[10.0] "In the roided up/coked up era with over the top promos, this guy was the exact opposite -- calm, yet extremely menacing menacing. A+ psychology."

[10.0] "This man is one of. the toughest men alive, in wrestling or not. He's survived one hell of a life, and lived to tell about it. He is a legend in this sport, and in life. Long live Jake Roberts."

[9.0] "Great storyteller and had incredible psychology. His promos were also different from everyone else's. The only thing preventing me from giving him a 10 was that he never got as far as he could have due to his own personal issues. Glad to see he's on the right path now though."
Sh0oter0oni wrote on 05.03.2015:
[10.0] "I would always hear big steroid guys screaming and yelling during promos. Jake, on the other hand, would talk in a calm voice, but with an underlining tone of evil that captivated me as a youngster. It wasn't what he said that frightened you, but the manner in which he delivered it that made you think he was capable of more evil than others."

[8.0] "An excellent mid-card attraction for his dark promo work and excellent in-ring psychology. He might not have the marketable look or diverse moveset that many wrestlers would have. But he more than made up for it with his ability to sell you into watching any of his matches."
JMTheBadOne wrote on 07.12.2014:
[6.0] "He was very solid with his psychology, and was essentially a mid-card attraction instead of your typical title contender. May have done more with his career if he hadn't defected from the WWE to the WCW (same could probably said if he didn't have his legendary "personal demons" to contend with. )"

Yoyo wrote on 08.01.2014:
[9.0] "Great presence, character and psychology, an awesome finisher and unique promos; a motivated Snake was quite the show stealer. I'm only giving him a 9 because he didn't take full advantage of all his potential. Glad to see him back and in great shape on this year's first RAW."

[9.0] "good wrestling ability, great gimmick, one of the best on the mic, but personal demons really slowed him down, didnt need a title around his waist great feuds especially against rick rude"
Lecter wrote on 06.06.2013:
[8.0] "His demons did a good job of tainting his career, and his in-ring work was never stellar, but there's no denying that Roberts is one of the most well spoken wrestlers in history, with a chilling delivery to go with it."
