"When I retired I didn't retire the way I wanted to," Roberts said. "I couldn't do anything, and that's not me in wrestling. I always gave more than I could. So that was my first thought was to do that again, but now my dream is to help other people. I've been helped so much by Diamond Dallas Page. I found out that I don't have to get high anymore with drugs. I can get high by helping other people… I would like to have a whole legion or army of ex-dope heads or ex-drunks that say, 'If Jake Roberts didn't give up and do this, I can too.' That's the message I want to get out there. If I make it into the hall of fame or one more match, that's wonderful. But what would make me really happy is to help others."
Roberts also revealed that he has started talking to three of his kids again. Page is also quoted in the story, you can check it out by clicking here.
