Justin Roberts recently spoke to Chris Van Vliet of WSVN-TV for a new interview. You can see highlights below, and check out the full interview above!
Brandi Rhodes was the person who offered him his job in AEW:
"I did ALL IN in September and that was awesome. That was an amazing show, I had a great time and then I got a call and they said 'Hey are you available to do some other stuff if anything pops up?' I said 'Yep' and then I got a text from Brandi Rhodes and she asked me about doing it and I said absolutely, I would love to."
He says he wants to try some different announcements in AEW:
"I don't practice or rehearse anything but I have to be honest with you, as soon as I found out I was going to be doing this, ideas started coming into my head and I do have some ideas that are somewhat based on what I did at ALL IN. When I watch ALL IN I think about things I could have done better and you critique everything. That's how I've always tried to grow as an announcer. I do have some ideas that I'd like to try that maybe aren't so traditional and as long as the company is cool with me trying these different announcements. It's exciting to think about not just being standard and giving the same introduction to everybody, I don't want to do that. I want to make the announcement appeal to each wrestler that is coming out."
His expectations for AEW:
"I look at the company from a fan's perspective. I'm looking at this as my own hopes and assumptions because I don't know. I don't ask anything, I'm not told anything. I don't know what the plans are. I would hope that there are characters that I can get behind as a fan and storylines that I just get wrapped up in and I'm following from week to week. That's what I'm really looking forward to, sitting at ringside watching every event."
