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.

If Tommy Dreamer wanted an upgrade for announcer, then he might take a look at Justin Roberts. He still has passion for professional wrestling. Roberts only left WWE because he had grown disenchanted with some of the things that the front office was doing behind the scenes. Otherwise, he would have remained in the industry. House of Hardcore could benefit by bringing in another familiar voice and face for television.
