Josh Mathews comments on Jeremy Borash’s IMPACT Wrestling departure:
My immediate reaction was that I was happy for him. I don’t remember who called me in the morning to tell me that we had to do a change in our VO schedule and that Sonjay was coming in. I was happy for JB. I’ve talked to JB a few times since then. And I’m happy for him.
But I’m also happy for Impact because JB leaving opened up an opportunity for Sonjay Dutt to come along and show everyone his skills as a colour commentator. And I think he’s done an outstanding job thus far. And it’s only really been just the beginning. Wrestling commentary is hard because you have to be dialled into every storyline that’s happening on Impact.
Not only the storylines that are happening but all the shows in California, shows in Canada, WrestleCon, Twitch, GWN. Sonjay has a good idea of what’s happening. That translates each and every week on Impact.
Commentary: Jeremy Borash was heavily involved in all aspects of IMPACT Wrestling. His departure really does open up the opportunity for others to step up and take on more responsibility. Sonjay Dutt is actually doing a really good job.
