A source close to the situation has an update on Justin Roberts, saying the recently departed WWE ring announcer was willing to keep working with the company in hopes of working out a new deal. 

Roberts said he was willing to continue working with a salary based on his old deal until they could reach a new agreement on a contract, but WWE did not want to do that and decided to part ways. 

Funk/Mascaras In Japan 

It was previously reported that WWE Hall of Famers Terry Funk and Mil Mascaras were scheduled to work a match against each other in Japan this December.

Dave Meltzer had asked Funk about this on his “belated birthday celebration” on Hart Beat Radio, part of Pro Wrestling Powerhouse Radio, but plans have now changed. The main event of the December 11th show will feature a six-man tag match, pitting Funk, Mascaras and Masakatsu Funaki against Yoshihiro Takayama, Kaz Hayashi and Nosawa.
