During the most recent episode of AEW Dynamite, Jake “The Snake” Roberts made his debut to confront Cody, who was immersed in a promo aimed at his arch-nemesis MJF. Cody, who suffered a defeat in AEW Revolution against MJF, recalled that it was an unfair victory, as he was hit behind the referee’s back by his opponent’s diamond ring. In this way, Cody challenged MJF to come to the ring and tell him in the fact that he had won him cleanly.

However, the person who responded to “The American Nightmare” was nothing more and nothing less than the WWE Hall of Famer Jake “The Snake Roberts. Roberts went to the ring to talk to Cody and make a promo, saying that his arrival at the company is due to his new client, ensuring that “The Dark Side” will arrive very soon.
Roberts subsequently asked Cody to stop crying “like a bitch” for his defeat against MJF, and in the words of the legend, “after 20 years of career it has never occurred to me to cry for the result of some combat “.
“Once my roots have settled, he will be like a phoenix rising from the ashes. Cody, I would recommend you not to turn your back on those you love or fear, ”a mystic Roberts would conclude, but not before confirming that he will be in his client’s corner in all his matches. In relation to that, he asked Cody’s “one-trick pony” (in relation to Arn Anderson), to accompany him as well.
At the moment, it seems that MJF will begin a rivalry with Jon Moxley according to his statements on Dynamite, so Cody could start a new story that would be related to this segment. At the moment it is not known who will be the identity of Jake Roberts’ client, but several names such as Brodie Lee (known as Luke Harper for his time in WWE) or Lance Archer have come to the fore.
