Mathews originally was a part of the Tough Enough cast and despite not winning the show, has remained a member of the company virtually ever since.
He's been a backstage interviewer, commentator, and most recently had etched out a position as the head moderator for the pay-per-view panels.
Personally, I'm disappointed about this release quite a bit. Both he and Matt Striker I felt were valuable assets and I was really hoping that Mathews would eventually take Michael Cole's spot as the play-by-play man in WWE.
Here's hoping that Mathews can either move on to something better or find his way back to the company. I'm rooting for you, man!
