November 5, 2009 – TNA IMPACT: TNA President Dixie Carter addressed all of the TNA employees in an empty IMPACT Zone.TNA President Dixie Carter addressed all of the TNA employees, who sat there in the empty arena basically out of character listening to their boss talk about the changes in TNA Wrestling. Most of the key backstage players ? writers, agents, etc. ? were sitting on the edge of the ring behind Dixie. The TNA roster was assured that there were more changes on the way. Dixie said she knows there were employees with differing opinions, but she expects everyone to support her 100%. Dixie said when someone questions things that happen in the company, they are questioning her ? and she cannot allow that to happen. Dixie said business was about choices, and she chose to put her finances, her reputation, her passion, and her love behind the wrestlers and TNA. Dixie said they could choose to support the direction TNA is going or they can find some other place to work. Dixie said it was time to swing for the fenses, and no great success comes without risk ? she is great with that, and hopes they are too. Dixie said she was proud of her employees, but this is a test and it’s time to step it up. Dixie said if they don’t believe it they are hurting the person sitting next to them, hurting her, and hurting the fans. Dixie said let’s show everybody what we’re all about.

Dixie Carter made an appearance on the December 8th edition of IMPACT Wrestling, along with Sting to confront TNA World Heavyweight Champion, Bobby Roode. The segment ended with Roode spitting in Carter’s face.
In the summer of 2012 Carter was also the focal point in a storyline where Kazarian and Christopher Daniels accused her of having an affair with company TNA mainstay A.J. Styles. The duo provided compromising footage of Carter and Styles entering a hotel together as well as photographs of them embracing.

It was ultimately revealed that Carter and Styles were merely helping a mutual friend, Claire Lynch, work through drug addiction issues.
Total Nonstop Action Wrestling – 2013:
Dixie Carter appeared at the ending segment of IMPACT Wrestling on September 19, 2013 to confront AJ Styles over the remarks he has made about the way she was running the company.

~~~She added that Styles would still be living in poverty if her father didn’t pay him and she was the one who created this house (TNA). She was about to leave when Styles was going to respond, she decided to end the show by cutting off the microphones and turning off the lights, thus turning heel in the process.
On the following episode of IMPACT Wrestling, Dixie Carter ripped up AJ Styles’ new contract as awarded by Hulk Hogan, then gave Hogan an ultimatum to join forces with her by next week.
~~~Hogan declined her offer and quit, Carter initially begged him to reconsider, but then claimed Hogan could not quit because she had fired him, though Hogan had already walked off camera by this point.
