Here are some excerpts from the interview:
On Dixie Carter getting put through a table:
In all honesty, she martyred for her cause and you can’t do anything but respect her doing that. It was a great angle that had a conducive story telling a beginning, middle and end and a payoff that left everyone happy. All the credit in the world to her for taking that risk with her body. And it also doesn’t hurt to have a boss know want it feels like a little bit.
On Impact Wrestling moving to Wednesday nights on Spike TV:
I like the move a lot personally because I don’t have anything to watch on Wednesdays. Thursdays is a pretty stacked night, especially with the NFL coming back. I think as we continually move forward I think all bets are off with what kind of things we can experiment with doing. Everything seemingly over the past few months has been going pretty strongly in our favor as far as taking risks whether it’s the ring, moving TV to New York and Bethlehem areas. All that stuff has proven to be a better product so I don’t see why this move doesn’t make it even better and maybe even open to a more wide audience.
On the talk about TNA when it comes to its deal with Spike TV:
There is a lot of chatter and I think a lot of misinformation but I know that Spike and TNA are in constant negotiations and I leave that to them. What I do know is that we have an awesome product that is continually getting better each and every week so if it’s Spike, if it’s somewhere else we are an asset and will continue moving forward and I’m very confident in our future as a company.
