WWE Hall of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts took to an episode of his Snake Pit podcast, where he talked about a number of topics including his reaction to Bruiser Brody’s murder.
Roberts said, “It was horrifying, man. I’d known Bruiser since I got in the business. I refereed his matches, you know, So I’d known him for some time and we were friends. And just a horrible thing to happen, man. Just no excuse. I don’t give a shit. The way it was handled was bullshit. The assholes are murderers, man. That’s all I can tell you. I didn’t want to go. I got talked into going because the guys that I went for were in business against Carlos.”
Roberts also talked about the downfall of Junkyard Dog due to drug abuse.
Roberts said, “Just you can see it talking to him. He just wasn’t there anymore. You know, you try to have a conversation with him and it’s just nothing. Really sad. Really makes me sick, man. When I look back on it, I should have done something. Should have said something. Done something and tried something. But there was no reaching him at that time. You couldn’t reach him. I tried several times to reach out to him and got nothing.”
