Terry Taylor was fired on 5/20 as head of talent relations in TNA. Taylor, 55, was believed to have been let go due to allegations made against him in a lawsuit filed by a former talent. It is not necessarily the Shannon Spruill (Daffney) suit, although his name was implicated in that suit of stalling when she tried to get the company to pay her hospital bills before the company ended up not paying them, and also being pressured to perform after suffering a concussion. Bruce Prichard will take over the duties. There are reports the job of negotiating contracts will be taken over by Dean Broadhead, the company’s CFO.

Dave Meltzer in the observer.

He's apparently named in the sexual harrassment suit.

What sexual harrassment suit? Can you elaborate? (Can you do it without cutting and pasting?)

An unnamed knockout is apparently suing TNA and Taylor was mentioned.

It's why Dixie is keeping a lower profile too. Since combined with this and the Daffney stuff she's getting a ton of heat from Panda Energy who are wondering what she's gotten them into.

I have heard this rumor as well and the rumor goes the unnamed Knockout is Karen Angle. Thus, the reason for her not being on TV til a few months ago. There is another rumor saying he was in trouble before with another female wrestler back in the early days of TNA. I am not sure who that is since I didn't watch TNA til 2005. Again, rumors, but he is out by the end of the month.

Professional wrestling is a guys thing, yet I do not condone any mistreatment of any female in any locker room. Now, this reminds me of the frivolous stuff Sable pulled on the WWE but on a more legitimate level. If Terry, even with his contributions over all to wresting the last 20 years in front of the camera & behind the scenes, is a womanizer...then by all means let him burn. Still, most of this is speculation because it is always innocent until proven guilty. So, we'll see what comes of this little inner office mess.

**NOTE:I dont know if its right to post this considering there is no 100% die hard proof but just talk from ex wrestlers and staff: So delete if need be.

Apparently their are two different issues all together! The Karen Angle story is she is suing or threatened to sue Dixie Carter's Husband Serge for sexual harassment. And part of the settlement to make everything go away was for Karen to be able to get back on TV and on the TNA payroll. And it seems Serge has a history for being an ass backstage at shows.

Then, you have a whole nother sexual harassment suit but this time Taylor is named. No name is given but its said its a "former knockout". Leading to rumors that its either Roxxi or even Lacey Von Erich. Mostly Lacey, cause there were reports she was having problems with TNA management early on.

Also, former WCW/TNA wrestler Big Vito has said in a radio interview that he took part in fake "TNA Gutcheck Challenges" with Taylor and Tom Brandy. The purpose was to get people to pay large sums to tryout but no real intention to sign anyone but for them three to pocket large sums of the cash.

and again with Taylor the whole Daffney issue.

Googling shows that the source of the Dixie/Karen rumor is the Honky Tonk Man (or at least people saying they are quoting him).

Further research seems to show a two month gap between Karen's return (January 13) and Dixie's last appearance (March 3, I think).

Sure, go with the least likely scenario...

I can see Lacey being the girl suing.

Dave Meltzer used to mention that while she had an image as a ditz, and didn't know much about wrestling, she was actually really smart, and ran her own marketing business outside of TNA. She's really savvy by "real world standards".

Basically, she's not the type of girl to put up with any s***.

She's also kept a really profile since she left, didn't come back for Madison's challenge, and hasn't done any of the interviews with the sun or diva-dirt the former KOs usually do.

I'm not going to change your opinion on this matter, but you're biased against Undertaker, PERIOD. He's the main face on that show and there's no one but Rey EVEN close (and don't say Benoit because that guy doesn't elicit pops or boos).
