New match for Impact tonight, Josh Mathews to temporarily replace Matt Striker
Josh Mathews is set to return to commentary for tonight’s Impact Wrestling episode.
Mathews left the Impact announce team back in January as he was promoted to the role of Senior Producer. Matt Striker and D’Lo Brown then took over, but now PWInsider reports that Striker will be missing several episodes going forward. Mathews and D’Lo will call the action until Striker can return.
It was noted that Striker is still with the company but has to take some time off to handle outside commitments. There is no word yet on when he will be back.
On a related note, Impact is now advertising a tag team match for tonight’s show with Sami Callihan and Moose vs. The Good Brothers. It was previously announced that Callihan will open the show.
