During a recent interview with WrestlingInc, former WWE ring announcer Justin Roberts talked about what it was like when The Undertaker’s streak came to an end at WrestleMania 30, not receiving que for his announcement for that & more.
Below is what he said:
“I thought it was a mistake. I really did. My stomach dropped when the referee counted to three. I really thought it was a mistake and the bell was rung and I looked over at the person ringing the bell and thought, were you supposed to ring that bell? Normally I receive my cue after the bell to make my announcement but there was no cue.
I look over at him and my stomach is still on the floor and a minute later I was cued to make the announcement, and making it was so strange because it wasn’t going to be something that was going to be cheered or get booed, but everyone in the crowd including myself was wondering if it was supposed to happen, like they are not cheering or booing, it was just confusion, so when I got the cue to make the announcement I said, here’s your winner, the winner of this match, Brock Lesnar, it didn’t get a cheer or a boo, just a weird reaction, probably one of the weirdest announcements I ever called.”
Roberts also noted that he had no problem with Roman Reigns defeating The Undertaker at WrestleMania 33 this year:
“If that was his last match, yeah, for sure. You put somebody who is an up and coming guy over. Losing isn’t a thing anymore since the streak was broken.”
