- It looks like his comments over the relief effort in Haiti have gotten new TNA personality Bubba the Love Sponge sent home from a production meeting and possibly fired from the company. Bubba wrote the following on his Twitter today:

“Eric needs to chill out on this power trip. Hogan is cool. Eric is running wild. here in orlando things r all messed up. Was suppose to be at the prod meeting @11 they called and said not 2 come??? This is starting 2b not fun. All because of my Haiti comments Sorry people can’t handle the truth. And what does my Haiti comments have to do with tna wrestling. I didn’t say them on dixies air. I don’t think tna is ready 4someone like me. I shoot hard from the hip and ms Carter (although i have a ton of respect 4her) has never had a guy that is as outrageous as I am and has a Nationwide delevery method. So right now I would describe our relationship like oil and water. And it’s not good. im headed home. My agent Is coming to Orlando to deal with mess. not that I’ll ever b on tna again but tell me any tna personality that has more followers.”

Bubba also noted that he was supposed to be a part of the deal with The Band at last night’s Genesis pay-per-view but someone vetoed Hulk Hogan so Bubba wasn’t involved.

He also said last night that Jeremy Borash is gone from TNA and he (Bubba) did not want the job of being Borash’s replacement.

    Anyone else see that the stuff with JB is part of the story with Eric Bischoff?

  • Jay B

    As long Borash is still doing his web host duties, I think it’s a fine move. His recent role on TV as the doofus guy who plays up to Foley was bothersome.

  • rko

    Nobody ever said the truth didn’t hurt. Bubba said it right on the money.

  • Danarchy

    Sucks Borash Is Gone

  • Treg

    I more upset that Borash is apparently gone :( I mean, he’s like the voice of TNA.. since the beginning.

  • Brasco

    What da hell is he thinkin that he is? Borash MUST stay in TNA, Bubba or what the name of that fat monkey is can leave TNA, he is stupid

  • jimmy dean

    AND! he had people who worked for him harass fans??? fuck that, why do I want to watch a guy who has fans harassed! He voices his own oppinion, which he would be dumb to realize that saying what he did would be unpopular among fans. THEN, other people disagree with him, and say how fucked up his oppinion is, and what does he do? HE HAS HIS PEOPLE HARASS THEM FOR VOICING THEIR OPPINION!!! This guy talks about America??? How American is attacking somebody for voicing their oppinion???

  • jimmy dean

    why would TNA want this guy. thats great that you voice your oppinion, but to do it at a time when many people should worry because their family or people they know could have been affected( or worse) proves how stupid you are bubba( not that he cares about my oppinion). This guy has nothing to do with wrestling except that hes a fan and has friends. Get rid of him, he’ll just cause problems.

  • Rob

    TNA should have an angle where Bubba gets knocked the f—k out.

  • Keith Learmonth

    “tell me any tna personality that has more followers”

    All of them. TNA is broadcast internationally. Bubba’s show, from what i know, is only heard in one area of the USA. Maybe the whole country, via rebroadcasting.

  • Joe

    Bubba is an idiot who talks in a fake radio voice. If you want to listen to a real radio show, turn on Opie and Anthony, who are consistently funnier than Stern ever was.

  • scooter

    look the issue is its negative pr and a member of his team insulted the tna fans disgraceful I hope he’s caught in an earthquake then again the fat bastard stomps and theres one

  • doozer

    he is a darn good radio personality. second to none except howard stern. i love him in a non fa.ggot type of way. problem is he shoots from the hip a little to hard, and in a business when it is all about a worked shoot, straight shooting isn’t always the best thing to be doing. i might ad that he has an extremely not wife, and his buddy ned could kick Eric’s A**!

  • Nick

    If you have to say you’re outrageous, then you’re obviously not. Wow, this guy tries to hard to be cool. As soon as I figure out who he is, I might care.

  • Me

    Looks like Bubba’s ego is too big for himself to handle….

    And btw it’s bullshit if they actually do get rid of JB…. Borash has been a part of TNA since it’s inception and now he gets kicked to the curb? Wow….
