New, comments

Jake “The Snake” Roberts has managed Lance Archer in AEW for about a year and a half. But Roberts hasn’t been seen for several weeks on Dynamite or Rampage during Archer’s recent storyline with Jon Moxley and Minoru Suzuki. It became apparent that Roberts was off television due to “undisclosed health reasons.

Last night, Roberts provided a health update to all of his fans via Twitter, where he revealed that he’s okay and back on the road with AEW:

“After 5 weeks off 4 surgery I was bk in the saddle again. Wow what a rush!! (Thx HAWK!!!) I love all the fans that show their appreciation! I came alive!! Thx AEW for making me a part of it. Life is so good”

On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez indicated that Roberts was out recovering from foot surgery.
