Dixie Carter talks name recognition, new TV deal, Ring Ka King, more



Dixie Carter was interviewed by The Miami Herald. Here a few highlights:

Carter on the new television deal with Spike TV: “When it came down to it, I just said, ‘If we’re going to do this, let’s make it simple, and let’s do it fast,’ and it happened that way. If not, we were going to need to go and do other things. So it was a quick negotiation… There are discussions about [other programming], but we made the decision to keep it out of this deal. We’ve closed this deal and moved forward, and any additional programming that we do would be under a separate arrangement.”

Carter on Ring Ka King: “It’s going good. We’re on a network that the timeslot is probably not best for wrestling, and we’ve had a lot of serious competition. So we knew it was going to be tough going in, but it’s been very well received, and I think there’s a very strong opportunity for Ring Ka King to continue to be seen in India.”

Carter on name recognition: “Spike understands the value of a Bobby Roode and a James Storm and a Bully Ray and an Austin Aries, but some of the networks that don’t have the experience in wrestling, the history and background, those [legends] names do mean a lot.”

    With negotiation skills like that I see why TNA is doing so damn well.

    Does anyone who really knows this business give a damn about what dixie carter has to say? She doesn’t carry any weight in this industry and still won’t when tna goes down for the final count.
