Former WWF star Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts sings at Dodgers-Braves game
Jake “The Snake” Roberts, a former WWF star wrestler from 1980s and ‘90s, turned up at the Braves-Dodgers game on Friday night to lead the Turner Field crowd in the traditional singing of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the seventh-inning stretch.
Roberts, who has battled drug and alcohol addictions, is living in the Atlanta area with former WWF star “Diamond” Dallas Page in an effort to pull his life together as he attempts a comeback to the ring.
The man credited with the finishing move known as the DDT -- yes, after the pesticide, in which one of the wrestlers in a front forelock vaults himself backward and his opponent lands head-first into the mat -- had been sitting incognito in a hat and wig near a dugout.
When the seventh-inning stretch began, Roberts jumped on top of the dugout and started singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”
As you can see from the video above, he forgot some of the words. He told one reporter that he wasn’t too worried about it.
“What are they going to do, boo the hell out of me?” Robert asked. “It’s not like I’m Roseanne Barr.”
