Dixie Carter was on Bubba The Love Sponge Friday morning to promote Bound For Glory. It began with Bubba putting over the TNA rosters by naming all the talent he likes (all WWE/WCW name).

Dixie brought up the Christian/Samoa Joe match & Bubba said screw Samoa Joe that Christian is his guy & that Vince never knew what he had with him.

Bubba brought up rumors that Dixie was talking to both Hall & Nash about coming in & Dixie corrected him & said Nash has been with them for some time now.

Bubba mentioned he doesn’t watch as much TNA as he wished & that the other night his 5 yr old son was flipping through the channels & said “Daddy its wrestling” & Bubba was surprised it was on & saw the video of Angle watching Sting’s son & they discussed how Sting never worked for Vince but does for Dixie and how Sting is now reinvented & gives so much back to the industry.

Bubba brought up the recent WWE ratings slide and that Vince must be feeling the heat from TNA like he did with WCW (no mention of TNA’s ratings and/or buyrates). Dixie said she worries about her own company and said she has the best in ring talent and storylines in wrestling. She mentioned the Kurt Angle watching Sting’s son play sports as an example.

Dixie mentioned she would love to bring in Hogan & maybe someday it can happen.

She spoke about the high morale that TNA has in its locker room and its one big group instead of a roster of egos.

They discussed that Dixie prefers to stay off camera while Vince doesn’t and that Dixie likes to meet all the TNA fans that spends money on tickets, PPV and the upcoming toys.

Bubba brought up Karen Angle and that if they focus on her she can bring ratings.

Bubba asked if there was a chance Vince would buy TNA. Dixie said they would not sell.

They gave one last plug for BFG, only mentioning Sting vs. Angle. As Dixie was hanging up Brent (BTLS producer) also mentioned they are on Spike TV every week and Bubba brought up they were given another hour recently.
