Jake Roberts Believes Cody Rhodes’ Loss at Mania Disappointed a Lot of People

Jake Roberts is a fan of Cody Rhodes and hopes WWE straps the title to him.

During this week’s Wrestling Perspective Podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts joined the show. Various topics were discussed during the episode. Of those topics, “The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes was discussed as was his recent loss to the “Tribal Chief” Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39.

Jake has competed at seven WrestleMania’s, with his last appearance being at WrestleMania 30 when he appeared during the Hall of Fame Introduction.

While appearing on the Wrestling Perspective Podcast, Jake voiced his thoughts on why he knew Vince would not let Cody win the title on Night Two of this year’s WrestleMania.

“Well, knowing Vince McMahon, I could have told you that’s what would happen. Because everybody just knew Cody [Rhodes] was going to take it [get the victory], and if everybody’s calling for it. Vince is going to do quite the opposite, you know? He doesn’t want anyone calling his shit. So, as far as business-wise, it did disappoint a lot of people.”

Roberts says.

“I don’t think it hurt Cody. But, I mean, my god, they threw everything but the kitchen sink at him. But, at some point soon, they would give the title to him.”

Roberts said.

Jake also shared his appreciation of Cody and AEW for allowing him to work and return to professional wrestling in 2020.

“[What] AEW gave me is that when I came back, they let me go out to the ring and do that thing with [promo] Cody. It meant so much to me to go out and feel the ropes again, feel the mat, smell it. It’s just an amazing feeling that I had, and I really appreciate that.”

Roberts said.

Cody Rhodes was recently defeated by Brock Lesnar at WWE Backlash 2023.
