Hmmm. I don't think Dixie feels very safe doing things any other way. She's probably just as confused and scared as anybody might be. It's possible she's in over her head and feels nobody is around to rescue her or assure her what is best. I don't think she knows the right thing to do because she might feel she's been taken advantage of. Things might be easier if had been taught about wrestling much, but this is all just a new thing and I'm sure she is still figuring it all out. If she wasn't a good person in heart I'm not too sure Awesome Kong or Gail Kim ever would have come back.

She had Jeff Jarrett. She could have treated him a lot better than she did and wouldn't be so "alone."

But honestly, if Dixie feels at any time that she is in over her head, she shouldn't be running the company. She should find someone who could run it better. She's been the president of the company for 13 years now. If she is confused and scared after running the company as long as she has been, then she needs to hand the reigns over to someone who isn't.

It is very true that she didn't seem to appreciate Jeff much. Hulk seemed to wine and dine her until she was eventually duped in by his charm and convinced. I'm not familiar with her exact situation. There may be pressures on her to succeed on her own in ways we don't understand. Her father may have been overbearing or any number of things. She has appeared desperate at times and maybe this was just something she wasn't meant to do.

I think you're spot on about Hogan. He convinced her that he was someone who he wasn't. By coming out and claiming that he taught Vince McMahon how to run the WWF, he was able to pull the wool over her eyes. Upon Hogan's arrival is when Jarrett's influence took a severe dive and also where the product started to suffer. Bischoff destroying the 6 sided ring on TV was a great sign of this.

I can't really blame Dixie for being taken in by Hogan and Bischoff. She doesn't really have roots in the business and Hogan's name likely seemed good to bank on at the time. Bischoff did run WCW successfully for a short period of time, but he mortgaged the future of the company for short term gain and it seemed like he was trying to take TNA on that path as well.

I admit I am biased towards Jarrett, since I am a huge fan of the guy. But I am not claiming he's a promotional genius or anything. Still, he grew up in the business and he grew up the son of a promoter, so his instincts as a behind the scenes promoter were likely better than she would have. But oh well. I hope she can still succeed. Even though I've lost my enthusiasm for TNA, I think it still needs to be around and I don't like watching people (not named Hulk Hogan) fail. But I was only able to get through a small portion of the show yesterday... when the guy in the four way match started knocking other guys down with his beer belly, that was the end of it for me.

Fortunately, I was such a big fan of TNA that when it started I taped all the weekly PPVS and the Fox Sports Channel show and bought all the Spike TV episodes off iTunes. It's fun to go back and watch TNA in what I consider its glory days

lol. You and your sister are so adorable. It's so cute that we're all from the same city. Annnways, it was fun reading this because this is how I feel mostly. Maybe deep down inside Dixie knows these things and it troubles her which is why she is trying to mend fences with Jeff. It would be a beautiful story for things to be made right again but sadly it may never be. :confused: We learn from our mistakes and become warmer, better people for this. If I had a magic wand, it would be easy to make things better for her. With people leaving her left and right I can't imagine where she's getting the strength to keep going.

Thanks! We both appreciate that, I am sure.

I think I agree with you about the feeling bad and mending fences comments. I think that the apology speech that Dixie gave at the beginning of Impact the other day wasn't just her onscreen character speaking. I think it was likely the real her as well.

With what has been going on in TNA, I can understand that it must be overwhelming for her and she definitely doesn't deserve all of that upheaval, regardless of how I felt about her with the Jeff Jarrett situation. I honestly think, though, that with everything like it was and with Jeff coming back for the KOTM match, it spoke a lot to both of them. I don't think there will be permanent hard feelings there.
