The boa in question belonged to Alice Cooper.. If you remember back in the 80's Alice Cooper made an appearence on one of the shows and had his Boa with him, it's name was Damien, it was also used for 'The Snake Pit'..

LOL! Jake the Snake... I'm dying here!LOL!!

I sure don't remember any cobra but I was pretty young in those days (as, I would argue, all pro-wrassling fans should be... but anyway). But forget the snakes, how about the greazy mullet and molester moustache? hahaha! Complimented by the standard lycra pants...

I always thought the snake(s) looked cool, he may have played a part in my early interest in snakes but when he dumped the snake out of the bag it was always disappointing that the snake didn't proceed to consume the downed opponent, or even bite or constrict him. Maybe my sense of bloodlust was advanced for my age but I always wanted the snake to finish the guy off somehow.

I still think that right around when he first came in to WWF he was working with a boa. Round about the time he had his first major feud with Ricky The Dragon Steamboat. Now that's going back a few years.

I'm wondering if it doesnt mean that the snake died of starvation between aug-sept not that it wasnt fed for 2 months?? If it just means that it didnt eat thats stupid.

Just to clarify: The original Damien (if ever there was another) was a retic. Before, Jake didn't use to refer to his snakes by any particular name, it was only after he had a feud with this guy - Bad News Brown ,wich had pet rats, that Jake threw his (then) famous words : You and your rats are only prey for the snake! You wanna fear something?! fear DAMIEN...
From there Jake started to use mostly burms. He had feuds with Earthquake, Rick Martel and later, the Undertaker. His snake was now named Lucifer and was played by one (or more) burm(s). I have all this on tape, trust me...
Matt, i can assure you that "Damien" was a retic. I have magazines from that time with pics of Jake holding the snake and it being refered to as Damien.
Another thing, i'm with Sunrunner. Jake was a pionner with snakes and, in many ways, helped to create the herp craze. I don't think he treated snakes that bad...

JimmyDavid, i'm still curious as to where in that article the name 'Damien' was mentioned though, that was what i was asking you for..

I only ask, because if you have another article, i would like to read it..

I didn't read the actual article in question, Matt. But i knew of the whole story because it's being mentioned in other net forums. Kingsnake has it on discussion, for example.

"He must have upgraded to a burm when the checks came in more regularily."

or just kept buying a new one every couple months every time one would stress out and die...
