Dixie Carter To Appear On WWE Programming For The Very First Time

Former TNA Wrestling President, Dixie Carter, is to appear on the WWE Network for the very first time in her life. She is going to appear in the "WWE 24 - Kurt Angle: Homecoming" documentary that is going to air exclusively on the WWE Network this Monday after Raw.

WWE.com made the shocking announcement today that has surprised the wrestling industry. The WWE had been avoiding TNA (its closest competition) for many years, although now the company has been slightly warm towards them. You can read the announcement below.

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.

It's funny as part of the announcement, WWE still refuses to name drop TNA or Impact Wrestling. The only person that I remember talking about TNA on the WWE Network was when Stone Cold Steve Austin was interviewing AJ Styles last year. It's possible this new Kurt Angle documentary should reference TNA and/or Impact Wrestling by name.

If you did not know already, Kurt Angle left the WWE back in 2006 due to getting addicted to painkillers. He took a lot of painkillers due to the brutal schedule. Dixie Carter extended the olive branch to Angle in 2006 offering him more rest and a lighter schedule. There have been some bumps on the road, but Angle is now healthier and is back with the WWE.

WWE has been reaching out to a lot of wrestling personnel for documentaries on the WWE Network. In the past, we've seen the likes of Vince Russo, Eric Bischoff and Jim Cornette doing interviews. Carter is a different story though because she was never a former employee of the company.
