Josh Mathews stands by that dumb thing he said a while ago

Josh Mathews

Remember when Impact Wrestling announcer Josh Mathews stated his belief that he’s “the best play-by-play announcer in the world” a couple months ago? In a recent interview with The Buzzards Wrestling Podcast he stood by those comments:

"100% and if you go back and watch that interview, I also talked about wanting video games and action figures and stuffed animals and worldwide tours and bigger venues and live events but people stuck to that one thing and I don't know why. If you're in any profession, if you don't think you're the best, then you should do something else for a living. ...I should feel I'm the best play-by-play announcer in the world and quite frankly, it's true, because if you watch these shows, nobody can do what I do at the level that I do it in 2017."

It’s worth noting Mathews has become more than a play-by-play announcer, he’s an actual character trying to get over on television who should be saying outlandish nonsense like this. When taken that way, it makes sense.

Because watching those shows, it’s very clear literally everyone else in a similar position elsewhere can do what he does at the level that he does it in 2017.
