Josh Mathews released from WWE


WWE has released longtime announcer Josh Mathews today according to several sources, a hardworking individual who has served as backstage interviewer, announcer, commentator, and presenter/host.

The 33 year old was hired by WWE in 2002 after he came runner-up to the winners of the first ever Tough Enough competition. While he only wrestled a couple of times since his hiring, Mathews was all over television hosting the WWE International TV shows, and provided commentary for different shows including Heat, Smackdown, ECW, RAW, and Superstars.

Recently Mathews has been doing a lot of work for the WWE Network in pre and post shows and did the RAW pre-show just two days ago.
