A feud is brewing on WWE Main Event.
On this past week's episode of the show, Sam Roberts made his commentary debut alongside Byron Saxton and Renee Young. During a match between Dana Brooke and Tamina, Roberts went full heel in his burial of Brooke. Here are some highlights from Roberts on commentary:
"I wouldn't be in a wonderful mood if I found out I was returning to singles action and it was in a match against Dana Brooke of all people."
"You can show up every week, it takes a matter of skill."
"Support doesn't win matches."
"No big shocker here that the somersaults that Dana Brooke is doing aren't exactly paying off. I'm sure she's great on a balance beam."
"When has Dana Brooke ever seized the moment?"

Brooke followed that up by calling Roberts "a mark" in a reply to a Twitter user.
This isn't the first time Roberts has buried talent as fans may recall his scathing comments aimed at Bianca Belair prior to NXT TakeOver: Phoenix. In his non-apology to Belair, Roberts said that he is not fed lines and is allowed to speak what is on his mind while in the booth.
