* She was once asked by Wrestling/JimCornette about why Wrestling/VinceRusso was hired and still working, where she addressed the, "Fire Russo" chants. Her reply, and misfires on playing a heel authority figure can be excused, misfires in angles or matches or championships can be excused. Her reply as COO of TNA rather than the evil character she plays where she threatens to fire someone else if the chant is heard again, that's inexcusable.

** Let's talk about the Lockbox match. Eight Knockouts would face off in four singles matches with the winner receiving a key to one of the four lockboxes. In those Lockboxes? One contained Tara's pet spider Poison (stolen in another storyline). Another was in order that she would have to do a striptease. One more box would be a title shot at the Knockouts Championship that allows for the challenger to come up with any stipulation she wants. And the last Lockbox? ''The Knockouts Championship itself''. Meaning that not only could the champion lose the title without being pinned, but she could also lose it ''despite winning the match''. Which is exactly what happened to Tara. She may have been able to win back Poison, but she lost her title to Angelina Love to basically the luck of the draw!

*** The fact that they're down to THREE members (four if you count Taz who is behind commentary which has gotten so bad you can hear him yakking even when the mutes on) and it is still going on. Something that should've ended months ago has been going on for a year and half despite being stale and nobody cares anymore about them.
** Finally at the tailend of 2013, it was put out of everyone's misery.

Total Nonstop Action (Wrestling/{{TNA}}) may be somewhat more hardcore than Wrestling/{{WWE}}, but it certainly shares its propensity for idiotic ideas. Of course, having your show staffed top-to-bottom with Wrestling/{{WCW}} alumni isn't a recipe for success. (In fact, Dixie Carter had everyone on [[Literature/TheDeathOfWCW this book cover]] employed at one point.)

* The promo which began TNA's October 14, 2010 show, as Jeff Hardy explained his heel turn. The actual promo itself only spans 27 minutes, but commercials jack it up to much longer. A 27 minute-long promo is still insanity. Ironically, Hogan cut promo at the beginning of the show stating "this is the show that brings you more wrestling."

* TNA brought in Jenna Morasca, a reality show contestant who'd won ''Survivor'' six years earlier, for a couple of months. She stuck around the Main Event Mafia and did absolutely nothing, then antagonized the hell out of Sharmell and ended up booked against her at''Victory Road 2009.'' After eight agonizing minutes of two non-wrestlers delivering one of the worst in-ring performances in women's wrestling history (or wrestling history, period), ''The Wrestling Observer'' gave it a "'''MINUS! FIVE! STARS!'''" rating, and the match soon found its way into ''Website/{{Botchamania}}'' (which later included a clip of this match in their intro) and [=420chan's=] ''Disasterpiece Theatre''. TNA reportedly paid Morasca half a million dollars for her TNA appearances. Soon after, TNA reportedly rejected a small pay raise for Gail Kim, which led her to leave TNA for WWE). While some claim Dixie Carter's unhealthy obsession with reality shows led to Morasca's signing, Kurt Angle had also starred with her in the horrible direct to-video movie ''End Game.'' Angle made a handful of low-budget movies around this time, thinking they would lead to bigger acting roles.

** [[http://411mania.com/wrestling/new-details-on-tnas-possible-investorsbuyers/ Her business plan to get TNA more investors]] is to offer them 10% of TNA's shares for investing so she can keep the controlling stake. That's basically asking people to donate money -- something no one is going to do thanks to Dixie's history of terrible business decisions. Just about everyone considers this ridiculous, as Dixie has had numerous chances and squandered all of them, not to mention the fact that the company might fold within the year at the rate it's going. If Dixie really cared about TNA, she'd sell the controlling stake as TNA won't live to see 2017 without an investor.
** You'd think that once [[Music/TheSmashingPumpkins Billy Corgan]] took over, things would get better, right? Not a chance. It was revealed that TNA is 3.4 million dollars in debt, and they're getting sued from all sides. Taxes, credit card bills, hell, '''Corgan himself sued her and the company!''' While Corgan lost the case, this resulted in Dixie finally, '''''finally''''' being ousted from being in charge of TNA, as she sold majority ownership to Anthem Sports and Entertainment (the owners of Fight Network), who left her with a '''''5%''''' ownership of the company and a token position within the company as far away from any actual corporate decision making as her only remaining tie to it.
