According to Pwinsider, WWE has hired long time TNA & Impact Wrestling employee Jeremy Borash. Impact Wrestling has confirmed to the site that he is leaving. Borash was backstage at the WWE events over the last several days in Philadelphia, but initially was telling those who asked that he was just visiting friends; the word at last night’ Raw is that he’s signed. Borash was doing commentary voiceovers for upcoming episodes of Impact Wrestling this past Thursday and was at Friday night’s House of Hardcore event in Philly filming material for Impact, which appears to be his final duties for the company.

Borash had worked in so many roles for the company since 2002, including ring announcing, commentating and doing backstage interviews at different points in front of the camera. With his departure, that means that Impact will be airing several months of Impact with a lead announcer that is not coming back. Borash was also on the creative team, worked with the Hardys on the Broken Universe concept, and was the main reason that the British Bootcamp reality series came to life. Borash also ran live events through the years, and was a big part of the company’s social media presence.

Many considered Borash the MVP of TNA/Impact Wrestling for years, and that he’d be a lifer with the company.
