[10.0] "A master on the microphone & very good in the ring as well. One of my all-time favorites. Definitely stood out during the 80's with his promos, his look, & ring work."
Doctor Rags wrote on 13.11.2015:
[8.0] "Jake Roberts could talk you into selling your liver to Eugene Victor Tooms. Jake Roberts could convince you that Giant Baba's offense actually hurt. Jake Roberts has one of the best gimmicks ever. Although being a master of both wordplay and in-ring psychology, the most outstanding match of his that comes to mind in his blindfold match with Rick Martel - which is only memorable because it surprisingly wasn't horrible. Sadly, his personal vices prevent him from rising to the top of the tops, but everything else was fantastic. Even Heroes of Wrestling was fantastically bad."
KingKendrick wrote on 03.08.2015:
[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."
Phenomenal91 wrote on 09.06.2015:
[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."
autopsy12 wrote on 09.03.2015:
[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."
ggultra2764 wrote on 27.12.2014:
[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. )"
