Backstage News On Why WWE Released Josh Mathews, WWE Stars Talk MITB On WWE Inbox

– The release of announcer Josh Mathews came as a big shock to most people within WWE. Mathews release was part of the going budget cuts. WWE had been making cuts in each department and Mathews was apparently at the bottom of the announcers list.

  • Kevin Ngo

    At the bottom? Are you kidding me?

  • Mark Bassett (MarkyB)

    But, JBL, Jerry Lawler….

  • Mattdnu

    But keep Alex Riley on commentary. It’s not like he’s annoying or anything.

  • Melissa

    I would have thought that was Alex Riley. They could release Miz as well.

  • Monkey D. Luffy

    why is Lawler not fired? He fucking sucks

  • Roberto C Jimenez

    All of the sudden people missing him lol

  • thatpj

    the good part about josh mathews being released is moar renee young!

  • jmull

    Matthews sounds like a gay, retarded middle schooler. . . why is everybody high on him?

    • none

      pretty sure only kids in middle school refer to people they dislike as “gay” or “retarded”.

  • Mark Charlie-Sheen Coburn

    He’s been lost in the shuffle. This does not mean that WWE didn’t rate him, it just means they had already filled the slots for that position. At 33 Matthews could still have a decent wrestling career ahead of him in the ring. His prospects may well improve by this release
