Dixie Carter is a Believable Heel

I have to admit that when I first read the spoilers for last night's IMPACT a week ago, I was very surprised at the reported Dixie Carter heel turn.  However, after watching how it unfolded last night, I am very impressed at how it came off.  The most poignant part of it was portrayed, in my opinion, in the tight camera shot on Dixie and AJ's faces.  I don't remember seeing that camera angle in any other TNA promo I have ever seen, and it really added to the intense promo with no crowd distractions involved.  Dixie did a wonderful job of starting out in the segment sounding meek and soft and then building to a startling crescendo of pure "vindictive boss" mode!

It has been said by Austin Aries, and our very own Shelbin, that last night's promo between AJ Styles and Dixie Carter opened Pandora's Box.  Truer words could not have been spoken in describing the potential shit storm (that's a good thing) that is to follow.  This could end up being the best hook that TNA has generated in years.  There are so many rumors surrounding what may come from this Dixie heel turn, but the most intriguing to me is the potential return of Jeff Jarrett to legit power and on-screen TNA management.  The Founder is almost certain to play a role in this storyline before it's all said and done. 

Can you imagine a TNA where Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff are gone, and Jeff Jarrett is back in control?  There are so many loyal TNA fans out there that would totally connect with that scenario of a power switch back to TNA's roots.  Most of the criticisms of TNA's struggles, talent releases and money issues could be wrapped up into one nice package in this storyline as it would delve into that kind of reality-type of programming.  At the root of this new development is the President of TNA, and she just showed that being an evil witch is just the tip of the iceberg of things to come.
