WWE Hall Of Famer Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts has earned the respect of the entire pro wrestling world and for a very good reason. He has gone through a lot in his life and eventually conquered his demons. He was also blasted for being a hypocrite recently.
As seen on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, MJF truly shocked the pro wrestling world thanks to his firey promo. He blasted AEW President Tony Khan and begged to be fired.
Jake Roberts criticized what MJF did by no showing fan event before AEW Double Or Nothing. While speaking on his podcast, Jim Cornette blasted Jake Roberts for being a hypocrite.
“I didn’t even do this to hop on Jake, you know, with the crazy train stories because everybody knows them but for Jake to say this, I mean, how can Jake Roberts utter the words? And for me, you don’t miss stuff like that. ‘This is your fans, your fanbase. These people paid to get in there and you no-showed?’ Anybody else in the world that would be a pretty f***ing valid criticism of MJF whether he was pissed or not. But Jake Roberts? The all-time leader in no-show. ‘Hold-up, f**k you, I’m gonna be drunk if I’m there or high if I’m there or maybe I won’t be there or maybe I won’t be there long.'”
Eric Bischoff stated that only handful of WWE talent can match up to MJF. it remains to be seen how AEW will progress MJF’s story.
