Justin Roberts spoke out about his WWE release for the first time in a humble and appreciative statement on his Instagram account on Wednesday. The statement did not give specifics about why he was terminated after this week's episode of Monday Night Raw.
There is new evidence to suggest Roberts' release was a surprise to him as well. On September 10, 2014, Roberts posted his updated WWE announce schedule on his verified Facebook fan page. It was there where it was seen he was booked for WWE shows through November 24, 2014.

October 15, 2014 2:47 PM EDT Update: One note I wanted to add to this report is that it should be noted that Justin Roberts was scheduled to be off from this week's episode of WWE Raw until WWE Hell in a Cell on October 26, 2014. End update.
We've already noted that Roberts' release did not following company protocol and are still investigating claims of an alleged incident on Monday with Michael Cole. However, the above seems to indicate that Roberts had planned on being with the company through next month at the very least.
