​Jake Roberts Speaks Out – Vince Forgiving Him, HOF Induction


2014 WWE Hall of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts recently spoke
with Philly.com
regarding Vince McMahon, WrestleMania,
his Hall of Fame induction and more. Here are some highlights from the

Diamond Dallas Page Saving His
 “There would have been no other choice other than god
himself. Diamond Dallas saved my life. He didn’t have to, but that’s the kind of
guy he is. He’s helped so many people with his DDP Yoga. It’s just incredible
with the lives he’s changing, the lives he’s affecting. I am so honored to be
part of that. Me making my journey, Scott Hall making his journey, we opened the
doors for a lot of people out there that are struggling with all sorts of
addictions. Whether it’s food or sex or whatever it’s still an addiction and
addictions aren’t healthy.”

The Significance Of His Hall of Fame
 “There’s so much electricity in the air and so
many good thoughts going through me. Nothing can take the shine off what’s about
to happen because not only am I being inducted into the Hall of Fame, which is
something I didn’t think would ever happen because of my out-of-the-ring antics
and some of the things I said.”

Vince McMahon Forgiving Him: “People have
to remember that an alcoholic and a drug addict can be known to tell a lie or
two and I certainly did my share of it with lashing out and was pretty ugly
about it. For Vince McMahon to forgive and forget — maybe he hasn’t forgotten,
but at least he’s forgiven — and to invite me into the Hall of Fame … it’s
going to be an awesome, awesome moment.”

His New Book That Comes Out in
 “Right now, it’s 600 pages and that doesn’t even get me
to the WWE years. It’s going to be a really, really intense book. I think it
will help a lot of people understand more about addiction and more about people
that have had struggles in their lives with sexual abuse. I’m opening the doors
to my life. I’m not talking about anybody else. It’s just my own. I really look
forward to having out there and traveling around and promoting it.”
