Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Finally watched the Jake 'The Snake' Roberts - Pick Your Poison DVD yestaerday, really compelling doc, learnt
alot about Roberts, always a fave of mine as a kid, when i watched him back in the day i obviously had no idea
of some of the shit he went/was/possibly still is going through,
He was such a legend in promos and on the mic, bloddy brilliant, loved his alliance with The Undertaker (was interesting
to hear Jake talk about their WM match and how it could have not hapened), also his fued with the Ultimate Warrior -
with that fued Jake talked about the blowoff match at Summerslam and it never happebed as the Warrior demanding money shit, but
forgive my memoey but was that Summerslam? (i thought Warrior did that at SS92)
Also, people talk about The Oustiders/NWO and how they entered WCW, but when Jake entered was the same,
only before any of the NWO shit happened, when Jake left WWF, came through the crowd at WCW, dressed in normal clothes,
leather jacket and all, and straight attacked Sting - marvellous, everyone too of course knew who Roberts was.
Long post for me lol but i always love revisiting the wrestling from when i was a kid, also reminded me of his fued
with Savage, the snake bit, the attack at Savage/Elizabeth's reception (i think) and when The Undertaker 'turned' on
Jake to help Savage.
And the Road Warrior? That was the last we ever saw of him. He lives now... only in my memories.
