AEW Star Reveals New Role In The Company
WWE Hall of Famer Jake Roberts has a new role in AEW as he seeks to help his fellow stars develop their characters and eradicate some of the mistakes he sees.
Speaking to WrestleRant, Jake Roberts began by explaining some of the issues he sees with the current product in AEW:
“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.
Roberts then added that his new role in AEW will see him help talents with the character aspect of wrestling and admits being frustrated when he sees mistakes being repeated:
“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 recently returned to AEW television alongside his long-time associate Lance Archer as The Murderhawk Monster defeated Bryce Saturn on Rampage.
