Well here’s some great news. In an interview with FOX Sports, legendary wrestler (and possible 2014 WWE Hall of Fame inductee) Jake ‘the Snake’ Roberts announced that he will be competing in the 2014 Royal Rumble match.
“I’m announcing that right now. I’ll be in the Royal Rumble next year, count on it… 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.”
This has been Roberts’ goal for a while, and I really hope it happens. Jake has worked really hard turning his life around, losing weight, and getting sober while living in DDP’s accountability crib. He deserves the second chance and to go out on his terms, once again competing before a big WWE crowd and the Royal Rumble provides an excellent opportunity.
I really hope that Scott Hall, who is also seeing improvements in the accountability crib and turning his life around, gets to appear in the Rumble match as well. Both Jake and Scott have a tremendous amount of talent that they can offer the world of wrestling, whether it is an on-screen role or something behind the scenes.
I look forward to seeing Jake come out at the Rumble, and hearing the roof blow off the building. I’m sure the master of the DDT will get to hear that “you still got it” chant.
