- WWE.com has an article up on Justin Roberts celebrating his 10th year with WWE. You can read the article here. In the article, he shared some advice that Stephanie McMahon gave to his early on….
"When I started here, I had been listening to Howard Finkel. So when I previously announced at independent wrestling events, tough man contests, University of Arizona women's softball games, basically anything I could announce … I was utilizing a bit of The Fink's ‘cool announcer voice,'. I didn't even realize that I was doing it.
One day, Stephanie McMahon came up to me and said not to go out there and be Howard, but to be me. I didn't understand it at first, and then it hit me. I went back, watched some of my work, and thought, ‘That that isn't my voice, that's not how I sound.' Once she said that to me, the light went on and I just became me. So every introduction that I do has its own flavor. I don't go out and give the same introduction to everybody."
