Was Jake Roberts meant to be 'Taker's higher power (1999)
I seem to have read this before; even McMahon mentioned his name in the promo at the time, so presumably dirtsheets were suggesting.
At the time Jake was a drunk and probably high on crack, but he didn't look too bad at ECW November to Remember 1998. Plus, there were probably many other WWF wrestlers on drugs at the time - Vince didn't seem to give a shit when controversy was good and the money was rolling in.
Has Russo ever mentioned it?
