Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts Says All Wrestling Is The Same Today, Talks The Role Of Fans, Importance Of In-Ring Psychology

During an interview with Sports Illustrated, WWE Hall Of Famer, Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts spoke about today’s wrestling and the psychology of moves.

Roberts on today’s wrestling being similar:

“That’s what I don’t get about the young talent today,” Roberts continued. “So many matches are the same. Don’t they get bored? It’s ridiculous what they waste, and they don’t even know they’re wasting it. I blame that on the new way of wrestling; if you come up now, you can be in the main event within a year. In my day, you had to learn. We had the territories that forced us to constantly grow and change.”

The role of the fans:

“Without the fans, you have no wrestling,” he said. “Without the fans, I’d have had no life. The fans have given me more than I can ever give them. They showed me that all my years of sacrificing meant something, and I do appreciate it.”

Importance of psychology:

“I had six moves,” Roberts said. “I knew when to do them and I did them absolutely perfectly, and people believed them. Teaching this class, I’m going to make people think differently. The truth is in what you’ve done and where you’ve been, and there are not many people who have done more than I have.”
