-- The UK newspaper The Sun posted an interview with Jeremy Borash where he spoke about Paul Heyman to TNA, Jim Ross and more. Check out the highlights:
On Jim Ross: "To me, he is the greatest of all time. If you can hear a guy that can bring excitement to a call, adds to the attraction rather than subtracts. "I think he is not given any sort of respect up there (in WWE). At least the respect he deserves. As an announcer, I'm personally offended by it. To me he is the greatest of all time and deserves to be treated that way. If we are going to treat Ric Flair like we treat Ric Flair because he's the greatest of all time then we should do it for Jim Ross too, because to me there has been no-one better. I hear stories about what's going on. Nightmares. To me as an announcer, that pisses me off. Big time."
On Paul Heyman: "When Paul was calling the shots (in ECW) and Paul had everything under control he aged himself about 30 years in the span of five, but he also could do things the way he wanted, and lived by his own rules. Unfortunately today that is impossible. You can't use copywritten music on your television show and get away with any more. You wouldn't see November Rain, great video as it was. You'd be sued and it would never make the air. Believe me, if we didn't have a bank of lawyers and a corporate office to answer to, I'd be running the show just the same way. Renegade, on the fly, go by your own whims. That's how Paul succeeded, when can call the shots and make his own decisions. Now, on the flip side, you don't want him handling your money. His place to shine is creative. In this day and age we have people who handle the money and people who handle the creative. For Paul coming in, if there was ever a political situation where it would have worked, this would have been it. But he has a reputation to protect and I don't think he'd doing anything going in thinking there's a chance he wouldn't succeed. I think in his life he's pretty content where he's at. I would have loved to have been part of a Paul Heyman era in TNA. Maybe someday it will happen."
