During a recent episode of the ‘Going Ringside’ podcast, WWF Legend Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts spoke about his life and his demons, and admitted that his ex-wife Cheryl did the right thing by getting a divorce from him.

Here’s what Jake had to say:

”Sobriety is a good thing. Back in the day I was lost and she had to do the right thing which is kick my a$$ out.

She had kids to take care of and she didn’t want to do that.

Now, 24 years later I finally get my stuff right.

We’re back together.”

Jake and Cheryl Roberts were married from 1984 until their official divorce in 2000.

The couple has 4 children together, but they were still separated because of Jake’s severe addiction issues (alcohol & drugs), that were well documented in the famous 1999 documentary ‘Beyond The Mat’.

Around March 2023 – so 24 years after they broke up and 23 years after their divorce – the two got back together and seem to be happier than ever before.

Jake Roberts wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation from 1986 until 1992, then went to Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling for a few months in 1992, but eventually returned to the WWF for another run from 1996 until 1997.

He’s now working as a manager for Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling since 2019 and is also working backstage to teach a lot of the AEW wrestlers how to cut promos and how to establish their characters.

A few weeks ago, Jake Roberts revealed on the Wrestling Perspective podcast, that he will try to talk Cheryl into marrying him a second time.

Here’s what he said:

“I’m trying to talk that woman into marrying me again. I think she’s gonna do it. I mean, that’s an amazing story.

24 Years we were separated. You know, divorced for 24 years. Now we’re hooking back up and it’s just a great story and a great life.

I got a second chance to smell the roses and I’m taking advantage of it. I really am.”
