Hyping a TNA Wrestling promotional event in the UK, Borash wrote yesterday morning, "United Kingdom TNA fans ... HUGE news coming in the next 24hrs. Stay tuned."
The fan, Ian Gregory, replied minutes later, "hope your put the UK fans out of their misery and take this **** off the air over here @TNADixie."
Approximately an hour later, Gregory received a private message from Borash's account that read "I hope your whole family dies."
The message upset Gregory because his parents are already dead.
A video was posted on YouTube to prove that it is not a photoshop.
Borash addressed the situation this morning on Twitter, denying the accusations.
"For the record, the many of you that know me online know I would never wish harm on anyone or anyone's family," he wrote. "Twitter has been contacted."
Independent women's wrestler Lizzy Valentine (who has worked for TNA in the past), a friend of Gregory, doesn't believe Borash. She relayed his accusations on her Facebook and Twitter accounts and said he wouldn't lie.
"No he's not a liar, he's one of my best buds!" she wrote. "Borash denying it isn't proof of anything."
"I dont want death wished upon my fans. #Iwantwrestling."
