The Pain Clinic with Jeremy Borash
This week on the Pain Clinic our special guest was Jeremy Borash. JB is venturing back to our fair state of New York for a TNA House Show in Glens Falls and Poughkeepsie this weekend.
Jeremy talks about being in Lowell, Massachusetts the night before. The place Samoa Joe won the TNA Championship. Jeremy promotes the shows for this night and the next. Glens Falls is the home of ‘Hacksaw’ Jim Duggan and we discuss it as well a his dad is the police chief there.
Mick Foley’s addition to TNA is examined by JB. He talks about how Mick fit in very well and the crowd loved his appearance. JB compares the WWE roster versus TNAs and he said TNA tops them in ability and overall skill. Mick Foley’s ‘shoot’ comments are talked about by JB and he said the material between JeffJarrett are closer to the real thing than you would think.
We talk about last weeks Impact and the feel for the show. JB talks about the HD conversion at the Impact Zone. This will happen in three weeks with the live show in Las Vegas.
JB is asked about how TNA can get the word out on Mick Foley joining TNA and how this can effect the ratings. Getting the word out is a difficult process. WWE has actually loss viewers over the same period that TNA has been in existence and TNA has maintained the same numbers.
Jeremy talks about the Spin Cycle. He clues us in to how it’s done and who the studio audience is. He talks about the real appeal for the show and talks about the next show coming up with Vince Russo, Terry Taylor, Disco Inferno and Simon Diamond.
This leads us into a discussion about Glenn “Disco Inferno” Gilberti. JB puts him over and so does the crew of the Pain Clinic.
Look for the Spin Cycle to appear soon on the Spike TV website.
We beg for a TNA show in Rochester (tongue in cheek style) and JB thinks they should come here too! Jeremy talks about growing up in Minnesota and compares it to Rochester.
Jeremy talks about the Impact from Las Vegas in three weeks. He recaps the history of the company and shows the growth as being slow but steady. He talks about the video games and promoting it at the house shows.
We let Jeremy go after he promotes “Bound For Glory” and a few words on Steve ‘Mongo’ McMichael.
You can hear Bret Hart on the Pain Clinic next Saturday October 11th at 10am.
