Jake Roberts tells the Ultimate Warrior that he needs to enter a dark room, where Lucifer awaits him in a coffin. The Warrior goes inside, and Roberts locks the door behind him, turning the lights on to reveal snakes all over the floor. The Warrior cautiously gets to the coffin and opens it. When he does, Lucifer bites him in the face. The Warrior begs Roberts to open the door as the snake’s poison takes effect, but Roberts refuses, laughing at how the Warrior is affected just like any common man. Roberts welcomes a “man in black” to see his work, which is revealed to be the Undertaker, and Roberts tells the Warrior never to trust a snake as the Warrior loses consciousness. Like all the segments to this point, Roberts knocked this one out of the park and his heel turn was shocking for many young fans that had only known him as a babyface. According to Roberts, the Warrior was bitten several times by snakes when they filmed this segment because he did not shuffle his feet and kicked and antagonized the snakes he was working with.

HOUSEKEEPING NOTES: I’m flying out to Vancouver for a work conference on Monday and I’m going to be gone all week, so I’m going to do my best to get a bunch of stuff done for next week and posted in advance, but chances are good that there won’t be a Dynamite review from me next week because I’ve got a lot of mandatory “fun nights” from vendors and stuff. I’ve already got an Observer Flashback done and posted for Wednesday morning and then the usual RAW/Nitro reposts for Thursday, although if I can squeeze in Dynamite in the hotel room on Wednesday night I’ll try to get it that posted instead. Anyway, I might not be around much, so don’t panic. I had wanted to do a whole Halloween Havoc themed thing but I’m just not gonna have the time to do what I wanted with it, and it’ll have to wait.
Any fans of Longmire, by the way? I had been looking for something to scratch my modern cowboy itch while waiting for Yellowstone and the first couple of seasons have been really good so far. I really like it, like Yellowstone meets Law & Order or something.
