Older TNA wrestlers mad at Dixie Carter?

New, comments



What could Dixie Carter, owner of TNA, have said that would piss off so many veterans in the company?

So Dixie Carter held a meeting backstage last week at the TNA Impact tv taping, announcing TNA's new three year contract with Spike TV. During said meeting, Dixie brought up a few points, which basically sounded like everything a manager type would bring up at any business meeting. Lots of strategery and such. Well, that's also when she said, "I also want to see a little more effort in the ring from some of you." From all reports, she didn't say this pointedly or snidely, just a "pick up the slack" type thing.

If there is one thing you don't tell a 40 year old wrestler about, it's what to do in a ring. Rumor has it that all the veteran types thought that since she didn't have any in-ring experience, only signing-their-checks experience, she had no business telling them how to do their jobs. No one mentioned the fact that most of them would be selling autographs in a flea market somewhere if it wasn't for TNA.
