The matches that were included I enjoyed for the most part(although I have seen a few of these already). Overall the main thing about this disc set is that it feels too short. I would've liked to have seen a few more matches included in this set as well as more interview segments as Jake was noted for his mic skills.
But Horsemen aside, this DVD is an excellent journey into the background of one of the greatest professional wrestlers in America. Jake was the offspring of a very illicit relationship, the foundation for the intimidating character he became. The story provides insight into the origin of one of the most devestating moves in professional wrestling, the DDT. The fact that this move is now commonplace shows the difference between the modern tales told in the squared circle to the classic storytelling of old.
The matches are fantastic, and the extras are great.
But the opening poem by Jake sets the tone. Make no mistake, its a dark journey into the mind of Jake "The Snake" Roberts...
The match selection was pretty good. I would've liked to see matches vs Dibiase, Savage, Martel, and Bad News Brown. Some of the feuds weren't really talked about too much.
The promos section was the main reason I wanted this set. Jake is the greatest wrestler on the mic. ever. I like Flair, Piper, Dibiase, and a few others. However, Jake is at the top of the list. Great promos and memories in tons of them. I wish there were more Snake Pits, but beggars and choosers.
