Former wrestler Jake Roberts discussing a relapse is tough to watch
Jake Roberts, famous for his time as Jake “The Snake” Roberts in WWE, has struggled with drug and alcohol addiction for decades. With the help of fellow former wrestler Dallas Page, he got himself cleaned up. Then he had a relapse.
Page and Roberts decided it would be a good idea to be honest about the situation and cover it on video. It’s a tough but interesting look at a part of addiction many of us never come across.
Roberts was a cautionary tale for years, frequently embarrassing himself at wrestling shows due to performing while intoxicated.
Here’s hoping the relapse was the wake-up call he needed to stay on the straight and narrow moving forward.
