Impact Wrestling Executives Ed Nordholm and Scott D’Amore recently spoke with Newsweek, and during the interview, the Impact officials discussed the state of the company following the departure of top talents such as EC3, Bobby Lashley, Laurel Van Ness, and as we reported yesterday, Jeremy Borash.

Anthem Sports and Entertainment’s Ed Nordholm had the following to say, confirming Jeremy Borash is indeed headed to WWWE:

“[Borash] is leaving and joining the WWE. We wish him all the best. He’s a talented guy and has been with the company forever. But we have a lot of talented guys—change is good and it gives other guys a chance to step up.”

Nordholm also commented on Bobby Lashley’s future following his Impact departure:

“Bobby is free to figure out what he wants to do next, whether it be wrestling or mixed martial arts. We wish him all the best.  He’s a great talent, it’s foolish to say, ‘No, we wouldn’t want to retain him,’ but he has his own ambitions about what he thinks is good for him next in his career.”

Scott D’Amore added the following on Borash:

“We always wish Jeremy well. I got one of my first breaks [from him]—Jeremy hired me to be a producer at World Wrestling All-Stars. But we have editors on our team who don’t get the notoriety that Jeremy does. We have great players ready to step up.”

D’Amore added the following clarifying EC3’s Impact departure:

“His contract was not up. He came to us, we had a frank discussion about where he saw himself going.  We decided to sit down and work something out that worked for us on how we’d wrap up this portion of his career.  I didn’t  watch NXT TakeOver but when he showed up on screen and my phone started blowing up, I texted him: ‘Congratulations. All the best to you. You’ve got nothing but love and support from us here. And if you need anything, you know where we are.’ And he wrote back the same thing.”
