TNA President Answers Second Round of #AskDixie Questions; Defends Rampage Jackson & MMA Stars to Impact Wrestling

Dixie CarterTNA President Dixie Carter has answered the second round of #AskDixie questions, sent in by the fans, and posted them on the official website. Many of the questions were answered with typical corporate responses, promoting live events, social media and ways to watch Impact Wrestling, as you would expect. However, a few questions were answered candidly, including her thoughts on Rampage Jackson and other stars coming to Impact Wrestling.

"People forget that King Mo is a wrestler, first and foremost. He won multiple medals (several gold medals) in The World Cup, Pan American Championships and US Championships, and a Division I All American.  Rampage began his career as a wrestler, too.  Rampage is a film star — both have big personalities, successful MMA careers and substantial national media attention within the sports world. They’ve never worked for our competitor , and they both want to do whatever it takes to dominate professional wrestling.  I'm open to anyone who fits that bill.  And, the fact that  Bellator CEO Björn Rebney and I  can work together and cross-promote is a great added benefit for Impact exposure outside of wrestling."

Dixie also noted that she "would love to work with" Bill Goldberg, and updated the status of MMA fighter King Mo. 

"We underestimated how long it would take Mo to recover from the complications he had following surgery.  By the time he was cleared to wrestle, he had to start training for his upcoming fights.  Rampage will fight a few major PPV events for Bellator, while King Mo is fighting more frequently in the tournaments. Hopefully, Mo will start training again right after his title fight, and we will see him in the ring soon."
