• Former TNA President Dixie Carter Reacts To Randy Orton Mentioning Her On SmackDown
As seen on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live, 13 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton cut a promo on SmackDown Live about AJ Styles and mentioned former TNA Wrestling President Dixie Carter in it.
Below is what Orton said in his promo:
“This is the house that AJ Styles built, right? Well, what I don’t understand is, in 2002 AJ Styles was wrestling for $10 a night in a high school gymnasium, in front of 12 people, while I was here making my WWE in-ring debut. In 2004, AJ Styles was shaking hands with his opponents in the bingo halls and I was here becoming the youngest WWE Champion ever.
In 2005, AJ was down in Florida getting a tan with Dixie Carter while I was here facing The Undertaker at WrestleMania. In 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, I was here and I was a champion. This isn’t the house that AJ Styles built, this house was built long before AJ Styles ever stepped foot in this ring. This is the house that Randy Orton built!”
This line from Orton got Dixie trending on Twitter and below is what Dixie tweeted about it:
