According to Justin Roberts, WWE does not like it when their employees and independent contractors take time off from work. The longtime announcer said that he only took three vacations during the dozen years that he worked for the company. Management frowns upon those that cause them to have to make changes for television. Roberts said that you sometimes were ribbed when you came back to work.

We now have a better idea of why Justin Roberts is no longer with WWE. He stated that when the company informed him that they were not renewing his contract, he was just as elated as he was the day he achieved his dream of joining the company. Roberts had grown disenchanted with the company because he felt that they were not genuine in their quest to help sick children. He cited Connor the Chrusher as a prime example.
