Josh Mathews has apparently been released from WWE. While we do not have 100% confirmation, his profile has been moved to the Alumni section and there is a plan for Renee Young to replace him on upcoming broadcast assignments.

4:23 PM EDT Update on June 25, 2014: Mathews has indeed been released, we can now confirm.  End update.

Mathews has been with WWE since 2002.

    Tthe moment he disappeared off commentating, as well as a backstage interviewer, it was just matter of time. Perhaps this opens up doors for him to actually wrestle.

    It seems as if though WWE Officials are very high on Renee Young and Byron Saxton as of late.

    • Brandon van Reenen

      Byron Saxton is great on commentary, but wooden in backstage interviews.

  • BIG M

    12 years is a pretty good run for a backstage interviewer/commentator in WWE.
    Most others only last 3 or 4 years at best.

  • Venom

    Personally I think this was a dumber decision then releasing Drew McIntyre.

  • H.M.

    To be quite frank, he added little as a commentator or backstage interviewer. Not to say I don’t feel for the guy.

  • Splat

    I think this had more to do with how high up on Renee Young the WWE is then it is anything Josh did.

      Renee won’t be with WWE much longer. She will definitely be heading to one of the major networks soon.
