Jake Roberts compared MJF to a wrestling star

Jake “The Snake” Roberts is a man who has given a lot for the wrestling world. Speaking to DDP, Snake Pit spoke about working with the MJF. “I did an interview on his set,” Roberts said, as quoted by wrestlinginc.

“He showed me appreciation and respect when asked me afterward, ‘Was that what you wanted?’ See, he’s smart. If you ask people what they want and ‘Did you get your point across?’, chances are the next time I’m on his set, I’m going to give it a little bit more, you know what I’m saying? He greased my palms, man.

He made me feel good. That’s smart”.

Roddy Piper

The MJF is the person they compared to Roddy Piper, which Roberts agrees with. Absolutely,” he said. “Because he rants on you, man. He gets in your face. He throws sh*t at you quick and fast”.

“Back in the day, we would work for WWF,” Roberts recalled. “On a TV day, the stars got 50 bucks for wrestling three times. And we paid for our own hotel and our own rental cars. So we lost money. But they would give us that 50 bucks at the beginning of the night … Piper would take that 50 bucks and go to his first match and slide it to that guy, who’s making $500, because the guys that got beat up made $500.

“What did that 50 bucks mean to Piper? Nothing. What did it mean to that guy? ‘Jesus Christ, this superstar gave me the only 50 bucks he’s making for the day. He gave it to me and told me to go out and buy some beer and have a good time.’ So what does that guy go out and do for you? He’ll fly!

Now, here’s the one I learned from Piper. He tells the guy, ‘Whatever you do, don’t tell anybody else I gave you that $50. Cause I don’t have any more cash on me.’ Do you think that guy’s going to tell anybody? Of course he is!

But they’re going to go out and fly too now, because they know next time, ‘Maybe Piper will give me that $50.' ”
