Dixie Carter on Returning to Impact Zone, Name Change & More

The Bleacher Report published an interview with TNA President Dixie Carter. Here are some highlights.

If the Impact Zone is closed for good: “I would love to do another show there, and let [the touring “Impact Wrestling”] be our primary brand. I would love to look into something like that. They were really good to us. Universal was a great partner. Great partner. You have 30 million people a year going through those turnstiles for both those parks, our exposures were everywhere, our logo was everywhere, we’re in maps, we’re in hotel guides, it was great. They were fabulous.”

If they want to change the name of TNA: “I think at some point—but, you know, there was a lot vested, unfortunately, after a certain period of time, you have brand equity into something. But the show, we did change it to Impact Wrestling, and now we’ll have Xplosion and we’ll have different things under that umbrella.”

If TNA has lived up to its potential: “Not yet… I always want more. I don’t get satisfied very easy. You always want more. We’re getting there. I feel the momentum, and I’m very happy with that.”

  • I’m starting to enjoy Impact, but nobody outside of wrestling is going to take them seriously, with the letters TNA as the company name. Everybody always thinks the same thing when they hear TNA, and it is not Total Nonstop Action.
