Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts: Comeback of a lifetime
Few people believed in Diamond Dallas Page when, at the age of 35, the nightclub owner-turned-pro wrestling manager decided to try his hand in the ring.
Jake “The Snake” Roberts, at that time one of the biggest names in the business, was one of the believers.
Insiders considered Page too old to begin a career as an in-ring performer. But Roberts ignored the skeptics and trained the New Jersey native. Within 10 years DDP (short for Diamond Dallas Page) was a three-time WCW world heavyweight champion and living his dream.
