• “I heard you know where all the good strip joints are?” – The Undertaker To WWF Legend
During the latest episode of his weekly ‘DDP Snake Pit’ podcast, Old School WWF Legend Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts revealed that The Undertaker wanted to ride with him in a car from town to town (to House Shows & TV-tapings) around the time when The Deadman joined the World Wrestling Federation, which was in November 1990.
Here’s what Roberts said:
“You know, he first came to me when he first got there and he says, ‘Jake, I’ll be riding with you.’ I’m like, ‘Well, that’s kind of bold. You going to go setting up rides for me now?’
He goes, ‘No, I want to travel with you.’ I’m like, ‘Okay, so you want to get underneath the learning tree. I appreciate you being bold enough to come and ask me straight out. Hey man, I’ll be glad to share anything I know.’
He says, ‘That’s great too, but I heard you know where all the good strip joints are.’ I said, ‘Worldwide.’ He said, ‘Well, I’m going to hang with you.’ I said, ‘Dude, let’s be honest, you played basketball, didn’t you?’
He said, ‘Yeah.’ I said, ‘You’d probably be better off going and dribbling somewhere in a corner than trying to hang with me because I’ll bury your dumb a$$. You can’t hang with me.’ He says, ‘It’s a challenge! I’ll meet you one-for-one.’”
In 1992, it was Jake Roberts, who became the second annual victim of The Undertaker’s famous WrestleMania Streak at WrestleMania VIII, but Jake left the WWF right after that match to join WCW a few months later.
For the first time during his WWF run, The Undertaker turned babyface at the beginning of their rivalry leading up to the big match.
