TNA Wrestling President Dixie Carter wrote a message on Twitter thanking fans for the ‘great rating’ TNA’s return to U.K. airwaves garnered Tuesday night: “Thanks to our UK fans for the great rating for Tuesday’s TNA return to UK TV on Challenge! TNA is back full force, and so are our UK viewers.”
TNA Wrestling President Dixie Carter did not attend last week’s iMPACT! tapings. She’s usually on hand for the entire first day of tapings and at least a portion of the second day. It’s not considered an issue as she had just returned from the company’s tour overseas.
Ric Flair also missed last week’s tapings, due to an injury he suffered to his rotator cuff while working a match against Douglas Williams in London, England. Rewrites were made as the WWE Hall of Famer was scheduled to appear at the tapings. His absence was not attributed to an altercation the previous week in Europe that resulted in him missing an event in Germany. It is said that Flair and management have made peace.
