Jake “The Snake” Roberts, member of the WWE Hall of Fame, is still regarded as one of the greatest pro wrestlers ever. Fans are still captivated by his talent to craft creepy promos and even his use of snakes that he displayed back in the day. However, it seems that Jake Roberts is involved in a backstage role with Tony Khan’s AEW and now, Roberts has shed some light on it.

Jake Roberts made a comeback on AEW television on February 24th, 2023, edition of Rampage. He recently disclosed in WrestleRant interview that he also has a job behind the scenes.

“You know, everything they’re doing now is rushed so much. They’re not taking the time to develop characters. They’ve got a lot of great athletes going out there flying through the air and doing inconceivable things to their bodies. At the end of the night, nothing sticks.

What was that? What are they gonna do next? It’s because there is not a character involved, and I’d like to see them start working on their characters. Of course, they’ll do that with interviews, that’ll help a lot, and hopefully I’ll be able to help some of those guys do better interviews. That’s my new job in AEW, and hopefully I’ll do a good job of it. But, the product is still needed, it’s still wanted, but it gets frustrating when you see the same mistakes going on and on. Sometimes I’m like, if I had some teeth to pull out I would but these are connected.” 


Jake Roberts’ new role in All Elite Wrestling will see him work with the talent closely. His main focus would be on the development of stars in terms of character and also promos, something he had great expertise in during his heyday.

The Snake has been known to be one of the most talented superstars of all time. With his years of experience inside the squared circle, Jake Roberts will be an excellent addition to AEW’s corporate structure.

Jake Roberts has extensive experience working with WWE and is familiar with Vince McMahon’s methods. Consequently, Roberts has a wealth of fascinating tales to share with the AEW roster about his time as a professional wrestler.

Tony Khan has assembled a great team of professionals to develop his upstart promotion. With the addition of WWE Hall of Famer Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts, we can surely expect a major change in the working of AEW and greater development of talent under his guidance.
