There always seems to be another big controversy coming round the corner in WWE, and although this one won’t have the impact of the bust-up between Brock Lesnar and Vince McMahon, the top brass in WWE will still be angry about the latest goings on with former wrestling announcer Justin Roberts, who slammed WWE over the weekend after a bizarre sequence of events.
The ex-ring announcer Justin Roberts is very upset that WWE removed a demo reel of his from YouTube over the weekend. The reason given for the decision to remove the video was because the demo featured copyrighted WWE footage. However, it turns out that WWE had given Roberts the right to use the footage, which subsequently left Roberts fuming.
Frustrated with WWE
"At the end of my 12 year relationship, there were a lot of things about work that made it hard to want to get on those planes. But on the night that we didn't renew my contract - I left the building and they told me the door was always open," Roberts wrote on Instagram, NoDQ reported.
"The company sent me footage and I put together a reel featuring much of that footage since that's where I was, almost daily for over a decade. My reel was out there and maybe I'd go where the wind blew, but today they pulled that reel off of YouTube. Despite countless hours of their copyrighted YouTube footage uploaded by others, my 5 min reel of my work is pulled. Maybe their legal department isn't busy enough?"
Safe to say that the video is now back up on YouTube and Roberts is happy again.
