Jake Roberts – ‘I Used To Play With Snakes In Hotel Rooms’


On a recent edition of his “The Snake Pit” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jake Roberts discussed his interactions with snakes, why Barry Windham didn’t become a bigger star, and more.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On whether he would get accidentally bit by the snake: “No, I used to play with it in the hotel rooms when I got drunk, you know? And I put it on the bed, and there’d be two beds. And I’d stick my arm out there, and when he tried to strike me, I’d move it, you know? Every now and then, I’d be doing it. I pick up my beer and forget what I was doing, and the son of a bi**h would bite me.”

On Barry Windham: “He was just a great talent, man. He was tall, long and lanky for a long time. Back when I wrestled him, he was thin. But he could get out there and go, man. All his stuff is solid. He’s exciting, very exciting.”

On why Windham didn’t become a bigger star: “He never got the break, plain and simple. He just seemed to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, a lot of the time. And then he finally got with the Horsemen and finally found his niche.”
