Jake "The Snake" Roberts Meltdown

Jake "the Snake" Roberts was one of my favorite wrestlers growing up.

So it's heartbreaking to see him implode like this.

Wrestling is a hard life and Jake was one of the superstars that put it in the mainstream.

The WWE has tried to get him help, but it hasn't worked... obviously.

It's easy to blame his troubles on the lifestyle, environment, and injuries, but at some point the man has to be accountable.

His plight has been well documented in the film "Beyond the Mat."

Very sad.

Hopefully this will be a wake up call...if not for him, maybe others struggling with addiction.
