AEW ring announcer Justin Roberts was the last guest on the Talk Is Jericho Podcast to discuss a number of pro-wrestling-related topics, including his response to the announcement that Brock Lesnar had ended The Undertaker’s undefeated run at WrestleMania, a moment Roberts admits he’ll never forget. Watch his full response in the highlights below.

Remembers the announcement that Brock Lesnar had defeated the Undertaker at WrestleMania 30, the match that ended Deadman’s streak:

About his reaction to that and how uncomfortable he felt:

“My stomach dropped. I just had my doubts, and so it was very awkward, and then a minute later I get a signal and I say, ‘The winner of this match, Brock Lesnar.’ And it was an uncomfortable announcement. Everyone, including myself – it was just disbelief.”
