Three years ago, Dixie Carter addressed the entire TNA roster and essentially chewed them all out for not being good enough and told them that they needed to get behind her and her awesome leadership ability if TNA was ever going to go anywhere.
This wasn’t part of an angle or anything, either- they just aired it on TV thinking that it made for compelling television, I guess.
I think she meant it to be motivational and inspiring for the wrestlers.
Mostly it just made Dixie look like a whiney idiot who doesn’t know how to properly manage or motivate her employees.
She comes off like a rich, spoiled brat who is used to being endlessly praised by those around her.
She’s thrown into a position of power in a business she doesn’t understand (and apparently she’d never watched wrestling before she got this job), and she seems confused about why she’s not getting any respect from the wrestlers.
You can almost hear the wrestlers thinking “Who is this airhead and why am I working for a wrestling company where she is in charge?”.
Do you Crappers think she’s learned anything at all about the wrestling business or how to motivate people in the three years since this little “pep talk”?
Or is she, and TNA in the exact same place they were three years ago?
To be fair; Dixie isn’t the only problem in TNA, but she sure is one of the big ones…
