Jake Roberts took to Twitter to alert fans that he will be missing tonight’s live AEW Dynamite from Jacksonville Flordia. He will also be missing next week’s show because that episode will be tape tomorrow.
Roberts noted that his absence is due to illness, nothing related to COVID-19.
The WWE Hall of Famer said on Twitter :
“Unfortunately, I won’t be able to appear tonight due to illness (not COVID). These days we all have to be on point. Looking forward to seeing everyone in two weeks. In the meantime, keep an eye on Lance for me on #AEWDynamite LIVE TONIGHT 8/7c on TNT.”
Roberts has been struggling with COPD, which, unfortunately, you can tell from some of his Promos. Despite the diagnosis, he intends to continue working as Lance Archer’s manager.
