[describing how he handled dealing with his neck and back injury from the guitar shot he took on The Snake Pit from 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.
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.
