Jake Roberts not buying TNA
Very few people are taking Jake Roberts seriously when he talks about purchasing TNA, as many feel that the venture would be simply overwhelming for the WWE legend.
Jake Roberts talks about traveling with Undertaker
"He came to me and he says, 'I hear you know all the great strip joints,' I said, 'yes, I do, worldwide,' he says, 'I'll travel with you'. so, he tried to hang with me, and it's a chemical world, so I was cheating. After about three or four weeks, we went to TV and Vince looked at him and said, 'Mark, I don't think you need the makeup today, you look like hell. Jake is killing you and a few days later, he was in the hospital with alcohol poisoning. Finally, I had to smarten him up and tell him how I was doing it, and we then became very, very good friends. I have all the respect in the world for Mark. He has earned everything that he has gotten. He is a unique character, I love the fact that he upholds kayfabe, just a great guy, and of course he was there for the stripper times with me, and we did it well."
Jake Roberts thinks he can beat Vince McMahon
"I guarantee you if I get the opportunity (to own TNA), in a matter of six months I'll be pissing Vince McMahon off. My numbers will beat his, I guarantee you that."
