  1. Awesome. Hope it happens.

  2. I sort of lost faith in Roberts and Hall to be able to turn things around. In the 80s my favorite wrestlers hands down were Jake Roberts as a face and Ted Dibiase as a heel. I was always wondering what happened to him after his Wrestlemania run with the Undertaker, and then it became news after he came back as to what occurred. Then he kept relapsing and coming back, I eventually lost faith in the guy.

    Same sort of story with Hall.

      Yeah I was the same, but he appears to be doing way better now and serious about turning his life around. He’s been sober/clean for the six months he has been living with DDP, eating healthy, doing regular exercise and has lost a lot of weight. Says he is happy and able to dream again, and doesn’t want to die like he used to hope for. He looks good. Hopefully he never falls of the wagon again. Same with Scott.

      • Man, when I think about Jake in his prime. Jesus, he had the delivery of a Chris Benoit with the mic presence of…well his mic presence really could have been better than anyone else in WWE history. I don’t think he ever could have been the World Champion, but he was definitely up there with Michaels, Perfect, Rude and all.

    • Gary Smith says:

      I agree, but I think he could have been champion (same with Perfect, my all time favorite, and Rude) had it not been the Hogan era. Or if they would have just let Hogan chase the title for a little while.

      Too bad Snake, Perfect, and Rude weren’t just a little younger and came into their prime in the “New Generation” after Hogan left. Them with Michaels and Hart, without Hogan, would have produced some great main events.
