-- As noted earlier, TNA announcer Jeremy Borash was a guest on the "Right After Wrestling" radio show last night and spoke in-depth about TNA iMPACT! leaving Monday nights, TNA releasing talent soon and more. Regarding to TNA iMPACT! moving back to Thursday nights, Borash said, "I think it's definitely a different era. It would have been nice to re-capture the competitive spirit of being on Monday nights, but at the end of the day, it was just more of an inconvenience. Perhaps being back on Thursday nights, we can prosper and thrive. At the same time, I would have liked to have stuck it out a little bit longer on Mondays, especially at a point where there were very exciting programs that we did produce." He added, "There are a lot of things about the Monday Night Wars that we could have taken part in and really brought some popularity to the idea of it again." Borash was also asked about the online reports that TNA will be letting go 15-20 superstars in coming weeks in order to save money. "I don't know if you look at it as roster cuts. You don't say anything or we don't hear anything about when we spend more money to hire people. When you say 'roster cuts,' it obviously invokes an 'oooh' kind of feeling to it," Borash said. "At the same time, we have 60-something people under contract, so I think it's a natural evolution of business. Sometimes you do have to trim the fat. The programs are being written differently where less people are being featured more prominently."
Yeah I mean they were up against Wrestlemania and the draft so it was always going to be hard.
That's true and the money saved can be used better in payrises for those hugely underpaid.
Which is a good thing as shows don't feel as rushed and you have less to remember due to storylines and segments being between less folks.

Quote Jeremy Borash, who has done everything for TNA Wrestling but compete in a wrestling match, noted today on Twitter that he is an officially licensed wrestler in seven states.

"Just finished up a boatload of paperwork and legal documents," he wrote. "I'm an officially licensed wrestler in 7 states. Who wants some?"

Is this a sign of things to come?
Is Borash going to be revealed as the man behind the Suicide mask?
Since it's TNA, I think the whole states Borash need to worry about were: Disarray and Confusion.

Quote WWEHall of Famer Jim Ross interviewed" rel="nofollow - Impact Wrestling ’s" rel="nofollow - Jeremy Borash for" rel="nofollow - podcast. Here are the highlights: 

On Scott D’Amore and Don Callis running" rel="nofollow - Impact Wrestling :

“The transition has been great and I think with Scott D’Amore we’ve seen what he [has] brought to the table. I’ve worked with him for well over a decade… actually, way longer than that, come to think of it. Now, it [has] been too long I’ve actually worked with him now, so he [has] been along the ride and he [has] been one of those guys you know is going to be right in the thick of things with you. As far as Don Callis goes, I’ve met him and worked with him a few times and I think he represents a good corporate side of things. He has experience in the boardroom, which is important these days. Actually, as a media company, you’ve got to know what you’re doing in there. And as things progress, it’s not necessarily hitting the reset button because I think that has been done a few times. Really, I think a whole new outlook from a business standpoint on where this is going and where it needs to go to survive.”

On how The Hardys wanted to bring in Borash for their latest WWE run:

“We [Borash and the Hardys] wanted to continue to work together no matter where it was. Yeah, it was one of those [things] where we had such chemistry together that we really felt like after at some point, things could have gone in any direction and we really could have gone on to call our own shots as well. Obviously, there [were] different things that happened and it was one of those things that happened so fast. And we just had such a great chemistry together creatively. We had series options. We had a lot of things on the table before it all happened and they ended up going back to WWE.”

Not sure about D'Amore or Callis. In the grand scheme of the business as a whole, they haven't achieved that much, so time will tell if they are any better behind the scenes.
Reading between the lines I would say Borash would have gone to E but didn't get a offer. Maybe E see him as too much of a Impact guy? It's different if it's their long term wrestlers like Joe, Styles etc.
It's a shame really because he'd be a good addition, especially presenting Network content.
