    Even Borash has left.

    Post by Spudz on Tue Jan 30, 2018 12:29 pm

    damn, did not see this coming..

    from pwinsider
    Longtime Impact Wrestling personality Jeremy Borash has been hired by World Wrestling Entertainment, PWInsider.com has confirmed. Several Impact sources confirmed this morning that Borash has given them notice that he was leaving.

    Borash was backstage at the WWE events over the last several days in Philadelphia, but initially was telling those who asked that he was just visiting friends. However, the word backstage at Raw last night was that Borash has been hired by WWE.

    Borash was doing commentary voiceovers for upcoming episodes of Impact Wrestling this past Thursday and was at Friday night's House of Hardcore event in Philly filming material for Impact as well, which appear to have been his final duties for the company.
    Borash, 43, even sat in on the production meeting for the NXT Takeover: Philadelphia show, according to several sources.

    It’s not an understatement that Borash was in many ways the heart and soul of Impact Wrestling behind the scenes. His exit is probably one of the most shocking in Impact history. The departure is as major as Gene Okerlund jumping from Verne Gagne’s American Wrestling Association to the WWF in the 1980s in terms of perception, only it’s a far worse loss for Impact.
    Borash has been one of the longest tenured Impact employees, dating back to the company's formation in 2002. He held many different hats there, most notably ring announcing, commentating and doing backstage interviews at different points in front of the camera. In recent months, he had been the lead announcer, which means WWE just signed Impact’s lead announcer right after Impact has tons of episodes with his work in the can that will air for the next several months.

    Behind the scenes, Borash was really the company MVP as he could be counted on to handle everything asked of him. He worked on the creative side and was a tireless producer and content creator forthe company, most famously editing and putting together the Hardy "Broken Universe" material and Impact's British Bootcamp reality series. He would run production and execution of live events. He spearheaded the company’s dive into social media and was a massive cheerleader for all things Impact Wrestling.

    Borash was the glue that at times, helped to hold Impact together behind the scenes. He was the constant that could always be counted on by those running the company, especially in the Dixie Carter era. Without Borash, that company will never be the same. It cannot be overstated: this is a massive loss.

    It would be funny if after all these years of declining ratings, talent leaving and countless doomsday prophecies about TNA's future, that the irreparable death blow is Jeremy Borash.

    according to Pwinsider
    The Jeremy Borash hire was a Triple H call and according to numerous sources, he will be working in the developmental/NXT system going forward. It does not appear he was brought on board to take part in the Matt Hardy storyline, but there's always a chance he could be tapped to work on that. There's no word when Borash officially starts with WWE but one would think he would be at the NXT tapings in Atlanta, GA this week. There's also no word as to where he will appear on screen.

    At this point is Scott D’Amore the only creative member left from the “old regime” in TNA/IMPACT/GFW/whatever the fuck?

    JB always seemed like he was interested in making TNA a better product (at least that’s always the perception that I got). Hopefully this WWE deal is lucrative enough for him to end his career there.

    Imagine if he had left a few years back, I don't think the ashes of TNA would be around..Dixie would have folded, cause Boresh wouldn't have been there to glue things. Look how much he aged in the last few years, that cause he did so much. Wonder if he was upset that he got passed over for a executive role after all the work he done over the years.

    Great Job, JB but this guy Don Callis, works for New Japan and friends with people like Jericho & Omega but keep the hard work up.. in fact we going reward you with more work, more traveling to film material for Impact and these new special twitch shows, you also now host the New LAW and even though play by play announcing isn't your strong point, we going keep you in that role. Oh can you take a small pay cut ?
