Jeff Jarrett and new TNA President Ed Nordholm didn't pull any punches when discussing Dixie Carter's rather poor handling of TNA/Impact Wrestling when asked about it in an interview on Newsweek. For those of you that don't know, Dixie has been officially done with the company for a while now and the new ownership is firmly in control.
Jarrett: "It was a black-eye on the industry. It wasn’t fruitful for anyone—whether you’re a fan of, a wrestler, an employee. It was a really ugly, unfortunate situation. It wasn’t good for the industry."
Nordholm: "The buck has to stop someplace. The reality is the company got into a dire position and she was CEO. There was never any question [she wouldn’t be involved in the day-to-day operations], but not out of any particular animosity. If we’re going to invest...we’re owner-operators, we’re not passive investors. If we’re going to own it, we’re going to own it."
