Impact Wrestling News: Dixie Carter meets TNA inner circle in Nashville
What’s the story?
Former TNA owner Dixie Carter met promotional veterans (now-former Impact stars) and executives at Nashville.
In reference to her reunion with her ex-colleagues and employees, Carter took to social media to reveal it —
In case you didn’t know…
TNA was founded in 2002 by Jeff Jarrett, however, the former WCW’s star’s sponsors bailed from the project, which in turn almost led to the company shutting down.
It was at that critical time when Dixie Carter took over TNA’s ownership, guiding the promotion to new heights under her leadership.
The heart of the matter
Carter sold TNA/Impact Wrestling to Anthem a few months ago, but still remains a big-name figure in the professional wrestling community owing to the fame she gained during TNA’s heyday.
Besides, Carter apparently maintains a great camaraderie with most of her former employees— these workers being some of the sport’s biggest stars. Dixie was in Nashville, Tennessee when she happened to run into the TNA inner circle, namely Rockstar Spud, ‘Cowboy’ James Storm, Jeremy Borash, Bob Ryder and John Gaburick.
Dixie comes from the eminent Carter family, her father being one of America’s most prominent oil tycoons. She presently continues her odyssey as a businesswoman.
Meanwhile, TNA/Impact Wrestling has been letting go of several big-name stars—the details of which you can find HERE—with Anthem promising to usher in a new era for fans of the product.
As a huge fan of Dixie Carter, it’s somewhat bitter-sweet seeing her in the same frame as some of TNA’s old talent such as James Storm.
Dixie could’ve accomplished so much more in the professional wrestling business—given her tenacity and aculeate business sense—if only she’d been guided well by the executives who drove TNA into the ground. Here’s hoping the company returns to its former glory.
