Justin Roberts was indeed informed of his WWE departure after Monday night’s RAW in Atlanta. He was informed by his superior Kevin Dunn. There’s a feeling now that Lilian Garcia will start doing RAW while Eden will do ring announcing for SmackDown. Byron Saxton’s name was also mentioned as he may be doing some ring announcing coming up.
Speaking of Roberts, there was talk among fans at RAW on social media last night that Roberts was seen yelling at Michael Cole during the Dolph Ziggler vs. Randy Orton match. A fan noted that Roberts also flipped Cole off. As noted, WWE chose not to renew Roberts’ contract, that’s why he was let go.
Justin Roberts is scheduled to be a guest on Chris Jericho’s podcast this Friday and you can expect them to discuss what led to his WWE departure.
