Jake Roberts Wants Kamala In WWE Hall Of Fame
'The Snake' wants to see 'The Ugandan Giant' Kamala inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame
There are myriad wrestlers who many feel should be in WWE’s Hall of Fame, with the likes of Lex Luger, Sid Vicious, and Brian Pillman just three names long overdue induction.
Another name notable by their omission is the late Kamala, and Jake Roberts wants to see that change, saying on the DDP Snake Pit podcast:
“There’s another guy who I think should definitely be in there,” Roberts said. “And I’m sure because of things that were said and done he’ll probably never get there, and that’s Kamala. Kamala was a great character and he made a lot of money. James Harris was a sweet, sweet man. What a voice he had as a singer. He could sing like a bird. You would never have thought a country and western singer, he’d made you cry, man.
“He had some really bad health problems and he became very bitter. He just wanted help and he said some things that, of course, are going to stick and will probably keep him out of the hall, but I would have loved to see James there.”
The criteria for the Hall of Fame has never been made clear, and Roberts has given his take on what any performer needs to be considered for a spot:
“At least five years,” Jake Roberts stated. “At a point where, you don’t have to be the main event, but you would have to be someone who shook the business. That went out and did the work. That’s the thing, gotta be one hundred percent in. Popularity has to be a part of it. You know, if the fans gravitated towards you, or rose you up, definitely. There’s so much to be considered.”
