Steven Muehlhausen recently interviewed TNA President Dixie Carter on The Fight Club Chicago radio show. During the interview, Carter responded to criticism of Hulk Hogan and discussed what he's meant to TNA.
"I think people think he's just showing up and collecting some big fat paycheck, and it couldn't be further from the truth," said Carter. "This guy, this legend in our business, truly he surpasses the word wrestling itself. He is so immersed in our business and helping us grow our business on days he's not even on shows. He's driving an hour and a half to sit in on our agents' meetings and help working with agents and the talent on the night of the show. If we have a PPV and he's not on it, he's there. He's working his tail off.

"And then you have what Hulk Hogans bring to a company such as ours, and the doors it opens and the visibility it gives and that's everything. He's making business calls for us, he's talking to advertisers, he's showing up and working Viacom stuff. He's as vested as you can possibly be and I think he will always be known for so many big, big things throughout his career. I am hopeful that this period of his life, even when he's not in the ring wrestling, will be one that fans are proud of how much he's giving back to this sport and how he's helping these young guys grow and what he's doing for our industry."
ugh

I'm going to give her the benefit of the doubt here. If she's being truthful about what's going on behind the scenes then maybe Hogan ain't so bad. Not saying he's an angel or something but the guy always had passion for the business and I do believe that deep down inside, Hogan wants to help. Even if somethings don't go so well.

Kind of unrelated, but related as well, the lady has been so brainwashed to what the company/wrestling needs it's kind of sad. Imagine the shit spewed over the years by Jeff Jarrett, Vince Russo, Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan.

This thread is hilarious.

Can I ask, how exactly do a bunch of smarks in this thread know better than the owner of the company what Hulk Hogan has done for TNA? Considering the fact that they are around each other most days.

Go back and read your replies, are you not embarrassed? How the heck would any of you know what Hogan has been doing for TNA behind the scenes better than Dixie Carter!?

Stinks of sexism to be honest. You would not be saying these things if she were a man, no chance.

Dixie said all the right things. She's not incorrect here.

You have to admit Hulk Hogan does have a lot of contacts in the business. I can see him calling advetisers and helping with talent and other off stage things. He has a passion for wrestling and is trying to help the brand grow. I respect him for that. I don't think she is lying about that.

Well said. 99% of us have probably been backstage in the locker room and into a booking room, or have even met Dixie and Hogan

She said what she was supposed to say

whether it's true or not doesn't matter, it's not like she's gonna say bad things about the guy.

I wonder what great things Brooke Hogan is gonna bring to the table.

Dixie is a mark, and she's being worked by the ultimate worker.

Rome is burning and Dixie is too busy playing Captain-Save-A-Hogan to notice. People don't like to feel stupid for making bad choices, so they defend them. She's not spinning here; she actually believes what she is talking about. A small part of her brain is telling her, "Of course you made the right choice here, sweetie, otherwise you would have essentially lost millions of dollars and sacrificed the morale of the people who built your company. Shh, everything is fine!"

The point of paying any employee, at the very least, is to get that money back somehow. Hogan's been with TNA for two years and if TNA isn't reaping any type of reward yet from his presence, what makes them think it's ever going to happen at all?

lol, sexism? I don't think it has anything to do with that really. If she were a man she would still get the same hate she does as a woman. I don't see how sexism applies to Dixie when it has nothing to do with her being a woman but how she runs TNA and how she acts.
