Jake Roberts Wiki Biography

Aurelian Smith Jr. was born on the 30th May 1955 in Gainesville, Texas USA, and is a semi-retired professional wrestler, best known to the world as Jake Roberts who competed in several wrestling promotions, including World Wrestling Federation (now WWE), World Championship Wrestling, and Extreme Championship Wrestling, among others.

Have you ever wondered how rich Jake Roberts is, as of early 2017? According to authoritative sources, it has been estimated that Roberts’ net worth is as high as $500,000, earned through his successful career in the sports business of wrestling.

Jake is the son of now deceased wrestler Grizzly Smith; He has a half-sister and half-brother from his father’s second marriage – according to interviews, he was abused by his stepmother. Although he didn’t speak with his father, he followed in his footsteps, and before he turned 20 he started as a referee and wrestler, building his way up in Mid-South Wrestling, Georgia Championship Wrestling and Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling. He even fought in the rings in Canada in order to develop his character, dveloping a feud with wrestler Junkyard Dog. In 1983Jake became a part of the Legion of Doom, and started a feud with Ron Garvin for the NWA World Television Championship, and the next year moved to World Class Championship Wrestling, and together with Gino Hernandez and “Gentleman” Chris Adams, won the WCCW television title and 6-Man Tag Team title.

His next career move was joining the World Wrestling Federation in 1986, and he stayed there for the next four years. Just a month into WWF, he made his pay-per-view debut in a fight against George Wells at WreslteMania 2. Jake came out victorious from the fight, demonstrating his strength by making foam come out from Wells’ mouth once he wrapped his snake around Wells’ head. In his two years on WWF, Jake left a big mark since, apart from fighting, he was also the host of the show “The Snake Pit”. His popularity was growing quickly which earned him new bouts, new wins and more money towards his net worth.

After WWF, he joined World Championship Wrestling in 1992, but that didn’t last long since he became one of the many wrestlers on the Independent circuit in 1993, fighting mostly for the Asistencia Sesoria y Administacion, a Mexican wrestling promotion, and also showed his wrestling skills in Smoky Mountain Wrestling. He then took a break from wrestling until 1996 when he returned to WWF, however, it was quite short, since the following year he was fired and several months later joined the Extreme Championship Wrestling. Nevertheless, that was also short lived, since in 1999 he left the ECW to fight in the pay-per-view event Heroes of Wrestling. Unfotunately, his drug and alcohol problems kicked in, and he lost the fight as soon as it started.

Since then he has fought in numerous independent promotions, and returned to WWE in 2005 to make a few appearances, including facing Randy Orton, and since then has stayed in wrestling, but hasn’t fought again, although he was announced for the 2014 Royal Rumble.

As a result of his success in the wrestling world, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2014. He became known for the snake he would bring with him in the ring, including a Burmese Python and Reticulated Python, which had names such as Damien and Lucifer.

Regarding his personal life, Jake has had quite an interesting time. He has been married three times and, and has eight children including four with his second wife Cheryl Hagood. Their marriage lasted from 1984 until 2000. His first wife was Karen Rauschuber; they married in 1975, however there is no information when their marriage ended. His third wife was Judy Lynn; the couple was married from 2006 until 2011.

Jake has had several health problems, including drug and alcohol addiction, muscular cancer, obesity and double pneumonia, from all of which he has apparently managed to recover.

Jake Roberts Quotes

  • I’m not happy about where I’ve been, but I’m truly excited about where I’m going.
  • [describing how he handled dealing with his neck and back injury from the guitar shot he took on The Snake Pit from The Honky Tonk Man] I took so many downers, muscle relaxers, and painkillers to kill the pain, that I had to have something to get me up for the show.

Jake Roberts Important Facts

  • WWE Hall of Famer.
  • As of January 2007 he was a professional Kingfisher in Gainesville, FL.
  • Wound up on a painkiller addiction due to a legitimate neck and back injury when Wayne Farris (aka “The Honky Tonk Man”) hit him with an un-gimmicked guitar on his interview show “The Snake Pit”. Because Roberts couldn’t take the time off immediately to get it repaired, he spent about 18 months taking a load of painkillers and muscle relaxers to get to sleep, then taking something else after he woke up to get him ready for a match.
  • His second wife, Cheryl, became part of a storyline with Rick Rude when she accompanied him on a tour for moral support when he was recovering from alcoholism.
  • He first wanted to use a real snake when he was with Mid-South Wrestling, and promoter Vince McMahon thought it was a good idea and gave him the go-ahead. However, he was a bit hesitant at first–he eventually learned how to handle snakes and soon had little to no problem with them.
  • Former Smoky Mountain Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion.
  • Although he was billed as being from Stone Mountain, Georgia, he was actually born and grew up in Texas.
  • His signature move, the DDT, was invented by accident. Once during a match in his National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) days, Roberts had his opponent, “The Grappler”, in a front face-lock, but was tripped. Roberts’ opponent fell on his head, actually knocking him out.
  • In mid-1981 he and Jay Youngblood teamed up to capture the NWA Mid-Atlantic Tag Team titles.
  • Accompanied by Alice Cooper during his match with Wayne Farris at WrestleMania III (1987). It didn’t help him–he lost the match.
  • Entered the WWF as a heel wrestler and began a brief feud with Hulk Hogan, but the angle was dropped when Roberts started receiving cheers from the crowd.
  • Son of wrestler ‘Grizzly’ Smith.
  • Did an about-face and began hosting a weekly interview segment called “The Snake Pit”. This is where many of his feuds began.
  • Credited with training Diamond Dallas Page and Raven.
  • His King Cobra actually bit the “Macho Man” Randy Savage. The snake had been de-venomised, though.
  • He owns his own wrestling promotion in the UK, called Real Stars of Wrestling. This was started in November 2002.
  • Became NWA (UK) Hammerlock Heavyweight Champion on 20th October 2002 in Maidstone, Kent, England by defeating “Vigilante” Johnny Moss. “Vigilante” Johnny Moss defeated him for the title the next night in Ashford, Kent, England.
  • Made a return to the WWF in 1996 as a Bible-thumping Christian. This would begin “Austin 3:16”.
  • Defeated the legendary André the Giant in WrestleMania V (1989) via count-out.
  • Was fired from the WWF in 1997 after failing to show up for work.
  • Brother of former WWF stars Sam Houston and Robin Smith.
