Jake Roberts Likely For WWE HOF, WWE To Do Old School RAW Every Year

– Following the ratings success of Monday’s Old School RAW, WWE is planning to make the themed show an annual event every January.

– According to a source in WWE, Jake “The Snake” Roberts is a lock to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame during WrestleMania XXX weekend in April. There is still no definitive word as to whether or not Roberts will appear in the Royal Rumble match later this month.

    Well deserved for Jake, and maybe we will get DDP and Scott as well. Stil lholding out for Jake in the Rumble though, that would be magnificent.

      I would love to see DDP in the hall of fame, the guy was a big force in helping Jake get back into condition, plus the guy is such an inspiration, started his wrestling career when quite a lot of guys retire and won the world title a couple of times, ITS ME ITS ME ITS D D P!

        the real and the original Peoples Champ!

      • brad

        I agree I also think they should induct taker, jake and of course the macho man.

      • brad

        Also curt Henning he is long over due.

        • Worm

          Mr Perfect is already in the hall of fame

          • brad

            They did induct him I almost forgot you know what I think I was thinking of rick rude that’s what I was thinking of your right henning has been inducted

  • Johrdann Miller

    Do it every year yea, but have it in NY so the crowd actually gives the Legends a reaction.

    • Matt Gallagher

      Have it anywhere that it’s a good crowd ex: ny, philly, Chicago, Seattle, la, miami

      • bigbob10118

        You forgot Boston

        • Matt Gallagher

          My point was big cities

    • 9 year old boy

      Toronto and we will give the legends a massive ovation and some maple syrup ;)

  • Scott Kinnard

    Jake needs to the the Hall of Fame headliner not Ultimate Warrior. Savage needs to go in before Warrior. I’d like to see Rick Martel inducted too.

  • raVen

    and they think warrior will be the headliner? bwahahhahahaaa

  • Tom Shelton

    Jake Deserves This and its pretty close from where he got his start in bill watts territory

  • Tom Shelton

    I think this years hall of fame is going to be the best ever

  • Guet

    I like the old school Rawls just wish they could get different legends in instead of the same ones

    • bambam

      jake roberts is all we needed!!

    • Salamander1017

      there’s only so many relevant legends that they haven’t used, if they keep doing old school raws every year they will have to use the same ones.

    • Ninjastar

      im pretty sure wwe tries and reaches out to many legends , but most dont wanna do a 1 night show, for whatever reason , so expect the same ol legends every year , I give it 3 more years and this theme will fade away .

  • captaindaddy72

    Well deserved if he gets in

  • I’m your voodoo daddy

    Marty Jannetty, Tatanka, Kwang and Papa Shango for next year’s Old School !

    • SonofSheik81

      Given that Charles Wright showed up this year, he could be Shango next year no problem. When I was a kid, I loved Shango. One of the weirdest, most mysterious characters ever. And then they just kind of buried him and I kept pining for him to come back. Of course, I was just a youngster back then and never understood guys could get repackaged. Years later, I’m like… NO WAY! The Godfather is Papa Shango? Get out!

  • Jason

    I think Stone Cold Steve Austin should induct Jake The Snake Roberts.

    • BOOCH

      I think DDP is the one who should induct him. Unless he gets inducted this year as well, THEN go with Austin!

      • Jason

        I agree.

  • Lemonz

    Jake the Snake looked really good, he looked younger than his 2005 appearance, and much healthier.

  • Hershey Maxwell Barber

    Hell yeah! Good for you Jake! It’s awesome to see him turning his life around.

  • Sigma ?

    This is awesome news. It’s been a long time coming too.
