The Snake Pit podcast always brings interesting topics. This time, Jake Roberts talked about the advice he gave Orange Cassidy. Roberts revealed that Cassidy had many questions. Although he was not optimistic about his career, Cassidy impressed him with his performances.

“Oh, man, he just asked me questions. I tried to give him answers, man. When I first saw him, I laughed at it. After watching him go out and perform 3 or 4 shows, I realized that this kid knows what he’s doing, and he’s making it work.

He really makes it work, and he works his tail off. So you got me on your side. You’re doing something right. ”- Roberts said, as quoted by pwmania.com!

Jake Roberts on Orange Cassidy's gimmick

Cassidy and his gimmick often cause different reactions, mostly negative ones.

Roberts believes that the wrestling world has always been such that there were different characters in it. Cassidy is no different from some wrestlers from the past. “Yes. There are some guys that go out there and do headlocks and takeovers and dropkicks and this, that and the other, and there are other guys that go out and do something else.

I mean, it was no different back in the day when you had people like Thunderbolt Patterson or the Freight Train Rufus R Jones. Guys were doing something different. Then you had Antonio Rocca’s, and he was certainly different.

He was a flying son of a gunman back when nobody flew. So there were guys back then that were doing things that were different, but nobody just wanted to remember that they just kind of want to thumb their nose at what some of these new guys are doing.

And it’s not to say that I agree with all of it. I don’t. But it’s no different than 30 years ago. There were lots of guys that didn’t believe in it”.
