Jake Roberts: I Have No Idea Why Rick Martel Isn’t In The WWE Hall Of Fame, That’s A Crying Shame
Jake Roberts wants to know why former WWF Tag Team Champion Rick Martel isn’t in the Hall Of Fame.
The topic came up during a recent Q&A on “The Snake Pit” with WWE Hall of Famer Jake “The Snake” Roberts, who was asked why former WWF World Tag Team Champion “The Model” Rick Martel is not an inductee.
“I have no idea [why Rick Martel is not in the WWE Hall of Fame], that’s just a crying shame,” Roberts responded. “Probably because he wouldn’t come down [from Canada] to do it.”
Martel has been retired from professional wrestling since 1999 after his jump from WWF to WCW was shortened due to an injury he suffered in a match against Booker T at SuperBrawl VIII in 1998. Before his time in WWF, Martel was a star attraction of the American Wrestling Association, even holding the AWA World Heavyweight Championship.
