Jake “The Snake” Roberts has tested positive for COVID-19.
Roberts took to Twitter this evening and announced that he has tested positive for the coronavirus.
“I’ve waited so long. Actually thought I was bulletproof. Yes I’ve gotten Covid-19!!!!!,” he wrote.
Roberts then posted a follow-up tweet and said he thinks he got sick while with family or out shopping. He also commented on how AEW President Tony Khan knows he is high risk.
“Yes after not going to do my AEW work for nearly 3 months. Tony Kahn knows I’m high risk and has gone above and beyond all expectations trying to keep everyone safe. Pretty sure I got it from family or when I was out shopping,” he wrote.
While Roberts has been away from AEW TV recovering from foot surgery, and due to Lance Archer’s neck injury and concussion suffered at the end of October, he has still made recent signing appearances. Roberts’ positive COVID-19 test is especially concerning as he has dealt with health issues over the years, and suffers from COPD, which makes it hard to breathe.
Roberts signed a new two-year deal with AEW back in July. He has been with the company since March 2020.
