When TNA was doing the announcer switch between the first and second hours I thought it was a bad idea like many others, but I, along with many others, thought Jeremy Borash did a really good job behind the announcers desk and I'm just curious why TNA didn't give him more of an opportunity to announce on Impact and why he is so under utilized as a TNA personality?

The only answer I can give is he is not in the right camp. Todd Keneley is a favorite of Eric Bischoff, which got him the spot he has.  Borash didn't have an Uncle Eric pushing for him.  I agree, he is really good and underused on-screen.

I was just wondering where is Jeff Jarrett? Is he still involved with TNA in any capacity, does he still have any type of ownership in the company or did he sell it all to Dixie and Panda Energy? Do you think he is done as in ring performer?

Jarrett still works in the Nashville office and still holds an ownership stake as far as I know.  Whether he will return to TV, I don't know.  I never understood why he was taken off to begin with.

I'm kinda mad as hell about the Orton/Swagger match. You clearly hear Orton tell Swagger "chopblock" clear as day as Orton throws him against the ropes. I know it isn't real but they could at least act like they give a crap about the tradition and the fans by at least trying not to be heard in the ring. Your thoughts?

 Calling spots is not easy now that the cameras are so high tech.  Stuff that wouldn't get picked up years ago does today.  Plus with both guys having short hair they can't whisper the spots and use the hair to hide them talking.  It's just the way it is.  They do try and hide it but stuff happens.  It doesn't bother me.

What does WWE have against dominant heels? Specifically dominant, monster heels.

It is not WWE, it's Vince McMahon.  And only he can explain it.  He forgets that back in the days of Hulk Hogan, his hero sold a lot.  He got beat up, bled and was beaten down.  That is why when he hulked up and did his thing, people cheered.  The outcome was in doubt.  It is the exact opposite with John Cena and why Vince can't see that I can't tell you because I don't understand it myself.

Why wasn't John Cena counted out at Extreme Rules? Ryback was standing. Was It planned that Cena would win, but he got legitimately hurt in the end? Or was it a work to extend this feud? Makes no sense not to give the belt to Ryback. Ryback is the king of world title no finish matches. I was hoping the Shield was going to beat up Cena and help Ryback win the title. Cena is in desparate need of tweaking his gimmick. I think he is a great role model for the kids. But bland and incredibly boring for anyone over age 10.

It was booked that way and it was ridiculous.  I totally agree with you.
