Re: Why did Taker turned on Jake Roberts?
Taker was getting huge pops at that point. Made sense to turn him face. IIRC there was no build up really. Go back to a few months earlier when Taker won the title from Hogan at Survivor Series. Huge pop when he got the three count. That character was over as fuck. I was at a house show in 1991 and the main event was Warrior/Taker in a bodybag match and the crowd was basically 50-50. Warrior won (weird) and ran out of the ring and the bodybag sat up. Crowd popped stupid hard and Warrior was as hot as just about anyone ever in the business at that time.
