Jake “The Snake” Roberts recently joined the IN THE ROOM podcast with Brady Hicks, The Stro (WCW’s Maestro), Kathie Fitzpatrick and Derrick McDonald. Here are the highlights.
On turning his life around:
“I’ve got the world by the tail. And life is so good for me. Even beyond the WWE years … I’ve got the movie going on, the movie is going strong. It’s helped some people, the comedy thing I’m doing, which is me sitting down, having a blast telling old road stories. Everybody loves it. That’s awesome, too because the fans mean so much more to me now that I’m sober and cleaned up.”
On Andre the Giant:
“[Andre] woke me up to some exciting things. He held me down once and farted on me for about 30 seconds, which was incredible, I might add.”
On working with snakes:
“I was terrified of [snakes], man. It just goes to show me how far I’ll go if you pay me enough.”
