* NeverWorkWithChildrenOrAnimals: It's hard to take Jake seriously when Damien's tail keeps plugging up his nostrils or slapping his face.
** [=WCW=] booked a match between Wrestling/{{Sting}} and Jake where the finish was for Jake to sic a (real, but devenomed) cobra on Sting, only to have it turn on him. But Jake couldn't get the snake to bite him, so he ended up holding it to his face while it flailed stupidly.
** The 1/6/14 RAW was another instance of this. The snake he brought out to torment a KO'd Dean Ambrose wasn't too keen on tormenting him. Plus, Dean [[{{Corpsing}} corpsed]] when the snake was rubbing against his face.

** A few hardcore Wrestling/UltimateWarrior fans, in discussing Wrestling/{{Undertaker}}'s face turn in early 1992 (to feud with Roberts), speculated on how a feud between Warrior and Roberts [[note]](the storyline basis was that Roberts offered to help Warrior in his feud with the Undertaker, only for Roberts to play Warrior for a fool to gain a psychological edge over him)[[/note]] during the fall of 1991 would have played out. After suggesting that Roberts would have been decisively beaten at every turn and his credibility destroyed, Warrior would have turned his attention back to Undertaker and destroyed him once and for all at [[Wrestling/WrestleMania WrestleMania VIII]]. None of this happened, of course, since Warrior was fired after the 1991 SummerSlam (due to his approach toward VinceMcMahon over a pay dispute), but these hardcore fans wanted to see [=McMahon=] (whom they felt was in the wrong) make due with Warrior and put the issue behind them to allow a feud they felt fans were promised to take place ... even if the much more compelling Roberts-Wrestling/RandySavage feud, Undertaker's face turn or "The Streak" would surely have been sacrificed.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Jake was originally planned to feud with Wrestling/HulkHogan for the WWE Championship in the 80's, but as Jake himself put it: "I DDT Hogan on the stage, the crowd [[DracoInLeatherPans starts chanting Jake The Snake]], and Vince immediately pulled the plug".

** ''Heroes of Wrestling'', of course. The "match" with Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart got hastily turned into a tag match with, Neidhart[=/=]Wrestling/KingKongBundy vs. Jake[=/=]Wrestling/{{Yokozuna}}. The monsters got tagged in and Bundy splashed Jake, who wasn't the legal man, and the ref quickly counted to three to end the whole mess. Yoko never even got into the ring (due to the fact that he had grown so fat that he couldn't get a wrestling license since he couldn't get the needed medical clearance), and the show went off the air some 22 minutes ahead of schedule without even a farewell from the announcers. There's also his infamous pre-match promo which starts off with Jake drunkenly rambling about how he cheats, which descends into him chanting "DDT! DDT! DDT! DDT!" And by all accounts that was the ''high point of the show''.

* WrittenInInfirmity: In a 2014 interview in WWE Magazine, Jake mentioned that he talks like that due to having taken a knee to the throat, and cannot raise his voice any louder.
