Jake 'The Snake' Roberts Reportedly Shows Up Intoxicated To Indy Event, Causes A Scene
|By Marc Middleton | October 30, 2012 | Comments|
Roberts was booked for an independent show in La Marque, Texas on Saturday night for the Coastal Wrestling Federation where he was set to face a wrestler named Johnny Blade. According to fans in attendance, Roberts had been drinking and got upset when he felt his opponent was getting too much attention, more than Roberts himself.
Roberts reportedly confronted Blade during a mid-show promo in the ring. The story goes that Roberts ordered a confused referee to the ring, hit Blade in the head and then fell on top of him for a quick, sloppy pin. Roberts then reportedly walked straight from the ring to his car and left.
There were about 300 fans in attendance and the promoter issued an apology for Roberts' action.
