WWE Hall of Famer and All Elite Wrestling Star Jake “The Snake” Roberts recently appeared on the “DDP Snake Pit” podcast to talk about topics such as The Montreal Screwjob at the 1997 WWE Survivor Series Event and how fellow WWE Hall of Famer Bret “The Hitman” Hart got what he deserved because he did not have the right to not drop the title as it was just given to him.
Jake Roberts said:
“I don’t agree with that [leaving as Champion] at all. You know, there’s been so many guys who get away with it too. Holding up promoters because they don’t want to lose the title in a certain area. Maybe Canada, has that ever happened? Oh wait, it did. Shawn and Bret. He didn’t want to drop it in Canada, so they [Vince McMahon and others] screwed him.”
“You didn’t get screwed a**hole! You got what you deserved. How do you have the right, not to drop that title? That title, that was given to you. You did not beat up anybody to get that.”
“The reason you have that title is because some other schmuck was a good enough guy to lose to you [The Undertaker at Summerslam 1997.] So you not dropping that title tells me you don’t give a flying f*ck about anybody else but yourself, and that’s very selfish. It’s wrong and if you are contemplating doing it, that’s for you.”
