Reason For Karen Jarrett’s Removal From TV, Dixie Carter Speaks Out, Preview For Next Week’s Impact Wrestling, More

December 18, 2011   ·   0 Comments

— TNA Wrestling President Dixie Carter was recently profiled in The Tennessean. She spoke with reporter Bobby Allyn about the marketing and business of professional wrestling and the TV market to which it appeals. The interview is available here.

— Eric Young, Robbie E and Winter are scheduled to compete at tonight’s Family Wrestling Entertainment event at 3 Legged Dog Studios (located on 80 Greenwich Street, New York, New York). Visit www.fwewrestling.com for more information.

— Sunday at Final Resolution, Jeff Jarrett was defeated by Jeff Hardy in a Steel Cage Match. As per stipulation of the match, either Jeff or Karen Jarrett would be fired at Sting’s discretion on Thursday’s episode of Impact Wrestling. Sting, however, decided to fire both Jarretts.

Many assumed that only Jeff would be fired via storyline since he’s overseeing TNA’s satellite promotion based in India, which is conducting television tapings this week and next month. Karen was written off television as well since she is scheduled to undergo surgery on her foot, which will keep her sidelined for an unspecified amount of time.

— As reported earlier, Kim Neilson, who appeared for TNA Wrestling from 2002 to 2004 as Desire, is a contestant on the upcoming season of the NBC reality television series The Biggest Loser premiering January 3, 2012. She is billed as a former professional wrestler and the show’s producers are looking to air footage from her days in the Nashville based promotion. They contacted a YouTube account featuring footage of her in TNA asking who owns its rights.

After leaving the professional wrestling industry in 2004, she became pregnant with her third child, stopped exercising and started overeating. Now a single mother of three at age 38, Neilson weighs 252 pounds and says she is tired of hiding from wrestling fans, friends and family because of the way she looks.
