Pro Wrestling Promo of the Day: Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Wrestlemania VI

Posted By on Wed, Jul 12, 2017 at 3:30 PM

Throughout the history of professional wrestling, what a performer can do on the mic is often just as important as what they do in the ring. Each afternoon, Smark Attack will highlight a wrestling promo that shows off the best, and sometimes the worst, in pro wrestling microphone work.

And we're not just looking for classic promos. If you're a local wrestler or if you've always wanted to be a pro wrestler and want to show off your mic skills send your best promo: 45 seconds or less to If we end up running it on the blog, we'll give you a City Paper t-shirt.

Nobody in the history of professional wrestling could work the mic like Jake "The Snake" Roberts. And, chances are, you'll see him featured in this space again. But this April 1, 1990 promo ahead of his match against "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase at Wrestlemania VI is the stuff of legend. Jake always started easy and let the moment burn for 60-90 seconds before bringing it in for a smooth, but memorable landing. No one ever made it look this easy.
