What's the story?

Depending on who you ask, Josh Mathews is the greatest commentator in the history of pro wrestling. You're really going to get that response if you ask Mathews himself because since coming to Impact Wrestling he has developed a heel persona and has been able to run with it. He recently made a little quip on Impact about how WWE announcers have been copying his style for years which is pretty funny considering the fact he learned the ropes under Vince McMahon and Company's banner.

In case you didn't know...

A proper pro wrestling broadcast really comes together if you have an announcer who is rooting for the bad guys. This tactic is amplified if the heel announcer is also incredibly full of himself like Josh Mathews.

The heart of the matter

During a recent episode of Impact Wrestling, Matthews was calling a match that featured Petey Williams, who feels his style has been lifted by other performers. After all, he is considered an innovator in many ways. He recently made his return to Impact Wrestling and intends on picking up where he left off.

Josh Mathews was able to throw a nice little dig out to his former employer while finding a way to wrap this comment around an on-going Impact Wrestling storyline when he said.

“I can sympathize with Petey. People have been copying my style for years… Yeah, a lot. Watch Monday or Tuesday nights.”

What's next?

Josh Mathews will continue with Impact Wrestling because he is doing well there. He has been able to carve a nice little niche out for himself and doesn't intend on giving up his spot just yet. Let's just hope for him that Impact Wrestling doesn't start hiring only Canadian announcers too like they did with their referees.

Author's take

If you're going to pick the good parts out of Impact Wrestling, Josh Mathews has to be one of the first aspects mentioned about the company. He's very clever and obviously having a great time in his heel persona. After all, everybody loves playing a bad guy when they can get away with it.
