While doing a podcast interview with Steve Austin, Dixie Carter revealed that she has been involved with professional wrestling for much longer than people realized. Many are under the assumption that her career in the industry began when her family purchased the majority share of TNA. However, Dixie was actually a wrestling promoter back when she was in college. She even helped Jerry Lawler book a USWA live event.

In addition to being the president of TNA, Dixie Carter also has a side job as a college football recruiter. As a five star defensive end, CeCe Jefferson was one of the most coveted high players in the nation. A lot of the top schools were pushing for him to sign a letter of intention. Carter sent the younger a message on Twitter and encouraged him to sign her alma mater, Ole Miss. Jefferson was so flattered that he showed that off to friends.
