Dixie Carter Open To A WWE-TNA Cross-Over

Dixie Carter recently did an interview with Digital Spy in which she said she would be open to having TNA talent working a show with WWE wrestlers, but she doubts WWE would want to do it.

Trust us when we tell you – it’ll never happen.

    No way Vince wants people to see there is a federations with WAY better talent than what he puts out every week.

    "Trust us when we tell you – it’ll never happen."
    Really? how can that be? somebody stating the obvious there…

    I was thinking that The Shield would be a great choice for such a thing, imagine watching Slammiversary, it's Bully Ray vs Sting, we're about halfway through the match, suddenly "Sierra, Hotel, India, Echo, Lima, Delta. The Shield." The whole crowd wonders WTF? as do the commentators. Sting and Bully look into the crowd and sure enough it's Ambrose, Reigns an Rollins. They jump in the ring, knock down Bully, hit the triple powerbomb on Sting and head back to Bully Ray, the A&8s come out, The Shield retreats with big smiles on their faces. Maybe grab a mic, "welcome to justice." Then they leave.
    They randomly appear in ROH and other shows, WWE gets the footage, blurs out any mention of the other companies and puts it on tv.

    I'd enjoy watching that, but I do love The Shield.

      That sounds like total shit and I hope you stay the fuck away from the business as a whole.

      • Tiffanydude says:


      • DarkNexxus says:

        I wouldn't say total shit, but since it's a TNA event, when the shield hits the ring, the Aces and Eights show up, surround the ring to allow Sting and Bully a beat down on the shield, till they scamper from the ring and rush out of the crowd, then return later and attack Sting and Bully Ray 3 on 1 as they leave the building. That would seem more realistic.

        Course we could get lucky, Shield shows up, beats Hogan so badly, he's forced to retire and allow someone that know hows to book wrestling to take his place.

        Yeah, I know, keep dreaming. *sighs*

  3. Tiffanydude says:

    I would love to see it only if it weren't PG and if their Creative teams collabed, not let Vince rule over the story lines

  4. Jon says:

    Well duh, of course she would.

  5. OldManEaston says:

    Hey Dixie, who cares about WWE? Why is it always WWE? Why does TNA have to always be something in relation to WWE? Besides, It is simply not gonna happen. Vince has never played that game when he is on top and never will. The only time he did it was when he needed to use ECW to scrounge off of their counter culture, or to scrounge off of NWA talent. So it is completely silly.

    If you have a desire to do cross promotions, why not at least shoot for actually achievable goals like say ROH? If you wouldn't do a deal with ROH because you would think that it would be a deal in ROH's favor, why would you ever in your wildest dreams think that WWE would do the same with TNA? There is some great things that could be done by the likes of the American Wolves, ReDRagon, The Briscoes and Michel Elgin etc in a TNA ring. And in turn, how cool would it be to see someone like Austin Aries make his ROH return, or AJ Styles and Joe back after years away? Or for that matter Kurt Angle making his ROH debut in a company that prides itself on "pure" wrestling?

    It would also give TNA first crack at ROH talent, instead of WWE being allowed to cherry pick all of the stars over the last decade, while TNA gets Gutcheckers like Alex Silva, WHOOPEE!! Dixie seems so hung up on this idea of TNA being WWE's shadow, that is is amazing to me sometimes that we ever even got to see TNA work deals to bring in guys like Tanahashi or Speed Muscle for a few limited dates.

    • Bigmike885 says:

      I'm guessing this was a result of a question asked to her..I'd hope she didn't just blurt this'd make her soud kind of desperate.

    • JoeWrestling says:

      I don't think Dixie brought it up. It's not a big deal. Alex Silva is barely on the show, and hardly worth mentioning. ROH was doomed to go out of business since it was sold to Sinclair. Let alone the talent drain and bad production. It ultimately turns into, just the indy wrestlers WWE doesn't want. Sinclair won't keep it forever, and they will sell it to WWE.

  6. Bigmike885 says:

    of course Dixie would be open to'd give her company exposure that they don't currently have..she'd be stupid not to be open to it. Why would Vince want to do it? Most of TNA's top talent has spent at least some time in wouldn't bring anything really new or fresh as there's no way VKM would let any of TNA's top guys go over his guys..ever..

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      WWE's incentive is competition… Everyone in upper management has said a billion times before, that the business has grown stale without competition. When WWE has no one to compete with in the ratings, they have no reason to try harder. When the company is struggling to keep up with competition they begin coming up with better stuff, resulting in a better product. When there's no incentive to try harder, and no reason to worry about ratings, they begin to lack and the product just sucks as a result.

      • Bigmike885 says:

        There's a difference between competition and just handing the competition money and opportunity. McDonald's didn't hand Burger King free publicity.Sent from my iPhone

      • OldManEaston says:

        There is a difference between thriving off of competition and enabling it. Vince has been described as an animal that thrives off of BURYING competition. It is where he shines as a promoter. When he helped ECW it was not because he loved the product or felt that ECW was a good company for wrestling, (he didn't even know about them until they started to get a little bit of buzz). I believe it was Cornette (not sure) who said, Vince said "Bring me a presentation of everything about ECW". He did it because he wanted to use ECW to hurt WCW. When he cooperated with NWA territories to bring in guys like the Von Erichs and send out Andre, it was because it benefited him, with little regard to how it helped or hurt someone else. It is like some of the old bookers have said, when Vince wanted to borrow your talent (even though WWF was no longer affiliated with the NWA), you agreed, because he had the ability to just take them if he wanted to, and WOULD and DID!

    Aj vs Cena
    Abyss vs Kane
    Sting vs Undertaker
    Aries vs CM Punk
    Roode vs HHH
    Joe vs Brock
    Morgan vs Ryback
    Daniels vs Ziggler

    • Tiffanydude says:

      I would say Joey Ryan VS Ziggler, Robbie E vs Zack Ryder, Ryback Vs Rob Terry, Punk Vs Aries Vs Daniel Bryan

    • DarkNexxus says:

      Roode and Aries vs Dem Boys
      Bad influence vs TaDarius Tomas and ACH
      AJ Styles vs Mike Bennett
      Q.T.Marshall vs Robbie E
      Robbie T vs Michael Elgin
      Bully Ray vs Rhett Titus

      I won't say anything bad about WWE, I'm sure many of you are fans of that federation. I find the shows boring, repetitive, with obvious outcomes as of late. ROH and TNA still keep me guessing and do surprise me still. So I have high hopes for them. And the above list would be a card I'd love to see.

      • mrbirdy1 says:

        Bully Ray vs. Michael Elgin

        AJ Styles vs. Davey Richards

        Rhett Titus vs. Magnus

        QT Marshall vs. Eric Young

        Robbie E vs. Grizzly Redwood

        ReDRagon vs. Bad Influence

        The Briscoes vs. Team 3D

        Mike Bennett vs. Mr. Anderson

        Jeff Hardy vs. Eddie Edwards

        Book it!!

        • DarkNexxus says:

          You've booked Team 3d and Bully Ray in separate matches! Still, Kudos for the lineup. You picked up on a few I forgot about.

      • Bigmike885 says:

        see..problem with this is if you're going to do're doing it to bring in new fans and ratings…not a knock on ROH or TNA, but most people who watch either watch the other…so it wouldn't benefit be a fun show to watch sure

        • DarkNexxus says:

          Imagine if, in this dreamworld we call cross promotion, if every match was a three way and each federation had one wrestler per match. Could you imagine a match like Jeff Hardy vs Matt Hardy vs Christian, or swap Christian for say Kofi Kingston? Since all of them have some high flying abilities, it'd be a hell of a match. Line a card like that, and I'd find a way to get to that arena for the live show.

          • Bigmike885 says:

            All the matches you can come up with and you pick that one? Hahah. Jk. Cool conceptSent from my iPhone

          • DarkNexxus says:

            LOL Guess it's kinda lame, I'd still like to see it. But if I had to think about it. A. J. Styles vs Rhett Titus vs Fandango. Or Austin Aries vs Roderick Strong vs Cody Rhodes. I think these names are good examples of wrestling's future stars. Some of them already are, but I think that one day, these guys have what it takes to become household names.

  8. Treck says:

    Vince would only do it if it meant his company would be put way over. I hate everything Vince stands for and how he ruins wrestling. Wrestling fans of yesterday do not know other companies exist because Vince ruined it all. Now the majority think wrestling is only wwe.

    • Bigmike885 says:

      I agree. and disagree…Wrestling would still probably be a regional thing if it wasn't for Vince, WCW would have never existed..and TNA would never exist.

  9. Philly_Cheese says:

    Anybody who says this will never happen, doesn't know the business at all… Anyone remember when WWE actually helped out ECW when WCW began going under? They actually helped ECW get recognition to get onto a network, unfortunately Paul buried it by that point but they still did it to keep up competition. Despite what everyone thinks, I honestly believe people running WWE are hoping for competition from TNA so they can get the business to grow again.

    • Stunner says:

      This actually a TRUE statement however in my mind their is only one wrestler that could push TNA to the next level as it pertains to name recognition and that’s Randy Orton. If Orton ever goes to TNA and TNA can get solid storylines for each of their division with the allotted time to tell the story it’s going to be explosive again. I personally think WWE is to large for its own good! I like how TNA is taking steps in the right direction, the steps are slow however that’s good business sense in my mind. I think TNA is on the right path and if WWE is smart they would trim some of the FAT( other shows not needed) before it backs its self as a company too deep in the RED! The bottom line(financial statement ) will start to reflect the deep money pit that is already apparent . Hey this is just my opinion !

      • Bigmike885 says:

        as of now they turn a 3-400 millions dollar profit a unless it completely bottoms out..they're not going to go into the red anytime soon. They make money hand over fist from international markets…who sadly, don't mind the pg stuff..

        • Stunner says:

          Check the prices of a share of stock and that will tell where a company is Asti pertains to finances. WWE is still a company that has to pay out dividends to its stock holders. Stock prices don’t lie, just take a look a Facebook stock prices. The money your quoting is for reserves and a few elect members .

  10. DJBIGCG says:

    Vkm is definitely not going to do a cross over with tna. I mean why would he help a company that tried to sue his not to long ago

  11. NotCookz says:

    Not possible, TNA apparently doesn't exist in WWE's eyes.

  12. Cam says:

    Of course Dixie would be open to it, it would get TNA exposure. But let’s be honest, there’s more of a chance of it happening then lets say WCW/WWE show. Vince McMahon honestly doesn’t see TNA as a threat, their might be some in the office that do, but Vince doesn’t see them as a threat as he’s been against real competition and a real threat with WCW

  13. UCEAD11 says:

    WWE is not the same type of Product TNA is. TNA is for wrestlers.WWE is for performers. All of those combination of wrestlers above would not work. And it is funny how CM punk and Daniel Bryan have flourished in WWE where others have not so much> Because they are wrestlers who are forced to perform. Think about this. Brothers of Destruction….Beer Money. which one invokes more fun to watch. John Cena….AJ Styles. which face is more of a wrestler and more entertaining without their gimmick. Ryback ….. Rob Terry….which one has more potential to be something greater down the road. samoa joe had to go away from WWE to become who he is as a front runner. Austin Aries would not be who he is in the WWE. in conclusion, mixing the two would be like mixing oil and water.

    • josieamy says:

      I agree so much…I just wish tna would promote themselves more as pro wrestling, separating them from sports entertainment as much as possible.

    • Bigmike885 says:

      I do have couple arugments over cant compare BOD against beer money..they're different kinds of teams..Ryback/Rob terry..really?…Terrys been around what..3 years already and hasn't done have to give Ryback the same amount of time before you can judge. Cena/styles..are you really calling Styles the face of the company?..the way he's been promoted…say what you want about WWE, but when they truly get behind someone they push them non stop..TNA has never really seemed to truly TRULY get behind Styles…

  14. josieamy says:

    There should be one cross over and one cross over only . A two match series between sting and undertaker. Each winning one in their own respective companies. Do it now before they need wheel chairs

    • DarkNexxus says:

      And proving what? The old WCW fans, the current TNA fans are gonna swear that Sting will beat the Undertaker. WWE fans will say Undertaker will take Sting. So if they battle one on one for each promotion and they win in their respective promotions, what is proven? That the matchmakers know how to book it? The Icon vs Icon match would have to be held at a neutral federation, perhaps All Japan. No storylines, no buildups, schedule a match and let them go one on one till a winner is called. From the reports I've heard about the Undertaker as of late, he may not be up for that type of match anymore, Sting is still athletically capable, but gets a little brain addled in the ring nowadays. So I'd give the advantage to Sting.

      Unless Sting joins with (highly unlikely) WWE, or the Undertaker joins with (also highly unlikely) TNA, this match will never happen. And while it'd be a promoters dream booking match for the draw it'd get, and a fan's dream match of two of the biggest names in wrestling (note: I did not say THE biggest), it's a match none of us will ever see.

      Of course, you can always go into the WCW archives, see if Sting ever fought Mean Mark Callous one on one, then you'd see Sting vs the Undertaker, the very early years.

      • josieamy says:

        Yeh, it will never happen but I can dream. :) i agree, each company would want to see their guy win, and one win apiece wouldn't prove anything, but it would be good to see.

  15. TNA_fan says:

    If this was going to happen I want to see Sting and Abyss vs Kane and The Undertaker..

    That's the only match I would want to see..

  16. tsoutheast says:

    Its not going too happen. TNA would have to start drawing 2.5 million viewers to IMPACT for that to happen.

  17. Listentna says:

    Tna needs to start crossing over to roh and then other smaller promotions. Then wwe will take notice.
