    Default *POTENTIAL SPOILER* Regarding the Royal Rumble 2014

    "Jake “The Snake” Roberts mention during a recent interview that he has made it his goal to enter next year’s 2014 Royal Rumble match.

    “I’m announcing that right now,” Roberts told Fox Sports. “I’ll be in the Royal Rumble next year, count on it.”

    Roberts motivation is fueled by him not wanting people to remember his final wrestling matches to be independent shows when he was out-of-shape, in poor health, and battling addictions.

    “I worked too hard in this business to go out that way. So I guess we’re going to have to take a victory lap. I’m definitely coming back,” Roberts vowed at the end of the article.

    Fox Sports’s story also covered Roberts’s association with DDP, who helped Roberts turn his life around in the Accountability Crib.

    It’s worth noting that Robert’s last appearance as a full time employee with the WWE was at the 1997 Royal Rumble where he entered at no. 7 and was eliminated by Stone Cold Steve Austin."


    So, looks like good ol' Jake is taking this seriously. I'm proud of him. I hope he can convince Vince to give him the opportunity.

    I'm all for this.


    It would be the perfect storybook ending to his road to good health and it's not like they can't spare a spot or two for a surprise, they do it every year. I'd love to see this.

    Better a legend who'll get a pop than some undercard nobody who will elicit zero crowd reaction.

    Roberts > Cesaro.

    You leave Cesaro alone before I hurt you Coco.

    Jake is one of my all-time favorites, so I would love to see him finish off his come back from all his problems by being in the Royal Rumble.

    That would be a really great moment, hopefully capped by a Hall of Fame entry next year as well. Now that Bruno and Backlund are in, the big glaring gaps in the HoF are (beyong Macho) the great heels of the 80s such as Rude and Roberts.

    What's with the Cesaro diss?

    Cesaro's wrestling skills + Jake's mic skills = the greatest wrestler of all time...if only I had a real life crete a superstar machine.

    I'd love to see Jake go out that way, and then be inducted at Mania.

    Hey if Jake, Taker and Berer all go into the HOF this year, it'll sorta be a Darkside reunion from the old days, remember the alliance they all had against Savage and Warrior?

    Would love to see this happen. Go Jake Go! If he makes it in, would love to see at least one short arm clothesline and of course the ddt!


    Thanks JV for the artwork!!

    I have not followed Jake's career at all since I watched Beyond the Mat quite a few years ago, and just watching his segment made me feel sad. I am delighted to find out that he is now clean, as I thought he was one of the greats in his heyday. T'would be nice to see him one last time, bringing a snake back to the WWE ring in the Rumble and clearing the ring again. Snake Wins! Snake Wins!

    My other hope is that he has finally made peace with his daughter.

    I have always maintained that Jake is(imo) the best mic worker there ever was. When he talked, you had better damn well listen!! He could have been so much more than he was but his story of battling back from demons is still one of wrestlings best.

    I am all for this!

    ( ?_?) - 97% of PW suddenly think Michael Cole is awesome. If you're part of the 3% that still thinks he is an annoying tool, copy & paste this into your sig.

    I'm all for this! I've been following his wellness progress and the man is doing great.

    Jake in 2014 RR would rock! and yes, Cesaro is boring as fuck.
