• Hall of Famer Reveals Why He Originally Turned Down An Offer From WWF

During a recent appearance on Prime Time with Sean Mooney podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts talked about jokes being made on him in the locker room because of his father (Grizzly Smith), what he feels about his wrestling career, and his transition from NWA to WWF.

Below are the highlights:

On jokes being made on him in the locker room because of his father (Grizzly Smith):

“It was ultimately about anger. I was upset with my father. For me, to be in a locker room where there are crude jokes being made, but are being thrown at me because of my father. That blistered me. It made me feel so empty inside, and so full of shame. Shame is such a dangerous thing to deal with. I had a tough time in the locker room because sometimes wrestlers have this hard-edge to them. There were a lot of things being said and done, and as I look back I wondered how I was able to overcome all of that.”

On what he feels about his wrestling career:

“The way I was able to was because of the wrestling. It would consume my mind, heart and soul, it was 24/7 wrestling. I couldn’t trust anything else in life to be fair, because I never knew what was going to come to me next. Just to be able to focus on wrestling and have a great career, sometimes I think about how I could have accomplished so much more.

Maybe I could have, but I feel that I did a hell of a lot. I had a pretty good career; rang some bells, and all of that. I am just so grateful for what I did do, and so grateful to of found the right woman to have children with and that my children do not have alcohol of drug issues. I am so grateful for that. My oldest daughter heads the largest rehab in the world.”

On his transition from NWA to WWF:

“I gave my notice to Mid-South, and they accepted it. Vince McMahon had tried to hire me before when I was in Georgia Championship Wrestling. I wanted to stay true to the NWA, so I didn’t go. Few years later I gave my notice after being screwed over again by Bill Watts. I picked up the phone and called New York and asked to speak with Vince McMahon.

They said that Vince McMahon wasn’t going to be around for a few more weeks, and I was thinking, ‘Oh my God, I just gave my notice, so what am I going to do?’ I let my wife know that I couldn’t get a hold of him, and of course she didn’t want to hear that. As soon as I was going to head to the gym she said that Vince McMahon was on the phone, which I didn’t believe her.

I went to the phone and he had told me to get on the airplane and fly up there, which was what I did. I sat down with him and we had a decent conversation, and that was that.”

Below is what WWF Veteran Torrie Wilson recently posted on her Instagram account:

“Hi. My name is Torrie.

I’m 42 & feel like I’m 25. Maturity level probably lower.? You can call me old if you want to, but chances are pretty high I can still kick your a$$ & possibly even turn more heads in a bikini so it’s all good.?

I’m also that annoying person that is going to keep reminding you that if you don’t feel as confident as I do, you CAN. I might even help you get there if you’re nice.?

I won’t lie & say it’s easy, but it’s also not nearly as hard as you may think. You probably owe it to yourself don’t ya?

If I can motivate you to get your booty to the gym & maybe skip those donuts later by a little post, you can bet I’m gonna do so cuz that’s how much I love you & want you feelin your bada$$ self.

Life is just so much better with confidence & strength.”
