Dixie Carter on TV on the road, product

After TNA President Dixie Cater and Eric Bischoff met with Spike TV officials in New York on April 11, Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported the following:

- Dixie Carter said she was in favor of taping Impact Wrestling on the road, but it costs nearly $500,000 in total for the company to do so. She added they can't put the company through that kind of "financial drain," especially if it doesn't work out.

- She said that there will be more focus on the younger talent. She added the recent period of pushing younger talent on top and somewhat lower ratings as an investment in the future and pushing home grown stars.

- Carter said that the company needs a second television show as two hours per week isn't enough.

- She stays in touch with Bellator's Bjorn Rebney and talking about ideas to help each other.

- Carter said that 12 PPV events a year is too many and expects that number to be lowered in the next year or two.

- More international touring is expected in 2013 including new markets like Mexico and Australia.  The target is to hold 100-110 live events per year with 10-15 being held overseas.

- Carter also said she thinks Sting is in for the long haul and will be back in 2013.
