Few WWE Hall of Famers truly captured the interest of fans like Jake “The Snake” Roberts. The Snake was able to captivate fans all over with his unique psychology, and it turns out that there was a lot going on with the complicated legend.

Jake Roberts was able to return to WWE in 2014 for an “Old School Raw.” While speaking on his Snake Pit podcast, Jake Roberts remembered the dark place he was in prior to his Raw appearance.

“You’ve got to remember as to where I was at. I was hating myself. I was still in the hate mode with myself because I was getting in shape and I’d look at myself and I’d think “why didn’t you f***ing take care of yourself? Why didn’t you do this Jake? No instead you had to smoke crack and f***ing drink and f***ing take pills.’”

For his segment on Old-School RAW, Roberts confronted the Shield, who was composed of Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, and Seth Rollins. After Dean Ambrose was laid out with CM Punk‘s GTS, Jake placed a snake on the future AEW World Champion.


We’ll have to see what’s next for Jake Roberts, but he seems to be in a much better place nowadays. Keep checking back with Ringside news for more.
