In 2010 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, rich, spoiled, egotistical idiot who doesn’t know how to properly manage or motivate her employees.
“When you question things in this company, you’re questioning me… and I cannot allow that to happen”.
Would you want to work for a woman like this?
Would a speech like this make you feel motivated, or unmotivated about your job?
This isn’t a motivational speech. It’s an unmotivational speech. It makes you feel even more discouraged and pessimistic after it’s over!
Vince McMahon would never give a speech like this, and even if he did he would not be stupid enough to air it on national television.
Dixie lost the trust of her employees over 5 years ago.
No wonder TNA is in the situation it’s in right now.
