As noted, WWE recently signed veteran Impact Wrestling employee Jeremy Borash to a deal and he is expected to work with NXT at the WWE Performance Center.
“I saw somewhere online that it was reported that we re-voiced stuff that ‘JB’ and I had already done, which wasn’t true,” Mathews said. “Our next video session, when we found out that Jeremy was leaving the company was like three or four days later and we had time to come up with a different game plan, and come up with what the right decision was going to be. There was a lot of different opinions, a lot of different thoughts, and I think the final decision was the best one they could have made. Sonjay [Dutt] came here and did great. And now we have that situation in place.”
Being with the company for so long, Mathews was asked about how important Borash was to Impact and what his exit meant.
“I mean, important, sure. I think that– everything is moving at the speed at which it was moving before Jeremy said he was leaving, I guess is the best way I could put that,” Mathews responded. “There’s no hitch, there was no glitch, everything’s just smoothly running as it were if he were still here or not here.”
With commentary duties obviously changing up, Mathews also commented on if anything changed in terms of roles for him, and for the most part, nothing changed.
“No, it didn’t. The stuff that I do stays the same, stayed the same, doesn’t change,” Mathews replied. “I wish him nothing but luck and success down there, it’s a different beast. But as far as what I do, nothing was affected other than switching back from color commentary to play-by-play announcing, which is what I have been doing for fourteen years.”
