DDP Says Helping Jake Roberts Is Becoming a Reality Show
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 11.18.2012



- DDP appeared on the Big WrestleShark Show on the UK's Pulse FM and discussed helping Jake "The Snake" Roberts get his life in order and more. Check out the highlights:

On making a reality show out of Roberts' work: "I bought a house in Atlanta Georgia. Basically we're filming a REAL reality show, we don't set up anything, we just film during the day, Jake 'The Snake' Roberts has moved in here. Jake started with us close to four months ago, we went down to Texas and filmed Jake, we wanted to have day one, we're filming a documentary: 'The Resurrection of Jake 'The Snake' Roberts'. The tagline is, it's never too late to heal yourself, to bring your body back, to bring your mind back, when you guys talk to him next week you'll see what I'm talking about."

On Jake's progress: "Jake's down 40lbs, when we filmed him to begin with, just standing up and going to the floor to do a push up. He couldn't do it. He had to have a chair or a table to push himself up. Now he can."

On the point of Roberts training for one last run: "The whole point of the Resurrection of Jake is to go out on his terms. We say it all the time, his history is not his destiny and he knows that he messed up. He knows he dropped the ball numerous times. He knows he's a junkie and an alcoholic, so we provide here at my house that we call the 'accountability crib', you're accountable for everything! He has really come light years in a very short time, he still has a long way to go. The goal is to not have it end the way it ended, you know, on TMZ. Where he was all sh*tfaced in the ring and couldn't do anything. The guy was one of the greatest performers of all time, he wants to go out with some dignity. So we want to get him ready for either one last tour or one last match, we'll see how that works out. And hopefully he can retire with his head held high."
