WrestleMania is always the biggest time of the year for professional wrestling fans, and next year's could be even bigger now that one WWE Hall Of Famer is teasing involvement with "The Show Of Shows."
Roberts is one of the greats in professional wrestling history, having worked with WWE from 1986 to 1992. He then did work for World Championship Wrestling (WCW), WWE's then-biggest rival, before returning to the independent circuit.
After a year on the indies Roberts then returned to WWE for one year in 1996 and then departed for Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW). Since 1999 Roberts has been working the indie scene, something he still does to this day at 62-years-old.
Throughout his legendary career Roberts won titles in notable promotions such as Georgia Championship Wrestling (GCW), Mid-South Wrestling Association, Smokey Mountain Wrestling, Stampede Wrestling, and World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW).
Despite the fact that Roberts worked with WWE for several years, he never was able to capture a belt under the promotion's banner. Regardless, WWE recognized Robert's iconic presence in the industry as well as his accomplishments elsewhere, and thus inducted him into the 2014 WWE Hall Of Fame Class.
In recent years Roberts has been in headlines after the release of his Netflix documentary, The Resurrection Of Jake The Snake. The film captured Roberts' battle with addiction and his road back to recovery and physical health - with help from WWE Hall Of Famer Diamond Dallas Page.
Roberts' fan-base grew even more after the film's release, and it seems as though WWE will be capitalizing on it come WrestleMania season. Roberts took to Twitter yesterday and teased involvement at "The Show Of Shows" in New Orleans next year, but was unable to say exactly what it was:
WWE fans went absolutely nuts for the news and are dying to know how far Roberts' involvement in WrestleMania will go:
