Jake Roberts is a WWE Hall of Famer, and respected all over the world. His story saw him take a gig with All Elite Wrestling, and now his influence in the company has only grown from there.
Jake Roberts wears multiple hats within AEW, showcasing his versatility both on-screen and behind the scenes. Notably recognized as the manager for Lance Archer, he also holds a significant role in the company’s outreach initiatives. Now, another title can be added to his repertoire, that of coach, as The Snake himself confirmed in a recent interview.
While speaking to the Wrestling Binge, Jake Roberts addressed the question of why he hadn’t assumed a coaching role in AEW thus far. Given his extensive experience in the industry and his reputation as one of its most exceptional orators, many see him as an ideal candidate to pass down his knowledge to the emerging talent.
Jake Roberts acknowledged that he is indeed involved in coaching, but he also noted that the launch of Collision has somewhat temporarily redirected his focus:
“I am coaching some in AEW. They’ve changed up the order of things there, so we gotta figure out where it fits now, with that Saturday show [Collision] starting, you know. It just, it really changed everything up.”
We will have to see how Jake Roberts fits into AEW’s new schedule with Dynamite and Collision. The company can certainly use him, and only time will tell how his role alongside Lance Archer will also grow as the Murderhawk Monster continues in AEW.
Jake Roberts has a lot of knowledge that he can share, and AEW has used him as a coach in the past. If he is able to stay healthy and keep making the road to AEW dates, odds are the company will be much more likely to give him extra responsibilities.
