Dixie Carter Out As President Of TNA, Replaced By Billy Corgan


Maybe this changes things but given that it’s TNA, I’ll need to see something before I buy into the hype.  Corgan at least has money, but I continue to wonder how much is going to be pumped into TNA before the investors give up because they’re drawing 350,000 people in a great week.

    Does Impact still look like a house show?

    She had Paul Heyman and maybe Jim Ross after that job (I can’t remember if that was a false rumor or not) and she gives it to this guy? Oy vey.

    They were both false rumors.

    Paul Heyman is too busy with his tv show in the making and Jim Ross flat our denied and bashed it.

    Greg Reply:

    Paul Heyman was not a rumor. He did an interview and explained what his plan and demands were. He said it was really close to being a done deal.

    Daniel Bryan was going to be brought in (he was just fired) and made the focus of the brand. He was going to ax everyone over 40 (except for one or two at most). Bring in a ton of younger guys. Do a 5 year plan and then hand the company back over and retire. His plan was to leave the company in a good place so someone else could handle it without problem. He wanted to change how the company was presented. Change course. Be different from WWE and follow more what the market wanted.

    I don’t know if he would have been great or not but it definitely would have been better than Russo/Hogan running things. This was back in 2010.

    And that’s why you don’t give Paul Heyman control.

    Wouldn’t that also mean the firing of Kurt Angle, who mind you was their biggest star back in the day?

    I think Paul’s got a decent mind for the business, it’s just that some of his ideas tend to cater too much for the IWC. Now that’s not to say it’s a bad thing, but the internet can be a poor indictor of reality sometimes.

    Greg Reply:

    Actually no, he was going to be kept. He was going to do a long term storyline that led to Bryan beating Angle.

    Regardless they may have been big at the time, but look what happened long term. TNA built almost no one new and kept using diminishing old names.

    Greg Reply:

    Heyman shouldn’t be given financial control. I think he has a pretty good wrestling mind.

    I don’t know if his plan would have worked or not but when Russo is the alternative, I would have certainly tried.

    Maybe now they’ll finally stop plugging Dixie’s damn Twitter.
