We mentioned a while ago on Twitter that Jake “The Snake” Roberts was living in Atlanta with former WWE Superstar “Diamond” Dallas Paige, cleaning himself up with the fitness guru’s DDPYoga. Roberts, popular in the 80s and credited with innovating the DDT, has been on the fast track to a healthier future after his career and life spiraled downward into a wreck of hard living and drug addiction.
DDPYoga’s paying off though, as the wrestler showed off his before and now pictures on his website, www.jakethesnakeroberts.com
A pretty impressive change! Roberts hasn’t been looking that good since the 90s (hell, he may look better now than he did then).
Roberts is obviously nowhere near ring ready, but the fans are clearly ready for it. On January 24th, Roberts started an IndieGoGo campaign to raise $9000 for shoulder surgery to repair an old injury from one too many bumps in the ring. Twelve hours later, Roberts had already raised $7000 of the money. As of right now, the funding sits at $14,378, $5000 more than originally asked for.
Roberts is a classic wrestler who could teach a lot to today’s generation, and an old favorite of The Raw Reactor’s. We’re really rooting for the guy! If you want to donate more to help with the shoulder surgery, the IndieGoGo drive will continue until February 23 over at http://www.indiegogo.com/jakethesnake. Or you can tweet Jake some supportive words over at http://twitter.com/JakeSnakeDDT.
