Dixie Carter acknowledges WWE interest in taking over TNA

Dixie Carter

Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com is reporting that Dixie Carter held a meeting with the TNA locker room last night before the start of the week-long Impact tapings in Orlando.

Carter admitted that WWE is interested in purchasing the company when someone brought up the question but said she would “not let that happen” although she could if she wants to. The former TNA President, who still is the majority owner of the company, said that TNA still owns the tape library and they did not sell it to WWE.

Last week when the New York Post went fishing for a comment from WWE regarding the rumors, a WWE spokesman refused to give a comment.

Perhaps one of the most interesting, if not the most interesting, thing that came out of the meeting is that Carter also acknowledged that there have been disagreements and even in-fighting between the several minority owners of the company as power struggles continue to dominate the difficult period that TNA is going through.

The New York Post said that Carter will be resuming her negotiations for the sale this week, including further talks with WWE.
