Jake "The Snake" Roberts

I drew this for my friend Brad. And for Jake "The Snake" Roberts, wherever he is right now.

I think the most amazing thing about him wasn't that he brought a snake to the ring to terrorize his opponents, but that he did so while remaining predominantly a hero. It just goes to show you where wrestling was at in the 80's and early 90's during the height of Roberts' career. Even if you brought a live snake to the ring and used it as a weapon against another wrestler, you were still probably more noble than your opponent (especially if he happened to be foreign). Ahh, those were the days.
