While speaking to Fightful, Josh Mathews claims that he was offered the play-by-play announcing job for Lucha Underground and explained why he couldn’t take the gig.

“Yeah it was [a seven-season type of deal] and I was in L.A. doing Undercover Boss, a lot of people don’t know I did work on that show for a couple of seasons,” Matthews said. “We were shooting an episode of Undercover Boss in L.A. and Lucha Underground called me and said, ‘Our play-by-play announcer can’t get into the states. He’s in Mexico and can’t get into the shows tomorrow. Could you please do it?’ I couldn’t do it. It didn’t work out. They flew Matt Striker from the East Coast, but it came very close. I was in the same zip code as they were in.”
