• “85% of them, you won’t even remember their names” – WWF Legend On The AEW Roster

During a recent appearance on the ‘Cheap Heat’ podcast, WWF Legend Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts made it clear that there are way too many ‘flash in the pan’ wrestlers out there nowadays, especially in AEW, who – unlike him – won’t stand the test of time.

Here’s what the 2014 WWE Hall of Famer said:

“10 Years from now, half those guys, you won’t even remember their names.

I say 85% of them, you won’t even remember their names. Because they’re flash in the pans and they don’t have any character.

Jake ‘The Snake’ has not been in the ring since 1997, 2000? That’s 20-something years; and I’m so friggin’ busy now, man, I’m barely keeping my head above the water.

I don’t see these young kids doing signings, and you know why? Because nobody knows who the f**k they are.”

Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts is working as a manager for Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling since 2019 and is also working backstage to teach a lot of the AEW wrestlers how to cut promos and how to establish their characters.
