WWE Hall of Famer Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts has been part of the AEW since 2020. Prior to that, Roberts made a name for himself in WWE, where he had classic feuds with the likes of Randy Savage and more. He has interacted with many other legends during this time in WWE, including Andre The Giant. In fact, he recently shared a very outrageous story about Andre The Giant.

Jake Roberts worked in WWE for a long time and knows how Vince McMahon functions. Roberts even blasted Vince McMahon previously for humiliating people in WWE. Naturally, Roberts has a ton of exciting stories to tell fans from his days as a pro wrestler.

While speaking to Paradox of Sports, Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts brought up his feud with Andre in 1989. Roberts then recalled the time his snake bit Andre and broke off two fangs into him, but Andre didn’t even notice the fangs.

“Andre wasn’t afraid of anything, man. He did a great job in making people believe he was afraid. Hell, one night the snake broke two fangs off in his shoulder and he didn’t even know it. And I went back to the locker room, ’cause the snake had bit me too, and I didn’t even wanna go in the locker room because I was afraid he was gonna kick my ass.”


After Rick Rude pulled the fangs out, he said, ‘the snake must be hungry.’ That’s all he said. He didn’t get mad, he didn’t want help, he don’t need a damn band-aid. It’ll quit bleedin’ after a while, don’t worry about it. That was it.”

Jake Roberts also believes modern pro wrestling took out big tradition that used to be the norm back in the day. Regardless, Roberts has lived a very interesting life and will continue to share stories whenever he wants to. We can only imagine what stories he has left to tell.
