That doesn’t sound good. There are certain wrestlers throughout the history of the sport who have become such legends that fans follow what happen to them once they have left the ring. Unfortunately that is not always the best news as sometimes you hear about someone who is not doing so well and that seems to be the case again, as a legend is not in great shape.
During a recent edition of his Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross revealed that WWE Hall of Famer Jake Roberts has been dealing with serious health issues. Without specifying, Ross mentioned that Roberts was having issues breathing but is trying to deal with it. This includes some upcoming surgeries. The health issues are the reason why Roberts has not been appearing on AEW television as frequently in recent weeks.
Opinion: This is one of those things that might not be the biggest surprise, as Roberts has had a long history of health issues over the years. It does explain why he has not been around as of late, as Roberts has only made infrequent appearances in recent weeks. What matters most is Roberts getting healthy, and if he is doing what can be done to make things better, good for him.
What do you think of Roberts? What can he do in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
