Whatever happened to #AskDixie?

You'd have to ask her!

No, in all seriousness, I think the poor timing of the announcement for that feature - coming at the same time TNA let so many people go, especially Jesse Sorensen - ended up tainting that phrase and concept forever, so the company wisely tapped out after Carter answered one batch of questions.

I am getting the feeling that the Big Show is actually in on this and will eventually be named the WWE Champion. What are the chances that Show is actually in on this with the McMahons?

I don't believe that's where they are going with the current storyline, but given that they flipped Triple H without as much as a logical explanation and Stephanie McMahon wants the Randy Orton that once molested her while her husband was handcuffed to the ropes, it COULD happen!

I believe it was the pre-show of Summerslam 1996. Yokozuna fought Stone Cold. Yokozuna went for banzai drop and top rope snapped. Was that planned as a way for Stone Cold to go over?

That was a planned finish.

What would you say is the best wrestling match you have seen from a national, American promotion?

It's really hard to top Steve Austin vs. Rock from Wrestlemania 17, Kurt Angle vs. Shawn Michaels from Wrestlemania 21 or Shawn Michaels vs. Undertaker from Wrestlemania 25.

Isn't TNA's decision to take Impact on the road a failure to heed history? Jim Crockett Promotions went belly up when they went national and now TNA is obviously losing a lot of money because of this similar, failed plan. Here's an idea that would save a ton: Establish a home base somewhere along I-95. Run the the east coast, in cities along I-95. Miami, Daytona, Jacksonville, Myrtle Beach, Fayetteville, Raleigh, Richmond, D.C., Philadelphia, New York, etc. Easy to travel to, good wrestling markets and can be done cheap, with talent driving instead of flying. Thoughts?

It could certainly be seen that way. I think the idea of a promotion running up and down the East Coast is certainly one that could work in theory.
