Jake Roberts Addresses WWE Hall of Fame Exclusion



One of the most unique and memorable wrestlers in WWE history, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, is among the most glaring omissions from the WWE Hall of Fame. Roberts commented on his exclusion from WWE’s gallery of greats during a recent interview with the Busted Open satellite radio show.

 

“There’s been a lot of guys go in that belong there, and…there are some who shouldn’t be in there, but who the hell am I? Hell, I’m not in there, so what the hell. Maybe someday when they put some more guys in there, maybe I’ll go in. I would love to go in, not so much for me, but for my kids, man. It’s part of my legacy. I put so much into wrestling; 37 years of it. Why I’m not there, I’m sure somebody’s got a reason,” he said.

 

When asked whether WWE and other wrestling organizations are scared to give him another employment opportunity, Roberts said, “I don’t think it’s the past. I think it’s just me, period, because of what I believe in… I’m a team player because I want the product better, but… my nose doesn’t fit well up anybody’s butt.”
