Jake Roberts was used in a managerial position by working alongside Lance Archer in AEW. Sadly, Roberts hasn’t been seen on television in a good while. His booking is a mixed bag due to health issues and creative decisions. Now, Roberts has given an update on his future with the promotion.
On the latest episode of “The Snake Pit with Jake Roberts,” the WWE Hall of Famer mentioned that it “would be fun” to host an episode of his Snake Pit talk show on AEW television. He’s willing to help out with the young talent no matter what, and game for whatever AEW wants from him.
“I’d get myself in all sorts of trouble there, live TV holy sh*t. I wouldn’t be at the bottom of the barrel, I’d be under the barrel,”
“No, whatever AEW wants out of me I am there, whether it’s managing Lance or doing something behind the scenes with trying to help kids.”
Jake Roberts also mentioned that he has “been approached to do something where we visit hospitals and stuff.” It’s possible Roberts was contacted about the AEW Community Program, working with charities in local areas where they’re putting on shows that week.
“I am very, very, very excited to do it, it’s near and dear to my heart,”
“Hopefully, we will be able to hit some rehabs too where we can talk to some people and see if we can help them break the corner and break out the madness.”
It’s great to know that Jake Roberts is still being used by AEW in some fashion. Hopefully, Roberts will break through with as many people as possible about addiction issues, since the WWE Hall of Famer had a history with substances. Until then, one can hope Roberts will be back on television.
