Recently, WWE Hall Of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts was a guest on Joe Rogan’s podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience.” Roberts talked about his professional wrestling career, his difficult childhood, and how much DDPY (Diamond Dallas Page Yoga) has really helped turn his life around.
During the show, Roberts offered his thoughts on former WCW World Heavyweight Champion and actor David Arquette wrestling again. After watching a piece of one of Arquette’s recent matches with Rogan, Roberts said Arquette needs to get a “day job.” It’s safe to say that Roberts wasn’t at all impressed with Arquette’s performance inside the ring.
Recently, Arquette responded to Roberts’ comments during an interview with Booker T on “Heated Conversations.” Roberts’ comments came up while Arquette and Booker T were discussing his recent Hardcore match with Nick Cage – the match Roberts was critiquing with Rogan:
“I was supposed to do a Game Changer event during SummerSlam, I think, in New York, and it didn’t work out with my schedule or whatever, so I had to back out last minute and I was supposed to wrestle Ethan Page, who is an incredible wrestler, and so is Nick Gage.
“I’m not knocking that guy, but it wasn’t gonna be a hardcore match. It was gonna be a regular match, but then Joey Ryan got injured recently, so they had a slot open up and it was in L.A., my hometown. Nick Gage, I wasn’t really aware of him. I knew of him, but I wasn’t really aware of the extent of the whole thing.
“After I started researching him [laughter], I’m like, ‘What am I getting myself into?’ So, I agreed to do it and I’m crazier than some people know. Hollywood definitely knows. That’s why I don’t work quite as much as maybe I’d like to, but I’m real. I always loved Mick Foley.
“I always loved Terry Funk. I always loved Jake “The Snake” until he said I should get a day job. I got a day job, Jake The Snake. I got a day job, thank you.”
