Dixie Carter has been interested in signing other UK wrestlers and has expressed interest in other "Gladiators" in the past, so the recent announcement of signing Nick Aldis is sort of a buy one get one free.
In the past she showed interest in Gladiator, Wolf, and in UK high spot wrestler, Pac, but neither ended up being signed.
Currently TNA has UK wrestler, Doug Williams, under contract for a limited of dates.
