Jake The Snake Roberts was one of the top WWE superstars of all-time. His ability to work a crowd and tell a story is legendary. But, Roberts battled drug and alcohol addiction for years. Diamond Dallas Page, who was mentored by Roberts early in his wrestling career, was a master of the squared circle and three-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion
Both have taken different paths in life. After all these years fate has brought them together one more time, not to win a belt or headline a Pay Per View, but to save Roberts' life.
After watching the documentary, "Resurrection of Jake The Snake", it gave me a better of understanding of the human spirit, not just from the standpoint of helping people changes their lives, but how sport; the art of wrestling and the business can build a bond that can never be broken.
The GM’s Perspective: For the fans out there unfamiliar with your background, how did you get involved in the lives of these two wrestling legends.
Steve Yu: I was kind of lucky to have access. Basically, I was working with Dallas for approximately eight or nine years with inspirational projects, videos, and helping him with DDP Yoga. This was something that came up about three years ago when Dallas mentioned that he talked to Jake. I thought it would be an interesting opportunity to help Jake and also tell a real positive story.
