I am deeply saddened to report that legendary, professional wrestler Grizzly Smith, the father of Jake “The Snake" Roberts has passed away today. There are no further details at this time. I have known Jake Roberts for eight years. I know this is a difficult time for him and his family. I extend my deepest condolences to them.
On behalf of myself and the entire Wrestling News World team our thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family.
