He became the new play-by-play analyst for WWE Superstars in October 2010, replacing Michael Cole. He called his first episode with Jerry Lawler for the October 7 episode of Superstars.

Josh Mathews joined Stanford as the color commentator, beginning on the December 31 episode of Superstars.

Stanford revealed on the show that he was the man who attacked Ryder’s best friend, Chiappetta, becoming a heel in the process. This was later proved incorrect as it was the same look-alike of Stanford, Rot, who conducted the ambush. As well as the host of This Week in WWE, Stanford was the host of the Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live pre-shows on the WWE Network until November 2016.
