Dixie Carter Says That WWE is “After our Talent”

Dixie Carter


The AP spoke with Dixie Carter, Ethan Carter III and more about TNA’s debut on Pop TV. Check out the highlights:

Carter on WWE signing their former talent: “We’ve always been criticized about taking WWE talent and I think it’s pretty interesting how the roles have been reversed. Our competitors, our competition have been after our talent.”

Carter on James Storm returning to TNA: “A lot of times they come back. The grass isn’t always greener and what we have here is very special.”

EC3 on the TNA roster: “As far as competing head on with WWE, they’re top dog in the game. We need to provide an alternative and focus on ourselves. I don’t think signing big names in wrestling is what fans are interested in as much as seeing new characters develop into something out of nothing.”

Pop TV’s Brad Schwartz on having wrestling on the network: “We celebrate pop culture and we love wrestling as opposed to snarkily pointing at it…This is an event that just 12 months ago was doing 1.3 million viewers every week on Spike. It’s something you have to watch every week. It’s appointment TV. It’s not something you can watch on Netflix three years from now.”
