Justin Roberts always dreamed of being a ring announcer at World Wrestling Entertainment. From playing with action figures of the Ultimate Warrior, the Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels, Bret Hitman Hart and Hulk Hogan to actually announcing these larger-than-life characters to the ring, Roberts lived out the dream of countless, passionate wrestling fans worldwide.

Best Seat in the House is the inspirational story of Roberts ambitious journey to becoming a full-time ring announcer at WWE performing all over the world and announcing weekly live events, TV shows, and the enormously popular pay-per-view spectaculars for more than a decade.

In addition to announcing the top wrestlers in sports entertainment from Nature Boy Ric Flair, Rowdy Roddy Piper, Sgt. Slaughter, King Kong Bundy and the Iron Sheik to Dwayne the Rock Johnson, Stone Cold Steve Austin, John Cena, Brock Lesnar, CM Punk, Chris Jericho and the Undertaker, Roberts also relives entertaining and candid moments with his real-life superhero co-workers, workplace politics, grueling travel schedules, harsh requirements of WWE talent, and the overall merciless treatment from the higher-ups whose decisions can affect nearly the entire wrestling industry.

This book is the all-access backstage pass for those who have always wondered what it would be like to work at WWE under the infamous Vince McMahon and travel all over the world in cars, buses and planes with the biggest stars of professional wrestling.

Justin Roberts pulls no punches and gives you an uncensored, raw look at the journey of a young man chasing, catching and living his dream.

About the Author

Justin Roberts was born and raised in Chicago, IL and now resides in Scottsdale, AZ, since graduating from the University of Arizona. An avid wrestling fan, Justin wanted nothing more than to become a ring announcer for World Wrestling Entertainment. At age 16, he began announcing independent wrestling events and worked his way up the industry during both high school and college. Justin began as the backup announcer at WWE until he got his own spot announcing regularly for ECW, followed by Smackdown and eventually Monday Night Raw. He worked all over the world, traveling on the road with the wrestlers and announcing the weekly live events, TV shows and monthly pay-per-views. The combination of what he learned in school, with the experience of being on the road and working under Vince McMahon, taught him quite a bit about life. He proved that no goal is unattainable, if you set your mind to it and encourages everyone he meets to follow their dreams as anything and everything is possible.

Justin Roberts has spun a masterpiece in the genre of professional wrestling "tell-all" books. If you are a fan of the industry, you MUST read this book! Justin pulls no punches in telling the world about the inner workings of "sports entertainment", and he does so with an honest and forthright wit that makes you feel every up and every down. Justin was and is a fan - first and foremost. That alone makes this book different. The true stories behind how stars are made, how employees are dealt with, and the culture of WWE will leave you begging for more. I could not put this book down once I started, and if you are a fan, you won't be able to either.

A great look behind the curtain to what life is like working for the WWE. Justin followed his dream and through persistence and hard work he earned his opportunity only to see it used against him through the years. This book will appear to both the die hard and casual fan alike. It provides great insight into the WWE life from the road, to the ring and all places in between. Once you pick up this book, you won't be able to put it down!
