Sam Roberts provides color commentary on this week’s edition of WWE Main Event on Hulu.
Roberts, who called the matches alongside Renee Young and Byron Saxton, opens up about the experience on his wrestling podcast this week.
“To be sitting at that commentary booth, at that broadcast booth, next to Byron Saxton and Renee Young, and doing commentary for WWE, is about as nuts as it gets,” says Roberts.
“The Last Professional Broadcaster” has been appearing as a panelist on WWE pay-per-view pre-shows for some time, but the move to the commentary table is new to him.
In preparation for his opportunity, Roberts says he spent some time studying at the WWE Performance Center.
“I was in Orlando for an afternoon, just kind of learning a couple tricks of the trade,” Roberts says.
Roberts drew the ire of some fans for his comments about Bianca Belair on an NXT pre-show earlier this year.
Whether or not Roberts will be a regular on Main Event going forward is uncertain.
For now, Roberts says, this was simply a one-week experiment.
“WWE invited me to be a guest for one episode,” he says. “I was there simply to give my opinion.”
“I had a blast doing it, and I would love to do more.”
