WWE Hall of Famer Jake Roberts believes AEW's Kenny Omega is one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, despite witnessing a plethora of talented stars during his time in the industry.
Jake Roberts is a big fan of Kenny Omega and has given positive feedback on his wrestling skills. The Cleaner recently had an IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship bout against Will Ospreay at NJPW's Wrestle Kingdom 17, which is considered a potential candidate for Match of the Year.
On a recent episode of his podcast, "The Snake Pit," WWE Hall of Famer Jake Roberts shared that he believes AEW wrestler Kenny Omega is more talented than wrestling legends and WWE Hall of Famers Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair. While discussing the top-tier wrestlers of all time, Roberts said that he would place Omega above both HBK and The Nature Boy.
Jake Roberts also praised Kenny Omega's finishing move, the One-Winged Angel:
"He’s unbelievable, man, and I love his finishing maneuver [One-Winged Angel], and knee to the face, that’s pretty crisp," said Roberts (H/T - WrestlingINC)
The Snake also said that he does not consider Ric Flair as the GOAT of wrestling and instead gives Omega the honor of being one of the best in-ring performers ever.
