Ring Announcer Justin Roberts Moves On

WWE ring announcer Justin Roberts has effectively been released from WWE after his contract was not renewed. WWE.com issued the following statement after RAW:

WWE has chosen to not exercise its option to renew ring announcer Justin Roberts’ contract. Effective immediately, Roberts is released from WWE.

WWE wishes him the best in all his future endeavors.

Whether the departure was mutual, a cost cutting measure similar to Josh Mathews, or there’s some other undisclosed reason is unclear, but Roberts was a talented and well respected member of the crew and all things considered it’s quite a surprising move.

The 34 year old has been with WWE since 2002 and worked his way up the ranks to be the main RAW announcer.
