Dixie Carter Q&A – Goldberg/TNA, Rampage, Mo, More

Dixie Carter posted the following to Twitter as some of her first answers to the #AskDixie Q&A she solicited:

On her reaction to receiving so many negative questions: “I have no problem with negative comments or constructive criticism, but the outrageous posts and bad language are a totally a different thing … especially with so many children paying attention on social media.”

On whether or not she forces talent to tweet about other talents’ projects: ” It’s very important for TNA talent to support each other and their individual separate projects outside of wrestling. They’ve supported EY with his Animal Planet show, Mickie James with her music, Gail Kim with her wedding TV special, etc. I think it’s great that we all support each other!”

On criticism that signing Rampage overshadowed King Mo in TNA: “We underestimated how long it would take Mo to recover from the complications he had following surgery. By the time he was cleared to wrestle, he had to start training for his upcoming fights. Rampage will fight a few major PPV events for Bellator, while King Mo is fighting more frequently in the tournaments. Hopefully, Mo will start training again right after his title fight, and we will see him in the ring soon.”

On complaints that TNA is signing too many MMA fighters: “People forget that King Mo is a wrestler, first and foremost. He won multiple medals (several gold medals) in The World Cup, Pan American Championships and US Championships, and a Division I All American. Rampage began his career as a wrestler, too. Rampage is a film star — both have big personalities, successful MMA careers and substantial national media attention within the sports world. They’ve never worked for our competitor , and they both want to do whatever it takes to dominate professional wrestling. I’m open to anyone who fits that bill. And, the fact that Bellator CEO Björn Rebney and I can work together and cross-promote is a great added benefit for Impact exposure outside of wrestling.”

On whether or not TNA scouts international talent: “Absolutely! As a matter of fact, right now we are looking closely at several wrestlers to be on IMPACT from countries that have never been represented on the show before. Stay tuned!”

On fan interaction at the upcoming UK Tour: “Our UK promoters will announce details for Fan InterAction this month, and you will hear from me beforehand on ways to get a jump on being the first to purchase tickets.”

On another TNA game and if the company will ever sign Bill Goldberg: “I hope so! Our first game sold over one million copies worldwide. We are hopeful we’ll find the right partner for another video game soon. And regarding Bill, he is a great talent. We would love to work with him one day.”

    I like her answer to the negative comments regarding MMA fighters coming along. People probably rolled their eyes at the idea of Kurt Angle coming into pro wrestling, but that turned out pretty darn well. Football players have a history of coming into pro wrestlng (Goldberg, for instance) and they typically have little to no wrestling background, unless it was back in grade school. Meanwhile, guys like Rampage and King Mo are professional fighters, and in their cases, started as great wrestlers.

      Rampage Jackson is a film star? One unsuccessful film does not a film star make.

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      The thing is, as far as them being wrestlers they don't seem to have that spark from what I seen. Kurt Angle had that from the get go, even at his first appearance he went big with it. Kurt Angle had that talent to be a wrestler in this business, SB and CH had it too, even Jack Swagger does. The bigger problem is, that I haven't seen the same thing from either of the two currently signed, King Mo especially. When Angle first appeared for WWE I didn't see him as just an Olympic medalist, he gave off that feeling of being a wrestler.

      • Peckar says:

        Kurt Angle was trained a long time before he even entered the ring. Given the notoriety of the two, I would wait and see how they evolve before shooting them down even before they have had a match.

    • Bigmike885 says:

      one big big difference..the guys you mentioned (angle Goldberg) dedicated themselves to this..they trained for professional wrestling before they went into the ring. All of these guys are using TNA for their MMA fights..thats it…they have no desieres to be Professional wrestlers…

      • ricky_No1 says:

        Yes that is correct my friend. Jackson just looks like he dont even want to be there in the ring. Easy pay day for him.

  2. Kevin says:

    I know OVW has an Australian wrestler there. I don’t know if he is even in the sights of TNAa though

  3. Goeroe1981 says:

    I don't like the answer she gives for multiple reasons. Yes Kurt did too, but he was totaly focussed on wrestling. King Mo has allready got another job. Also if he is an actor he isn't exactly a good one like Nicolas Cage. He didn;t make great films maybe just movies like the Rock (who even has more talent) where all he needs to do is look though. I can't see him do a role other then tough. A good actor can play more then one type of role. And if he is such a good actor why does he look lost in impact wrestling? Dixie is defending very bad choice making and tries to cover it up. I can allready name about 10 names better to sign and spent your money on then rampage or King Mo.

    And then second if i hear on a wrestling programm i'm not the 99% you never heard of i think instantly: Goldberg, Orton, Austin, Rock and not someone who i don;t know like what i guess will be Ortiz. I don;t care how tough he is, he is not worth the hype in the world of wrestling he did shit except referee. I don;t care about MMA. You're better of signing Rubix. He is awesome and more important a wrestler who should allready be on the roster a long time ago. (glad to hear their working on that now)

    Over a million copies sold ?
    That's actually extremely impressive!

    • Whatever says:

      Yeah and over a million disappointed gamers due to lousy controls and horrible graphics and game play and lame game modes

      • Goeroe1981 says:

        Not hard if in Europe you can pick the game up for 7euro' (about 8 bucks). And indeed it was very disappointing.

        And i know i will get thumbs down and i don't care but TNA makes mistakes. Not one of the storylines the last few years lead to something and are being cut as fast as they begin. Dixie has not enough experience and the people that should be helping her are getting friends involved whether its good for TNA or not. All the fired staff and wrestlers wouldn;t be if she knows what she is doing.

    • Bigmike885 says:

      where there is over 1 billion video gamers out there..not so much…and how many of this copies where made a full price?

  5. whatsup121 says:

    The story mode on the TNA game wasn’t a

    Bad idea to bad it was only focused on one

    Wrestler SUSICIDE

  6. Blood Runs Cold says:

    I wonder if talks with Activision are still going on or if they are looking elsewhere? Would have loved to see them sigh with 2K before WWE did.

    • Bigmike885 says:

      well considering WWE 2k14 probably has as many pre-sales (at full price mind you) then the 1st tna game sold through its whole sure the company is glad that didn't happen
