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.
Roberts is considered a legend for his excellent in-ring psychology and character work that sent chills down the spines of fans. While speaking on the DDP Snake Pit, Jake Roberts talked about how not being able to play ‘office games’ contributed to his downfall.
Jake Roberts also believed that people were jealous of him in the company. In the end, Roberts simply did not have a good time in the company towards the end.
“I didn’t play the office game very well. I’m old school. I use about three things on this phone. That’s it. I’m not a tech guy and the reason being is I have an addictive personality.
If I was to get into that, I’d do nothing but look at that all day long. They’d find me in a room shriveled up and dead because I get hooked on something and I don’t give it up.
The other problem was jealousy. I didn’t know that you had play these games with the other people that are in there. I thought once you were in the office, you were okay. I found out if you took wrong seat in the limo, you’re going to piss somebody off. I hated it. I hated it. Such a waste of energy.
Vince used to ask me to come to the office to help him and I said ‘Vince, if you want something from me, call me. Tell me about it, and I’ll give it to you. But I’m not gonna spend my only three days off in these two months in Connecticut. I’ve got a wife I’d like to see and actually wants to see me.’ This was early, later on it was a little bit different because I heard that. I just, I couldn’t handle the games in the office, man. I don’t play well with others.”
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.
