Report: Dixie Carter Not High On Putting Stock Into Lashley

Nick Paglino

PWTorch.com is reporting that although TNA President Dixie Carter was initially very high on Bobby Lashley, her interest in pushing him as a main event player has diminished. Carter is currently pushing for a youth movement in TNA, and wants to focus the company around the upcoming pushes of AJ Styles, Hernandez and Matt Morgan.

While Bobby Lashley is still considered useful to TNA, Dixie Carter doesn’t want to give him too much of a push as his MMA career will be an obvious distraction for Lashley down the line. Carter and TNA feel that they would rather focus the company around wrestlers who are full-time with TNA as opposed to talent who take frequent breaks to pursue other interests.
