Harvey's Comedy Club says
Menacing, intimidating and totally hypnotic in the ring, Jake “The Snake” Roberts was a Superstar capable of taking you down physically as well as psychologically. Slithering to the ring with a monstrous python concealed in a burlap sack, Jake used fear as a weapon as deftly as he used pain. His DDT finishing move is still one of the most brutal finishers ever unleashed on a Superstar. The son of noted grappler Grizzly Smith, Roberts was born into a sports-entertainment family. Eager to follow in his father’s footsteps, Roberts began competing in the early ’70s, making a name for himself in promotions throughout the South. As time wore on, Roberts soon became a fan favorite, thanks in part to his memorable rivalries with the Honky Tonk Man, the Million Dollar Man and Andre the Giant. WWE Universe fans from that generation will never forget the Giant’s paralyzing fear of Jake’s pet python, Damien. Whether competing in the ring, or burrowing into the psyches of his opponents, Jake “The Snake” Roberts will go down in the annals of WWE history as one of the most cunning and lethal Superstars ever to step between the ropes. **FEATURING: The Grappler** For 35 years, fans have known Denton as “The Grappler”, a masked villain that has defeated some of the biggest stars in pro wrestling history. The new show will detail Denton’s adventures with ring icons such as Ric Flair, Jake “The Snake” Roberts and his long-time friend “Rowdy” Roddy Piper. He was the longest reigning heavyweight champion in several legendary promotions, including Portland Wrestling and Mid-South Wrestling, where he defeated top stars like Andre the Giant, Dusty Rhodes and the Junkyard Dog. His autobiography “Grappler: Memoirs of a Masked Madman” earned rave reviews and a 5-star rating on Amazon.com, where it was the #1 selling pro wrestling title for the summer of 2014. Len Denton will take fans inside the rough and tumble world of “bear hugs” and “body slams”. **This show is considered a special event.
