Jake Roberts had to spend some time off the road with AEW, but he is back and ready to do anything he can to make Tony Khan’s company the strongest he possibly can. AEW’s roster is full of people who might not have a ton of television time, and that is where Jake Roberts might be able to assist them.
While speaking on the Snake Pit, Jake Roberts said that he wants to help younger AEW talent get their footing with promo work. He is open to take talent under his wing that could use some tips, because he has a lot of knowledge to give.
“There’s not much interaction with the younger talent. There are a few guys at AEW that welcome me being there. Everyone is kind, don’t get me wrong, but that’s it. I’d like so much more. I wish AEW would use me in a position where I was helping people with interviews because I do know how to do that, and I can certainly help a few people that are struggling, and there are a few that struggle.
You can always get better on interviews, you’re never great. Dory Funk once told me, ‘If you ever think you had the perfect match,’ and this is how I feel about interviews, ‘then you should go backstage, take off your trunks, take off your boots, put them in a pile, spray lighter fluid and burn them. You don’t deserve to be in the ring anymore if you think you’ve had a perfect match. There is no such thing as a perfect match, you can always make it better.’ Same thing with interviews.”
Jake Roberts has a wealth of knowledge that he can bestow on young and old talent. Anyone would be lucky to get pointers from one of the best promo men in the business.
We’ll have to see what Jake Roberts can do for AEW in the future. He is certainly game to help out however he can. The WWE Hall of Famer wouldn’t mind stepping in the commentary booth as well. Only time will tell how things unfold for The Snake in Tony Khan’s company.
