It Came From YouTube: The #AskDixie debacle

12 Submitted by on Sun, 13 October 2013, 03:20

A few months ago TNA President Dixie Carter asked fans to tweet her questions using the hashtag #AskDixie.

What could possibly go wrong?

A lot!

A whole lot could, and did go wrong with this grand plan to be interactive with the snarky, angry internet wrestling fan community.

I almost kind of sort of maybe feel sorry for Dixie.

A little bit.

Anyway, the tweets she ended up getting were (for the most part) pretty funny and creative.

Enjoy!

    This is someone who was way in over their head from the start. If you didn’t see those bullets getting ready to be fired then you are clueless about who you are trying to sell your product to. “Maybe someone will ask me about my amazing job of recycling every awful angle of the past 20 years.” Well at least she’ll make for a great Smackdown GM in another year or two.

    I have to admit, I laughed at a lot of the ridiculous “questions” that were sent in, but the thing that sticks out most is how she addressed the situation by recognizing the attention seekers for what they did. “Hey, um, this was supposed to be a serious thing, so for you comedy clowns, thanks for ruining everything.”

    Best ever was Cornette showing up during a live Q and A after TNA fires him and asking Dixie point blank why she employs Russo and her response was basically “I swear the bad ideas aren’t him and if people keep changing Fire Russo I’m firing somebody not named Russo”

    I was a little disappointed that with the amount of jokes folk COULD have made at her (or her company’s) expense, they decided to just dive into the gutter marked “vile misogynism”…

      misogyny is the term I think you’re looking for.

      • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

        THey aren’t attacking her because she’s a woman (well, most aren’t…). They’re attacking her because she’s an know-nothing idiot being played like a fiddle by (among others) Hogan and Bischoff.

    Oh, Spoony…

    Boxing gloves! Strongbad reference takes the cake

  8. Guest says:

    And yes Hogan, Booker T is still comin’ for you. N-word.

  9. Guest says:

    All being said, this might be the funniest YT video ever. I really think some of these had merit and Dixie should’ve answered them.

    After doing so badly with her company, she has guts to take these head on.
