Vince McMahon is the Executive Chairman of WWE and one of the biggest names in the pro wrestling world. He is a highly controversial figure in the business and not everyone likes him at all, including his former employees. It seems a WWE Hall Of Famer even left WWE after McMahon broke a promise to him.

WWE Hall of Famer Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts worked in WWE for many years and knows how Vince McMahon functions. Roberts even blasted Vince McMahon previously for humiliating people in WWE.

During a recent exclusive interview with, Jake Roberts revealed some interesting details about his early days in the WWF. One of the most significant moments he shared was about a promise he received from Vince McMahon regarding a booking position. According to Jake, Vince had assured him several years prior that he would be given the position once Pat Patterson was done booking.

Feeling confident in this promise, Jake eagerly awaited his opportunity to take on the role. However, when the time finally came, he was disappointed to learn that the position would not be handed over to him.


Vince McMahon had explained that out of respect for Pat, they would not fill the position, even though Pat Patterson was still there and had not left the company. Roberts then noted that he left WWF back in 1992 after McMahon broke that promise.

“Vince had promised me that position long before, several years before, that that would be my spot. So when it happened, I’m like, ‘Okay, I’m ready, man’, and the story was ‘Well, out of respect for Pat, we’re not going to fill that position.’ Bullsh*t. Pat never left. He was still there. He just wasn’t shown on TV.”

Jake Roberts also believes modern pro wrestling took out a big tradition that used to be the norm back in the day. Roberts will continue to share more bizarre stories about his larger-than-life experiences and fans can’t wait to hear them.
