Jake Roberts, Steve Austin, Mick Foley & Warrior Comment On Jake’s HOF Induction

    About fooking time. He deserved it nonethless. One of the greatest legends in the biz.

      I was about to say the same thing! It is about damn tiiiiime!

  • https://twitter.com/THEREALBIGMAC THEREALBIGMAC

    Finally! Some recognition for all the hard work Jake has put into getting sober and healthy again! It still would have been nice to have had him make a surprise entrant into the Royal Rumble though but who knows? There’s always next year!

    • Abz

      Well he could take on the wyatts at wrestlemania with cena lol. Imagine the intensity in the promo between bray wyatt and jake roberts.

      • Donny Octave

        Interesting…

  • pwnez

    I hope Jake Roberts gives a shout out to Damien. Well deserved HOF induction.

    • Clare Boyle

      Damien was the snake that got “squished” by Earthquake, right?

      • MadWolf

        but his brothers still alive

        • MadWolf

          Lucifer

          • Clare Boyle

            oh yeah i forgot about Lucifer… I’m terrified of snakes!

      • superturbo

        Yup, the second snake of Jake Roberts’ after he turned heel was called “Lucifer” but then Lucifer died 3 days after he bite the (then *semi-retired* [see WM7]) Macho-Man Randy Savage in the arm in 1991.

        • Clare Boyle

          i remember watching WW(F)E back then

  • SOBI

    Congrats to Jake the Snake.
    I hope Taker is the one who inducts him, Roberts being his mentor of sorts.
    also I hope he brings Damien along at the HOF ceremony that’ll be cool

    • astronautbutter

      DDP is also a likely candidate.

  • bambam

    Warrior and Roberts are great choices. All we need is the Macho Man Randy Savage!!!

    • astronautbutter

      That’d be the best HOF class ever. Maybe it’s possible, after all, they did announce the toy set on Raw today with Macho Man.

      • bambam

        ooooooooohhhhhhhh yeahhhhhhhh!!!!!!

  • Aperture

    Cool!

    So where does Randy come in?

  • Buzzard Follower

    congrats to jake

  • ibeBrave

    Macho man next week after that week the undertaker??

    • Bryan

      Undertaker needs to officially retire first but yeah I’d love Macho Man next week or whenever the next induction is.

      • Abz

        I guess if they are inducting macho they probably announcw him last after Paul Bearer and Rick Rude, who I believe are the next inductees set to be announced.

    • superturbo

      If the Macho Man Randy Savage was to be inducted he’ll be the last one announced i’m sure, as they’d have to end it big don’t they? Can’t induct Savage then add others after him?, it wouldn’t feel right.

      But yes if he (along with the Poffo family) was to be included this year along with Jim Hellwig and Jake Roberts. Now would be the perfect time to do so, with his fellow wrestling peers i do think!

      • Clare Boyle

        they might keep the macho man for next year… i think the bulldogs might go in next (wish they could induct Owen… damn you Martha!)

  • Clare Boyle

    Trust me, it’s a well-deserved honour and it’s definitely about time! Now if only McMahon would wake up and realise that The British Bulldogs should be in there too (both of them… I may not like Dynamite that much because of him being Chris Benoit’s idol among other things but I do respect his in ring ability.) (I know Owen Hart is a very, very, very long shot… and I know why and I understand that Martha has her reasons and I’m sure they’re very valid in her own mind at least… believe me I want it to happen more than anything but I know it won’t for a long time, if ever which angers me… Owen would have been 50 on May 7th of next year. He could have been a world champion had things turned out differently.) Owen not going into the hall of fame is one of the many, many, MANY reasons I have for not watching WWE the way I used to. I still watch WWE Experience and I got The Royal Rumble and I am getting Mania but if it sucks I won’t be getting any more pay per views!

  • skywolf

    i hope macho man and paul bearer are next to be inducted

  • $ir Joe

    i remember watching jake the snake in the mid atlantic area in the 70s as a young boy. he was the efirst one i ever saw use the ddt. he was always a very exciting performer.

    • Xx_Deadpool_xX

      he created it

      • raVen

        off a botch. great story

  • SteJo

    Could have swapped JBL and El Torrito for Jake and Heath Slaiter, let Jake give Heath the DDT and the royal rumble would have been a little better

  • Sigma ?

    Dream come true. Hopefully next will be Randy Savage.

  • Wes Eisenschenk

    Rude beat both Warrior and Roberts and may be the only guy who’s ever pulled a title off both UW and Sting. He better be in this next class.

  • lazarus87

    I think they should induct the greatest stable of superstars ever….THE ODDITIES!

  • Dixie Carter

    Quick! Hide the drink. Jake is here. *turns up at Mania* Hides a bottle of Vodka in his snake bag.

    • Dixie Carter

      Wrestlemania sponsored by AA meetings. Now please welcome Jake the snake to the ring…Falls down the ramp singing “Jack Daniels, Cider, Vodka, Beer”! Haha.

        Whoever you are – I just wanted to inform you that whether this place is for entertainment or not, kharma is a real disaster. I’m not an advocate of any kind – but now or later when you wonder why bad things are happening to you, consider just for a moment that you are the source of your own negative energy.

        Some ridiculous things are funny – this is not.

        • Dixie Carter

          Jay Strongbow HIDE THE DRINK!!!

  • raVen

    Finally!!

  • captaindaddy72

    Very well deserved, I like this HOF class so far lol

  • faceit

    I guess they’re letting in assholes in the HOF now.
