WWE Legend Jake “The Snake” Roberts recently spoke to Pro Wrestling Powerhouse Radio. Here are some highlights:
His upcoming books: “I’ve written a book. I’ve got 600 pages into a book, actually. I just started into the WWE, so that tells you that the book is going to be pretty thick. Instead of going with a book the weighs 50 lbs, we’re going to break this into three parts?a trilogy type of thing.”
Possibly teaching wrestling psychology to wrestlers across the country: “I’d love to do that, but it takes a lot of foot work?and my feet don’t move that fast anymore, man. So, that’s an idea that I’d love to do. I would love to share the knowledge that I have. You know, and it’s actually a choice and something I should be doing regardless. I’ve communicated the knowledge I have over the years and helped teach a lot of great talent that are no longer available. I’d like to be sharing what I know. I’d like an opportunity in the WWE to help their talent?I know they need it.”
His experience at PWS in New Jersey: “Well, I had a great time. I mean, ya know, coming back after the journey I’ve been through, man. Ya know, I went all the way off the deep end to such a dark, horrible place and then to rebound and become resurrected and step back out of it is amazing enough. But to have the opportunity to get back into the ring, the one thing I truly loved in my whole life, to have that opportunity to go back out and perform and be in front of the fans. And feel the itch and feel that twitch again?man, it doesn’t get any better than that. You have great crowds up there. It was fun being around the fans, talking to the fans. Enjoying my time with them?taking photos, signing pictures and whatever. It’s just a wonderful place I live in right now, man.”
Jake also discussed some of his demons in the past, why he was the “go-to” guy for heels before they got to Hogan in the 80’s, why the feud with Hulk Hogan never happened and much more. You can access the interview by clicking here.
