Post-TNA Press Conference with Russo, Dixie, Jeff
The 30 minute post-TNA press conference from last night can be seen at:
First Q&A guest is Vince Russo:
Q: How do you think the show went?
Russo thinks it’s up for the fans to decide and not up to him.
Q: Do you feel slighted that Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan are at TNA?
Russo says he came to TNA to do his job. Dixie Carter is his boss. He did his job tonight and he is not the least bit slighted
Q: Any stand out moments or moments you thought were particularly impressive?
Russo says that is not for him to decide but for viewers who watch the show.
Q: Were you tempted at all to do armchair quarterbacking?
Russo said no question he can armchair quarterback all night, but he doesn’t get paid to do that so he will keep his opinion to himself
Q: Is there a certain rating you are looking for?
Russo said this was the first time TNA went head to head against Raw. Who knows what to expect. At the end of the day, the fans get the final say.
Q: Do you think the show tonight can compete with the WWE?
Russo pauses, and then said at this point, that is not his call.
– Don West plugs the Dixie Carter/Hulk Hogan $39.99 Tristar card. The host says they’d like to thank Don West. He was not scheduled nor do they have any questions for him.
Dixie Carter is next.
Q: How do you think the show went?
Dixie says she feels great. She says you can tell it was going to be a historic night for wrestling fans. She is very proud for the amazing talent and the company.
Q: Any particular stand out moment?
Dixie says it was one thing/surprise/amazing exhibit of talent after another. She says it was magic. Overall, she was very happy with what happened.
