After the Monday Night RAW following Great Balls of Fire on July 10, former chairman of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling Dixie Carter will appear on Kurt Angle’s WWE 24 documentary on the WWE Network.
Dixie Carter and TNA hit a home run when WWE grand slam champion Kurt Angle came to her company in 2006 following a messy departure from WWE.
Angle spent the better part of a decade wrestling under Carter and the TNA umbrella, coming back to WWE this year to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame during WrestleMania weekend and then taking over as the current RAW general manager.
On the post-Great Balls of Fire episode of RAW, Angle will likely appear backstage in some form or fashion and then WWE will show his WWE 24 documentary that will feature people such as Vince McMahon himself … and Dixie Carter.
Here’s more from WWE in the official news release on Carter appearing in Angle’s documentary:
"WWE Network’s popular documentary series, WWE 24, will go behind the scenes of WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle’s journey home to WWE in a brand-new episode this Monday. WWE 24 – Kurt Angle: Homecoming will premiere immediately following Raw on the award-winning WWE Network and include several captivating interviews with Angle and those who know him best.The latest installment of WWE 24 will feature exclusive commentary from many of Angle’s closest friends and colleagues, including Mr. McMahon and Dixie Carter, who worked with The Olympic Gold Medalist from 2006 to 2016."
This probably seems a bit crazy to have Carter on WWE programming being that WWE has hardly ever acknowledge other rival wrestling companies, specifically TNA, which is now known as Global Force Wrestling after a change to Impact Wrestling a few years prior.
But, it makes perfect sense. Angle was with TNA longer than he was with WWE. He’s widely known for his WWE career, but he had some high-quality moments in TNA and having Carter on to talk about Angle and his career under her company is smart from WWE. You know people will tune in to the WWE Network to see if this is real or not.
Oh, it’s real. It’s damn real.
