Jake “The Snake” Roberts Wants to Buy TNA with Help from Fans

Posted by DailyWrestlingNews.com on Saturday, November 2nd, 2013


- Jake “The Snake” Roberts, who moved out of Diamond Dallas Page’s Accountability Crib and is now living with his lawyer, told BlankManINC.com that he wants to use crowd-funding site Indiegogo so fans can help him purchase TNA.

He was asked about TNA going up for sale. Here’s his response:

“God, it needs to. I mean, I watched for 10, 12, 15 years, however long it’s been out there and they suck. I guarantee you if I get the opportunity, in a matter of six months I’ll be pissing Vince McMahon off. My numbers will beat his, I guarantee you that.”

Jake, who says he hasn’t heard from WWE in regards to a Royal Rumble return, says he would rather own TNA so he can change the world and get wrestling back to what it should be – wrestling, not sports entertainment.

    Jake how ya gonna beat Vinny Mack and Wrestle Mania ?

  • allan

    Omg that. Would be awesome cause he’s sober and focused now unless he left the crib cause he’s drinking again which he sounds like he is there saying he could kill wwes numbers in 6 months. .. And 2001-2007 of TNA were awesome.

  • Bobby Seagle

    Asking fans to help him buy TNA? I mean it’s great what the fans did for Hall, Roberts, and DDP Yoga raising funds for them, but asking donations to purchase TNA what the hell? Isn’t that asking for a bit too much? Sorry but if you want to buy TNA use your own money to do so just be thankful the fans gave you a second life.

      Hell we gave him a wrestling career..as fans we invested in his character and bought tickets that allowed him to be one of the biggest stars in the 80′s and 90′s. Roberts earned 7 figures in his lifetime and he wants the fans to help him buy TNA!!? It’s not our fault he blew most of his money away..

      • Bobby Seagle

        I agree well said. It’s greedy, disrespectful, and arrogant to ask donations from fans to buy a company. So I guess he’s expecting us to donate millions upon millions to purchase TNA..out of our own pockets when some of us bust our assess just to put food on the table and to pay the bills. Like you said, where is all the money he made in WWE and WCW? Spent it on drugs and booze perhaps?

  • Eyam Ova-Urazis

    He’s either high or brain damaged.

  • Ralph Ramos

    He’s gonna piss Vincie off in 6 months. Aha. In 12 months, he’ll be going head to head with Vincie in the rating. In 18……..NEVER!!!!!!!! What would happen is Jake The Snake will purchase the company (With the fans funding) and sell it to Vincie at a nice discount in 6 months.

  • SmellyAssCheeks

    If I help Jake Roberts buy TNA, I better have part ownership of the company…

  • Timothy Graham

    A classic Jake promo. All that’s missing is, “Trust me”.
