The Daily Star Interviews Dixie Carter

For the first time, her company will be filming their flagship TV show from London’s Wembley Arena on January 28.

It’s a double TV taping – two editions of Impact on one night.

Dixie, we’re happy to say, is a long time fan of FT. And the first lady of wrestling wasted no time in picking up the phone to us this week to tell the British fans what she has in store for them.

Legendary “Icon” Sting, for example, will be performing his final shows in front of a UK audience, she tells me. Indeed Wembley will be his last match on UK soil.

As the Californian ring hero has left and come back again twice in recent times, it does beg the question why? It is the first time he has set foot on British soil to wrestle in a decade.

Dixie says: “In his mind, I think this is his last year as far as the wrestling is concerned.

“When we booked this, that’s the way he was talking about it – ‘I haven’t played there in a decade, and before I retire I need to come back there and wrestle.’

“Based on where he’s at and what he’s saying, barring something extraordinary this is the last time.

“And for me it’s great to be able to bring him back there.

“He’s spent such a big part of his career helping to build our company, I’m very proud we can bring him over.

“It feels very final. It’s going to be an emotional night.”

What of Mr Hogan? Will he be making the trip too?

Dixie says he’s been laid up of late after dental surgery. She told me: “The truth is I haven’t heard from Hulk in a while.

“He knows what’s going on – he’s a businessman, and he knows that it’s an important date for us. He will be eyeing that very carefully.

“He’s been gone from the scene. My goal would be to have him there. You’ll be the first to know if he is.”

Despite recent rumours to the contrary, British standouts will play a full part in proceedings.

Doug Williams, Magnus and Mark Haskins will all be on the tour.

Says Dixie: “There’s no doubt that those guys have done a lot of groundwork so they deserve to be on the show.

“One thing to be proud of now, though, is that being British is not just a gimmick.

“They are great wrestlers who happen to be from England.”

Dixie is beside herself with excitement about the whole tour. The cameras will be in Manchester and Nottingham too.

In fact, she admits she’s got nothing else on the brain right now.

She tells me: “When I left the last TV taping in Orlando yesterday, I was thinking about London – just thinking about walking into the building and the different feel it’s going to be. Ten times the craziness going on backstage.

“We’ve got such a great team. We are stepping off the ledge but I know we won’t fall. I know we will pull it off.

“I’m excited. It’s giving me butterflies.”
