Dixie Carter on Returning to Impact Zone, Name Change & More

Posted by Matt Boone March 20, 2013 4 Comments

The Bleacher Report published an interview with TNA President Dixie Carter. Here are some highlights.

If the Impact Zone is closed for good: “I would love to do another show there, and let [the touring "Impact Wrestling"] be our primary brand. I would love to look into something like that. They were really good to us. Universal was a great partner. Great partner. You have 30 million people a year going through those turnstiles for both those parks, our exposures were everywhere, our logo was everywhere, we’re in maps, we’re in hotel guides, it was great. They were fabulous.”

If they want to change the name of TNA: “I think at some point—but, you know, there was a lot vested, unfortunately, after a certain period of time, you have brand equity into something. But the show, we did change it to Impact Wrestling, and now we’ll have Xplosion and we’ll have different things under that umbrella.”

If TNA has lived up to its potential: “Not yet… I always want more. I don’t get satisfied very easy. You always want more. We’re getting there. I feel the momentum, and I’m very happy with that.”

      If TNA has lived up to its potential: IT HAD Potential but happened. You Dixie let the virus of Hulk the self ego sentered Hogan & Eric the balls licking Bitchoff ruin TNA bringing in Rejects from WWE.

      Has TNA lived up to its potential? What a dumb question? It had tons of potential, but then they let Hulk Hogan come in and ruin everything.
