Jake Roberts is a veteran in professional wrestling and certainly knows his way around a promo. His in-ring psychology is unmatched and has impressed fans for several years. Vince McMahon is certainly aware of his ability.
Roberts spoke to Premier Live TV, where the WWE Hall Of Famer revealed he was hospitalized for COPD. He then spoke about WWE and how it currently is. He said that it is simply not possible to write good storylines when the writers have never been part of the professional wrestling business.
You know, you can’t have a great product when you got people writing your television that’s never been in wrestling. I don’t get that. Where’s that thinking coming from? Oh, I know where his thinking’s at – Vince’s thinking’s that, ‘Oh, I am so freaking good that I can make chicken soup out of chicken sh*t, and I can use idiots to freaking write for me. That’s how big my product is.’ And he’s pretty much right because he’s got so much TV time, he can get over pretty much anything.”
The company currently is starting to have Superstars as writers as well, with Daniel Bryan and Edge being part of the writers’ team.
