Jake Roberts Reacts To WCW Angle Where Ric Flair Was Sent To Mental Hospital



On a recent edition of his “The Snake Pit” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jake Roberts elaborated on significant storylines in WCW involving Jim Duggan and Ric Flair.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On the WCW angle where Ric Flair was sent to the mental hospital: “[I thought] ‘Wow.’ They actually put that on the air? What the f**k, man? I’ve never seen anything worse. That was just f**king horrid… Are you guys forgetting we’re supposed to be wrestling? That’s the whole idea, this is a wrestling show. So let’s show wrestling. I’ve never been a fan of wasted time and God damn, that was wasted f**king time.”

On WCW making Jim Duggan clean toilets for a storyline in 1999 where they tried to have him denounce the USA for Canada: “Some sick f**kers out there man that just want to bring you down, you know? Let’s think about that for a moment. That does nothing to promote wrestling, it does nothing to promote Jim Duggan. All you’re doing is laughing at him. He’s cleaning the s**tter. What the f**k, man? What does that have to do with anything?”

“They wound up, you know, making him go to Canada, denounced the USA. That’s just ignorance. You’re trying to destroy a character and guess what? It didn’t f**king work, because the people didn’t buy it. That’s just desperate people, doing desperate — they were trying to make him quit. That’s what they were trying to do. He had a nice contract, and they were trying to make him quit. Didn’t work.”
