Dixie Carter

Through his Twitter account, Sean Waltman, who has been quite vocal about TNA since his departure, bashes Dixie Carter for releasing Jesse Sorensen from the company. Waltman feels that Carter should have taken care of him permanently after he suffered a serious neck injury in the ring.

July 23, 2013
AJ Styles
A serious setback has sprung up for Yoshi Tatsu, long regarded as one of the hardest working and passionate performers in professional wrestling. He suffered two broken bones in his neck, and is going to require a good amount of time in rehabilitation. Tatsu noted that he has never been hospitalized prior to this injury. The belief is that the broken neck was suffered during a recent match against AJ Styles.
November 26, 2014
Roman Reigns
Reports have surfaced that Roman Reigns is backstage at Survivor Series 2014. Some believe that he could be making an appearance during the pay per view. No word yet on what role that will be, but he could play a part in the main event elimination tag team match. Reigns could be utilized to attack Seth Rollins, which would reignite the feud between the two of them that was started before Reigns was sidelined by an injury.
November 23, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Fans at WWE live events have noticed that the company has been greatly reducing the price on Daniel Bryan merchandise over the last couple of weeks. That has led to some speculation about the future of the former world heavyweight champion, who has been out of action because of a severe neck injury. The belief is that management is simply trying to clear out the merchandise, and that it has no bearing on what will happen with Bryan.
November 20, 2014
Ethan Carter
Since TNA has not been filming new episodes of Impact Wrestling on a regular basis, a lot of the performers have been finding work on the independent wrestling circuit. Ethan Carter just proved how risky that is. He tore his biceps during a match this week. The injury will cause him to miss the House of Hardcore event this weekend, where he was scheduled to work a big match against Tommy Dreamer, the man promoting the show.
November 15, 2014
Roman Reigns
WWE wants Roman Reigns to become their biggest star. However, he currently lacks the speaking skills that other top level performers usually have. To maximize his time during his injury recover, Reigns has been seeking the help of Howard Fine, a highly praised acting coach in Hollywood. The hope is that the former Shield member will be ready to carry the company after Wrestlemania 31, where he is expected to win the heavyweight championship.
November 7, 2014
Bo Dallas
When WWE decided to kill his push, Bo Dallas was understandably concerned about his spot on the roster. He is in even more jeopardy now, as reports have surfaced that Dallas has suffered an injury to his foot. He is said to need about two months off the road to recover. During that time frame, management might push someone else or even bring up a developmental wrestler in his place.
November 3, 2014
Santino Marella
As many fans already know, Santino Marella is retired and wants to make a return to WWE next year. He is one step closer to that goal, as his physician has cleared him medically to start training his upper body after recovering from a severe neck injury. The former Intercontinental Champion stated that he is going to check his ego in at the door and start training from the very beginning. For what it's worth, WWE officials are said to be interested and open to the idea of Marella coming back.
November 3, 2014
Dean Ambrose
Rumors are floating around that Randy Orton suffered a serious injury during the handicap street fight tag team match on Monday Night Raw. It took place early in the match when Dean Ambrose dove out of the ring and on to the heels. Orton reportedly told the trainer that the ruptured disc in his back was messed up. No word yet on whether or not he can work Hell in a Cell 2014, but as a precaution, WWE kept Orton from working Smackdown this week.
October 22, 2014
Bray Wyatt
There were some speculations from online wrestling fans that Bray Wyatt had some sort of injury since he has not been utilized much on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown as much recently. However, the truth is that he is just fine. Wyatt continues to work matches on a regular basis during WWE live events. Management seems to be purposely not using him much on television.
October 4, 2014
Brie Bella
Some crazy rumors are floating around right now about Nikki Bella and Brie Bella competing in a Hell in a Cell match at Hell in a Cell 2014. WWE is extremely unlikely to do this because they do want their female performers in gimmick matches that might cause severe injury, but the rumors have some merit because it was revealed by an insider who has accurately broken the news on a couple of things in the past.
September 29, 2014
Jack Swagger
Wade Barrett hasn't been on television in quite some time now because he suffered a shoulder injury during a match with Jack Swagger. He was recently up in Toronto, so he sought the help of Trish Stratus, a former WWE diva who now runs a successful yoga business. Barrett stated that the workout session with Trish helped his shoulder feel a bit better.
September 27, 2014
Santino Marella
By now, a lot of people are aware that Santino Marella is in the process of trying to make a comeback to professional wrestling after being forced to retire due to a severe neck injury. The former Intercontinental Champion has now revealed that he hopes to be able to make a return to WWE in about six months. The belief is that the door is open for him to come back since management views his comedic routine as an asset.
September 26, 2014
Samoa Joe
Those of you that watch Impact Wrestling already know that Samoa Joe did a segment where he gave up the TNA X Division Championship. That led to some speculations from fans as to whether or not it is a story line. Unfortunately, the injury is a legitimate one. Joe has been having some problems with his shoulders. He might still try to work through the pain and perform at Bound For Glory 2014, though.
September 25, 2014
Ryback
Through his Twitter account, Ryback revealed to fans that it has now been 18 days since his surgery, and he has been recovering extremely well from his still unknown injury, which is rumored to involve his groin. He should be making a return to WWE very soon, as he is now pain free. He might not be rushed back, though, as management really doesn't have a story ready for him.
September 15, 2014
Brie Bella
Brie Bella recently gave WWE fans some hope when she revealed that Daniel Bryan was no longer going to need a second surgery to repair his neck injury. Many were expecting him to return by January, which happens to be the month that Royal Rumble 2015 takes place. However, reports are now surfacing that WWE is trying to see if Bryan can make his return at Survivor Series 2014 instead.
September 9, 2014
Adam Rose
One of the growing points of emphasis on Monday Night Raw lately has become the bunny that accompanies Adam Rose to ringside. A lot of WWE fans are wondering who is the person behind the suit. Many of the guesses have been based upon the movies that the bunny does. However, management is simply throwing off the fans with moves like the super kick. Right now, the strongest candidate to be revealed under the suit is Darren Young, who should be returning from a serious leg injury soon.
September 9, 2014
Brie Bella
During a media interview to promote Total Divas, Brie Bella revealed that Daniel Bryan would not be needing the second surgery that has long been rumored to repair his neck injury. She stated that her husband was gaining the strength back in his right arm and could be back as soon as three months, which would enable WWE to have him make a surprise return at Royal Rumble 2015.
September 7, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Yesterday, it was revealed that WWE had pulled Daniel Bryan from the upcoming European tour in November. The former world heavyweight champion was scheduled to make appearances at the live events on that continent. Reports are now surfacing that management made the decision to pull him from the tour because Bryan has received confirmation from doctors that a second surgery is needed to repair his neck injury.
August 29, 2014
Ryback
When word broke that Ryback was injured, there were some reports of skepticism from WWE officials that there really was no injury. However, the legitimacy of his health has been proven, as Ryback has posted a video of himself in the hospital. He clearly did go under the knife. It is being said that Ryback has worked with strained groins and hernias for the last year.
August 28, 2014
Mick Foley
Considering the amount of pain that he withstood for the sake of entertaining fans over the years, it is a bit surprising that Mick Foley did not spend more time on the sidelines. He has retired from WWE now, but an injury is preventing him from working. Back issues have prompted the former world heavyweight champion to cancel an upcoming appearance in Denver. No word yet on whether or not it will be rescheduled.
August 27, 2014
Dixie Carter
Now that their long anticipated television deal with Destination America has been signed and sealed, Dixie Carter and the TNA management team will now shift their focus towards securing a television contract to continue airing Impact Wrestling in Canada. A deal seems imminent, as the company sounds highly confident in their ongoing negotiations with networks north of the border.
November 22, 2014
Dixie Carter
Now that the television deal is signed and sealed, Dixie Carter and her staff will be focusing on offering contracts to performers, both in house and free agents. TNA had allowed several of their starts to depart because they did not want to sign long term deals without knowing if they will remain on the air. It may become a bit of a race, as other employment options have sprung up for wrestlers over the last couple of months.
November 21, 2014
Dixie Carter
One of the reasons why Dixie Carter found the Destination America deal more appealing than the others is because the network promised that they would make TNA a centerpiece. In addition to being given two hours a week for Impact Wrestling, the company will also be allowed to produce specials and secondary shows to be aired. The network is hoping to lure in professional wrestling fans to their other shows as well.
November 21, 2014
Dixie Carter
While their new television contract with Destination America does not start until 2015, there are talks that TNA could start filming episodes of Impact Wrestling again in December. Initially, Dixie Carter had planned to do taping at the Manhattan Center in January, but those will now more than likely be canceled. The company would then film episodes in England during their annual tour of the country.
November 21, 2014
Dixie Carter
After months of speculations, TNA has finally announced that they have a new television deal in place. Dixie Carter had promised everyone that it was going to happen, but there was a lot of skepticism that surrounded the statement. Impact Wrestling will now be aired on Destination America, a new network that is rapidly growing. No word yet on when the first episode will be airing, but the belief is that we might need to wait until January.
November 19, 2014
Dixie Carter
As the company continues to discuss the possibility of remaining on Spike TV, Dixie Carter and her staff have been in negotiations with Destination America, a channel that is under the Discovery Channel umbrella and is available in 60 million homes in the United States. The move is seen as a precaution, in case their deal with Spike does not become finalized. The first option for the company is still to stay where they currently are.
November 13, 2014
Dixie Carter
While it seemed all but certain that Impact Wrestling was going to have a new home in 2015, reports are now surfacing that TNA and Spike TV are close to finalizing a deal to keep the business relationship going. Sources have stated that the two sides have been in negotiation the entire time, even as TNA was allowed to seek a contract with another television network. Dixie Carter was expected to make an announcement this week, but if there is a chance to remain with Spike, the reveal could be delayed.
November 1, 2014
Dixie Carter
At the end of the year, the long businesss relationship between TNA and Spike will be coming to an end. Dixie Carter, however, has only filmed enough episodes of Impact Wrestling to last until the middle of November. Reports have surfaced that the company will simply rely on recap shows during the final month of the year, as they make the transition to what hopefully will be a new home.
October 22, 2014
Dixie Carter

It has now been revealed by the company that they have signed new television contracts that will enable them to gain viewers in Malaysia and Singapore. Impact Wrestling can now be seen in nearly 125 countries.
October 3, 2014
Dixie Carter
Generally, when you run a nationally known wrestling promotion, you try to lock down your performers to prevent them from being hurt elsewhere. TNA was doing that for a while, but Dixie Carter had to make some changes, in order to keep her company afloat. Performers are now given a bit more freedom to work on the independent wrestling circuit to compensate for the lower paying contracts.
September 26, 2014
Dixie Carter
Rumors surfaced this week that Dixie Carter was going to make an announcement about the new network that Impact Wrestling would be moving to. However, at the last minute, Country Music Television has emerged as a strong candidate to land the weekly TNA show. The network is under the same corporate umbrella as their current home, Spike. CMT is available in close to 100 million homes.

September 23, 2014

As expected, the ratings dropped initially. However, Dixie Carter and company have been slowly turning things around, and a lot of the viewers are now aware that they are on a different day.
September 19, 2014

The former world heavyweight champion has publicly stated that he felt that the offer was insulting.
September 16, 2014

While reports are saying that their contract with Spike TV is expiring at the end of the year, executives in TNA are still making moves as if they are definitely going to remain on television.
