A WWE announcer has spoken up about his dream of being able to call a WrestleMania main event some day in the future.
Vic Joseph is a veteran WWE announcer that has worked for WWE since 2017. He has been an announcer on several different including WWE Monday Night Raw, Main Event, NXT UK and others.
Since August 2020, Vic Joseph has been locked in as the main play-by-play announcer on NXT. He has had broadcast partners including Wade Barrett and Beth Phoenix. Since last fall, he has been paired with Booker T.
During an interview on Insight With Chris Van Vliet, Vic Joseph spoke about how his ultimate goal in WWE is to call a WrestleMania main event match.
“It wasn’t any other company. It wasn’t just to do it. It wasn’t, ‘Oh, I want to call this guy’s match. I want to be in this environment. It was, ‘This is the company I want to go to. This is the company I grew up watching.’ If it wasn’t for this person and this person, am I the person I am today? My goal in life is to call the main event at WrestleMania.”
“I’m throwing it out there because we talk about talent that’s in the ring. There’s only one main event each night of WrestleMania. There’s only so many main events that have happened at WrestleMania. There’s been countless matches, there’s only been one main event or two main events. I want to call a WrestleMania main event.”
Currently, WWE’s commentary team for Premium Live Events is Michael Cole and Corey Graves. Cole has been in WWE for over 25 years and may choose to walk away in a few years, which could open up a spot for the 37-year-old Joseph.
“I’ve called matches at WrestleMania, I’ve called championship matches at WrestleMania, but I’ve never called the main event and that to me is still what drives me to let me be different than what you’re hearing. Let me continue to work twice as hard.”
“Give me Beth Phoenix or Wade Barrett and then Booker T or Nigel McGuinness or whoever it is, I’m going to make it work with their help, because everyone I’ve ever worked with has actually elevated me, which has been a beautiful thing in itself, but I want to call the main event of WrestleMania.”
“That is what drives me every Tuesday, or when I was doing Raw, or doing Mix Match Challenge, or 205 Live, or Level Up or now even with NXT, it’s to get to that specific moment.”
