He also announced for ‘B shows’ like Velocity and Heat before becoming the permanent ring announcer for the new ECW, before swapping with Tony Chimel to return to Smackdown.

Roberts big moment came at Wrestlemania 24 when he introduced the competitors for the World Heavyweight Championship match between Edge and The Undertaker

One of his most notable appearances as ring announcer for Raw came on during the debut of the Nexus. Whilst trashing the ring and beating up everyone around it, Daniel Bryan turned his attentions to Roberts who tore off his shirt and tie and strangled him with the latter. This got Bryan briefly fired from the company as it was deemed too extreme for PG TV product.

Roberts was released from his contract in October 2014 after allegedly failing to agree new terms on a new contract with WWE.
