So Dixie Carter turned heel. And AJ Styles is a solid B+...err, I mean, "average fish".

I will say I thought they at least put an interesting twist on it -- she seemed to be saying that he USED to be The Phenomenal One, but he hasn't been for a few years.

The two promos seemed quite disjointed, though. It's like they had two different end games in mind.

I just thought it was bloody awful. It's such a naked rehash of what WWE has going on, and it's using TNA's version of Linda McMahon. Remember when Linda turned heel? What did that last, two weeks?

And what is this building to? AJ/Bully? How in the Hell does that work?

Well, they're mixing the two big angles, aren't they? That's why it feels slightly different. This thing seems to be inspired by both the CM Punk contract-dispute storyline and that promo (what with the name-dropping and the whole I'm-out-of-a-contract thing), and the Steph McMahon-Daniel Bryan "B+" thread.

So as of now we have,
AJ Styles as CM Bryan
and Dixie Carter as Triple Stephanie.

We could add,
Hulk Hogan as Vince McMahon
Bully Ray as Randy Orton
E.G.O. as the Shield
and many more...

Though Dixie asking Bully Ray (a man whose stated mission is to destroy TNA) to help save TNA from the menace that is AJ Styles would be an interesting little twist. The problem is, out of the three main players, only Bully Ray can cut a convincing promo.

So did Dixie Carter look at the universal vitriol for Stephanie McMahon and think to herself, "Yeah, I need some of THAT!"

To be honest, I thought it was the best Dixie promo ever, as well as one of the best from AJ. That's not saying much, but still. Probably a lot of truth/reality from both sides. AJ was certainly saying what many fans feel: they should focus on making and pushing their own stars.

For those that missed it (and I'm assuming that's pretty much everybody 'cause Impact), TNA posted the clip on Youtube:

(Sorry, I tried both the old and new embed code and couldn't get it to work, so I apologise for the regular old link.)

I know this is pretty wrong but I just can't seem to take AJ as a serious force with that accent, though.

I'm 100% sure it's actually all the negative reaction Dixie's gotten on Twitter lately - #AskDixie and the like - spurred TNA into believing Dixie would be way over as a heel.

I don't think it's likely to work out that way at all, because it's frustration anger and not the kind that's likely to induce ticket buying, but TNA generally seems desperately drawn to do anything that might inspire a reaction. - luchablog

It was an interesting segment. Both parties came across as very unlikeable, and I think that was the point.

Dixie seemed very heelish, but Emo AJ did need a smackdown.

I hope they don't go full on heel with her. One of the best parts about TNA is that they explain the existence of Evil in TNA as being due to their owner's incompetence rather than Malice. It makes being a fan of the organization easier than of WWE due to WWE's presentation of evil wrestlers running amok because their company's boss is evil. The WWE status quo is to have the bad guys in charge, which makes it hard to be hopeful for their heroes' prospects over the long term. If Dixie turns evil, then TNA runs into the same problem where the main villain can't get his/her comeuppance unless a new owner takes over. (Or by having Bob and Janice Carter finally debut.)


I loved the Aces and Eights segment due to Knux acknowledging the long hanging question of what happened to the other 15 masked men in Aces and Eights: Bully Ray's poor leadership made them leave the group. With only Ray, Brooke T., Taz, Garrett, Brisco, and Knux left, we will presumably wind down the faction by the time BfG is over.


ODB as champ again has potential. It will be interesting to see if ODB and AJ are both champions after Bound for Glory. They were both champs after BfG 2009 when the Hogan storyarc started. If Hogan is gone soon, then putting the titles back on them brings us back full circle.

His first two minutes were very good, Dixie saying AJ isn't was good as he used to be is better than saying he was never good. His point of dragging in WWE hasbeens for a vacation and check was skipped over.

This was really muddled like most domestic disputes, which this should become. Not evil boss vs employee, but messy Southern couple breakup with out actually being a real couple.

Uh, the split is one of the better decisions they could have made, given the size of their roster. How exactly would ending the split improve things? Fix the booking. Fix the writing. By god, put some wrestling in there.
