TNA President Dixie Carter Fires Back At Vince McMahon's Insulting Comments
Earlier this week, Vince McMahon spoke to the Hollywood Reporter and had some harsh words regarding TNA Wrestling’s television programming. The WWE Chairman said:
“My concern with TNA is that they are TV-14, and we are PG. They have to change with the times. I think some of the things they do on television are reprehensible, but it is a TV-14 rating. That’s the only bone I have to pick with them. Their TV ratings are a fraction of ours.”
Now, TNA President Dixie Carter is firing back at Vince, claiming that what happens on the PG-rated Monday Night Raw is worse than anything on TNA iMPACT! Carter told the UK Sun:
“I think it’s wonderful that Vince watches TNA iMPACT. “And I agree with him that things such as the brutal beating of a sixty-year-old man [Jericho-Flair], a vicious home invasion [Triple H-Orton] and gratuitous man-on-woman violence [Orton-Stephanie] can be seen as reprehensible – and that’s just the last three Monday nights.”
While Vince can make the argument that some of TNA’s more outlandish angles (such as Samoa Joe putting a knife to Scott Steiner’s throat) are “reprehensible,” it’s his own WWE product that bears the family-friendly TV-PG rating and is overtly marketed to children.
