Justin Roberts recently spoke with John Corrigan of Wrestledelphia.com about his new book, Best Seat in the House: Your Backstage Pass through My WWE Journey. During the interview he was asked about portraying JBL, Triple H, and Kevin Dunn negatively in his book and if he heard from them after it was released. He said that he didn’t give his opinion on them in the book but rather told the story of his experiences and how they came into his story and their involvement in it. He said that by telling the story, you as a reader could say that guy seems like a great guy, or that guy doesn’t seem like a great guy. He noted that he told his story and the role everybody played and how he was treated by everybody. “I didn’t make anything up – that’s the best part of the book. It’s completely honest. Maybe if they had treated me better, I would have portrayed that in the story. With all the names I mentioned in the story, you just named three coming off sounding negative. If that’s the case, everybody came off in a positive light because everybody else was cool.”
When asked why he doesn’t feel like he fits into other wrestling companies such as Impact Wrestling and Ring of Honor. He said that he doesn’t know and that he got too good of an education while in WWE. He said that he is not sure if he would like to go somewhere as a ring announcer or as a producer. He brought up being a producer for Championship Wrestling from Arizona for a monthly taping. ”I go there and produce the guys on their promos and help them with their matches. I love producing. I’ve learned a lot from Vince, Arn Anderson, Dean Malenko, Fit Finlay. You learn so much from watching complete show after show after show for over a decade. When you see other wrestling companies doing things a different way, it’s great they’re doing something different, but if it’s not the way I’m into, I don’t know if I’d able to be a part of that. As far as announcing, I don’t know. I had a great run ring announcing.” He noted that he doesn’t know if he is still looking to ring announce and that he feels there is not a company where he would be a good fit at out there right now. He said that until that happens, he is going to sit on the sidelines and hope these companies do really well.
