It wasn't long after the official announcement of Jake Roberts being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame at Wrestlemania 30 that rumors surfaced who about who will be tasked with inducting the legendary performer. The first and most obvious name to spring up was Diamond Dallas Page, who helped Roberts turn his life around.
"Well I think in Randy's case, I think Randy he was pissed. I don't think he really wanted to go in. That's just my observation from a far. I never heard that from Randy but I'm sure now that the great Randy Savage has passed on, at some point he will be put in there. But I think there was--you have to accept. You have to go there and show up. And there was some heat there. And I think it was just about to get fixed too, just like the Warrior had a lot of heat there. I think he absolutely would've gone in. Maybe this year cause Randy was just coming out--when he died, Randy was just starting to come out. About to do a comic-con and stuff; do some autograph signings and stuff. So I think you would have seen him in there. Right after; not too long after his death, I don't think it had to happen right away but I would imagine that Randy will be in there. And I believe that Jake Roberts will get in. I think I'll get in. I think there will be a lot of guys that will get in there from Kevin Nash, Scott Hall. I think a lot of those guys will get in. Sometimes it just takes time and I think that Jake doing his turn around that he's done over these last 16-17 months--or 16 months I think it is--people are buzzing everywhere about Jake. So I think at some point, it would be awesome if it was this year but who knows? You never know."
"Are you kidding me? Abso-f**king-lutely. I mean you have to look at how guys drew. And there are fans that don't like the Warrior. There are plenty of fans that don't like Diamond Dallas Page. I get that. And the people who don't like him, really don't like him. But the people who love the Warrior; they f**king love the Warrior. And that was really obvious when we did in New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia--they can be the most critical fans on the planet. Me and Jake Roberts we smoked through autographs while we were there for those couple of days, but Warrior and Hogan came in and were doing the 100 to 150 dollar autograph thing and that line went out the door all day long. So you say what you want about Warrior, but the cat is true. He brought his energy. He brought a dynamic to wrestling at that time that was original. And I wasn't a big fan of his interviews but people fricking loved them! People loved that guy. I was a Jake Roberts guy back in the '80's, so I skate more that way."
