WWE Hall of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts recently spoke with WrestlingNews.co, where he talked about a number of topics including the strangest and wildest places he has wrestled.
Roberts said, “Top of a department store in Tokyo. We were about 25 floors up, so it was pretty odd. To make it even crazier, there was only like 12 people there for a whole wrestling show. Then at the end of it, I found out that the owner of the building has requested a show for himself and family, and he paid for it, so they did it.”
“I’ve got one more. It was in a cockfighting compound. Yeah, literally, whenever you came up on this place, it was out in the sticks. When you come up on it, there was a large crow’s nest with automatic weapons in it. It was well-guarded. Cockfighting is pretty crazy shit, man. It was really weird because at intermission, they raffled off a shotgun and shells.”
