TNA released a kayfabe injury update on Dixie Carter following the airing of the spot where Bully Ray power bombed her through a table on this week's episode of Impact Wrestling. Rather than try to recap a kayfabe report, I'll provide the original text in its entirety:

As IMPACT WRESTLING went off the air medics continued working on Dixie, carefully moving her from the ring to the backstage area. She was cleared for release yet her condition deteriorated throughout the night.

On further evaluation Dixie was sent to the Emergency Room at Centennial Hospital, where she was immediately seen by an orthopedic surgeon, neurologist and radiologist. Following numerous tests and scans, X-rays reveal and an MRI confirms Dixie has L2 and L3 Transverse Process Fractures, as well as a hairline rib fracture.

Dixie has been released from the hospital and is back home in Nashville resting uncomfortably.

As we reported here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com, Carter was legitimately injured on the spot but wouldn't provide a specific update until the spot aired. Perhaps this is the reason why. In reality, she was so shaken up from the spot she was unable to attend the taping the following night. The spot was taped on Thursday, June 27, 2014 and Carter was absent from the taping on Friday, June 28, 2014.

TNA is using the spot to write her out of storylines indefinitely. Following along with the storyline, Carter "blacked out" her Twitter profile picture and cover image.
