Former WWE Announcer Speaks Out After WWE Has His Demo Reel Removed

Mar 8, 2015 - by Marc Middleton

– As noted, former WWE ring announcer Justin Roberts appeared at House of Hardcore on Saturday night and spoke out against his time with WWE, saying he lost his passion while there due to the politics. Roberts was upset this past week due to WWE having his demo reel removed from YouTube. It was removed due to the video featuring footage that was copyrighted by WWE but the company reportedly gave him permission to use it. The reel has since been restored and you can see it above. Roberts wrote the following on Instagram:

“At the end of my 12 year relationship, there were a lot of things about work that made it hard to want to get on those planes. But on the night that we didn’t renew my contract – I left the building and they told me the door was always open. I chose to walk the opposite direction and move on. I left out the negativity in my heart and wrote a positive goodbye and was on my way into the next chapter.”

“The company sent me footage and I put together a reel featuring much of that footage since that’s where I was, almost daily for over a decade. My reel was out there and maybe I’d go where the wind blew, but today they pulled that reel off of YouTube. Despite countless hours of their copyrighted YouTube footage uploaded by others, my 5 min reel of my work is pulled. Maybe their legal department isn’t busy enough?”
