Considering he had the one-shot appearance this year, I doubt they'd bury him. No doubt just telling his story will do a fine job of that, though. How in the world is this thing going to be three discs, though?

I have a hunch that the main program will be pretty long since Roberts had a long career. 2 hours, maybe even 3, but that may be stretching it. I think the matches after that will stretch over to three discs alone, then you have the promos.

 

Or, they may pull an Ultimate Warrior DVD and throw in a "bonus" disk...

With the life Jake has led, just telling his story straight up would come off as a burial job. I mean, how can you spin that in any positive way at all?

I think it'd be more Jake saying how he had a great career, fucked things up, and has no one to blame but himself, thanks to the WWE for all the opportunities, blah, blah, blah, rather than everyone burying the guy, like in the Warrior DVD.

 

In other words, the story may not be positive, but compared to the alternative, it looks far better.

More info from BBFC.co.uk. Maybe I was wrong about the number of discs...

Was his fued with Rude the one where the ravishing one ended up naked on tv/ a live audience?

It was towards the tail end of it. I think the listed match vs. Rude happened just after it, just before Roberts' feud with Andre.

 

Rude wasn't naked, btw. He had a g-string on.

I'm trying to remember which Rick Rude feud had him pouring mouthwash in his opponent's eyes. It was either Jake or Piper, but I can't remember for sure. I just recall that being pretty fucking hardcore.

It was Piper. Piper was on the Brother Love Show, Heenan distracted him from one side, causing Rude to sneak up on him and splash mouthwash into his eyes, then a Rude Awakening of course.

 

I believe it was after Piper cost Rude the Intercontinental title against the Warrior at SummerSlam '89.

 

I actually have an old WWF Magazine with a Piper interview, hyping Survivor Series versus Rude's team, and some of the barbs Piper throws at Rude and Heenan are classic. Too bad the copy I have is at my parents' place; otherwise I'd waste no time sharing them with everyone.

By all accounts, this is sounding like an excellent DVD. The feature is supposed to be one of the better ones they've put together. No FYE bonus disc as earlier reported, but WWE.com is offering a gift set of sorts that includes a bitchin' Jake the Snake t-shirt (looks exactly like the green one from the late '80s). I've wanted that shirt for years, but I may just get one on eBay (the new one, not the originals), since this sounds like a set I wanna check out ASAP.

Actually it came off really bad because they were essentially bashing BTM for showing Roberts like they just earlier in said DVD were talking about with the guy.

 

They were also trying to really get across that Vince would never let a worker work drunk and I about yelled bullshit at the screen.
