Nerd Repository has an interview with WWE Hall of Famer Jake "The Snake" Roberts, who talked about his struggles with addiction, The Resurrection of Jake "The Snake" Roberts documentary, his real-life fear of snakes and more. Below are a couple of highlights:
If he'll return to the WWE ring:
"I hope so. I'm going to talk to Vince McMahon [about it] at WrestleMania. I would like my last match, forever, to be at WrestleMania next year in Dallas, Texas. I would love to be on that show. I want to go out and give it my best, and I would be in much better shape than I probably was at the end of my career."
Possible opponent for final match:
"I'd like it to be a situation where it would help him. I can think of a thousand scenarios? ideally, it would be something with Bray Wyatt? [but] he doesn't need Jake Roberts. So it's gotta be somebody that's on the way up, that needs a little extra 'oomph' like Steve Austin did. And we'll see if I can't help them out.
"Maybe it could be a situation where the winner must use the DDT, and from that point on, they're the master of the DDT. How about that?"
Jake also discussed discovering that pro wrestling wasn't real, his fear of snakes, being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here. You can also check out my review of The Resurrection of Jake "The Snake" Roberts at this link.
