Impact Wrestling posted a new video titled, “My First Day”, which focused on color commentator Josh Mathews. At one point in the video, Mathews claimed that he was the “best play-by-play announcer” in the world.
“I make no bones about it, that I think I’m the best play-by-play announcer in the world, there’s nobody that can touch what I do out there.”
Since then, Mathews wrote the following remarks on Twitter regarding the backlash he’s receiving from the internet wrestling community:

These remarks from Mathews prompted a back-and-forth on Twitter Mathews and Jeremy Borash, which has since then been deleted.
Borash: “No one will ever question your credibility after the ‘I believe I am the greatest play by play announcer in the world,’ quote. Good for you.”
Mathews: “Go fly your drone.”
Borash: “I will. The difference between you and that drone? One is a super over personality on a wrestling show… and the other is an announcer.”
Mathews: “Don’t worry @JeremyBorash after WWE, ROH, Lucha, NJPW, NOAH & any other company fires like 10 announcers, you’ll get your chance!”
Borash retweeted a fan who said, “@JeremyBorash he’s not even the best play by play person in his own family @MRayneTNA” to which Borash replied, “Your words… not mine.”
Mathews: “Yeah, a Ring Announcer. Anyone can do that. Have you seen the people that used to work here?!?”
