In an illustrious career peppered with memorable milestones, Hall of Famer Jake "The Snake" Roberts has witnessed and contributed to countless wrestling spectacles. Yet, the recent AEW Revolution event in Greensboro, North Carolina, stands out as a significant addition to his storied legacy.

Participating in the event, Roberts was present ringside, supporting Lance Archer in the high-stakes eight-man scramble match that would crown the next contender for the AEW World Championship. On a recent installment of his podcast, "The Snake Pit," Roberts shared his exhilarating experience at AEW Revolution, an event that drew an impressive crowd of 16,000 enthusiastic fans.

"What a weekend, what a show," exclaimed Roberts, highlighting the unparalleled energy of the audience and the exceptional quality of the matches. According to him, the event was a remarkable showcase of wrestling prowess, with each match meeting and surpassing the high expectations set by the AEW brand.

Sting's Grand Farewell

Among the evening's unforgettable moments was the farewell match of Sting, a fellow Hall of Famer, who concluded his celebrated career alongside Darby Allin by retaining the AEW World Tag Team Championships in a thrilling bout against the Young Bucks.

Having shared a rivalry with Sting in WCW back in 1992, Roberts expressed his admiration for Sting's grand exit, even confessing to a touch of envy over the legendary wrestler's fitting send-off. "What a send-off," Roberts remarked, lamenting only the absence of a ticker tape parade, though he noted the celebration came remarkably close to such grandeur.

Roberts also cherished the reunion with fellow veterans like Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat, Diamond Dallas Page (DDP), and others who attended the event, adding to the nostalgia and significance of the occasion. The AEW Revolution event not only marked a high point in Roberts' career but also served as a testament to the enduring spirit and camaraderie within the wrestling community.

This gathering of wrestling's finest, alongside the poignant farewell to Sting, underscored the profound impact and legacy of these athletes in the world of professional wrestling.
