Dixie Carter comments on Sting, Impact live, six sided ring, more



In a Q&A posted on impactwrestling.com, TNA President Dixie Carter answered questions she received via Twitter.

Carter asked about the name changed to Impact wrestling, “The show has always been called Impact. But as we grew the TNA corporate brand beyond Impact, we felt it was important (and the time) to let Impact stand on it’s own. It’s still under the TNA banner, it’s still the TNA World Heavyweight Title, but the show name is Impact Wrestling,” she said.

She was asked about making Impact a weekly live show, “I would love Impact to be live each week, but it’s a matter of economics. As far as wrestling news sites are concerned, if you want to be surprised then people should not read them. If people choose to, they certainly shouldn’t judge anything based upon one persons opinion, good or bad. The few times I have seen a spoiler, they always tell a limited, one-dimensional side of a story, and usually a very biased one at that,” Carter commented.

A TNA fan asked about retaining Sting for another year, “I sure hope so. In the past, I have had to convince him to not hang up his boots for one more year. But this year, I think he is more motivated and excited than ever. He truly is an icon and has had a remarkable year. I am so proud of him,” said Carter.

On the subject on the six sided ring, Carter said, “I liked us using the 6-sided ring for our X Division Pay-Per-View, “Destination X”, this year. We should do that every year, but at this time, there are no plans to bring it back as our permanent ring.”

    the whole company should be “Impact Wrestling”

    It doesn’t sound Stupid IMO.
    WWE/F RAW / RAW is WAR / RAWZone/WARZone
    WWE/F Smackdown
    WCW Nitro
    WCW Thunder
    ECW Hardcore TV
    TNA Xplosion
    TNA Impact Wrestling

    It is a bit confusing after all this time and Hogan and Bischoff were pushing the company as Impact Wrestling rather than TNA. Each time someone from upper management speaks it seems like they all are on separate pages in TNA/Impact Wrestling.

    U guys have valid points, its ok that its called impact wrestling. But the way they push it confuses people. Tna is a mess though. They will never compete.
