"Jake thinks that one day Vince will run for President, and WIN. James asks if that’s why Jake moved to England, but Jake explains that he moved over here to get away from the “sh*tty” indy scene in America, and come across for the architecture in England as he always wanted to be an architect as a child."

"How is the Wrestling School going?
"It's going good. Jake Roberts is really good at wrestling. Jake Roberts is really good at doing promo's. Jake Roberts has a mind for doing promo's, but Jake Roberts is not a good arranger of a building, or business suit stuff. I really don't do well at that part, but fortunately I ran into a couple of guys that are from the Service and they have been a great support to me, and they also support me in other things too man. They help me to do what I want to do, and not want to do. It is really good because we've built a great ring, and it was a 'hands-on' thing for me, where I am getting greasy and nasty. Also, just to make it extra tough, we built the ring upstairs and will have to carry it downstairs, just for fun. It is a 20 foot ring made out of metal with a five inch post. The Ring is very beautiful, and you would be jealous if you felt how good this ring feels. This ring is the Buckingham Palace of wrestling rings. The School itself, I have a couple of hundred kids who want it so bad. There are no qualifications, because it is not my right to choose your dream, Chris. If you come in a wheelchair, that's cool, and I will teach you everything that I know, because it is my damn job. It is my duty and honor to pass on, what I received in technique, knowledge and psychology from all the Great Ones - Graham, Malenko, Sweetan's and others. I have one kid with Spina Bifida, one with Cerebral Palsy, and I dig those kids as much as I dig anyone else. The one with Cerebral Palsey, I will say right now, has more growing talent than some of the talent the WWE has. Just have fun and that is what it's about man."
It's like a koala bear crapped a rainbow in my brain!
Not to sway this from wrestling,b ut when I saw the picture of Portis with the belt, it jusr reminded me of all that is wrong with professional sprots. I mean, come on. You scored 5 TDs, but that is not even the record.
