Jake Roberts On WWE HOF Exclusion, ‘Taker & Kane In Masks

— One of the most unique and memorable wrestlers in WWE history, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, is among the most glaring omissions from the WWE Hall of Fame. Roberts commented recently on Facebook on whether his exclusion from WWE’s gallery of greats concerns him.

He wrote, “My real opinion of this, is I can’t let it rule my life. I appreciate the fan support, every bit as much as I SHOULD. But the HOF isn’t going to make or break my day..I have other things to concern myself with. Its not conceit, its not apathy. Its reality.”

WWE.com has published a photo gallery of The Undertaker and Kane wearing masks. WWE.com asks “Which masked Brother of Destruction is more frightening, The Undertaker or Kane?”

The Undertaker wore a mask in 1995 and 1996 after suffering a broken orbital bone during a match against King Mabel (a/k/a Viscera, Big Daddy V).

— The Rock is featured on the cover of the latest issue of the Mexican wrestling magazine Super Luchas. He participated in an interview with the magazine while touring Mexico recently to promote Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.

    Some good photo evidence to support what I said when Kane debuted with the mask. It bears a striking resemblance to the one worn by UT.

    why havent they inducted jake roberts in the hof? does vince problems with him aswell??

    I think Jake’s a sure bet for the Hall one day, but: a) they’d have to know they were getting a sober Jake for the ceremony, and I don’t know if he can guarantee that; and b) there are lots of guys still out there for inclusion one day – it’s these guys that give the HOF the ‘legs’ its got to run every year.

    Wrestling’s not like other sports, it goes through eras rather than seasons. There isn’t a set number of wrestlers expected to retire year-after-year, so they have to hold some deserving nominees back for the future.

    @Me: I also thought the same. I like how they made Kane’s new mask resemble Taker’s old one. It adds to the continuity of the story between the two ‘brothers’.

    @Peter Ballack: Maybe it is their way of hinting at a possible new story between the two.
