Impact Wrestling was created by Jeff Jarrett, but he eventually lost control of the company. The Dixie Carter years of Impact Wrestling were filled with many unforgettable moments, both good and bad. AJ Styles can now look back and see Carter as the beginning of the company’s demise.
On his Twitch channel, Styles defended Vince Russo, whom many fans point the finger at. They made harsh comments, but it was mainly because Dixie Carter got involved in things.
AJ Styles says Dixie Carter ruined TNA
In the end, he believes Dixie Carter ruined 100% of Impact Wrestling. He wanted to make Impact Wrestling something his fans didn’t want to see.
“Vince (Russo), as a person, I love the guy, and we bump our heads right up to where he wrote, even on TNA, but I realized when we hit our heads, it was because he was listening to Dixie’s ideas all the time. It must have been very difficult working with this woman who has no idea how the fight works and wanted everything possible to be done to him, and it made no sense. We ran into him as a writer, but because Dixie Carter got so involved with the creative side, it ruined everything. “
“I think Dixie ruined impact? Well, it was TNA back then, and I’m 100% sure it was. There was a time when I was really gaining ground. The problem was that Dixie wanted to be WWE-lite and that was not what people wanted. They wanted to see something else. All he had to do was let us do what we do, it was really that simple. If I had left it to the writers, I think TNA would still be around and would be bigger than they are, but not knowing what is best for business, it hurt TNA. “
Impact Wrestling is experiencing a resurgence. Their audience has increased since Slammiversary as those numbers were recently released for the first time this year.
The company brought in several recently released WWE Superstars, so its roster got a huge boost in a very short period of time. Perhaps this is the beginning of a new moment of growth for the company as they continue.
