Jake The Snake Roberts is about to have what I consider to be his sixth-greatest career moment.
On the weekend of WrestleMania 30 in New Orleans, he'll be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. This moment is extremely deserved and highly anticipated.
Roberts' career has been perhaps the most controversial of anyone in professional wrestling with the level of talent he possesses combined with the demons he's had to fight in the name of drug and alcohol addictions.
Over the past two years, the legendary wrestler began making headlines for positive reasons again as he committed to DDP Yoga and a new lifestyle which has him looking better than he has in over 20 years.
I've always considered him to be one of my top three favorite wrestlers of all time. I've always been captivated by his promos and the way he can play his character. He was in the main event of the first live wrestling event I ever went to.
I got one of the greatest thrills in my life when I was managing one of my good friends on a big independent wrestling show in Georgia that Roberts was also appearing at. The advice and conversation was tremendous.
In honor of his upcoming induction into the Hall of Fame, I've listed what I think to be his five greatest career moments in the order they occurred.
