15k can score a lot of crack.


/seriously though, I hope he stays clean and gets healthy. He was one of the best things about wrestling in the 80's

Anyone would lose weight practicing yoga with double-dog penetration.

or...does DDP mean something else?
 
2013-01-26 08:20:16 AM
I remember watching him back in the day, can't wait for my phone call.

Almost $15,200 now.

I can't believe he has stayed alive this long. I gave him about a year after seeing him in Beyond the Mat. Good for him though. Hopefully he can stay clean. Scott Hall is now my bet for next dead wrestler.

Man, he looks better than me now, and I'm 20 years younger.

In my perfect world, the World Wildlife Fund and the World Wrestling Federation would have agreed to both stay "WWF" in exchange for the WWF doing promo spots for the WWF.

Imagine some tiny skinny hippy girl standing next to The Rock with the Rock saying "We may not be the same, but we both agree -- panda bears are worth saving." And then she could do one of those fake punches and throw him down the ground. It would have been awesome.
 
2013-01-26 09:05:33 AM
You know what? Good for him. A lot of people have trouble asking for help.

Actually, Scott Hall's also moving in with DDP to dry out and get in shape. So hopefully he'll get the help he needs too and gets some semblance of a normal life for a while.

I was at the indy show in lakewood (cleveland) ohio where jake got drunk and whipped out his snake 3-4 years back. met him before the show,fat as hell but the man cut the best promo on me and my buddy..I'll have to find that photo.

Why doesn't is surprise me that a guy like DDP is basically the go-to guy for Pro Wrestlers to get their shiat together?

/He's just always struck me as a friendly and inviting sort of person, I could be way off base about that tough.

Jesus christ, so depressing, but man.... it'd be great to see him go out in one last PPV match on WWE.

I swear to christ, I thought he died years ago.

Brubold: DDP's yoga works.

/got the book
//my old knees can't take all the squatting


Not exactly.
There is nothing new about yoga, whether his version or anyone else's.
The activity worked.
And as for the guy losing 100#?
1) Good for him
but
B) Either he cut back on his caloric intake OR his system burns calories more inefficiently than most people, allowing the yoga, not known for burning calories, to burn them.
 
2013-01-26 11:50:25 AM
So he spent this all on blow, probably.

Well, maybe not, actually, if DDP's watchful eye is keeping him out of trouble. However, Jake Roberts is the carniest of carnies in the wrestling world, so I have my doubts.

Hopefully this money is actually going to an account in DDP's name, so Roberts won't be able to spend it on anything but surgery.

Yoga is more than just the exercise. It is much like a martial art in that you are focusing mind as well as body, and that has a power(not supernatural) on your well being, which in turn helps you make changes elsewhere. It's about finding the activity that works with your mind to get the rest of your life together. Jake was known for his awful lifestyle, and, obviously, the mental aspects of yoga have helped him more than the physical, simply because he now has the will to do what he is doing when he previously did not. This has less to do with the "activity" as much as it has to do with the method to encourage that well being.

And yoga is anaerobic, which is good for burning calories long term because it builds muscle mass. The more muscle, the more passive calorie burn to power those muscles.

Already Disturbed: What happens when he gets that first taste of post-op painkillers?


Most addicts will forgo pain meds, an old friend had his knee rebuilt and he even refused a morphine drip after surgery. Went through his entire surgery and recovery taking nothing stronger than an advil. That shiat amazed me.

I went through the checkout process three times, way to go indiegogo. And your Country dropdown box had Uganda as the first thing to show up when hitting U.

He's working with Page, too. If anyone can keep The Snake and The Bad Guy from becoming statistics, it's him. DDP Yoga has dome an incredible job of helping Jake get himself back into shape, physically and mentally.

Good for him getting his lift back on track. Hopefully he has a way set up to handle the money as giving a recovering addict $20,000 isn't the best way to help them stay clean.
 
2013-01-26 02:30:38 PM
What would you rather do: Take a running powerbomb from Dlo Brown or carry Jake the Snakes bag through a Singapore customs checkpoint?

/Good for Jake. Hope he stays on the right track.
