We are back and we take a look at snakes in wrestling in the Video Vault. We see some promos from Jake Roberts in the past as he wielded Damien. Rattlesnakes are also dangerous and that includes the Texas rattlesnake. Those are not the only snakes because vipers also live in a WWE ring. Randy Orton was the youngest World Champion and he is truly the Apex Predator.

What does Randy Orton have in common with reptiles? Randy says that he is called the viper because he had a fascination with reptiles.
