Jake 'The Snake' Roberts has self-quarantined himself as a result of the ongoing global health crisis.
The WWE Hall-of-Famer and current AEW manager confirmed this while speaking on Wrestling Inc.'s Daily podcast, stating that he is currently holed up in an Atlanta, Georgia hotel room after leaving Diamond Dallas Page's house to work a recent set of AEW television tapings.
"I'm quarantined here," Jake said. "I was living with Dallas and he was one of the first people to say 'if you leave, you can't come back.' AEW wanted me to come out so I went and did it but I couldn't go back to Dallas' house. He had a baby there and nobody needs to be sick around a baby."
Roberts said that he attended the tapings to help AEW but was now paying for it, adding that he now has to remain in the hotel room for another 3-4 weeks. He has, however, been upgraded to a bigger suite, so at least that's something!
Jake's client, Lance Archer, meets Colt Cabana in the first round of AEW's TNT Championship Tournament on next week's Dynamite. An eventual showdown with Cody remains on the cards.
