WWE Hall Of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts recently spoke with Niagara Frontier Publications about his pro wrestling career, how his DDT finisher came about, his struggle with sobriety and more.

Additionally, during the discussion, the WWE legend revealed that his mother has passed away. Below is an excerpt from the interview.

“Well, right now I am down. I just buried my mother. … That is an empty spot. I really feel lost, like, ‘Wait a minute, I can’t pick up the phone and call her.’ It still feels weird. It is a hole that has to be filled. I am so grateful that I was able to get sober and clean before she left, because I know she worried about me constantly, and hated the fact that I was going through what I went through. But she was always there for me, man. If I reached out, she was always there, you know?

“So, to have cleaned up, and gotten right, I know she was happy with me with that. And she was comfortable. But to go through this process, and not drink, is so huge for me. Because, normally, boy, I would’ve been on a binge and a half for something like this comes along. I’ve not had one moment that I wanted to go drink or go do drugs or anything. I’m really grateful that I came through this thing. … All I can do is just a day-by-day process and keep living the dream, man, and that’s sobriety.”
