That’s great to hear. While we watch wrestlers do some amazing things every single week, there is a lot more that goes on in their lives that we do not see. Some of these things are rather serious, as they have everyday problems just like anyone else. Occasionally that includes serious health issues, which was the case with a certain wrestling legend. The good thing is that the key there is “was”.

During the latest episode of the DDT Snake Pit podcast, AEW’s Jake Roberts gave an update on his health. Roberts revealed that despite having COPD, two unspecified lung diseases and emphysema, he no longer has to use an oxygen tank, save for when he is on an airplane. Roberts has recently returned to AEW television where he has continued managing Lance Archer.

Opinion: That is absolutely great to hear, as Roberts has had a long history of health issues over the years. It is nice to have something positive for a change, as Roberts still seems able to offer quite a bit to the wrestling world. Hopefully he gets to continue in that role for a very long time to come, as it would be horrible for anything even worse to happen to him, either related to this or anything else.

What do you think of Roberts? What else can he do in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
