Jake Roberts says after he slapped Miss Elizabeth, Randy Savage got gun pulled on him
WWE Hall of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts was the guest on Eric Bischoff’s Bischoff on Wrestling podcast and talked about his infamous segment where he slapped Miss Elizabeth. Roberts said that Elizabeth’s family was extremely unhappy with the segment and her grandfather pulled a gun on Randy Savage over it.
“The other bad time I had with Randy (Savage) is when they had me slap Elizabeth. You can imagine what that was like,” Roberts said. “That wasn’t even funny. That angle that we did with the snake bite and Elizabeth should have went on. We should have gone to WrestleMania with that, but we didn’t. I was like, ‘Why in the hell isn’t this being strung out?’ Bottom line was Elizabeth’s grandparents and parents weren’t smart, okay? Randy had promised them that Elizabeth would never, ever get physically involved or hurt during his wrestling career and yet she just got slapped. Randy and her went back to visit her grandparents and the old man pulled a gun on him and said, “Don’t you even think about coming in the house!”
He said that Elizabeth’s grandfather continued with, “‘Don’t come back! Don’t come back! Our little girl did get hurt! Be a man of your word!’ All of that stuff. Randy got kicked out and he had to make it up to them right away and that meant cleaning my clock.”
