5 most controversial backstage moments in TNA history
#4 Major problems under Dixie Carter’s leadership
Throughout her time with TNA, Dixie Carter has been a magnet for controversy. People have accused her of everything from having absolutely zero experience in dealing with any business of any kinds, much less a wrestling promotion, to using her parents’ money to fund a boondoggle. But these were nothing more than vocal criticisms for a long time, nothing more…until the lawsuits started happening.
As far back as 2011, there were reports speculating that Dixie Carter would step down as president of TNA Wrestling. These reports surfaced amidst allegations of sexual harassment lawsuits filed against TNA, high-profile allegations of lack of medical coverage for staff, and multiple complaints to the Better Business Bureau, a watchdog organisation that oversees complaints made against private companies.
The heat on Carter over these backstage controversies was so severe that she had to ‘go into hiding’ for a time until they blew over. Sadly, this was only a harbinger of even more problems that would arise in the following years.
