During the latest edition of his weekly ‘The Snake Pit’ podcast, WWF Legend Jake Roberts was asked about the very best in-ring worker from the 1980s, when Jake was in his prime.

Here’s what Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts replied:

“Ronnie Garvin. Oh, he gets it. He truly gets it. He understands the ins and outs of the duck’s a$$, man. He’s got it all. And he’s so believable. And being in the ring with him, we never had to talk about anything.

We just went out there and did s**t. And we had a blast doing it, and we beat the crap out of each other. I often tell the story about beating up Ronnie and watching him sell. And I can always tell when he’s getting ready to make his comeback because his nipples would get hard. That was the truth.

Yeah man, I looked down at him and the nipples weren’t hard, so I kicked him some more. So I’d kick him three or four more times. Punch him, turn around and look. ‘Nope, not yet.’ Bang, bang, bang. And then all of a sudden, I turn around and I see him getting hard, and he gets the chill bumps because he gets chill bumps too.

I just knew right then, brother, all hell is fixing to break loose. And he would get up and stomp the s**t out of me.”

Jake Roberts is a wrestling legend who has graced the ring for many, many years. Throughout his illustrious career, he made his mark in several major promotions, 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 has been captivating audiences as a manager for Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling, adding a new dimension to his storied journey in professional wrestling.
