– On the flight to England this past week, there was a lot of discussion between WWE creative and Vince McMahon regarding the 2010 WWE Hall of Fame class.
The names discussed this week that Vince liked the most was Ted DiBiase, King Kong Bundy, Lawrence Taylor and Jake Roberts. DiBiase remains the most consistent name talked about but there is some concern that they might not be able to get Taylor, who wrestled Bam Bam Bigelow at WrestleMania 11.
Obviously there is also concern about booking Jake Roberts considering his problems with alcohol and his reputation among people in the business. Roberts blew WWE off a while back for promotional work on his own DVD so saying that he would easily come for a Hall of Fame payoff is stretching it.
Note: The information
crossed out above is marked as such since Jake Roberts directly refutes this portion of the report. Out of respect to Mr. Roberts, TBLWrestling.com has opted to mark this portion of the report as “crossed out.”
Regarding The Ultimate Warrior, he was talked about a week earlier but his name wasn’t seriously talked about on the flight to England this past week.
