While it is still pretty early on, it appears that the return on investment for Josh Mathews has been a rather good one for TNA. He is doing a tremendous job of being a one man commentating team after the departure of Taz. The company might have been in a bind had it just been Mike Tenay out there by himself. While he is one of the most knowledgeable guys to ever do the job, Tenay is a guy that works much better when there is a color commentator.

To clear the air, Taz revealed some details about his departure from TNA. He stated that his contract was up later on this summer, and he already had plans of moving on to do something else. The former world heavyweight champion stated that his decision to ask for a release was purely related to business. It was not personal, and he refuses to bash the company. The New York native also mentioned that he has no issues with Josh Mathews, whom he praises.
