WWE Considering Jake Roberts For 2014 Royal Rumble?

Posted by Matt Boone August 8, 2013 6 Comments

As we reported a few weeks ago, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, with help from his friend Diamond Dallas Page, have been campaigning for Roberts to return to WWE as an entrant in the next Royal Rumble match in 2014. Roberts noted that it would complete his “comeback.”

According to reports, word in WWE is that the company is not even considering Roberts in the Royal Rumble right now, and that if they were to consider him, it wouldn’t be until at least early January.

WWE officials claim if Roberts were to return to WWE for one final appearance in a Royal Rumble, it would likely be a last-minute deal, meaning he would most likely be one of the “surprise entrants” in the match.

      Jake, Scott Hall & DDP in the 2014 Rumble would be the greatest thing ever

      I think they will make him a surprise entry. I mean one year they had Jimmy Snuka and Roddy Piper in the same match just to fight for a min before Kane came in and eliminated both. The WWE probably just doesn’t wanna hype it cause Jake has no chance of winning they are not gonna let him win and be the main event at Wrestlemania. They probably just don’t want ppl to get all excited just to have him thrown over the top rope.

      Did anyone actually believe Roberts when he said he’d be in the RR?
      Wrestlers lie all the time.
