Some fans may have noticed that Peter Rosenberg has been absent from WWE TV for the past several months. Rosenberg took to his “Cheap Heat” radio program and explained the situation. The New York radio host explained he has been dealing with some personal issues over the past year, resulting in him no longer traveling with the company.
However, Rosenberg returned in April ready to work WrestleMania 35. As it turns out, there was no place for him on the program:
When I came back to WWE and I was ready to work WrestleMania, those who make the decisions on those things — Michael Cole — were no longer interested in using me for that.
So WrestleMania came to New York City where I’ve been promoting it for four/five months prior, even when I was no longer traveling, and they said, ‘We don’t have a place for you on WrestleMania.’ They couldn’t even squeeze me on that fakakta Watch Along show that has eighty people talking at the same time. Still didn’t have room for me there. Didn’t put me anywhere. Ok.
Now, Rosenberg claims he is done working WWE pre-show panels but is still open to doing more work on the WWE Network in the future:
As much as it sounds like I’m even mad at Cole, not even mad at Cole. Cole and I were never super tight. He’s got the way he sees things. If I don’t fit into that, I don’t care. There’s a lot of things that I don’t … as you can hear, I think the Watch Along show is literally the worst … an embarrassment to the Network.
That’s not a veiled shot at Pat McAfee. I don’t think anyone can do that show and make it good. You can’t have ten people talking at the same time. It’s not good.
