It Came From YouTube: Don’t gamble with Jake “The Snake” Roberts!

5 Submitted by on Mon, 16 June 2014, 16:33

This is Jake Roberts’ infamous falling-down drunk “You’ve got 21? I’ve got 22!” promo from the 1999 Heroes Of Wrestling show (which is one of my favorite inductions ever).

At first I thought this was pretty funny because of how downright incoherent it is, but… man, it’s just really kind of sad and pathetic.

The interviewer looks pretty freaked-out with Jake hanging onto him for balance, and the snake on the floor!

I can’t say I blame the guy!

Diamond Dallas Page is an amazing, and wonderful person for being able to help Jake turn his life around from this awful low point.

The REST of the Pay-Per-View is “so bad, it’s good” though, I promise!

    I hope he can stay straight because it really sucks watching old ppv’s and counting the people actually still alive gets to be a short list. On a humorous aside (not Hugh Morrus) I love the dip of an announcer saying Jake is a man of his word, after Jake just cutting a promo saying how he was going to cheat.
    “You got St. Charles Place, well i got Park Place and Payton Place. I cheat. I took an extra chance card and got all the good community chest ones, I cheat.”

    Jake is one of my favorites of all time, but this promo is both hard to watch and somehow still funny at the same time.

    Man this is just sad, this is like an unofficial PSA on the consequences of alcoholism. The PPV, the worst wrestling one ever, is an example on how not to run a PPV

    I gather that was the abysmal Randy Rosenbloom mentioning Jimmy Snuka’s flying leap? Can we get one of his atrocious pieces of commentary?

    Thankfully DDP brought him to a better state of mind.
