Jim Ross Gives Sad Update On Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts


AEW commentator Jim Ross has said that Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts’ health is “not good” which is why he’s not appeared on TV lately.

Roberts is the on-screen manager of Lance Archer but has spent more time away lately due to his health issues.

During his Grilling JR podcast, Ross talked about the health of “The Snake”:

“I just saw him here a few weeks ago and he’s still battling his breathing issues. He’s not in great health. That’s why you don’t see him as often on AEW television as he once was when he was fronting Lance Archer. But his health is not good and he’s taking the means to address it. He still has surgeries left. But he has breathing issues.”

Speaking about his own health, JR said: “I really appreciate everybody’s support and patience with me over time. Sometimes I’m a little cranky, but you have to understand that I’m never pain free anymore. That’s what is challenging. My opportunities for AEW and Tony Khan, with all the guys there, I’m very blessed to have this situation in my lap, and as long as I can still do my work and not embarrass myself, as long as I can deliver, why not? What else am I going to do? This is my life. All I’m doing is living my life and I’m loving every damn minute of it.”
