Booker T talked about his time in TNA on his Hall of Fame Podcast this week. He was asked about his time in TNA and if Dixie Carter was involved in the writing and creative process.
His answer went a bit off the rails, but he heavily implied Dixie Carter may have mixed business with pleasure a bit too much.
“I don’t know what Dixie was doing half the time. I know she was hanging out in the bar hanging out with the boys. When you are hanging out with the boys, the water might get hot. You understand what I’m saying. I don’t know what Dixie was doing but she seemed like she was living out her MILF’s dream. Serious man. Dixie was getting busy. I’m not going to say what she was doing, but Dixie was definitely, how do you say it back in the day? Hot to trot. I don’t know. She had the makeup and everything on. I don’t know how much writing she was doing for the show. This is the real deal. I remember one time Dixie threw a huge party. The celebration was, it was just after the show. There was no real reason to have a party. We are having a party just because the show is over with. Let’s have a party. That’s when I knew, brother, you get your paper, because this ship is going to sink real soon. When the boss starts mingling with the talent, and I don’t know what kind of mingling they were doing. But, when the boss starts hanging around the talent having parties, hanging out and doing that kind of stuff, it’s a bad message and a huge mistake. Business is definitely secondary. You can count how many parties we had for Reality of Wrestling. It’s been here at the house because those two things just don’t go together. Business and pleasure just do not go together. I’m the first one to say Dixie Carter was trying to do one of the greatest things one can do for the boys. Securing guy’s jobs. The company had a chance to do that, but Dixie Carter being in that position and not knowing if she was in shark-infested waters or what type of sharks they were, she just didn’t know that. She didn’t know if it was a great white or one of the sand sharks. She didn’t know. That’s where the mistakes happen I think with TNA, her being one of those people who had a big heart. I’m not saying she was having the parties because she wanted a party. She was having the parties because she wanted to give the guys something. I’m about joking and having fun on the front end, but I think she was trying to do a great thing. It just didn’t work out.”
Booker sure talked about a lot of stuff in that quote, but did she help write or book while she was there?
