Jake Roberts Credits Himself For Making Undertaker & Stone Cold Steve Austin WWE

A WWE Hall of Famer has credited himself for making Undertaker and Stone Cold Steve Austin.

Jake Roberts has been praised for being an influential star in the business and helping a lot of younger talent in his career.

Speaking on the DDP Snake Pit podcast, Jake Roberts talked about working with Undertaker and the other stars he felt like he made or helped through his time in wrestling.

He said:

“Without me, there is no Undertaker. Without me, there is no Steve Austin. I even helped Shawn Michaels as much as I could. Shawn spent some time in my car. I’m the one that came up with the ‘Ladies and gentlemen, we have an urgent message. Shawn has left the building’, which is so cheap, so f***ing bulls**t. You know? But anyway, the Road Warriors would have never happened without me because they were under my tutelage for quite a while. Yeah, they would have made it eventually but they wouldn’t know what I’ve taught him, and I enjoy teaching. I love to create new characters. Oh my god. I had one character I wanted to do for Jim Neidhart and the deal was going to be he’s called ‘The Mole’, and what happens is he refuses to come out to the ring till they turn the lights off, because it’s too bright. It’s much too bright. I can’t see. It’s too bright. Turn the lights off and I’ll come out. Of course, you turn the lights off, he comes out and whacks the f***ing guy. The lights come back on and he’s beating the s**t out of the guy. He’s the Mole.”

Jake The Snake Roberts worked with Undertaker ahead of WrestleMania 8, while Stone Cold Steve Austin defeated Roberts to win the 1996 King of the Ring tournament.

Roberts has worked with All Elite Wrestling since early 2020, but he hasn’t been seen on television since April.
