Jake the Snake Returns on Old School RAW

I’ll be honest. I actually went to bed early last night, so missed this amazing ending to the Old School RAW.

In the first part of Bump in the Road, I discussed growing up on wrestling. Jake “The Snake” Roberts was definitely one of those highlights. And it broke my heart to watch him struggle years later with alcohol and substance abuse. In many ways, he became a joke among wrestling fans much in the same way Keith Richards has become a joke for his substance abuse.

In the last year, however, Jake has fought incredibly hard to clean himself up, stay sober, and get healthy. He’s dropped over 70 pounds, largely due to DDP Yoga (something I practice myself).

See him in this clip, though? Wow. He looks so healthy and happy. It warms my heart to see him like this. Now, let’s see him as one of the 30 participants in this year’s Royal Rumble and then on to the WWE Hall of Fame!
