WWE Hall of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts has been with All Elite Wrestling since March 2020 and has recently signed a new two-year deal with the company back in July. Jake Roberts has been dealing with health issues for a number of years now and he even uses an oxygen device to breathe as the wrestling legend is currently suffering from COPD lung disease, which means he is having difficulty to breathe.
Even though Jake Roberts has been away from AEW TV for several weeks now as he’s been recovering from foot surgery and Lance Archer has been dealing with a neck injury and a concussion, which he suffered towards the end of October, the professional wrestling legend still made a number of signing sessions appearances.
Jake Roberts recently took to his Twitter and revealed that he has tested positive for COVID-19. Jake Roberts also mentioned on his Twitter that he thinks he got infected with the virus while with family or out shopping and that AEW President and CEO Tony Khan knows he is a high risk.

I’ve waited so long. Actually thought I was bulletproof. Yes I’ve gotten Covid-19!!!!!— JakeSnakeDDT (@JakeSnakeDDT) December 29, 2021
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.— JakeSnakeDDT (@JakeSnakeDDT) December 29, 2021
