Dixie Carter Addresses Fan Questions
Dixie Carter addressed fan questions in a new “Ask Dixie” on Twitter. During the session she said Bischoff-Hervey Entertainment produce Impact Wrestling, but it would appear Bischoff himself is not part of the product on a creative or talent level. She also addressed Jeff Jarrett’s new promotion, Kurt Angle jumping to WWE, Vince Russo and more. Here are the highlights …
