Jake Roberts deserves to be in the WWE Hall of Fame for his mic skills alone.
When so many wrestlers shouted angrily into the camera to get their point across, Roberts mastered the art of the quiet, menacing promo. To listen to a Jake Roberts interview is to travel to a dark place.
Roberts is a poet and an actor, a hypnotist drawing the audience in with his rough, hushed voice.
While there will never be another Jake Roberts, aspiring wrestlers and ring veterans alike should pour over these skillful promos and take plenty of notes.
