Jake Roberts will be moving out of Diamond Dallas Page's accountability crib and onto a new chapter in his life.
The story of Jake Roberts is the story of humanity. Jake has always been very forthwith about his demons and his constant battle to rise above them. One great ally in this battle for Jake has been Diamond Dallas Page. The former WCW Champion really helped Jake turn his life around with DDP Yoga and was a huge part of Jake's Journey to the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2014.
Now, currently a manager in AEW, Jake Roberts will be moving out of the accountability crib and into a new home in Oklahoma.
“I’m back in the hotel again for the last time. I’m moving to Oklahoma – when I leave Florida on this trip then I’m going to Oklahoma,” Jake tells WrestlingInc. “I’ve got a place there now of my own so I can make my own rules. The really wild thing about it is that it’s one mile from the largest casino in the world [laughs]. It’s the Indian casino there – WinStar – which is the largest casino in the world. It’s fabulous and huge which doesn’t bother me because I don’t drink anymore. I don’t have any urges or anything like that so I’m not scared. I’m damn sure not gonna give my money away in gambling. People think about going to Vegas and getting rich like that, but let me tell you something, they don’t open casinos to lose money [laughs]. So, rethink what you’re doing.”
In regards to his time with AEW, Jake says he enjoys the reduced schedule and still having time for his family.
“Here’s the thing – you’ve just got to be smart with your time. So, 2 days a week I’ll be with AEW. That leaves me 5 where I can go back home or choose to do one comedy show. That still leaves 3-4 days so I’ve still got time. It’s all scheduling and my daughter is doing a great job with that. My oldest daughter, Brandy, is doing a fabulous job with that. I’m just having a good time, man. Just having a good time,” said Roberts.
