To give you an idea of just how shady the professional wrestling business used to be, Randy Savage was said to have been paranoid about doing the segment where Jake Roberts ties him up and lets the snake bite him in the arm. The idea was created by Vince McMahon. Savage had issues trusting McMahon, so he had Roberts get the snake to bite himself backstage to make sure that it wasn't poisonous. He didn't want to find out on camera.

Roberts vented on the show and stated that a heel using a sledgehammer as a weapon is a bad idea. The WWE legend states that doing so shows a lack of ring psychology, something that HHH takes a lot of pride in having.
