He may never have been WWF Champion, or any kind of champion in the WWE as a matter of fact, but Jake “The Snake” Roberts can now say he is a WWE Hall of Famer! When you think of the DDT you may think of a simple move, but when Jake “The Snake” Roberts innovated that maneuver it was a truly deadly finisher for many years! I think it is a tip of the hat to Jake every time someone uses it in the ring or even puts their own little spin on it.
Jake “The Snake” Roberts career was spent with a whose who of the A-List territories that were still active in North America. They include: National Wrestling Alliance, Mid-South Wrestling, World Class Championship Wrestling, World Championship Wrestling, Asistencia Asesoría y Administración, Stampede Wrestling, Smoky Mountain Wrestling, Georgia Championship Wrestling, Extreme Championship Wrestling and of course World Wrestling Federation. Congratulations to Jake “The Snake” Roberts on his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. The road hasn’t been an easy one for him, but it’s about the destination not the journey that matters. Let’s take a quick look at the WWE Hall of Fame video and then probably my all time favorite Jake “The Snake” Roberts moment in WWF.
