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 who inspired his wrestling psychology.

Roberts said, “Yeah I think Eddie Graham, Dusty Rhodes, Buck Robley. Those guys helped me a lot.”

On Eddie Graham:

“He was just unbelievably sharp, man. He could come up with a finish that would just blow your mind. He could just put things together that just clicked. And I know getting a finish from him — sometimes the finishes were four or five minutes long. Damn near your whole match. But if you followed them, you would have a helluva match, with plenty of ups and downs. It’s just incredible.”

On where he kept his blade:

“On my wrist… It’s too damn much disease in your mouth, man. Think about it… no telling where that tongue’s been.”

On Kamala:

“Oh, he was a sweetheart, man. He really was. Thank God, because he was a big man. He was a natural 325-pound man. Yeah, he was [a big boy]. But just a great heart, kind-hearted. Never got in trouble, a good performer. He had it all man.”
