Jake Roberts Calls Warrior Untalented
In a recent interview with Busted Open radio, Jake Roberts had an interesting response to Ultimate Warrior going in to the WWE Hall of Fame over him:
“I know, man! I know that. But maybe they’re taking in assholes and not great talent. I don’t know.”
On whether he himself deserves it:
“Well whether you deserve it or not is not up to me man. And my life isn’t dependent upon that. If it doesn’t happen this year, maybe it’ll happen next year. I can only hope. I’m not going to let that take me down, man. Where as before, I could think of any reason to get high. ‘I didn’t get this; I didn’t get that; they screwed me over this; they screwed me over that.’ Yeah, yeah, yeah. I can fabricate any bullsh*t. But right now I’m just stating what’s the truth. The truth is I’m not in there and that’s okay. That’s okay. Look, I came back to Raw, brother! And I stole the f’ing show.”
