Details from Dixie Carter’s Backstage Meeting at Last Night’s TNA Impact Tapings

Oct 4, 2016 - by Marc Middleton

Dixie Carter called a backstage meeting last night prior to TNA Impact Tapings in Orlando. PWInsider is reporting that Billy Corgan was also at the meeting, but didn’t speak. Dixie, who is still majority owner of the company, allowed talent to ask questions without fear of retaliation.

One talent asked about the rumors regarding WWE’s interest in purchasing the promotion. She says that she could have let that happen, but has not, and will not allow Vince McMahon to buy TNA. She also stated that TNA still owns their tape library, which is rumored to be the one thing WWE wants.

Another issue discussed was late payments to talents. Dixie stated that there are times when late payments were made and that is because the company is waiting for owed money to come in.

Regarding rumors of Bound For Glory being canceled last week, she said the show was never not going to happen but admitted that the company scrambled to make things happen leading up to this past Sunday’s pay-per-view.

Dixie made it clear that she’s still the majority owner but admitted that there has been in-fighting and a power struggle among other owners. Dixie was said to be surprised that everyone was so worried about the status of the company. She also apologized to everyone for the amount of worry and concern that was going around. After the meeting, some talents felt like she helped to ease some of their concerns and there was respect for her stepping up to address the locker room but there’s still a lot of worry about what the future holds.
