#2. The Game of Burying Dixie
It's hard NOT to feel bad for a woman like Dixie Carter. She really can't catch a break these days. Not from anyone.
Jake Roberts laid into her pretty good the other day, Hulk Hogan undermines her and her decisions every chance he gets, and now Ric Flair joins the popular club of burying Dixie in his latest shoot interview. Some of it is certainly justifiable, sure, but if the old saying of "when it rains, it pours" is true, Dixie must be drowning by now.
I just find it bothersome that everything is fine when these wrestlers need the money and Dixie is signing the paychecks. TNA is "good enough" for them when they are broke and have nowhere else to go, but as soon as they leave, their tune changes to the extreme opposite. And even those with position of power seem to always find a way to blame Dixie – it's NEVER their fault.
Most everyone would agree that competition in the wrestling business is a good thing, yet instead of genuinely trying to help Dixie succeed, they quietly take her money and run the first chance they get. But even that's not enough for some reason – they have to kick her a few times on the way out the door.
It's just the same song, over and over. I'm not trying to fight Dixie's battles, but someone needs to. She might not make the best decisions all the time, but one of her biggest faults is trusting (and paying) people like this.
