Backstage News: Dixie Carter Steps Up, Annoys Some Talent

Matt Boone

According to, Dixie Carter took more control and was being more authoritative than ever before at the last iMPACT! tapings in Orlando. Apparently a meeting was held before the tapings to announce the new Spike TV deal, as well as announce a big party that would be held later that night to celebrate.

While that was all and well, some wrestlers were reportedly annoyed when during the meeting, Dixie gave a lecture about how talent needs to improve their in-ring work. Despite being majority owner, many felt as though she was speaking out of school with no knowledge on what she was talking about. Others felt it was well-intentioned and that she was basically implying that the veteran talent should be working more with the younger wrestlers.
