Personal Quote:

[describing how he handled dealing with his neck and back injury from the guitar shot he took on The Snake Pit from Wayne Farris, aka The Honky Tonk Man] I took so many downers, muscle relaxers and painkillers to kill the pain that I had to have something to get me up for the show. See more »

Trivia:

His signature move, the DDT, was invented by accident. Once during a match in his National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) days, Roberts had his opponent, "The Grappler", in a front face-lock, but was tripped. Roberts' opponent fell on his head, actually knocking him out. See more »
