Ring announcer Justin Roberts has officially pledged his future to All Elite Wresting by signing an exclusive deal with the company.
Roberts — whose 12-year tenure with WWE came to an end in 2014 — took to Instagram to announce that he’s now signed a ‘Khantract” with AEW.
“Breaking ‘news’: 5 years to the week when it ended and I thought my final announcement had been made, the Khantract has been signed and it’s officially time to begin, again,” Roberts captioned a video which featured images of himself with his former boss Vince McMahon, as well as more recent photos of him and his new boss Tony Khan.
Roberts then thanked Tony Khan, The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, Cody and Brandi Rhodes for reviving his career as a ring announcer.
