Jake Roberts on WWE Hall of Fame: “I know I belong in there”



Jake Roberts while speaking to www.wrestlingvoiceradio.com discussed his
chances of going into the WWE hall of fame. He said: “I know I belong in
there, a lot more than others that are in there but I don’t care about
that, the WWE was very good to me. I didn’t understand a lot of things,
I was not a good business man. Vince would call me say we need an idea
for this and I’d give him an idea and we’d just rock and roll with it. I
didn’t know I’d to go in there and fight for my money and my place and
the bottom line is the squeaky wheel gets the grease and I should of
recognized that. I should of done the right thing and been squeaky.”

    One of the best mid carders in the wwe back in the day. Last I saw of him he showed up to an event looking in poor shape. It’s too bad he was one of my favorites.

    jake should have been wwf champ at least once, best ring psychology out there he looked like a creep wasn’t in great shape and yet was over because he sold the hell out of that character.

    Agree 100% with J

    Sober up you drunk/druggie…maybe you will make it .

  5. -J- says:

    that drunk druggie is a legend and pioneer, sure the drugs and alcoholism and such play a factor in his not yet being inducted.

  6. HOF Fan says:

    If they banned all wrestlers that had drug or alcohol issues from the HOF, then Bret Hart would be banned since he had some prescription pain killer addictions a while back

  7. Chris James says:

    He wasn’t the only snake messin with the devil back then….

  8. Chris James says:

    A true legend, innovator of the DDT, and arguably in the top 5 best promo guys of all time.
