Sam Roberts, a broadcaster executives at WWE are a fan of, considering how much work he’s thrown, made his debut as a commentator on Main Event this week. He was very excited about it!

Sitting at the @WWE commentary table as a guest next to @ByronSaxton and @reneeyoungwwe was surreal and amazing. Thank you. Let’s do it again soon!

During the course of the evening, he managed to piss off Dana Brooke, for making comments saying she’s not going to make it because she doesn’t have what it takes. Naturally, she took to social media to go after him:

Roberts’ schtick on WWE television has long been arguing with other analysts with ridiculous hot takes you are designed to disagree with. This, then, is the natural extension of that.
