A name that has popped up in discussions backstage in WWE is Scott Hall. Management wants another big name performer to join Ultimate Warrior and Jake Roberts at the hall of fame cermony during Wrestlemania 30. The move would also enable WWE to promote their wellness program.
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.
While he still hopes to work the Royal Rumble later on this month, Jake Roberts has been pushing for WWE to let him work a program with Bray Wyatt, either as an opponent or as a mentor. No word yet on whether officials are interested in the idea at this time.
The feeling backstage during the Old School episode of Monday Night Raw was that Jake Roberts was a shoo-in to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame during Wrestlemania 30 weekend now that he has re-established a relationship with management.
While most wrestling fans know him as Captain Lou Albano, very few know about the origin of the nickname. As a youth, he excelled in sports, where he rose to the ranks of captain of his high school football team. It was there when people started calling him Captain.
