Want to put all your friends’ destination weddings to shame? Why not have Jake “The Snake” Roberts officiate your ceremony? It sure beats saying, “I do” on some stupid beach.
On Thursday, the WWE Hall of Famer revealed that he is an ordained minister now, and he’s ready to preside over your wedding (are you listening, Johnny Manziel?) No word on whether he’d also bring a python in a burlap sack to the ceremony, but we would assume that’s negotiable.
Roberts, one of the most iconic WWE stars of the Eighties thanks to his devastating DDT finishing move, menacing microphone work and – of course – his pet python Damien, has turned his life around in recent years, and his remarkable journey to sobriety was recently the subject of a gripping documentary, The Resurrection of Jake the Snake. Clean and sober, he’s still touring the U.S., regaling audiences with stories of his time in the ring – and now, he wants to work a few weddings into his schedule, too.
Recently became an ordained minister!! That’s right come one come all this is real. Getting married. Well I’m ready to do legal vows for all

And, as his good pal (and fellow HOFer) Scott Hall pointed out in a subsequent tweet, this might just be the beginning of the Snake’s burgeoning empire:
“You should get a law degree as well, so you can handle divorces too,” Hall wrote to Roberts. “Catch them coming and going.”
