Jake Roberts

Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts has outlined which two characters in AEW he believes could become huge!

While speaking with Inside The Ropes‘ Lead Writer Gary Cassidy, Roberts – whose character work is widely regarded as some of the best – would say both Darby Allin and Sammy Guevara would be his picks – but said they both have to continue to evolve as they navigate their respective careers.

You are one of the most iconic characters in wrestling. You mentioned passing on that knowledge to the Undertaker in the past and in AEW now. Is there any younger talents in AEW that you look at and go, “Oh, they’ve got potential, they are going to be huge at one point”?

Yeah, absolutely! Darby… The Latin Sex God…

Sammy Guevara?

Yes. There’s a couple other guys that have it too but it’s all about evolving. You can’t just stop in the middle of the song and quit. You’ve got to keep on going. So it will be interesting to see these guys develop.

Meanwhile, current AEW star Jon Moxley would name-check both men when asked, too, but also praise Ricky Starks and Will Hobbs when asked about the future stars of the company.
