AEW’s Jake Roberts Offers Promising Health Update AEW

Jake Roberts has provided a promising update on his condition, following a recent health scare.

In late December, the Hall of Famer revealed that he had tested positive for COVID-19. Fans were quick to send the wrestling veteran messages of support, with Roberts notably dealing with lung issues prior to his positive COVID-19 test.

On the latest episode of ‘DDP Snake Pit’, Roberts revealed that he doesn’t have to use an oxygen tank nowadays. Opening up about his health anxiety during the pandemic, Roberts said:

“Genetics being what they are, my mother had two lung diseases that she passed on to me. There’s no cure for either one of them.

“The last thing I should ever do is smoke a cigarette, and yet I’ve been smoking since I was 17, to the point that I have COPD and a little emphysema tossed in.

“Now I have to see a specialist. I have to keep my eyes on it. During the pandemic, it was a real scare for me because if I got COVID, I probably wouldn’t have made it. I was really terrified. I was one of the first to get the damn shots because I have to protect my ass.

“Today, I feel great. I don’t have to use any oxygen at all. I do have to use it on the airplanes when they pressurize and go up high, but it’s something that can be dealt with. I can still live a great life.

“No, I can’t run a marathon, never have, never will. I’m going to be around for a long time because I didn’t make it through all this s**t that I did to myself to drop now. (laughs)”

We continue to wish Roberts all the best.
