• “It was tremendously hard to work that gimmick” – WWF Legend On The Undertaker’s Early Years
During a recent episode of his weekly ‘DDP Snakepit’ podcast, WWF Legend Jake The Snake Roberts explained how wrestlers traveling together, driving in the same car from one show to the next, is really something that is missing in modern day professional wrestling.
Here’s what the experienced veteran wrestler said:
“When you’re in the car for say 4 hours, the smart thing to do is to talk about your match. Now you’ve got three other guys here giving their opinions, and you pick things out of what they’re saying, ‘Oh yeah, that would work there, oh that could make that better’, so you’re getting four minds instead of one.
Occasionally, there’d be an argument, and on occasion some guys got outside the car and fought over what they thought.
Percy (Paul Bearer) at times would say, ‘Jake, what do you think about this’.
He wasn’t asking for himself, he was asking for Mark (The Undertaker), which kept Mark from feeling like a mark, because he was such a colossal sized guy anyway.
He always took his gimmick seriously and I give him that, because it was tremendously hard to work that gimmick, you’d think it’d be easy but it wasn’t, to do it right.”
Jake Roberts wrestled for many years and worked for several major promotions during his long, illustrious career, including the World Wrestling Federation (1986-1992 & 1996-1997), Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (1992) and Extreme Championship Wrestling (1997 & 1998).
Since 2019, he’s working as a manager for Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling.
