Dave Meltzer shed some light on Josh Mathews meltdown yesterday on twitter. For those that did not see the twitter excchange with Ross, click here. Apparently Josh was under the impression that Jim Ross was coming to take his job. This is based on the podcast that Jim Ross did with Dixie Carter. Josh interpreted it as Jim Ross looking to take Mathews job in TNA.
For those that didn’t listen to the podcast, Ross did give some advice to Dixie but Ross never gave any indication (at least publicly) that he wanted a job in TNA.
I guess that would explain the “If you are over 60, just go away” comment he made. Mathews did apologize later for his comments. You can check out the podcast by clicking on the player below.
