Jake Roberts Weighs In On Vince McMahon’s Retirement

WWE Hall of Famer and current AEW star Jake “The Snake” Roberts recently appeared on Busted Open Radio to discuss a wide range of topics, including his thoughts on Vince finally retiring:



“I didn’t know if he’d retire or if somebody would kill him first. I really didn’t because he’s pissed off a lot of friggin' people, man. And sometimes money can get you out of shit. But all it takes is one loose nut to put a shell in your ass that stops everything. And I always thought that it would be something along the lines of FOX television. Maybe they might try it and throw the ball out there as AEW has. AEW, they’re taking it to him right now. And I hope to Hell that helps Tony [Khan] keep pushing and keep going and grabbing. Because it’s all available, you just got to have the balls to go out and get it. “There’s a whole world out there that’s still wanting more and more, and they don’t like the flavor that WWE is putting out there. For a long time, Vince was the only game in town. Well, he’s not the only game in town anymore. There’s a new game, and it’s getting attention. It’s getting momentum going, and that’s the thing about momentum. Once it gets going, it starts to snowball once it snowballs, it’s unstoppable. And Tony and them are getting close to that point. And I hope to hell they do it, man. I hope to be a part of it. I haven’t been on TV in several months now, but I guess they’re saving me for a special occasion. I don’t mind; I’m still getting paid. So I’m pretty happy.” -Jake “The Snake” Roberts
