Jake Roberts Announced As 2014 WWE Hall Of Fame Inductee

WWE announced Jake Roberts as the second inductee into the Hall of Fame: Class of 2014 on this week's episode of Monday Night Raw. Roberts joins The Ultimate Warrior as he was announced on Raw a couple of weeks ago.

The 2014 WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place the night before Wrestlemania XXX on Saturday, April 5, 2014 from the New Orleans Arena in New Orleans, Louisiana.

    Best wrestler to never win a championship.

    I will say I think Jake knew he was going in and when he said “this year their inducting assholes” was him joking around implying he was an asshole all these years and it came out wrong.

      Hopefully, jake can manage not to fall off the wagon before the ceremony or wwe will rescind its induction and instead offer the induction to the snake itself; at least the snake is guaranteed to show up sober and drug free for the ceremony.

        I don’t know, man. That snake’s been running with a bad crowd for years.

          It is so funny to see the hof for real sports and the wrestling hof.
          in baseball, you see dignified athletes going into the hof, while in pro wrestling you have a guy who is famous for carrying a snake to the ring and a guy who ran to the ring like a nut, grunted to the cameras and shook the ropes like an ape during feeding time.
          wwe should book their hof ceremonies at the local zoos.

            I don’t think a hall of fame should be based on an accomplishment but more that you were so memorable that 20, 30 years people fans still know about you or remember you. I don’t think because someone was a transitional champion for example and it was there only reign then automatically they should be inducted.

            Scott Hall should go in if they plan on making a kliq edition of hall of fame with Nash. Kinda like a combination of kliq/DX/nWo. Not saying you had to just be a member of those groups but also feuded with those groups like DDP, Nation of Domination members of Henry retires. Lex Luger and so on.

      Actually, wwe should induct warrior, jake , and scott hall into the hall of fame together so the old school rassling fans can take bets on which one of these has beens can make a “coherent” speech in something which resembles the English language.

        Another pithy “above-it-all” comment. You watched all of it just like we did. *You are* an “old school rasping fan.” It’s obvious. On to something else, Jake is one of the best talkers that’s ever been. Couple that with the fact that his whole outlook on life has changed and this will be a fantastic speech. Warrior is totally likely to be “off the rails” but that’s what we (you included) love about him. Scott was also a great talker so he’d have no problems either, though I doubt he’ll go in with this class.
