'Mania Match of the Day #3

WrestleMania III
The Honky Tonk Man vs. Jake "The Snake" Roberts – 4

This match was set when Honky Tonk attacked Jake on an episode of “The Snake Pit” and leveled him with a stiff guitar shot. Jake starts it off by attacking Honky from behind and pummeling him before he can even get his “Elvis Suit” off, as Ventura called it. Honky eventually gets the suit off and gains control of the match. Jake is seconded to the ring by Alice Cooper. You know … that one guy who did that one song about school being out … yeah, you know the one. Anyway, ol’ Alice honestly looks totally lost at ringside and tries to actually help Jake back to his feet on the outside while he’s selling the kicks from Honky. Jake makes it back in as Gorilla takes a shot at Alice’s wardrobe by saying “looks like something Adrian might drag out of the closet.” That’s probably a lost reference for the majority of you but I won’t explain it here. The finish sees Jimmy Hart, Honky’s manager, distract Jake so Honky can roll him up from behind for the win. Afterwards, Jake takes a wild swing and destroys Honky’s guitar on the ringpost and throws the snake on top of Jimmy Hart. Nothing here that I really cared for.
