Jeremy Borash shoots on Josh Mathews

It looks like Jeremy Borash was not a fan of Josh Mathews’ recent comments on a YouTube video where Mathews referred to himself as the best announcer in the wrestling business. The video (scroll down to watch) features an interview with Mathews where he talks about leaving WWE and joining Impact Wrestling. I should note that Mathews’ job title, according to his twitter bio, is Senior Director, Digital Media Affairs so the video may have been posted by Mathews himself.

“I make no bones about it that I’m the best play-by-play announcer in the world. There’s nobody that can touch what I do out there,” said Mathews in the YouTube video. He also talked about how his storytelling helps get guys like EC3, The Hardys, and Cody Rhodes to the next level. Those comments did not sit well with many fans on social media and Josh’s reaction on Twitter prompted a response from Borash. The announcing on Impact Wrestling has been widely criticized by fans since Mathews took over for Mike Tenay. Mathews’ reputation has taken a hit in recent years for his announcing style and comments on social media directed at people like Jim Ross and TJ Perkins. This back-and-forth with Borash is certainly not doing him any favors.

Most of the tweets have been deleted but you can read the exchange below:

The twitter exchange started after Mathews said, “Seems like “My First Day” caused quite the reaction! Obviously, we are all entitled to our opinions & that makes what we do so great!”

Borash responded: “No one will ever question your credibility after the “I believe I am the greatest play by play announcer in the world,” quote. Good for you.”

Mathews: “Go fly your drone.”

Borash: “I will. The difference between you and that drone? One is a super over personality on a wrestling show… and the other is an announcer.”

Mathews: “Don’t worry @JeremyBorash after WWE, ROH, Lucha, NJPW, NOAH & any other company fires like 10 announcers, you’ll get your chance! ?”

Mathews said this after someone pointed out that Borash has worked with TNA since day 1: “Yeah, a Ring Announcer. Anyone can do that. Have you seen the people that used to work here?!?”
