— As seen on Thursday’s episode of iMPACT!, TNA President Dixie Carter addressed the numerous changes made by the company in recent weeks to the talent roster. One TNA wrestler has gone on record with his thoughts regarding her speech. Here is what he told Mike Aldren of the Wrestling Globe Newsletter: “I have no idea why Dixie wanted that to air. She sounded terrified. After the meeting there were a lot of guys rolling their eyes. This locker room isn’t one big happy family as [Dixie] wants us to portray publicly. Everyone is divided over the idea of Hogan coming in, and not in a good way.”
