On Saturday, the stars of Chicago Style Wrestling will be joined by former WWE Superstar Jake "The Snake" Roberts.

He will appear in a CSW event at Guerin College Preparatory High School in River Grove.

The event is touted as "family friendly" and will include an autograph session with Roberts. He will also see action in the squared circle when he faces off with "African Warrior" Duce Trey.

Roberts recently made wrestling headlines when he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame's 2014. This came after a well-publicized stint during which he lived with former WCW World Champion Diamond Dallas Page and underwent a physical transformation in Page's DDP Yoga program. Roberts has been chronicling his progress via social media and on his podcast, Snake Radio.

Recently, wrestling fans created an online petition to have Roberts included in this year's Royal Rumble. They were rewarded when he made a guest appearance on "WWE Raw" during their Old School edition of the program.

Ring of Honor star Silas Young will also be in attendance at Saturday's event.

Tickets are $12 for general admission and $15 for the front row. The first meet-and-greet with Roberts is from 6-6:45 p.m. with a second at intermission.
