Jake "The Snake" Roberts PWI Press Conference

Much like the recently posted Arn Anderson promo, this is an example of a guy doing solid mic work and elevating an angle with nothing more than words.  Jake and Arn both cut such believable promos that you'd think pro-wrestling was real.  He puts over the importance of winning since it makes money.  He puts over the importance of holding a belt.  This is what is missing in today's wrestling by and large, believable promos and motivation.  A guy getting the fans to emotionally invest in what is going on in the ring.

"I don't care for the fans..."

That's an old-school heel right there.
