    It was a well-known fact that in the early years of the Freebirds Roberts was the best worker and a key reason for their success. Having been a member of the Hollywood Blondes before his Freebird stint, Roberts was the experienced member when he joined the FF. A great heel in the business. He will be missed

    Helms nailed it. Roberts was hugely underrated. One of the best heels to work in the 80s.
