WWE Hall Of Famer Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts has been part of the AEW since 2020. Roberts started out in AEW by managing Lance Archer and the partnership has proved to be somewhat of a success. He also recalled being subjected to nasty games backstage in WWE.
He has worked in WWE for a long time and knows 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 recalled wrestlers playing nasty games with him backstage in WWE and how it affected him.
“I wasn’t struggling in the beginning, but I didn’t want to work. I just wanted to write. But as Vince does, he gets what he wants, and this guy would get hurt and this guy would miss a show and I would have to go replace him. That was okay. But then he said ‘we need you to on this European trip. We need you back on the road.’
And games were being played at the office with the writers. There was a lot of jealousy involved. Some didn’t want me there, some did. And it wasn’t long before I was out of that. That’s a shame because I enjoyed writing. But when I went back on the road full time, I knew I was in trouble.”
Jake Roberts also gave an update on his health before his third hip surgery. Roberts has gone through a lot in his life and we are glad to see he has truly redeemed himself.
