WWE Hall Of Famer Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts remains one of the most respected pro wrestling legends of all time. His ability to cut eerie promos continues to mesmerize fans even now. Jim Ross also explained his previous comments about Jake Roberts’ health.

Jake Roberts’ health is always something fans worry about and there is a good reason for that. Jim Ross previously stated that Jake Roberts was suffering from serious health issues.

Jake Roberts eventually shut down what Jim Ross said. While speaking on the Grilling JR Podcast, Jim Ross explained his controversial comments about Jake Roberts’ health.

“I said some stuff about Jake’s health and his breathing issues and he denies as sickly as I portrayed him to be. Maybe he’s right, he’d know better than me. But I know that his health has been challenging, he’s got a breathing machine, oxygen he carries with him and to me, that’s not normal but he’s dealing with it. He’s under great doctor’s care and I didn’t want to start some bullsh*t about Jake because it might affect his bookings.


I was going to sign Jake for an appearance but I heard JR say he wasn’t in good health so maybe I’ll pass on that,’ don’t pass on Jake Roberts for doing anything. Put him to work, that’s going to be the best medicine you can give the guy and you’ll be happy you did. I don’t intend, nor do I now, to stir the s–t, but it was just an update on a guy that I respect who’s changed his life a great deal and I can only hope that he continues to change in a positive way and reap the benefits.”

We will have to wait and see when Jake Roberts will be returning to AEW television. It has been a while since the WWE Hall Of Famer was seen on the show and fans certainly miss him. It remains to be seen what the company will have planned for Roberts once he is back.
