- TNA Wrestling announced on Friday that Kurt Angle will join members of the band One Direction on Saturday for the global 1D Day event. Angle joins Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan, Celine Dion, Robbie Williams and The Muppets, to be featured during the seven-hour live stream, which fans can view and participate in via the One Direction YouTube channel.
- TNA also issued a press release on Sports Illustrated’s feature piece on Dixie Carter. The piece covered a lot of ground as I made several notes on it. Below is the statement Carter issued about it:
“When people think of who I am, they usually think about who I come across as on TV, not the mother and businesswoman,” says TNA President Dixie Carter. “I am excited readers have an opportunity to get an in-depth look at not only how TNA was built from the ground up, but also a look at the bright future ahead. In the process they will also gain insight into the real Dixie Carter.”
