Marty Hotts sent along the following radio interview recap with Jeremy Borash:
Jeremy Borash was on "Right After Wrestling" radio January 18, 2010
The show can be downloaded here:
Host asks about the Pay-Per-View and Eric Bischoff of March of 2009 interview saying "Borash shouldn’t be on television". Borash said it has been an interesting couple of days. He said he has seen a lot of things at TNA but Sunday will be a night he won’t forget, that’s what he’ll say about that situation.
Host asks about switching to four sides and if you’re going against WWE, you can differentiate from WWE or simulate them. JB says he wish he could shed some light on it but the truth is he doesn’t know much. He showed up Sunday and there was a new ring at the arena and he saw what happened when the show opened.
JB says to him he would bet that the inkling out of the whole situation is that they haven’t seen the last of the six-sided ring as they are using it on the UK tour. He doesn’t know what the situation is for doing it. He thought it separated TNA from the WWE from a visual stamdpoint – being something different, but he also heard what Hulk Hogan said and Hogan has a point. JB said he would like to leave it up to the fans and see an online voting to see what the fans think of it. That’s his take. As far as the guys and what they think of it, he says everyone has a different opinion. He said at the end of the day, what matters in the ring is what matters regardless of the number of sides.
Host says the fans spoke out during Hogan’s speech. Host says Bischoff took JB out of television (whether it is a work or real). JB has worn many hats since the beginning. For the short term, JB is going to the UK tour. He’s probably going to pick up his last pay check as far as his on-air talent goes for the time being. He will head to UK a little early to backpack around Europe before the tour starts.
At the end of the day, JB was really honestly touched by the support on Facebook/Twitter to see how upset fans were about it. He said after something like that happens, you want to have some sort of gratification that somebody cares. He said the fans in the arena blew up when it happened. He said at the end of the day, he is a major part of the company no matter what it is.
