From Eric Bischoff's page:

Just had a beer here in Nashville. Bartender asked me I worked for the boss "Jeremy Borash". When I asked "WTF" that was supposed to mean, I was told emphatically that Jeremy has represented himself as an "owner" of TNA. Jeremy is a low rent bit player who should be fortunate he has a job.


Now if Borash is kayfabing the local watering holes for beers and or poon, that's hilarious. However he works his ass off for the company, even going to India as part of their fed other there. Eric shows up and collects a paycheck by shoving his green-ass son down everyone's throat.

I agree. Bischoff should be lucky to have a job, he's done NOTHING
imo, for TNA & certainly NOT as valuable as Borash, again just my opinion. This is no different than whats happened in the wrestling biz for probably 30/40 yrs.

Eric's a dick.  Borash runs the house shows for them.  My guess is the person who said that to Bischoff got confused.

If Eric Bischoff had drawn anything other than flies in the last decade, I'd be more inclined to listen to anything he had to say.

Are we all really commenting on some gossip from a bartender? I feel dirty.

I was more focused on Eric getting butthurt over some gossip from a bartender.

That cracked me up.  I could just imagine Eric calling up his best butt buddy Hogan and saying how hurt he is that some bartender had the gall to not know who he is

Seems strange that Bischoff would post about this on Facebook if he was legitimately pissed about it. Seems more like he's twisting Borash's nuts just to entertain himself.

Eric sees himself as a big-shot businessman who ran a multi-million dollar company and he handles an internal issue with an employee by believing a rumor started by a bartender and posting about it on Facebook?  Yeah, Borash is the one who looks bad here.

Mike Johnson is getting all hot and bothered:

Anyone who has followed TNA knows that Jeremy Borash pretty much lives on the road for TNA, going back and forth from Europe to the United States working a ring announcer, house show producer and a TV announcer for the company. Beyond that, he's worked in production and creative ends and helped build the social media side of the promotion. During the early era of the company, he did a yeoman's work at pretty much anything and everything that was needed. To be fair, he wasn't alone as lots of others did and do the same, but anyone who's ever worked there knows what a utility player Borash has been for TNA since the Nashville PPV era.

For Bischoff to go online at 1 am in the morning (Nashville time) and write that anyone is lucky to have their job is a downright insulting and pathetic thing for anyone to say, much less a top executive in any company talking about someone they are supposed to be producing and overseeing as a talent. It's hardly the thing that breeds loyalty and inspires anyone to work hard for the place they work for - and that's not factoring in that Borash has been there since day one of the company, when employees were hardly making anything.

As top wrestler in the company texted to me this AM, "Either Bischoff is trying to get heat or he just outed how much he doesn't know or care about TNA."

I really, really, really hope it's the former. If it's the latter, even if Bischoff believes he was 100% in the right for making the comment and calling out Borash, the trickle down effect of emasculating an employee publicly is something Dixie Carter has to address. WWE would never, ever tolerate someone of power doing that publicly and neither should TNA. Could you imagine Kevin Dunn writing that about say, Michael Hayes, in public?

Hopefully Bischoff also used Facebook to try and schedule a European tour.

Is that Mike Johnson from "Slam" in Canada? if so, Mike's a great guy and I see nothing wrong with what he said.

I don't even have to look at who posts anymore - when I laugh my ass off out loud, I pretty much already know.

Borash is a fucking mark who's never sold a ticket in his life.  I see him to this day as see the 19 year old kid who was doing the WCW hotline shows after the PPVs back in 96.  Good for Bischoff.  Put the dufus in his place.

What place does it put him in?  As a hard worker that has helped build a company from the ground up, that beyond all of their pitfalls, is still around?

The guy who hasn't done shit for that company in the 2+ years he's been there is talking shit about it's employee who wasn't even there to defend himself?

Yeah, he sure put him in his place. 

Bischoff is a tool.
