We recently reported on Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts’ ongoing attempt to improve his health and personal issues, which was encouraging, and now Roberts has spoken further on that, as well as other subjects, during an interview with Kayfabe Kickout.
“I was at a point where I no longer had any hope at all. Synchronized swimming was my second choice. The real truth is I had no place to go but up and I was very fortunate to have a true friend reach out to me. The dark place I was at mentally, the trouble I was in physically, and knowing deep inside that it was an all or nothing scenario meant this was my last chance if I was ever going to come out of the deep spiral I was in….I’ve lost 60 pounds and my goal hasn’t changed from above; being sober, healthy, and happy.”
Rumours that his long-term target is an in-ring return:
“Never say never. But that is not what I’m here for. What my dream may have been in the beginning pales in comparison to the dream that has become. I want to excel in what I’m doing and slay the beast that used to control my life. If Jake Roberts can do these things, bring myself back to health, conquer my demons, then I will become something much bigger than Jake Roberts ever was. That would be an example that you can win the war that you are battling.”
Stone Cold Steve Austin:
“I love Steve very much and respect him. I believed in him before anybody else. He had been given a raw deal several times in other organizations but I was the first person to step up and say, ‘This is the guy!’ I hate when I’m right.”
Macho Man Randy Savage, and working with him:
It was never boring, another one sorely missed.
“Smartest man ever to own a wrestling company. Did more for wrestling than Moses.”
