Jake Roberts Calls Vince McMahon A “Grudge-Holding Son Of A B*tch”


WWE Hall of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts, reflecting on his reincarnation as a spiritual babyface persona within WWE in 1996, attributed it to a grudge harbored by Vince McMahon.

During a recent episode of his “The Snake Pit” podcast, Roberts delved into the era and expressed his initial aversion towards the character upon his return, which he believes was a direct consequence of McMahon’s animosity towards him following his departure. Roberts said,


“I didn’t like it. It was Vince taking a shot. When you leave Vince McMahon and he’s not the one firing you and getting rid of you, he doesn’t like it. He holds a grudge. He’s a grudge-holding son of a b**ch and he’ll take his time to get ya’ too. He’ll start doing little things and then he’ll graduate to maybe Jerry Lawler throwing whiskey in my face and making a joke out of that s**t. You know, they don’t make jokes out of that s**t anymore. It should have never been done. Jerry Lawler himself speaks up about that. And it was horrible to be asked to do it, and especially with where I was coming from. I mean, you’re going to persecute me for being a Christian? Really? Wow, dude,” said Jake Roberts.
