— TheSportsInterview.com features an interview with Jake “The Snake” Roberts. After the death of Chris Benoit, World Wrestling Entertainment set up a rehab program for current and former employees and Roberts was one of the first to take them up on it. Regarding his trip to rehab, Roberts said, “Well, it’s been wonderful. First off I want to say, thanks to the WWE I have a new lease on life. I feel like I’ve truly exercising the demons I carried for so many reasons. Without the help of Vince McMahon and company I wouldn’t have had it. It’s been very expensive. It’s been very intense. It’s been a whole lot of damn hard work. Truth be known the first time I went to rehab and the second time I went to try to save a job. This time I truly went to save my life.” You can read & listen to the interview at this link.
