Jake Roberts reflects on going into the WWE Hall of Fame

During a recent interview with SportsKeeda, the legendary Jake Roberts expressed his opinion on going into the WWE Hall of Fame. Roberts officially announced his retirement from wrestling in 2010 after an event in New York.

“It was absolutely fabulous you know. There was no question how much talent I had or what I had done for wrestling. My interview work, my wrestling over the years. There was never a question there, but what was a question on how is Jake doing? You know, I have never been the guy to hide behind, I never kept secrets.

"I was very outspoken about my problems because I wanted people to learn from it, but at the same time when you put yourself out there like that, then you get labeled. It’s like, wait a damn minute, I’m trying to do something to help kids, people, and now you’re going to jerk something away from me because I’ve admitted these things? You know, it kind of stung.

"When the call finally came in it was probably one of the happier moments in my life. I just wish that my Dad could have been around for it. He wasn’t, and that’s that. I’m happy to be part of it, and very grateful to the WWE for giving me that second opportunity, the third opportunity, whatever it was, to go in. You know, I belong with some of those guys, not all of them, but I belong with some of them" - Jake said.
