Jake “The Snake” Roberts’ Retirement Match Announced



It was announced Friday that Jake “The Snake” Roberts’ retirement match will take place next month during Wrestlereunion weekend in Los Angeles, California:

Jake “The Snake” Roberts has been actively wrestling for 35 years. This past August at a show in NY, Jake made an announcement that he was retiring from pro wrestling. The internet reports misconstrued his “retirement speech” as immediate but he continued to wrestle at several previously agreed to obligations knowing his last match was around the corner.

For several months, Wrestlereunion had been trying to work out something regarding Jake’s schedule and make him a premium guest and we had previously offered him a spot in the Legends battle royal. It had been several months since we had any conversations with Jake Roberts and quite honestly, we didn’t think he would be part of this year’s convention.

Then, late last night, fate put the two of us together on the phone once again and Jake asked if there was still an invitation. We said we would love to add him to the battle royal and then he said that he had another goal in mind, he wanted to end his wrestling career at a location where the Legends are respected and the best young talent was on showcase.

Jake Roberts asked us if we would host his retirement match. Per his request and with our great honor, Jake Roberts’ retirement match will take place at the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla show on Saturday January 29th.

Jake Roberts will also be a Wrestlereunion vendor guest and will be doing pictures and autographs on Saturday afternoon. Additionally, Jake will be doing Deluxe Photo Ops and video ops, more information on those as well as pricing will be provided in the upcoming weeks.
