Who was injured during the tapings?
- TNA President Dixie Carter was said to have been legitimately hurt after she took her bump through a table during last night's Impact Wrestling tapings in New York City. According to PWInsider, Carter was reportedly very banged up, though Bully Ray did everything possible to protect her. Carter received a sit-down powerbomb through a table, similar to a spot he did on Mae Young in the WWE.
Even if she was protected, Carter is not trained as a wrestler. One wrestler reportedly said, "If you aren't calloused to it, even one bump is going to feel like a car wreck. Of course she got hurt. That was the first bump she ever took in her life."
Stories from backstage include Carter suffering a concussion and/or aggravated an existing back issue. Multiple sources within the company are claiming it was a legitimate injury for Carter, but there are some who think it is a work to sell the storyline.
Several people in the company were also said to be impressed with Carter taking the bump in order to see the storyline through. The plan was to have Carter's bump close out the current storyline. She was stretchered out of the ring after the bump.
