She told me how at age 26, just "like the lyrics of a bad country song", she packed her bags and drove to Nashville, Tennessee.There, she started a marketing and artist management company looking after a broad range of people from country music legend Tanya Tucker to Allison Fisher, the top British born billiards player who has won 11 world titles.
Dixie's company also represents wrestling legend Hulk Hogan.It is Dixie – and everything she stands for – who is clearly responsible for Hulk settling with the TNA. And I am lucky and excited to have joined her for the Impact Wrestling World Tour at Wembley Arena.Under Dixie's guidance, the TNA appeals to a broad demographic, not just a PG-13 audience and diehard wrestling fans. I practically bit her hand off when she told me I could meet Hulk Hogan. If you think you saw a demonstrably excited woman in the audience at the wrestling last Saturday night ... What a fascinating story of woman who, in nine short years, has built a global entertainment empire – not by imposing a culture of corporatism and headlocks but with sense, sensitivity and the support of some of wrestling's best known legends.Kurt is also a great talker and so charismatic, and maybe he’s the best in-ring talent, ever.He also made sure that everyone he wrestled had their best match.
