The following are highlights of a recent interview with Jake “The Snake” Roberts:
On DDP saving his life: “Dallas saved my life. I owe everything I have right now to him and helping me get back on the right path. It wasn’t rehab Dallas put me through. It was tough love and it sunk in more than any rehab I ever tried.”
On his “Old School RAW” appearance: “I was feeling such emotion when my old music hit and came out to the ring that night. I had been such a mess for so long and wasn’t sure I would ever be welcomed back to the WWE. I pissed off a lot of people but you never say never in this business.”
On his WWE Hall Of Fame induction: “Had I not gotten clean with Dallas’ help, I wouldn’t be going into the Hall of Fame. The WWE doesn’t want to put someone out there and not be able to trust what they will say in front of a worldwide audience. Being clean has given me another chance in life.”
