Jeremy Borash’s history
Bob Ryder pitched the idea of a WCW radio show with Jeremy Borash in mind to Eric Bischoff. After Bischoff gave his backing, WCW Live was premiered through WCW.com as one of the earliest online wrestling radio shows.
WCW Live! premiered in March 1999 to an online audience and the show had Hollywood Hogan as Jeremy Borash’s first guest. The show continued to receive many applauds and became a sensation. Borash would go on to become creatively involved with WCW as one of the head writers for WCW Monday Nitro and WCW Thunder.
Career with TNA
Borash was one of TNA’s long-term employees, dating back to the company’s formation in 2002. He performed a number of roles with TNA, most notably being ring announcing, commentating and taking backstage interviews at different points of the show. In 2006, Borash was given the role of a backstage interviewer. It was a role which Borash desired since he had spent his childhood days idolising Gene Okerlund.
One of Borash’s most memorable contribution at TNA was the first ever British Bootcamp series held in 2013. He drafted in stars like Marty Scurll, The Blossom Twins, and Rockstar Spud to produce a wonderful season. The idea was inspired by WWE’s Tough Enough format and he made it up to date by presenting the struggles of becoming a professional wrestler. By the end of the show, both Scurll and Spud became more popular and household names.
In March 2017, Jeff Jarrett approached Borash to play the role of the new lead announcer for Impact Wrestling. This move resulted in a feud between Borash and former WWE announcer Josh Mathews, which resulted in a No DQ effort match between Borash and Abyss against Matthews and Scott Steiner. The match was won by Borash’s team.
On 30th January 2018, several sources confirmed that Borash has been hired by the World Wrestling Entertainment.
