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.
Roberts 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 talked about his feud in 1996 against Jerry Lawler. Roberts claimed that Vince McMahon told Lawler to pour whiskey on Roberts when he had alcohol issues.
“Absolutely was in horrible taste. They were making fun of me being an alcoholic. He went out and poured a bottle of whiskey on my face, burnt the sh*t out of my eyes. Ask Jerry [Lawler] he’ll tell you the same damn thing [that they used real whiskey to pour on his face] because when it came time for me to pour it on him, he goes, ‘You can’t pour that on me.’ I said, ‘What do you mean? You poured it on me.’ He goes, ‘Vince wanted it poured on you.’ That motherf**ker.
That was a real bad angle and even Lawler didn’t want to do it.”
Vince McMahon retired back in July and left the reins to Triple H. Jake Roberts might have been happy about this fact in the end. Regardless, he is in AEW now and that’s what matters.
