Dixie Carter Makes Crazy Claim About Hulk Hogan

May 08, 2013 By: Category: Entertainment, WWE | Pro Wrestling

If you thought Hulk Hogan had his hooks in Dixie Carter before, wait until you hear how the TNA president truly sees her knight in shining armor. According to Dixie, her number one babyface is bigger than any company, brand, and a few global celebrities.

There has always been this theory that Hulk and Eric Bischoff are taking Dixie Carter and TNA Wrestling for a ride. To be fair, a lot of people close to the situation say otherwise, but there have been indications along the way that they may not have the best interests of TNA at heart and that they had a money mark on their hands. Little did any of us know how deep in their hands they truly have the TNA boss.

I am sure Dixie Carter is a nice woman but my gosh does she say some of the dumbest things. I don’t have time to list all of her greatest hits but all you have to do is take a look at some of the brilliant musings she has tweeted on Twitter to get an idea that this woman is just not all there. That said, her latest comments may be her best…or worst yet.

Dixie was asked about Hulk Hogan’s power and on-screen role and according to her, he is bigger than the company itself. This what she told ContactMusic.com.

He (Hulk) is bigger than any brand, company, name – he is synonymous with wrestling and is probably one of the most recognisable faces or figures on the entire planet. Name me someone who is alive today who’d be more recognizable in any corner of the world? In places like Africa and Asia, or if you were walking in Thailand? Princess Diana or Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley maybe? But they aren’t even with us anymore. The Rock? Well, if you are walking in a village in Africa would people know who The Rock was? I think his film work has been outstanding. I’m a huge fan of The Rock, I think he is phenomenal, but would that happen?

Wow! Okay let’s put it this way. If Hulk Hogan really is bigger than all of those names she mentioned, than he ought to be fired because he should be drawing more than 10,000 people once in a lifetime to a TNA event. If he truly is as global as she thinks he is, he is the worst businessman in the history of the business and maybe he is.

It’s funny because Vince McMahon has made plenty of outrageous claims over the years but I was trying to think back and I don’t even think he compared any of his wrestlers to Michael Jackson or Princess Di. Now as far as the comparison to Dwayne Johnson, maybe he is more known globally than him. If that’s the case than you’d think he’d be able to compete with him for the over two million buys Johnson has drawn the last two WrestleMania events right?

This statement comes mind you at a time when ratings are declining and TNA just did one of their worst ratings yet. Maybe Dixie is just trying her hand at standup comedy?

That is the only explanation.

Ric Flair RF Video Shoot Interview Review

March 27, 2013 By: Category: Videos, WWE | Pro Wrestling

Ric Flair certainly isn’t afraid to speak what is on his mind. The dirtiest player in the game is the subject of a new RF Video Shoot Interview and just like he has for over 30 years in the ring, he delivers.

I should note in the object of fairness that I did write the questions for this shoot interview. At the same time this is not any kind of a paid review. I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of the interview for review, good or bad. I can tell you quite honestly, it is great.

I watched the entire shoot during an early morning commute on Amtrak and it made the trip fly by. This isn’t Flair’s first shoot interview. Flair did a series of shoots a few years ago, but this is the first one he has done regarding his TNA Wrestling run. Flair talks plenty of TNA and much more in this fast-paced two hour interview.

Unlike some previous shoot interviews, Flair looks like he wants to be there. Nothing asked offends Flair and believe me when I tell you, there are a couple of questions I wrote up that I thought would ruffle the Nature Boy. Flair addresses all of the TNA controversies and finally has his say after sitting quiet for almost a year.

I don’t want to give away too much of the interview but they immediately jump right into his reunion with Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff. If you are expecting Flair to bury these guys forget about it. He loves them, especially Hulk. Flair does address their past heat and even throws a slight dig in at Hulk. It is interesting to hear Flair talk about how their fond friendship came to fruition.

Flair then jumps right into TNA. Flair talks about a conversation he had with Vince McMahon before joining TNA. Flair reveals what Vince said and whether his old boss was supportive or not with the move. Flair also talks a lot about Dixie Carter and is asked flat out whether he thinks Hulk and Bischoff are working here. Flair is a Dixie fan but he does have a problem with one TNA executive which he gets into on the DVD.

Flair is asked about all of the controversies during his TNA run. Flair addresses everything from holding up the bus in Europe to refusing to sign autographs. I will say this. After hearing Flair tell his sides to these stories I do have a bit of a different outlook on it. I won’t say I’m sympathetic to Flair but I can certainly understand why things happened.

Flair also digs into the past a little bit and offers up two very interesting stories about Haku and the Bruiser Brody murder. Flair reveals some facts about the murder that I had never known. Flair also recalls a story about a fight Haku and Road Warrior Hawk got into in Japan against fans that got Haku banned for life. Flair tells RF Video that he has plenty of more stories where that came from.

What impressed me more than anything was Flair’s memory. He was off on some things but other stories and memories he recounted I wouldn’t have expected to hear from someone his age. I do know that RF Video are doing a series on Flair so hopefully he can be as insightful when they cover his early career as he was in this interview.

Flair is pretty complimentary when asked about most of his opponents and ex-bosses in TNA. There is one wrestler who gets the brunt of Flair’s anger. It’s obvious that those promos Shane Douglas cut on Ric Flair in ECW hit hard because here we are about 20 years later and Flair is burying Shane. You have seen the preview so I am not giving away a big reveal here.

Overall I’d highly recommend the DVD if you are a Flair fan or just enjoy hearing someone who has been through as much controversy as Flair address all of the hot button topics. This DVD is like one big high spot as there isn’t anything asked of Flair that isn’t interesting. I can’t wait for the next one!
