WWE Hall Of Famer Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts has been working in AEW for quite a while now. Since his debut, he has had a great time in the company. He started out by managing Lance Archer and the partnership has proved to be huge success.

He has worked in WWE for a long time and is well aware of how Vince McMahon functions. In fact, he even blasted Vince McMahon previously for humiliating people in WWE.

While speaking on the DDP Snake Pit podcast, Jake Roberts talked about the difference between Vince McMahon and Tony Khan. Roberts also admitted that he originally thought Tony Khan was a jabroni.

“I met him at the first TV I went to. Just a sweetheart, man. I thought he was just some, some jabroni that carried papers around. I didn’t know who the hell he was because he doesn’t come across as a Vince McMahon, you know, ‘stare you down’ type. He’s very personable, he’s very nice, he’s very nice to be around. Yeah, and I love the energy he has. It’s incredible, the energy. And his appreciation of what the talent is doing out there. It’s incredible. I’ve seen him leave his position and sprint to halfway across the building to tell someone, ‘What a great match’. You know, I’ve never seen Vince do that.


I appreciate everything that they do, everything including birthday cakes for guys on their birthdays too, to the way they handle everything, you know? The hotels that they put us in, the flights, to just all of it, man. It’s a class organization, you know? And I see what’s happened. He’s taken what he’s been doing for years with football people and the soccer people in England because he owns a club over there, and he’s given that same type of love, that’s what I call it, to wrestlers. And it’s absolutely wonderful.”

Jake Roberts continues to be by Lance Archer’s side and is more than happy working under Tony Khan right now and that is what truly matters in the end.
