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 whether he became an agent in the company.

Roberts said, “I was offered a spot as an agent, and I did it for a while man, with Vince [McMahon]. I was writing television for him, partly responsible for the Steve Austin era. And [I] certainly helped a lot of other people along their way, including Shawn Michaels. Lay out matches for guys and try to help them with their characters.”

On The Midnight Express:

“They were great. Are you kidding? Midnight Express, brother. S**t man, those guys can rock and roll, brother. They could go, man. Ask anybody who’s ever watched them. Bobby Eaton was one of the greatest ever to get in the ring.”

On Bobby Eaton:

“Bobby Eaton was so f***ing funny, man. He was easy to gross out, you know? I used to cough up the moisture and spit it up there and try to catch it. And it used to like, make him puke.”

On Eddie Graham:

“He could lay out a finish that would be 15 minutes long. I mean, but it was absolutely f***ing perfect, you know? And Eddie would lay out a finish, but he wouldn’t watch the match. He would listen to the match. And he could tell you what was going on By the sounds they were making. That’s how good he was. He was f***ing — he was Yoda.”
