    Default Matt Striker Reveals How He Got Started As A WWE Announcer

    Follow us on Social Media

    Matt Striker discussed how he became a WWE commentator during a recent interview with Gerry Strauss of The Layfield Report.

    One night, Bruce Pritchard told me that Id be needed the next day in Atlanta. This was strange because Bruce never really talked to me. I was a new guy and Bruce had been contributing to the business for years. Id always known who he was and liked his work so it was kind of cool to me. I went to Atlanta and was told that Id be tried out as a commentator.

    Id been doing this for years since I was seven. I had my own imaginary federation that my G.I. Joe and AWA wrestling figures competed within. I did commentary into a tape recorder- my mother still has the tapes. So thats what I did. Turns out it was Joey Styles idea and Joey had the foresight, courage and belief to bring it up in a meeting once a need opened up on ECW. Now, in all honesty, it was probably agreed upon just to move on to the next, bigger problem that needed attention, but either way I was in.
