finally addressing what is really going on behind-the-scenes in TNA Wrestling. So who are we supposed to believe? The president of a company trying to rejuvenate her talent roster and grow her business or the pessimists analyzing every move?
As with most stories, I think the truth is found in the middle. There are some points that I want to make note of and just start the discussion. My goal is to analyze the argument and present the facts. I want to inject some opinion but I also want to hear from others. So let’s start with what we know.
