PostSubject: Vince Russo Talks Dixie Carter’s Character & Confirms Which Former WWE Personality Was Once In Talks With TNA   Wed Jul 29, 2015 1:08 pm

Vince Russo has a new blog on CSRWrestling.com. The former creative writer talks about why if you’re inept at running a business, would you make your “character” inept. He is referring to Dixie Carter and looks at the history of her running the company. He also reveals what former WWE name was in serious talks with TNA. The following is a sample:

Dixie Carter was never cut out to run a professional wrestling company. Anybody who has ever worked under her would matter-of-factly tell you that. I will even go as far as to say that I don’t think that any talent who ever signed a contract with TNA felt the least bit confident that Dixie had a clue to what she was doing. And, that inability to lead—due to her failure to make decisions based on her own lack of self-confidence—is quickly leading to her, and TNA’s eventual demise. Sure, her company has had a good 13 year run in spite of her total lack of expertise when it comes to sports-entertainment, but parents with deep pockets will tend to keep you in the game perhaps a bit longer than you deserve to be.

And here’s the deal–what I just stated was not a slight at Dixie. If I were put in charge of TNA to run the day-to-day operations—I would have sunk that ship long before she did. That job description wouldn’t even be close to my skill set. However, the only difference is that I would have clearly understand, recognized and accepted my limitations, and then hired those who had the know-how and knowledge to help me.

Prior to Eric Bischoff coming into the company, there were serious talks of Jim Ross joining TNA. I know, because I personally spent a couple of hours with Jim on the phone at the time. During those discussions JR even visited the Carter Ranch in Texas, where Bob and Janice Carter absolutely fell in love with him. Unfortunately, the marriage of JR and TNA never took place. And, looking back in hindsight—that one missed opportunity may have been a crucial factor of where TNA is today. In the end, I think Dixie’s ego wouldn’t allow JR to come in and run her company—even if it meant her company gaining credibility and becoming healthy. Now you might point to the illusion that she allowed Eric Bischoff to come in and do what JR was “supposed” to do—but that is far from the truth. Eric simply came in as part of the Hulk Hogan deal–which he and the Hulkster together masterly crafted. Eric was never supposed to get the power in which he eventually mustered while he was there, it was basically–if you want Hulk–then I’m coming along as well.

Russo is right. Dixie is bad at her job. She should have fired Russo's ass a week or two after Panda Oil bought TNA.

I think she legitimately tries her best and cares very much about the company...but she isn't the best for it, dure to not being a wrestling person.

She does need people round her that have a clue, which is easier said than done.
