Dixie Carter: When Will TNA's 'Major Changes' Occur?
Carter said she couldn't believe the response she got after she originally broke the news about the "major changes" earlier this summer, when she said she was so excited that she couldn't sleep. "I sent out a Tweet and I didn't think anything about it," she said. "I was like, 'Wow, I didn't really think that one through, did I?'"
Carter described the change as "progressive" – saying, "It's not a surprise. A lot of people say, 'Oh, she always says there's a big surprise and then there's not a surprise.' I've never said this is a surprise. I said it's a change," Carter told Jeremy Borash in a Q&A session. "So, on 10/7, that's when we'll start to unveil this change. There will be even more."
Carter was asked later if she could change anything about TNA – what would it be? She replied, "Do what I'm going to do on 10/7, but do it even bigger."
She also said that a top free agent recently sent out feelers about joining TNA. "There was a talent that we wanted very much a couple of years ago and pursued hard," Carter said. "I got a phone call a couple of days ago saying, 'You know, this person might be interested in coming to TNA.' And I go, 'I don't think we need him, but thank you, though, for thinking of us.' And it was just so interesting to me to go from so – I won't use the word desperate – but it was important that we had bigger stars to build around."
