Although they are playing up that Josh Mathews is leaving Impact Wrestling, we have not seen the end of him. On Sunday morning’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said that Mathews is scheduled to be on Thursday’s “live” (taped on the same night but airing on tape delay) episode of Impact Wrestling.
Mathews claimed that he would leave Impact Wrestling forever if his team (Lashley, Bram, Eli Drake & Tyrus) were not able to defeat Jeremy Borash’s team (Magnus, Alberto El Patron, Matt Morgan & Chris Adonis).
Nothing was ever signed and the stipulation was only something that Mathews spouted out verbally so that could be the explanation on why he will stay in the broadcast booth. There are bigger plans for Mathews at Slammiversary so that might be when he is written off TV for good.
Here is a clip from the end of Impact followed by a backstage clip of Mathews leaving the Impact Zone:
