AEW surprised a lot of people when they brought Jake “The Snake” Roberts into the company. He was paired up with Lance Archer and the pair have made some great moments already. Roberts is not done yet.
The WWE Hall of Famer revealed during an interview with DDP on YouTube that things are going great for him in AEW. In fact, he signed a new contract extension that will see him with the company for even longer.
“Thanks to Tony Khan, when I originally signed with them, it was for a ten-week deal. In eight weeks, the guy comes along with some papers and is like ‘You need to sign these.’ ‘What for?’ ‘It’s your contract.’ ‘Dude, I only have two weeks left.’ ‘No, you have another year.’ A few weeks ago, I buzz Tony and say, ‘I have four weeks left, what do you want me to do?’ Next thing you know, he starts setting up my stuff and says, ‘You need to sign another piece of paper.’ I sign it again and after I signed it, I found it that is wasn’t for a year, it was for two years. He’s such a wonderful man. He gave me my love for wrestling back. It’s great to be part of it.”
Jake Roberts and Lance Archer are still going strong as the two try to form a new plan of action after The Murderhawk Monster failed to capture the TNT Title at Double or Nothing. We’ll have to see what’s to come, but Jake Roberts has plenty of time to figure things out.
