Matt Striker WWE interview

2 Jan, 2014

Striker gives his thoughts about making the transition from a wrestler to an announcer:

It was circumstances, I believe it was Taz or Mick Foley that was leaving and WWE needed a commentator and it was probably number 12 on the list of things they had to handle that day, and it was Joey Styles that mentioned that I would be interested and thought I would be a good fit. The one thing about WWE is that they are all about opportunity, and they said let’s give the kid an opportunity, I put on the headsets in Atlanta and it just seemed to be a natural fit. I still brought my wrestling boots with me every single week, that is what I was taught and I still have them in my bag right now and I’m sure I’ll get some more use out of them now.
