Speaking on an episode of The Snake Pit podcast, Jake Roberts discussed the changes he implemented in response to the demands of the WWE stage. When questioned about his altered in-ring style, Roberts stressed the necessity of heightened aggression. He explained that WWE audiences responded better to a more physically dominant approach rather than the strategic mind games he may have employed elsewhere. Roberts remarked:

Just to be more vicious. You know, it wasn’t a mental game that you can play. If you went out and played the mental game, they wouldn’t get it. And they kind of leave you holding the bag. You had to be more vicious, and more on top of the guy. So, that’s not a problem. I could do that.
