Jake “The Snake” Roberts recently took to “The Ten Count” podcast to discuss a variety of topics, including some of the strangest places he’s wrestled over the course of his career.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On the strangest place he’s wrestled: “Top of a department store in Tokyo. We were about 25 floors up, so it was pretty odd. To make it even crazier, there was only like 12 people there for a whole wrestling show. Then at the end of it, I found out that the owner of the building has requested a show for himself and family, and he paid for it, so they did it.”
On his other pick for the strangest place he’s wrestled: “I’ve got one more. It was in a cockfighting compound. Yeah, literally, whenever you came up on this place, it was out in the sticks. When you come up on it, there was a large crow’s nest with automatic weapons in it. It was well-guarded. Cockfighting is pretty crazy sh*t, man. It was really weird because at intermission, they raffled off a shotgun and shells.”
