As noted yesterday here on the website, TNA president Dixie Carter held a talent meeting yesterday afternoon in Orlando, Florida before the evening’s iMPACT! taping. She informed all talent that they must “tighten up” up their in-ring work and noted that they are essentially spoiled because they have the luxury of performing on a taped show which can be edited.
“Guys were fuming,” said one company source regarding her remarks.
On another note, there was no mention of Paul Heyman during the meeting as we noted yesterday here on the website. Talks between Heyman and Dixie Carter are continuing on a daily basis.
For what it’s worth, I was told late last night after the tapings that this week’s TNA iMPACT! is must-see TV. The Beer Money Inc. vs. Motor City Machine Guns match and the ending of the show was said to have been extremely well done. It’ll be interesting to see how things come across this Thursday night on SpikeTV at 9EST. The last month or so of iMPACT! have been really good shows.
