Stipulation in New TNA Wrestling Contract Eliminates Dixie Carter as Chairman

You could say she tagged herself out.


TNA Wrestling - which sucked so much that Spike TV dropped it (yes, the Same Spike  that airs MANswers) - finally announced that Dixie Carter would be stepping down as the Chairman of the beleaguered organization.

TNA, which I haven't been able to watch since it jumped to one of those channels that's only available on the top tier level of DirectTV, was "96% pure shit" in 2016 according to most of the internet forum discussions I have read. With most viewers admitting that "Outside of Matt Hardy, TNA isn't even worth the time it takes to type their name into YouTube.*"




In a press statement released yesterday, Anthem Sports & Entertainment announced that it will be acquiring a majority interest in, and thereby taking control of TNA Impact Wrestling. To this end, the company created a new arm, Anthem Wrestling Exhibitions, LLC, with company EVP Ed Nordholm serving as the arm's president. As part of the deal, Dixie Carter will be resigning as TNA Chairman, and will remain as one of the promotion's minor equity stakeholders.

This news - which should be tagged as "It's About Damn Time" - comes on the heels of a 2016 that saw " question[ing] whether TNA could stay around for the new year, given all the financial, organizational, and manpower-related issues." Inquisitr continues:

...but with 2017 just having started, the promotion is still around, albeit without Dixie Carter in her usual role as TNA Chairman.

As to any follow up questions such as "Who will replace Carter?" have not yet been answered but, again according to Inquisitr:

Cageside Seats noted that former owner Jeff Jarrett is still in talks with Anthem, in hopes of returning to TNA "in some capacity." A separate article from Cageside Seats also discussed rumors that Dutch Mantell, who was previously employed by WWE as Jack Swagger, Cesaro, and Alberto Del Rio's manager Zeb Colter, may be joining TNA's management team, possibly as part of the promotion's creative unit.

So, there's that.

About the Author - GHERU

RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
