A WWE Hall of Famer believes Lance Archer has “everything” and doesn’t know why he isn’t a bigger star.
In February 2020, Lance Archer signed with All Elite Wrestling and quickly aligned with Jake Roberts. He went on to feud with Cody Rhodes and Jon Moxley shortly after his arrival in the company.
Despite an initial push and challenging for titles on multiple occasions, fans have been critical of Archer’s stop-and-start pushes in the promotion.
In 2023, Archer has only wrestled a handful of times in AEW, while making several appearances for NJPW and other promotions.
Speaking with Good Karma Wrestling, Jake Roberts discussed why Archer isn’t a bigger star in AEW. He said:
“I don’t know, they just don’t like the flavor I guess. It’s a shame because Lance has everything.”
“I’ve helped him work on his promos he’s raised those up. I don’t know what else he needs to do but I can’t figure it out.”
Describing how being involved with All Elite Wrestling has meant a lot to him since he started working with them, Roberts said:
“It has meant so much to me, being gone for so long and not being able to get out there and then AEW gives me an opportunity and they’ve kept me around.”
“They like what I do, whether in the ring or out of the ring, or helping the guys work on promos, whatever it is, I don’t mind doing it, I enjoy doing it. It’s what I should be doing. Teaching.”
