Dixie Carter Releases Statement to Fans

Posted by Matt Boone July 25, 2013 10 Comments

- TNA President Dixie Carter posted the following today:

Hi everyone,

In the 11+ years that I have been with TNA, I am still amazed by the passion of pro wrestling fans. That passion – both positive and negative – is remarkable and something that all of us at TNA values.

With that said, I asked for questions from you like I have done many times in the past, but I didn’t provide a timeframe by which I would answer you. I know I have frustrated you all, and I apologize. Beginning next week, each Thursday, I will answer legitimate questions from you on a weekly basis. I will not, however, address outrageous or hurtful questions/posts.

I also wanted to take this opportunity to provide perspective from inside TNA – where we stand and where, with support from our current and future fans around the globe, we are going. What is being shared with you now is what was shared with the IMPACT roster before our phenomenal Destination X show from Louisville, KY last week.

This has been a big year for TNA. We took IMPACT LIVE on the road, exactly where it needs to be – where you’ve asked us to be – in your backyard. We also changed our Pay-Per-View schedule, shifting from 12 to four live Pay-Per-View events each year, in order to increase the value of these events for you. To grow TNA, these are moves that needed to be made. And, part of changes like this, includes structural changes within TNA to align with this new business model.

Many of your comments and questions reference our recent roster changes. The relationship that fans have with wrestlers is unique and one of the many great aspects of the wrestling business. And, for this reason, releasing talent is never easy – not for you and not for us. But, bringing in fresh faces and the best wrestling talent in the world is what you expect, and what TNA will always strive to deliver. Recently, we have brought back some talent favorites (Sonjay Dutt, Petey Williams and Homicide), and you will continue to see this and new talent that we are excited to introduce you to in the coming months.

TNA has always been, and will continue to be, a place where you can interact with the superstars, whether in person at a live show or via social channels, like Twitter and Facebook. We are constantly exploring new and interesting ways to take this interaction to another level, and you will see this unfold in the coming months. I appreciate each of you taking the time to share your thoughts, opinions and ideas. Your input and feedback helps us create a better product. I hope you will join us when IMPACT LIVE comes to your area.

      tna sucks

      We need fresh faces in TNA for sure. Get rid of Hogan Sr. and Hogan tuts. Bischoff can stay as he is head creative at the moment and storylines wise TNA is doing fine so can’t blame EB right now. Get rid of Hogans ASAP.

    • read if you’re dumb

      Plain and simple go back and look at what you’ve done especially in 2006. Six sides/ original TNA STARS GETTING PUSHED. OH YEAH NO HOGANS OR BISCHOFFS RUINING TNA !!!!!!!!

      Hold on…so is the company called TNA or iMpactwrestling?

      • EvinH

        They have more or less dropped the TNA, I think it’s a gradual change-over from TNA Wrestling to TNA Impact Wrestling to eventually just Impact Wrestling :) well I think so, I may be wrong.

        • Orian

          That’s what I thought…but she says TNA in her statement.

    • sfa

      Ha maybe we’ll have another invasion storyline when TNA gets purchased.

    • Wrestling Jesus

      The funny thing is that if Hogan announced he was doing one last Wrestlemania with a top WWE star, 90% of WWE fans would mark out and PPV buy rates would be through the roof.
