Here is Jake Roberts speaking with Trib live. Check out the highlights:
On the last time he felt this good: "I'd say 1994, 1993 maybe. I'll tell you this right out front, man, each day it keeps coming in my mind, I will be back in the ring. I will make an impact somewhere."
On whether he would have had addiction problems in today's cleaner locker rooms: "I don't think so. I don't think I would have made it as far as I did. My problems weren't just drugs and alcohol. I had a lot of mental problems."
On talent today: "Today I see the guys out there, their clean, their sober, god bless them. I know they've cut their work schedule down quite a bit because I'll tell you the truth man, there is no way you could have made it back in the day without taking some type of drug."
On his careeer hopes: "I'd like to be involved in wrestling again. I know I can write better than anyone. I know I can do interviews better than anyone."
On his stated desire to be in the 2014 Royal Rumble: "Vince, you mind as well sign me up for the Royal Rumble because one way or the other I'm going to get in that ring."
On wanting to work for WWE again: "I don't wanna join your [Vince] kiss your ass club but I'm humble. I just want to help wrestling."
