Wrestling Legend Retires

(Los Angeles, CA) – Jake "The Snake" Roberts name makes many wrestlers and fans cringe as they remember his vicious finishing move the DDT, then add insult to injury as he let his snake Damien slither over his victims. On January 29, 2011, Jake the Snake will retire from professional wrestling against former WWE star Sinn Bodhi at Wrestlereunion in Los Angeles, CA.

Growing up Sinn Bodhi idolized Roberts, and Roberts was probably the only wrestler that actually intimidated Bodhi.

The two superstars would eventually wrestle each other for the first time in a tag-team match where Jake "The Snake" Roberts teamed up with Nigel McGuiness to face Sinn Bodhi and TNA’s Doug Williams. The match ended with Sinn Bodhi finding himself on the receiving end of Robert’s vicious DDT.

In Ottawa, 2002, Roberts and Bodhi became friends and Roberts taught Bodhi everything he knows.

"I probably learned the most just sitting on his couch watching videos of his matches with Legends like Ricky Steamboat, Macho Man Randy Savage, Ted DiBiase, and "Ravishing" Rick Rude etc… Jake would play and pause the videos explaining to me what he was thinking and doing throughout the matches. It was scary just how intelligent he was AND is" says Bodhi

This match at Wrestlereunion in Los Angeles isn’t just a retirement match, it’s a match between teacher and student. Bodhi will be the last match his idol will ever partake in, an honor for him in so many ways.

"I will be facing Jake "The Snake" Roberts in his Retirement Match at Wrestlereunion. Jake has described me as, "Too dangerous for WWE to control." Yet, I will be facing the most innovative, dangerous man in Pro Wrestling history… My teacher… My friend… I love you Jake, however, at Wrestlereunion you will be passing the torch whether you like it or not…" says Bodhi on the match
