More on Dixie Carter’s meeting with TNA talent last week

To follow up a previous report on Dixie Carter’s meeting with TNA talent before the Destination X show…

TNA President Dixie Carter and other members of management (TNA CFO/COO Dean Broadhead, Executive VP Andy Barton, and Jeff Jarrett) addressed the locker room, reports Carter noted that everyone is under evaluation and wouldn’t rule out additional cuts and added that the changes were being made for the long term health of the promotion.

Despite not being seen in TNA in quite awhile, Jarrett has maintained an involvement with the company, continuing to work out of his Nashville office. At one point, Jarrett was in charge of Gut Check.

Carter noted that some of the restructuring was being done due to the fact that the company spent a lot of money taping of the One Night Only pay-per-view events back in March. The company rushed the tapings because they wanted to complete them before their lease with Universal Studios in Orlando, FL was complete.

The overall tone of the message was considered upbeat, however, despite the positive vibe, there are still talents scrambling, seeking work elsewhere.

    Here’s my idea: Back to working Nashville events live, where the overhead is cheap and send the PPVs out monthly from larger markets. Re-sign the originals with sliding-scale contracts, so as TNA makes more $ so do the wrestlers. Reduce the roster to 30+/- guys & girls, send some folks to OVW and send a lot more home. Older guys need to build the young talent and promote longevity and identity or they are useless. It’s time to end the Bischoff/ Hogan experiment, Dixie needs to handle the day-to-day if she holds the purse-strings, trust her bookers & agents and surround herself with guys who want to put over the product, not themselves.

    tna need to focus on four belts the main title, x-title, tag-title and ko-title

    it needs to have a split roster between each belt, 15 main wrestlers, 15 x-wrestlers and around 10 ko-wrestlers, then the tag-teams can be wrestlers from each 30 of main and x wrestlers together

    they need to find a main fan band within the us and the world and hold main shows there and move out with smaller shows to other areas to start building

    tna need to gain wrestlers they can trust and know would stay with the company and star building great names

    tna need to start the right stories that fans want to see with great matches fans want to see, don’t just put stand alone stories either have some stories that inter-lock now and a again
