In the 'so...what does he do now?' department I can give you this little bit of info.

Jake Roberts was booked for a Dutch wrestling show.
The FCW had their event of the year and had booked Champion Steve Taurus (who recently defeated Doug Williams in a great match) to face challenger Jake The Snake.

Apparently, Jake lives in England now, and was scheduled to arrive at the airport but he never showed. Turned out that his visum to be in England had expired and they shipped him off to the USA!!

FCW offered a refund but hardly anybody took them up on it as they delivered a good show.

The booze and drugs that they had gotten for Jake were distributed amonst the crowd too (Ok..that was a joke!)

Look at the bright side. By not working, Jake avoided causing another Heroes of Wrestling Debacle.

I wonder if Jake will no-show his wrestling school as well.

BTW, I heard that the news story was wrong and it wasn't a VISA that caused the no-show, but it was actually too much TEQUIZA.

Some people in this thread have clearly not seen "Beyond the Mat." You need to watch "Beyond the Mat."

Or do the Ultimate Torture and watch the main event of Heroes of Wrestling, where Jake takes wrestling to depths that the Ed Ferrera/Madusa feud did not reach.

Jake Roberts has no-showed like 3/4 of his bookings during the past 5 years of his eternal indy life..

The lesson here is that if you see him advertised to be on a show he'll probably no show.

Time to flame the lame
Time to flame the lame

It's all about the game,
and how you play it
I hunger for control,
That why I'm with Stephanie
It's all about the lame,
and Vince has gotta pay me
I am the lame
You don't want to like me
I want control
I used to do Joanie
I am Kev's bitch
But people still hate me
I am the lame
and Zenk is going to flame me

I just had a bad, bad, bad, bad thought.

Imagine in several months if ratings have not picked up and Vince has exhausted his supply of returners. Goldberg is hired, Steiner is brought in, Sting, Vampiro....you name 'em and it didn't help.

His last ditch effort...

Good ol' JR - "What the hell? By gawd that's...that's JAKE ROBERTS' MUSIC! GOOD GAWD ALMIGHTY THE SNAKE HAS RETURNED!"

And Jake stumbles to the ring, wearing Viscera's ring attire and carrying a piss bucket.

DON'T BELIEVE IT!

This is always a risk involved when attending any independent show. Even "reliable" professional workers may no-show events due to any variety of problems (notably not getting paid advance monies or travel expenses).

When you throw down your $10 to see King Kong Bundy, the best you could end up with is some guy who drives a forklift at UPS bumping like crazy, but that's what makes indy shows great. It's kind of like sports entertainment russian roulette (and you may even end up on a bus to Port Authority with the Road Dogg).

I'm almost half-expecting them to resort to such low depths that they bring in guys like Jake Roberts, Honky Tonk Man, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Earthquake, and Koko B. Ware to form a stable.

That stable would be perfect if they also brought in The Yeti and La Parka.

Didn't HTM claim to have been asked to appear at Smackdown a couple of weeks ago?

IIRC from reading Meltzer: Honky was asked to be at last week's wedding because he once managed Billy. He turned them down because he had a prior commitment (taking his son to a wrestling tournament), but offered to come back as a wrestler. The fed said "Thanks but no thanks." The same thing happened with the Road Dogg, I believe, although Dogg gave them such a hostile response when they asked him to be at the wedding that it didn't get to the comeback-offer phase.

What about Earthquake coming in to apologize to Jake for squashing Damien...claiming that he really loved snakes, but the "higher (vkm) power" told him to do it?

I know I'm getting my facts a little screwed, but such thought is how WWE storylines seem to go.

I think I'm mostly here to agree with Big Bad. Personally, I continue to be perfectly happy with Kurt's tweener status.
